Summer is in full bloom in San Francisco, and new surprises are at every turn. At Mint plaza, a new Farmer's Market is sprouting up this Wednesday, and just down the street you can catch home-grown burlesque with Sister Kate at 111 Minna. Add some flavor with Miguel Migs at Salted Summer One Off and keep it kosher with the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival. The newly single and always-lovely Kelis will bring her milkshake to the yard with Robyn at Mezzanine while the Dead Weather work up a storm at the Warfield. And nothing says summer in SF like the build up to Burning Man. Get the scoop on the latest "Burner Couture" and everything you need to know about the festival at Prepare for the Playa 2010.
