FRIDAY, JULY 12

On the town

Beat goes on: "Resonate" at Public Works features headliners Jeremy Ellis, Teeko and Comma, along with resident DJs and beatmakers. [10 p.m., 161 Erie St., S.F.]

SATURDAY, JULY 13

A great cruise

Lake lounger: Have a boat-deck picnic with friends. Don your Gilligan hat for a few hours of flotation fun on Del Valle Regional Park's namesake lake. The newest vessel to hit Del Valle's water is the deluxe Suncruiser, with leather seats, an overhead canopy, CD player and plenty of lounge space. Bordered by the Ohlone Wilderness — that's 9,737 acres of golden, oak-drenched hills — you'll be perfectly content floating past 16 miles of shoreline and two sandy beaches.
