Unsure of what to do this weekend? Try out these ideas.

Local Beer and Bands Join Forces at The Bay Brewed Festival

When it comes to microbrew and music, SF has long been a pacesetter for the rest of the nation. Plenty of brewers head to clubs in their off-hours, and everyone knows musicians can't resist a pint (or five), but the two industries haven't joined forces much-- until now. Popular music blog The Bay Bridged is bringing together four local bands and nine NorCal breweries for an all-day extravaganza at the Verdi Club this Saturday, with unlimited sampling and unlimited rocking out.

Weekend Getaway: Mendocino Crab and Wine Days

Crab season is upon us, and unless you're ready to grab a net and spend a day on the pier, you'll have to enjoy the fruits of someone else's labor. The weather looks clear this weekend, so pack your overnight bag and head up to Mendocino for a weekend of crab and wine.

Listed below are seven full length releases (sorry, Girls) from the year that particularly stood out to us, along with five additional LPs too good not to mention.
