Jam out, eat caviar, and feed the sharks in SF this week.

Tuesday, July 18: Toast National Caviar Day @ Wingtip
Where: 550 Montgomery St. (FiDi), wingtip.com

Wednesday, July 19: Listen @ SF Botanical Gardens
Where: 1199 9th Ave. (Golden Gate Park), sfbotanicalgarden.org

Thursday, July 20: Laugh @ Public Works
Where: 161 Erie St. (Mission), speechlesslive.com
Why: Fall out of your chair as SF comedians and public figures deliver visual presentations with zero knowledge of the slides or even the topic at this improvisational competition. The Wall Street Journal called it "comedic gold." Tickets ($13-$75) at Eventbrite.

When: Noon to 7pm
Where: 2 Marina Blvd. (Marina), thesfmarathon.com

Sunday: Befriend a Shark @ Aquarium of the Bay
When: 9am to 8pm
