Sure, you were planning on spending August cat-sitting for your Aunt, but as it turns out, there are actually 12 things going down in SF this August that are more fun than even that. We know, we couldn't believe it either. Check 'em out...
These Cosplay Wings Are the Closest You'll Come to Being a Bird
When: August 6 Where: The Aquarium of the Bay
Celebrate the best week of the year by actually hanging with real-life sharks while you drink and dance to a silent disco. It's like the field trip you did in fifth grade, but WAY better.
When: August 17 Where: Golden Gate Bridge
Why walk across the GG, when you could swim its length? Sure, it might be freezing and there might be a strong current, but at least you avoid the tourists. So... silver lining?
When: August 23 Where: A friggin' 150ft yacht in the Bay
TURN DOWN FOR BOAT... party with a ton of food & drink vendors from all over SF while you cruise around the Bay. Maybe get another round of shots while you're there?
When: August 23 Where:Northstar Cafe
CrawlSF is back with the 12th annual North Beach Bar Run, so put on your running shoes and check in at Northstar to grab your pub map, and try to hit up every bar on the list in record time.
