May 14-22: The San Francisco Unified School District's annual event at the de Young features artwork and performances from K-12 students. Most SF residents don't live in neighborhoods with many school-age kids, so this is a great way to get your cuteness fix and support the struggling school system.
May 15: Sure, there's an actual race being run, but most of the hoopla at Bay to Breakers revolves around the parade of costumed craziness that trails the athletes across the city. Be sure to conceal your booze well, as further crackdowns are threatened this year.
May 21: The annual Asian Heritage Street Festival brings a mixture of culture, food, and music to the Asian Art Museum and the surrounding Little Saigon neighborhood. It's one of the country's largest pan-Asian cultural events.
May 28: He's responsible for what's arguably the single most iconic song about San Francisco, so it's safe to expect that Tony Bennett will sing about leaving his heart behind when he appears as part of the SFJAZZ concert series. Expect plenty of jazz-age standards and a big dose of charm.
