Ah Summer Fridays. Those glorious half, full, or floating days off that make having an office job in San Francisco sooooo much more tolerable. Assuming you’re not using them to take down the West Coast’s most iconic road trips, you’re gonna need some sort of plan for what to do on them. And that’s where this comes in: a bona fide Summer Friday calendar, which lines up something super fun for you to do every Friday from here until fall (you know, when summer ACTUALLY starts).

Oh and even if your evil warlord of a boss doesn’t give you Summer Fridays, he does give you sick days though, right? Right.

Get out of town Unless your company hates America, you should have July 3rd off since the 4th is on a Saturday. You’re not going to be able to see the fireworks in SF, so why not go on one of these under-the-radar road trips?

Array Admit it: you still haven’t been to one of the 21 best new bars in America. Finally address that with some day drinking (Summer Friday, FTW!) at The Interval at Long Now, which crazily opens at 10am. Then step outside and right into California’s largest weekly evening street food market: Off the Grid Fort Mason.
