Good clean, squeaky, fresh, wholesome fun. That's what you'll be having this weekend, courtesy this rundown of (all totally family-friendly) (unless your children don't like zombies) daytime events.
Corazon Under the Dome
Head from work to the mall where, after sifting through the pink and plastic fineries at Claire's Accesories, you can sit back, relax, and take in a show projected on the Westfield's glorious dome. Today's offering is an animated 3D art show, showcasing an iconic medley of photography and images of San Francisco that celebrate the city’s incomparable saga. The show is set against the backdrop of classic San Francisco songs, bound to get those TGIF toes tapping.
