July 25 - 27: Pedalpower and other weekend events in SF 


MEX I AM: The Mexican consulate and the de Young museum join forces to launch the “MEX I AM: live it to believe it” multidisciplinary art festival. [6–8:30 p.m., 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive, Golden Gate Park, S.F.]

A great paddling excursion

SUP, Tahoe?: We’ve all seen the stickers: Keep Tahoe Blue. But how blue is it? Find out on a gentle stand-up paddleboard excursion starting from Kings Beach. Adrift Tahoe rents steady SUPs that are perfect for first-timers. They’ll get you sorted for a southeast paddle toward Crystal Bay. You’ll be mesmerized by how clear the water is — a turquoise oasis where large, sunken boulders look like they could be 10 feet below but are actually 100 feet down.
