The Sunset has been all blue skies and warm temperatures lately, and it looks like the week ahead will be more of the same, with plenty of activities to keep you active, entertained and even earthquake-prepared.

Pride week is upon us, and the Inner Sunset is ready to kick off the party with the California Academy of Sciences Pride Nightlife on Thursday. This is the Academy’s “annual celebration of equality, self-expression and SF Pride” for those 21 and up.  This year you can learn to vogue from the best or pick up a new cheer routine from Cheer SF, the official cheer team of San Francisco. There will also be a Drag Tribute to Bowie and Prince hosted by local celebrity drag star Heklina

On Friday, June 24th, consider getting outside for some fresh air: the San Francisco Botanical Garden, Japanese Tea Garden, and the Conservatory of Flowers will be free to the public, in celebration of Pride.

If you’re looking for a fun night out for the whole family, Friday Nights at the de Young Museum has entertainment for all ages.  The Friday Nights program always includes art activities, demonstrations, music and performances. General admission to the permanent collection galleries is also free of charge during Friday Nights. This week, the museum continues its six week dance program with Embodiment Project, a Bay Area based street dance theater company.

The Inner Sunset’s celebration of art continues on Saturday at new record store Western Relics, which will be hosting its second art opening with a reception from 6-9pm. “Options in Life” is a new show by Bay Area artist Jessalyn Aaland. Music and refreshments will be on offer as well.

On Monday, Inner Sunset and Sunset Heights volunteer neighborhood association SHARP will be hosting Shake Happens: Home Preparedness in Earthquake Country. This meeting will address what's likely to happen in the neighborhood when a major earthquake hits, and help you understand how to be prepared.
