It is 7 a.m. and 41°. The rain has come and gone, and today’s forecast is mostly sunny with a high of 49°.  Details for the next ten days are here.

Police are still looking for a dark, four-door sedan and the hit-and-run driver who killed a man on Valencia Street early Thursday. The Chronicle describes the victim as 30-year-old local painter Kurt Dalen, a 2010 graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute whose work was influenced by the many colorful murals in the Mission.

Batkid (Miles Scott) will once again make an appearance in our fair city. Brave the Bay 2013 starts at 8:30 a.m. with a fun run and features San Francisco police officers and others waging battle in a cable car pull from 11 a.m. to one p.m. to raise money for  the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the same folks who organized Batkid’s action-packed day a few weeks back. All day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., order an Irish Coffee at the famed Buena Vista Cafe and an officer will serve it to you, with all tips going to Make-A-Wish.

There are scads of holiday-themed events across the city scheduled for this weekend, and SFWeekly offers a list of the top five parties. For some daytime fun, check out Mission makers and designers such as Faze Apparel and Bi-Rite selling their wares at the 2013 SFMade Holiday Gift Fair starting at 10 a.m. at Fort Mason.

Later on, get your free PBR as long as it lasts tonight at the Pretty Pretty Collective on 22nd between Valencia and Bartlett from 8 p.m. to midnight. The PPC is hosting its winter art show with a DJ and work by a dozen local artists.
