Upcoming: December Divisadero Art Walk

by Andrew Dalton on November 13, 2009

Maybe you’re new to the neighborhood, or maybe you never make it over to Divisadero because you are an antisocial curmudgeon, but in any case if you didn’t make it out to either the June or September Divisadero Art Walks then you’ve been mission out on your best tri-monthly (is that the word for that?

Post-Work Drinks and LOL’s

by Andrew Dalton on November 3, 2009

Some people really hate mashups. Personally, I’m OK with taking two great ideas and slamming them together into one awesome thing. Think about it: those Palm Pilot things never really caught on with anybody except total Gordon Gecko-types until they smashed it up with a telephone and an iPod and called it an iPhone. Now [...]

Look, we all know there’s a whole shitload of stuff you could be doing tomorrow night for Halloween. Maybe you’ve got a friend shelling out for VIP Bottle service at some club on Van Ness, or maybe you’re going to mourn the loss of Halloween in the Castro for the third year in a row [...]

Venture Out: Dead Man’s Bones at Bimbo’s 365 [Free Music!]

by Andrew Dalton on October 27, 2009

Halloween is right around the corner. So close, in fact, that you’ve probably already had time to pick out a clever costume and then decide that it won’t work because, duh, everyone is going as Max, King of the Wild Things. But instead of letting that get you down, just put off your trip to [...]

by Andrew Dalton on October 26, 2009

In case you didn’t make it over to Workshop for the last minute (but by no means hurried) IndieMart vintage event yesterday, here’s some shots of what you missed.

AggroPa Tonight! Drinks and Tarot and Books at The Page

by Andrew Dalton on October 12, 2009

Well, once again it looks like I’ve forgotten to do my homework. I totally forgot about the One City, One Book program designed to get San Franciscans talking about the same book instead of just making each other feel guilty for skipping over Malcolm Gladwell’s latest in favor of some straight-to-big-screen Dan Brown paperback they [...]
