KNBR Giants FanFest
Get an up close and personal view of the Commissioner’s Trophy given each year to the world champion, which we all know who that is.

Coit Tower Guided Mural Tour
The recently restored murals inside Coit Tower date from the 1930s and 25 local artists, and tell a vivid story of the city’s early days. Now get the scoop on what exactly all those scenes relate to with this docent led tour. Saturday, 2/7, 11am, 1 Telegraph Hill Blvd.

12th Annual Big Lebowski Party
A film and fandom that’s taken on a life of its own, no more evident than at this annual event celebrating all things Lebowski.
