What:
The 7th Annual Celebrity Crab Festival at Union Square. Union Square may not be home to crab fishermen, but we know how to celebrate San Francisco's local seafood treasure!

Members of the San Francisco 49ers team up with local chefs to demonstrate the art and intricacies of cracking a crab. The noon-time demonstration will be followed by a timed crab cracking contest to see who can crack the most crab.

For a minimal sampling fee, local restaurants will provide tastes of the city's beloved Dungeness and patrons can sample beer and wine at the Wine & Beer Garden.

Music from Diego's Umbrella, family entertainment including a children's booth and activities for the entire family.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to purchase a 49ers player autograph for $20 with proceeds benefiting the 49ers Foundation and receive a 49ers Respect Rim hat.

This year, the Crab Festival will be a "zero waste" event. In partnership with Golden Gate Disposal & Recycling and the San Francisco Department of the Environment all materials used at the event will be compostable and recyclable.

2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl.

So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Yesterday, we took a look at the 2021 San Francisco 49ers offense to see how it compares to the team's offense from 2019. Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case.

'I hope Trey is going after Jimmy's job': 49ers' George Kittle says Garoppolo thrives on competition

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle spoke with Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group this week. In what was probably some prep-work for the likely-to-be top discussion topic once training camp kicks off next week, the All-Pro player was asked about the upcoming training camp quarterback battle ... which may or may not be an actual battle. Players may be tired of discussing Jimmy Garoppolo's job. It has been a big storyline the past two offseasons. Last year, the focus was around the 49ers possibly replacing their quarterback, who had just helped guide the team to a Super Bowl, with future Hall of Famer Tom
