It’s 7 a.m. and 67° this Sunday morning. It’s partly cloudy with a slight wind. Details for the next 10 days can be found here.

Today, celebrate poetry and literary arts at the second annual Flor y Canto Festival on Bartlett Street, between 24th and 25th, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be music and activities for the whole family. Poets and authors, including San Francisco Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguia, will read family-oriented works. Organized by Talleres de Poesía and Acción Latina, the event is for all ages and free. For more information, visit the event’s Facebook page.

Lila Downs, a 2013 Grammy winner, will perform traditional Mexican and contemporary music with her band at the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival from 1 to 2:30 p.m. For more information, visit YBCA’s website.

Mission Street theater The Dark Room, between 18th and 19th, is showing Godzilla Live, and it’s been favorably reviewed by KQED, which says the production is charmingly “low-budget, lackadaisically paced and rough around the edges.”

There’s a new bar in the works for the neighborhood set to open in a space on Alabama between 19th and 20th streets. Called The Tradesman. It is the product of “Zarin Gollogly and Spencer Lafrenz, the owners of Mission-based Harrison Woodworking + Design,” Eater SF reports.

Restaurants are criticized as being part of a bubble driven by prospectors investing in the neighborhood. Do bars fit in this?
