Happy Friday, ya’ll! As usual, there are lots of cool events going on around the SF Bay Area this weekend — something for everyone’s palette, I think — and lots of interesting activity across the internet. Enjoy the round-up:
- Mill Valley Film Festival: Considered one of the top ten film festivals in the US, the Mill Valley Film Fest will be running from (yesterday) until Oct. 17th. They’re showing 143 films in total, 21 of them produced by local artists and many of them featuring stars like Hilary Swank, Colin Firth and Juliette Lewis. There’ll be Q&As, gourmet food and snazzy drinks. Ticket info here.
- San Francisco Fleet Week: Come out the San Francisco waterfront tomorrow and Sunday from 1-4PM to watch the world famous Navy Blue Angels do their fearless tricks and maneuvers in the air. And if planes aren’t your thing, head to the Fort Mason Center on Oct. 9th for the Summersalt Music Festival (from 11AM-8PM). Tickets are $20 at the door.
- Crush Party 2010 at V. Sattui Vineyards in St. Helena, CA: Harvest time is definitely the greatest time of the year in the Wine Country. Come to V. Sattui Vineyards this Saturday (Oct. 9) from 6:15- 9:30PM to do some crushing, tasting, learning and eating. $79/person.
Interesting Internet Findings
- Apparently, furniture companies often offer customized versions of their pieces, but it’s nearly impossible to find out how to do it. Well, this website — Ego Paris — lets you customize their already-awesome furniture, and gives you style help along the way. Bravo!
- Now, this is pretty funny, and pathetic: Gawker wrote an article about how robbers these days are “unable to carry out a simple robbery” and provided some very convincing examples. What is the world coming to!?
- Have you noticed the sudden existence of pumpkin patches around town? Well, if carving them isn’t your thing, Saveur Magazine provides 12 delicious non-carving, non-pie recipes for pumpkin dishes, such as pumpkin ravioli and pumpkin soup with sage. Mmm.
Over & out. Have a marvelous weekend, fellow Inhabitants!
