Things To Do In San Francisco Bay Area Today, This Week, Weekend; SF Events This Week: San Francisco Events Calendar (Food, Drinks, Music, Art, Culture & More)

Dolores Park - San Francisco

When it comes to planning social calendars, figuring out what to do this weekend, people constantly are frustrated with browsing pages like Eventbrite that are cluttered with repetitive events, don’t like to subscribe to endless emails from each establishment, promoter or business and would rather unlike from endless posts from people and places on Instagram and Facebook.

What I have learned over my years of living in the Bay Area is that being connected to the right people who know what you like, what you might find interesting or just always know what’s going on is a benefit that many don’t have. If you are like most people, you don’t find out about cool events and pop-ups until your friends post photos on social media the night of or next day.

Being familiar with events can make it easier to grow and maintain social circles and plan better, more interesting dates. Below is a list of curated events (recurring and one-off) I have found most interesting and beloved around the Bay Area.
