There’s quite a bit of fun going on out there this weekend and going forward. The SF Marathon is on Sunday, Inner Fog wine bar is finally open, and we may even get some warmer weather. For those of you keeping score, word is this is in fact the coldest summer in 40 years in San Francisco. Ugh.
So in no particular order, here are some links of interest for you to enjoy:
– Our friends at the Muni Manners blog have published a book! And if you buy it online, using the code BEACHREAD305 you get a discount. The Manners Ladies have always been such enthusiastic supporters of the NJC, so a little promo was in order for ’em here.
-The House Formerly Known as “Yes We Can” is doing another “Really REALLY Free Market on August 1st. This is an absolutely free event – if you see something you like, take it, and if you have things you’d like to get rid of (clean and in good condition), drop it off! I attended last year and it was a lot of fun.
-On August 7th, Inner Sunset residents are planning a Inner Sunset Sidewalk Sweep. Volunteers will gather at the entrance to the Inner Sunset Farmer’s Market at 9:15am, and help polish up the neighborhood. RSVP via email and let them know you’ll be helping out. This is the fourth such event, co sponsored by Inner Sunset Park Neighbors, the Department of Public Works and Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi
-The always awesome artist Niana Liu has some new artwork on display as part of the SF Arts Commission Art in Storefronts project. Her project is at 630 Kearny, and among other things, features a “Muni Duck.” Niana’s local-based art makes for a great gift, or for just having something that’s truly unique.
-If you’re not already checking out the amazing photography of Julie Michelle at her I Live Here: SF project, well, get over there and start checking out the amazing photography and the written words of your fellow SF citizens. Her most recent project features locales familiar to riders of the N-Judah. Check it out!
-Also, Mad Men returns on Sunday. While the Internet allows me to watch this at home on my TV, I would love to find a bar that would be willing to show this on their many TVs and serve Old Fashioneds to me and the many Mad Men fans I know are out there. However, I haven’t found one yet and time is of the essence. So, blog friends, I ask you – got any suggestions? Please post in the comments below!
Finally, as always, I’m happy to host Guest Bloggers, especially as I get busier with some new sites and blogs I want to launch soon. Just email me and tell me what you’d like to write about and we can fit you into the rotation.
Most importantly, have a great weekend!
