It's a short week after the long Fourth of July holiday weekend, but there is no shortage of things to do. Get started with Green Drinks and mingle with eco-conscious "green drinkers" over sustainably grown foods, cocktails, and unique entertainment. You might not be able to save the environment in one night, but you can save the day with a killer costume when the Superhero Street Fair returns to San Francisco. Get in the crime-fighting mindset with Another Hole in the Head Film Festival, featuring films like Ticked-Off Trannies with Knives, The Violent Kind (made by local filmmakers), and other gory selections. Escape the SF fog at Vaikhari, a three-day music and festival in Saratoga featuring 69 DJs, and get inspired at the Charmaine Olivia Art Party, featuring SF Station's featured artist for July. Enjoy the outdoors with San Francisco Symphony at Stern Grove or the San Francisco Triathlon, and wash away your Monday funk with free bluegrass with Toshio Hirano.
