Just when San Francisco seemed to dry out from the nine days of consumption for SF Beer Week, the Bay Area Brew Festival brings the buzz back to Fort Mason with food trucks and more than 100 beers. Chocolate lovers will be equally pleased at SF Chocolate Salon 2012. Local rockers on the rise Geographer and Ty Segall appear on separate bills this week, while national standards in their respective genres Rocky Erickson and Stephen Malkmus return to stages in SF. Blow Up celebrates seven years of awesome parties and DJs put their technique to the test at Red Bull Thre3Style: SF. The San Francisco Green Film Festival returns for its second year and eager shoppers are letting it all hang out (in their undies) for a chance to get some new threads at Desigual's Undie Party.
