Everything You Need to Do in SF This Weekend

Updated On 03/22/2017 at 12:59PM EST Updated On 03/22/2017 at 12:59PM EST

After a long week of work, it's tempting to use the weekend as a chance to catch up on sleep, Netflix, ordering food, and not showering for a few days. But if you do that, you'll miss all of THIS super-fun stuff, including a cheese festival, corn dog-eating contest, and all-you-can-handle-somewhat-respectfully wine tasting. So get up and go 'cause you could get corn dogs and cheese delivered, but they won't taste nearly as good.

Friday - Sunday
Mar 24-26
Various locations in Petaluma
The California Artisan Cheese Festival is your chance to eat tons of cheese while learning a little something about it as well. The three-day event includes lunches, tours, seminars, and dinners, but you don't want to miss "The Ultimate Best Bite" on Friday when you get to taste and vote in a cheese competition, while sipping on wine and beer. You Gouda go. And that's my time! Thank you.

Saturday is National Corn Dog Day and you know what that means: You need to stock up on Tums… as you devour delicious fried hot dogs on sticks. Luckily, you can do just that at SoMa StrEat Food Park from 11am to 5pm. There will be food trucks with corn dog specials, live music, buckets of PBR for $17, March Madness on the TVs, and, yes, a corn dog-eating contest.

If you like wine, you should definitely head to the Uncorked Spring Wine Festival where you can taste over 100 varietals, including local faves, international selections, and a bar dedicated solely to bubbles. There are two sessions, 2-5pm and 6-9pm, but if you get VIP tix, you can enter the first session an hour before everyone else.

Patton Oswalt is one of the funniest comedians around, which you know if you follow him on Twitter. You should definitely follow him there… and also follow him to The Masonic where he'll be performing two shows (7pm and 9:30pm) on Saturday night. Only bummer? Tix are only available on StubHub.
Sunday
Mar 26
Anchor's Blackberry Daze IPA release party is going down at the Anchor Beer Garden at The Yard from noon to 7pm. The first 50 guests get Anchor swag and a free pint of Blackberry Daze. After that, all pints are $5. So basically get there before noon because free beer is the best beer.
Sunday
Mar 26
Hunt for flea market treasures and golden eggs at Treasure Island Flea's Easter party. There will be an Easter egg hunt, food truck brunch, DIY craft workshops, and, best of all: mimosas and seasonal cocktails. Hop on over there on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm.

Sign up here for our daily San Francisco email and be the first to get all the food/drink/fun SF has to offer.
