Mount Diablo is one of the dominate features of the Bay Area landscape, visible from each of the surrounding nine bay counties. It’s one of a trifecta of local summit ascents that every climber should commune with on a regular basis.
Check out some shots of Friday at Outside Lands, lots of dancing, smiles, foggy and chilly weather, and good times were had. Check back tomorrow morning for more pics from today.
Right around July is when that "summer" funk creeps in. Sundresses hang lonely in San Francisco closets, and we walk around pasty in pea coats. Though it is a bit chilly, it makes it that much more exciting waking up to a balmy day in the city. And what can make it even better? Parks and sandwiches. To prepare for your upcoming sunny adventures, here are some awesome parks, and what treats you should eat and drink nearby.
Music festivals are all about surviving the elements with an unwavering, stupid smile. Coachella has its stinging heat, Bonnaroo has its mud and stench, Burning Man has its omnipresent dust. Outside Lands is no different; here at the Polo Grounds of Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, we have an annual date with Ocean Beach’s non-summer. And we disregard it.
But enough about the weather. The music still matters most.

It’s supposed to be in the 80s in San Francisco on Saturday, but you know what? That’s almost too hot for SF. No one has air conditioning. If the breeze decides to stop cooperating, even Outside Lands won’t seem like much fun. Instead, c’mon east, where air conditioning reigns and there’s no park big enough to host four stages of music at once.
Outside Lands is definitely dominating the San Francisco cultural calendar this weekend. However, if you are after something a little quieter, there are a ton of cultural options awaiting you on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. Here are three that are tempting us this weekend.
When we first looked at Nextdoor five weeks after it launched late last year, the San Francisco-based startup had already helped people create 550 private social networks for their neighborhoods across the country, 100 here in the Bay Area.
Since then it’s grown to encompass 4,000 neighborhoods in 48 states and is adding at least 20 more networks every day.
