It's another week full of goodness here in the City by the Bay. First slip on that cravat and your sailor hat for Yacht Club at Underground SF. Then take in the aural pleasure of Fleet Foxes at The Independent. Of course, this weekend is also the much-anticipated Treasure Island Music Festival. There'll be music, food and booty for all you pirates. On Saturday mix things up at Mixology at Dirty Martini. This weekend will also bring an explosion of APA arts at KSW's Apature Festival. And if you love 30 Rock, then you won't want to miss Alec Baldwin at the Commonwealth Club.
