Local sweet-tooths finally get their day in the sun with the return of the Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival this weekend. For two days, approximately 40,000 chocolate lovers are expected at the square for cooking demonstrations, live music and family-friendly activities. Meanwhile, pork fanatics will gather for High on the Hog, a meat extravaganza featuring various preparations of pig parts. Local fashionistas can get ready for the fall season at SFFAMA Fashion's Night Out, also a great opportunity to pick up some new threads for the launch of the Everyone's Doing It Party. The Mission Creek Festival is back with events this month on both sides of the bay, and there are plenty of other opportunities to rock with RTX, The Kills, Avi Buffalo and Band of Horses.

Congratulations to Ikeda Presberry, last week's winner of 2 tickets to Young Jeezy w/ Freddie Gibbs!

Your chance to win 2 tickets to LovEvolution ends at midnight tonight. Be sure to sign up today before it's too late!
