It almost sounds like a dare to try to get to 40 restaurants, six bars and nearly 20 wineries in one night, but tonight you'll get some help as they all come to you. Head over to AT&T Park—where everyone will be under one very large roof—and alternate between the likes of SPQR and Bar Crudo. Except in this dare, everyone wins.

Mint Juleps, Pre-Bay to Breakers and an All-Nighter
The weekend is swimming with sharks.

Pick up togs like the black waxed-cotton hooded jacket previously only available in NYC or online at the kick-off party. History in the making...

The 99th B2B race is coming up fast. So in addition to your hard-core training, costume prepping and keg arrangements, you'll want to stop by the Independent for drink specials, some pre-race trash talk and a double feature of Prefontaine and Without Limits.

Cinco de Mayo at Cantina

Here to help: Cantina, opening their doors at the prime hour of 2pm and serving $2 beers and $5 tequila shots. After all, you only have one day to celebrate...
