Two participants, one in costume, walk through a parking lot to get to the start of the ING Bay to Breakers race May 17, 2009 in San Francisco, California. Now in its 98th year, the ING Bay to Breakers 12K is one of the world's largest and oldest footraces, featuring world-class athletes in addition to costumed runners.
SLUMP BUSTER: The Giants may be limping into the weekend but at least they don't have to play the San Diego Padres. With Tony Gwynn's Alma mater out of town, San Francisco can lick up its wounds and feast on a team they have owned so far this season: the Houston Astros. AT&T Park is one of the places to be this weekend as the good guys look to crawl back up in the standings.
RUNNING IN THE BUFF: No offense to the Giants but Sunday the place to be in the City won't be AT&T park, unless of course you are easily offended. If nudity and public drunkenness (we know that is not suppose to be going anymore) is not your cup of tea, then stay out of the City as the zaniest race anywhere kicks off. The annual Bay to Breakers will happen again this weekend. Hold tight to your lunch.
SLIMY TREATS: If you are looking for something to throw up before you attend Bay to Breakers, or just in case you are an oyster aficionado, you will want to head down to the Great Meadow at Fort Mason Saturday for the annual San Francisco Oysterfest. In addition to great food and good times, this year's festival will feature the musical sounds of Cake, the pride of Sacramento, and the Raveonettes and Jackie Greene.
