Out of the dungeon and into the street, nothing's shocking at the Folsom Street Fair and its celebration of leather, rubber, whips and chains in SoMA. For a little liquid courage before the event, or an easy excuse for a drink from one of San Francisco's many skilled mixologists, Cocktail Week is back with tasty libations all week. New Belgium's Tour de Fat brings bikes and brews to Golden Gate Park and the SuperHero Street Fair hosts action-packed fun with community heroes and some of the city's best DJs. Buzz band Poolside works the decks with J Boogie and DJ Theory at Monarch and Bay for the Bayou - Part Deux arrives at Bimbo's with New Orleans R&B/funk legend Allen Toussaint and the California Honeydrops
