The Best Weekend All Year Long
So Much To Do, So Little Time!


Wow, what a phenomenal weekend we're going into here in SF! I've seen a whole lot of folks in from out of town in the past two days so if you're in from out of town... "welcome" and I'm giving you all a high-five for having excellent timing!

So, what's going down during the best weekend all year long in the greatest city on Earth?

SF Love Parade & After-Party - We all know that San Francisco is without a doubt America's most open-minded city, so it was naturally the first choice to host the American version of Berlin's world-famous Love Parade. This massive parade and street party down the city's main thoroughfare of Market Street and culminates in a gigantic outdoor festival at the end of the route. Right out in front of city hall (that's how we do it in San Francisco, baby)! Not to be missed.

ArtCar Fest 2007 - The largest congregation of crazy, beautiful, goofy, and brain-meltingly outrageous ArtCars on the entire coast! You haven't truly lived until you've cast your peepers on jaw-dropping automotive glories like Ripper the Friendly Shark, Cowasaki, The Mirror Image, and the gothic majesty of the you-have-got-to-see-it-to-believe-it Carthedral. There just isn't anything more wonderful than seeing these beauties rolling down SF streets.

6th Annual Docfest - San Francisco's famed documentary film fest is one of my favorite reasons to snuggle down into a movie theater seat, scarf popcorn by the handful, and get hypnotized by the silver screen. This year's flicks include American Scary which answers all those burning questions you have about great TV horror hosts and hostesses of yesteryear, Luchando a flick about sex-working hustlers in Cuba's gay underground, What Would Jesus Buy? a cross country anti-consummerism bus ride with Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping Gospel Choir, El Mechanico Loco the highly praised look at a punk rock hotrod racing team, and the downright awful sounding Absolute Zero, a flick about a railway worker freezing to death trapped inside a refrigerated cooler car full of animal carcasses. I'll definitely be checking out a few of these!

Folsom Street Fair - The quintessential San Francisco street fair! This event is always one of the most fun of all of the crazy events we have here in SF, and this year the organizers have upped the ante with the addition of an "erotic artists' alley" full of some of our favorite local comic creators including Justin Hall, Steve MacIssac, and Drub. I've gotta give the Folsom Street Fair a standing ovation for showing so much appreciation to the art form of cartooning this year. Nice!

And lest we forget the very best thing happening all weekend...

JH Williams III @ the Isotope - Oh, I'm completely biased, I know! But seriously, who wouldn't want to come to the world's sexiest comic book store to meet one of the greatest living masters of the comics artform? One look at Mister Williams work on Promethea, Desolation Jones or his current run on Batman will get you just as mouth-foamingly manic about his art as we all are!
