Now that it looks like we finally have a break from the rainy weather, there's no better time to get outside to see what's new in your hood. In the Mission, half of Dolores Park is fenced up and off limits, but that's not stopping Film Night in the Park, which celebrates its 20th season with Caddyshack. The Bicycle Music Festival rolls into Golden Gate Park this weekend and peddle power will come in handy as the 57th Annual North Beach Festival clogs the streets of that storied SF neighborhood. Expect a capacity crowd at Stern Grove with the first installment of the free concert series, featuring Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, and celebrate BBQ season as top Bay Area chefs compete in a sausage cook-off at Tailgate Throwdown.
