Just when AT&T Park has had a chance to cool off after the Giants' World Series win, another high profile event comes to town. But this one's in tune with the holiday spirit. The Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl Game, recently renamed from the previous incarnation as the Emerald Bowl, is the premiere event in the college football bowl lineup.

Over the past two years, the Kraft Bowl has contributed to the financial equivalent of 200,000 meals to its three local partnership groups: the S.F. Food Bank, St. Anthony's Dining Room, and Glide Memorial Church. First known as the Diamond Walnut San Francisco Bowl in its inception in 2002, the Kraft Bowl is currently the only one in the 35-game bowl lineup to be connected to a social cause -- that's just how we roll. Saturday's matchup is the Navy VS Arizona State University, and is sure to be an exciting game. If you can't wait until Saturday, there's a week's worth of events leading up to the big game, including team visits, press conferences, a kickoff luncheon, and a rally at Union Square.

The Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl starts Saturday, Dec. 29 at 1 p.m. at AT&T Park, 24 Willie Mays Plaza (at Third St.), S.F. Admission is $25-$85.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
