This week could NOT get any bigger. Jerry Seinfeld comes to town, the Golden State Warriors will probably win Game 1 of the Championships, 'Casablanca' gets even classier, and there's a big party filled with pig parts. Here's everything we wanna do:
TUESDAY, MAY 30
49-MILE SCENIC DRIVE TALK: A vital part of being a part of San Francisco is getting to know the City's rich history. Here's a highly-affordable opportunity to learn about the 79-year-old scenic drive through and around San Francisco that was created for the 1939-40 Golden Gate International Exposition. Kristine Poggioli and Carolyn Eidson walked the entire route and explored the drive's history and fun facts along the way. They present their findings at this (presumably) informative lecture and book signing. St. Philip's Church, 275 Diamond Street, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., $5.
WEDNESDAY, MAY 31
DAYBREAKER SF: This sober early-morning dance party has swept the millennial milieu. Wednesday's theme is "wigs & onesies" which you can interpret any way you wish. Enjoy yoga, free coffee, healthy juices, breakfast bites, live performances, and "funky beats by Taj Turner" at this pre-work dance party. Love + Propaganda, 85 Campton Place, yoga at 6 a.m., dance party from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., $25 - $35
HARVARD BAND: See the Harvard University Band perform pop tunes and traditional Harvard fight songs while you enjoy a delicious food truck lunch. The band (of nerds) is currently embarked on a West Coast Tour as part of the university's requirement that students and alumni inform everyone ever about where they go to school. How do ya like dem apples! SoMaStrEat Food Park, 428 11th Street, 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., free.
THURSDAY, JUNE 1
WARRIORS, YOU GUYS: Thursday night in Oakland, the Golden State Warriors take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first game of the NBA Finals (for the third year in a row). This is a huge deal and if you're not going to the game (let's face it, you're not), a number of lively bars around town will be hosting viewing parties. We include this on this week's round-up because non-sports people need to know when these things are happening. It's gonna come up on Friday, folks. Oracle Arena, 6 p.m., $1 trillion.
BALLET STUDENT SHOWCASE: Catch the rising stars of ballet's next generation at the San Francisco Ballet School's annual Student Showcase. The school's big gala dinner hosted by the San Francisco Ballet Auxiliary will be held alongside Thursday's showcase, but fans can catch performances (without the fancy dinner) on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission Street, Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., Thursday at 6 p.m., Friday at 7:30 p.m., $45+
FRIDAY, JUNE 2
COLOSSAL (COMEDY & MUSIC) CLUSTERFEST: You've already heard about this a thousand times. Let's make it a thousand and one!

Friday's line-up includes Beth Stelling (finally, a famous Beth), T.J. Miller, and Kevin Hart. Civic Center Plaza and Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, Friday through Sunday, $99.50 to $699.50.
CASABLANCA LIVE: The whole 'orchestra performing the scores to movie screenings concept' is pure gold. This Friday and Saturday, the San Francisco Symphony takes on the beloved classic, Casablanca. Here's looking at you, MTT. Davies Symphony Hall, 201 Van Ness Avenue, 8 p.m., $69+

HEATH NEWSSTAND LAUNCH: Print is not dead! Heath Ceramic's brand new old-school newsstand features international design publications, hard-to-find printed matter from far-off cultures, food and lifestyle magazines, and daily newspapers - all adjacent to the iconic ceramic company's showroom. Next door, of course, is Tartine Manufactory, making this hotspot a bespoke slice of heave for people who can afford $50 plates. Saturday's launch features a bevy of freebies throughout the day, from fancy fresh juice to bites from Tartine in the morning to Fort Point Brewery in the late afternoon. Meet the folks behind the California Sunday Magazine and scoop up some free samples of the written word.

SUNDAY, JUNE 4
PRIDE KICK-OFF: Virgil's Sea Room hosts Queers of Color and Friends to raise money for the APIQWTC Scholarship Fund, the GLBT History Museum’s upcoming exhibition about Angela Davis and the Black Panthers, and San Francisco State University’s Queer Ethnic Studies Initiative. Swing by for a no-host bar, a pot-luck (bring food to share!) and a fun afternoon hosted by 2017 SFPride community grand marshal Amy Sueyoshi.

COCHON 555 HERITAGE BBQ: Dozens of chefs take on 1500 pounds of pig at this pork-tastic high-end eating extravaganza.

Magnolia Brewing Company, 2505 3rd Street, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., $125 - $400.
