The Annotated SFPD Pride Weekend Public Safety Notice: Includes helpful tips like "Call your mother" and "Don't be an idiot!" [H/t: SFist]

Don't Forget to Fill Up on Shark Fin Soup This Weekend: But really, why limit yourself to just one questionably legal delicacy? We're thinking foie gras shellacked lion sliders with shark fin salsa. [H/t: SF Weekly]

13 things to do in Oakland this week, some almost as cheap as complaining about having nothing to do: Speak for yourself. We do all of our complaining in a bathtub filled with gold coins. [H/t: Oakland Local]
