Lunar Update June 15th, top 3 things to do in SF for free

 My list of three things to do in SF on a shoestring budget.

Despite being broke and never quite knowing what the future holds there are always free fun things to look forward to. Astronomical events are exciting even if you wont be able to witness them. Tonight is a full lunar eclipse that can't be seen from North America but, if I was in Siberia for this like I had planned back in 2007 I would be in for a 100 minute show of lunacy. This is the almost full moon on the rise yesterday.

Another fun thing to do when you are broke is experimental cookery. Here we have what I dubbed Magical Mushroom onion shepherds pie. We had a lot of shallots and onions, a couple potatoes from the garden some spinach, and six little mushrooms. I have a cold so I couldn't taste it but when I served it to my hungry roommates who were watching the judging portion of Chopped (timed chef battles with strange ingredients) they said it was good and didn't chop me.

 #1 San Francisco Bicycle Music Festival!!!
 This will be the best free event to attend all year in SF. I will be helping to make smoothies and ice cream via pedal power! Of course it is recommended to bring a little money dough boy. So you can tip the bands and buy some ice cream. Please read the How To participate guide so you don't show up in a mini skirt and no undies.   
What to bring? What to wear? Read up: How to participate in a pedal-powered event.
