This is the big weekend for the opening of the new California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park. Saturday's the big day. Traffic and parking might be a hassle, so your best bet will be public transit. Click here for transit info. I visited there a couple of weeks ago, and it is awesome! Much of what you remember from the old Academy, plus lots of new features and a new environment will make your visit a completely new experience.
Across the bay Berkeley will strut its stuff. The tree sitters are gone, but there's still plenty things to be Berkeley about, so enjoy the 13th annual "How Berkeley Can You Be?" parade and festival on Sunday. Last year 90 organizations participated. The parade starts at 11 at California and University. The festival starts at noon at Civic Center Park. Click here for info, and have a wonderful weekend!
