Labor Day Weekend has come and gone with the unofficial end of summer. For most of the country that means crisp air and cooler temperatures. As a true San Franciscan I look forward to this time of year because it marks our Indian Summer, the two warmest months out of the year in the city. In September and October, San Francisco is blessed with warm weather and clear blue skies. The warm weather also triggers the social season in the city. As a foodie and cocktail town, techies and businesspeople alike mix and mingle at several fabulous events listed below. For those that live in Seattle, be sure to check out Chris Warfield's post about tech events here.
