Summer is coming to a close, with Labor Day over, kids back in school and Burners returning to the city.

But there's still an opportunity to soak up a little extra summer fun this weekend, with options like a walking tour of the Tenderloin, outdoor cinema in Bernal Heights, a tag sale at Duboce Park or a run in the fog in the Richmond.

The Tenderloin is one of San Francisco's most misunderstood neighborhoods, particularly for recent SF transplants in the tech field. To promote understanding and engagement with its diverse community, TechEquity and Tenderloin Walking Tours are joining forces for a 90-minute "neighborhood discovery" tour, highlighting the Tenderloin's history, politics and contributions to San Francisco's culture. While the tour is targeted at tech folks, all walkers are welcome.
