5 Events That Confirm That Indian Summer Is Here!

Well folks, it's about that time to welcome our infamous Indian Summer with open arms. Yes, we have missed her dearly, with those extra amped up temps and mini skirt worthy evenings! Parks will be brimming with all of our best pals, while everyone we meet seems to be in an upgraded mood. To celebrate this precious heat-wave, a party or five seem in order! We are still showing our support for the America's Cup and team, while bopping between shopping pop-up to an off-the-wall art collab. Round-off the week with a killer date night and you will be strutting that glow that only sunshine can bring!
Dockers Sounds Of San Francisco
It's possible that you are a little broke after a long summer of music festival hopping, but have no fear the rhythmic fun doesn't end just yet! Dockers is partnering the America's Cup to bring you some awesome locally grown talent in a super free way. This week Nexus Rock will take the stage to boogie your Sunday right into Monday. If you have yet to hear the band, they are full of energetic beats that will have you shaking it in no time! Along with these awesome concerts, one lucky individual can win a $200 dockers card, on top of even more swag (like meeting your band of choice from the lineup)! Well we know what we are doing with our Sunday!
When: Sunday, September 8,
Where: America's Cup Pavilion, Pier 27/29 (at Embarcadero); 415-412-4642.
Score Pop-Up At The Academy Of Sciences
You probably don't often head out for a Thursday night with a bag of clothes that you no longer wear, but this time it's for a good cause! Gather stuff that no longer appeals to you, and get ready for a super satisfying swap! Aside from getting to rifle through some cool San Franciscan's closets, you can stop by for some nail art, a style consultation and of course a drink! Peek a fashion show from Bay based designers and maybe even stop by to see the marine life! That good cause we were talking about is all leftover items going to Dress For Success and Goodwill, cool huh?
When: Thursday, September 5, 6 to 8:30 p.m.
Where: 55 Music Concourse Drive (between Hagiwara Tea Garden and Nancy Pelosi drives); 415-379-8000.
Lazy Twins Pop-Up At StoreEnvy
It takes a lot of will power not to blow your paycheck the minute you see the merch over at the Lazy Twins e-store, so how do you think you'll feel seeing it in person? Well prepare yourself because their latest hot items will be calling the StoreEnvy brick-and-mortar home for the entire month of September. With all their quirky and fashionably forceful looks, you will be hard pressed to leave empty handed. If you aren't yet familiar with the awesome brand, heres a little tidbit, the twins design their sweet line from across the word one grabbing inspo from the Mission district while the other is all the way in London town adding in that bomb british style!
When: Through September, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Where: StoreEnvy, Crocker Galleria, 50 Post Street (between Kearny and Montgomery streets); No Phone.
Hot Dog, Hot Dog Open Reception
Although the title may be misleading, this is not a hot dog eating competition. It is however, a wonderful collaboration dedicated to classically amusing characters and good old pop culture. Artists Justin Hager and Kristine Reano worked together (literally, painting at the same time) to create the works of art that you will be smirking about for days! The left-handed Hager and right-handed Reano found it even more fun to create the works completely together, incorporating all kinds of found objects. The nice people over at Four Barrel Coffee will be hosting the artists so join them and all their illustrated personalities for an evening of good times.
When: Thursday, September 5, 6 to 9 p.m.
Where: Four Barrel Coffee, 375 Valencia Street (between 14th and 15th streets); 415-896-4289.
Film Night In The Park, Moonrise Kingdom
If any movie seems fit for an evening park viewing, Moonrise Kingdom is it. You may have been guilty of over-watching this flick when it first came out (we know we are!), but it never hurts to indulge in a favorite. Cuddle up beneath the night sky, perhaps with an irish coffee in hand. You can thank Wes Anderson for the perfect and free date night later (donations are appreciated), but for the moment, soak up the adorable adventures of the youthful budding romance at hand. It may be one of the last dusks of summer, so getting the full experience is kind of necessary. Pack and picnic and throw down some blankets for this one, it's time to get cozy!
When: Saturday, September 7, 8 to 10:30 p.m.
Where: Washington Square Park, 600 Columbus Avenue (between Filbert and Union streets); No Phone.
