Photos: Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Sunday

The crowds thinned out for the final day of our beloved bluegrass festival and the music seemed to mellow as well. Eighty-eight acts appeared on six stages over three days and, like every year, this year's festival was an absolute success.

The combination of music, beautiful October weather, and lively crowds came together for the perfect storm this weekend for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival.

Scenes of the City: The America's Cup Begins

America's Cup kicked off in a thick pea soup of fog over the Bay. Spectators came out in droves and there was no shortage of action on the water. Back on land, the America's Cup Village showcased wine tasting, games for kids, live info sessions, and other concessions.

Are you watching America's Cup? 

Scenes of the City: The Embarcadero

Indian Summer is finally upon us! Get outside and enjoy the hot temperatures. The Embarcadero is one ideal place to people-watch, soak up the sun, and soak up the beautiful views of the Bay. 

Scenes of the City: Golden Gate Park

The days may be shorter but the city is warmer and this weekend is promising temps in the upper 70's (finally!).

A San Francisco summer day is best spent in our crown jewel of Golden Gate Park where you can walk, bike, skate, picnic, play, and laze the day away. There are endless secret spots to stumble upon and you could spend years exploring and never see it all. 

Need inspiration? Here's how some locals and visitors spent last weekend in the park.

Scenes of the City: San Bruno Mountain State Park

It's in the corner of your eye as you're headed to the airport–the ridgeline dotted with radio towers looming as you drive south. San Bruno Mountain State Park is a sprawling ridgeline of trails and roads that takes up 2,326 acres along SF's southern edge.

Escape from SF: Anderson Valley

Drive 100 miles north up Highway 101, then veer west toward the ocean on Highway 128 and you'll find Anderson Valley. It's a place to escape the crowds, channel your inner cowboy, sharpen your wine knowledge, and see more stars than you have in a long time. 

Scenes of the City: Sumo Wrestling in Japantown

Sumo wrestlers from all over the world convened in San Francisco's Japantown this weekend for a series of exhibition matches.

Sunday Outside Lands photos: Furry Hats, Food, Wine and More Food

If you thought the party would slow down on Sunday in preparation for the upcoming week, you were dead wrong. Outside Lands continued in a fervor with an abundance of food, wine overflowing, and the foggy weather brought in an array of odd hats. Mark your calendar for next year's Outside Lands 2013!

Saturday Outside Lands: Crowds of People, Fog, Food, and Music

Check out photos of Saturday's Outside Lands. Craziness, arrests, drinking, huge doses of music and, of course, the beautiful Golden Gate Park scenery.
