One glance at our calendar made one thing very clear, there's much too much happening this week to keep it all to ourselves. So put on your walking heels and get ready for some serious summer shopping:
Ramp It Up!, Wed. 6/9 from 5:30-8:30 p.m., $35: Browse locally-made apparel, food and home decor while getting a sneak peek inside Ritual's SOMA headquarters at the fundraiser/launch party for new non-profit, SFMade. Oh, and to make up for torturing you with the delicious smell of coffee for the last 3 hours, you get to take home a bag, gratis.
American Apocalypse Launch Party, Thurs. 6/10 from 7-10 p.m., Free: Head to Harputs to peruse a painstakingly curated mix of high end vintage fresh from the brand spankin' new local vintage site for hipper-than-thou guys and gals. And being as such, you can expect free booze, snacks, beats from DJ Primo Pitino and a performace by Manicure Versace. Needless to say, come dressed to impress.
Durable Goods Concern Presents Meet Your Maker, Fri. 6/11-Sun. 6/13, Free: Find everything from impeccably tailored clothing and accessories to jeans and custom skate decks (just in time for Father's Day) at this end-all-be-all men's shopping event from the dudes behind Man Up!. If you're thirsty, seek out wines by Scribe and Keplinger. If you need to refuel, make a beeline for the Four Barrel Coffee stand.
thread | bare Runway Show: Fri. 6/11 from 7-10 p.m., $10-20 sliding scale: Score one-of-a-kind pieces from the likes of Turk+Taylor and KITTINHAWK right off the back of models as they sashay down the runway...no, seriously. And if somehow you're still left wanting more, stay for a burlesque performance from all-boy revue SF Boylesque.
Lightbox Crafty Hour, Sat. 6/12 from 12-5 p.m., Free: Spend your Saturday afternoon stocking up on local jewelry, homemade soaps, textiles, illustrations and oh-so-much more at the Make-Out Room.
