SF Weekend: St. Patrick's Day, Presidio Picnic, Mayoral Candidate Forum, More

This weekend, San Francisco offers myriad ways to celebrate the wearing of the green, so we've balanced our roundup with events that celebrate everything from the beloved St. Patrick to stand-up comedy.

Tonight, check out local digital art and an interactive game room in North Beach, or swing by Wags Hotel in SoMa for a dog-friendly comedy show.

St. Patrick's Day festivities start early on Friday afternoon with a block party in the FiDi and another in Jackson Square.

The annual St. Patrick's Day festival & parade starts Saturday morning in Civic Center Plaza with floats, bands and decorated cable cars followed by traditional Irish dancing and food at the United Irish Cultural Center, a city-wide pub crawl, and even a St. Patrick's Day-themed dog parade in Fort Mason.
