Metallica Day @ AT&T Park

Friday, May 16, 2014

Giants fans got a treat Friday when the city's favorite metal boys showed up at A&T Park to perform the national anthem, auction off custom guitars for charity, and throw out the first pitch of the game. Metallica's James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett gave a Hendrix-conjuring performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner," while Lars Ulrich handled duties from the mound. Unfortunately, the back-and-forth battle on the diamond proved too much for Giants, with the Miami Marlins defeating San Francisco 7-5. SF Weekly photographer Christopher Victorio was on hand for Giants Day at AT&T Park and sent back these photos of the Metallica boys mulling around on the field.

    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
