Sure, its streets are clogged with tourists nearly everyday this time of year, and the sit-lie law battle continues ever since Newsom stoked the debate after moving to the neighborhood, but Upper Haight still has plenty to offer. See it in all its beauty at the annual Haight-Ashbury Street Fair this weekend and let your freak flag fly. You can find more good vibes at the Harmony Festival in Sonoma, or just over the Bay Bridge at the Sunset Music and Arts Picnic at Treasure Island. Dig in at the Soy and Tofu Festival in Japantown and see your neighborhood in a whole new light as the annual Naked Bike Ride rolls through SF. Enhance your weekend with Sunday Streets, Bayview Edition and finish at Café Cocomo for the 2nd Sunday Season Opener.
