There is no better time to celebrate Bay to Breakers and its fun, freaky, and funky San Francisco roots as racers and partygoers gather Sunday for its 100th year. Warm up the day before and shuck and suck some nutrients at the 11th Annual Oysterfest, featuring local oysters and musical pairings by Rodrigo y Gabriela, Pepper, and more. The boy-girl duo action with The Raveonettes and The Kills will keep things rocking during the week. Meanwhile, the ladies can hold it down for two nights with Shecky's Girls Night Out. Limber up with Bike to Work Day and keep your legs loose with the latest installment of Blow Up! Once the race is won, keep the party going with the Magic 8 Ball Tour Featuring A-Trak.
