Fresh Produce Free-For-All Comes to Hayes Valley This Sunday

Hayes Valley Farm has managed to turn around from a true tragedy (a devastating bee attack) and organize an event that will make every San Franciscan happy: a weekly event offering free fruits and veggies titled, appropriately, the Fresh Produce Free-For-All.

Phish Phans Freaking Out for Greek Theatre Tix

Although they're not really on my radar, it's actually become difficult to escape any mention of Phish's three-day takeover of Berkeley's Greek Theatre this weekend. And because the shows sold out months ago in approximately five minutes, many "phans" too spaced out to click a few buttons (and others who tried and failed because of an overwhelmed Ticketmaster server) missed another chance to see Phish---otherwise known as the second coming of the Grateful Dead.

Lower Haight Art Walk This Friday

One solid year down, many more to go. The Lower Haight Art Walk is celebrating its anniversary (and the Lower Haight) this Friday with its second annual neighborhood art extravaganza, featuring a spackling of things San Franciscans like: local bands, art, food carts, discounts and a scavenger hunt.

Supreme Court Rules Prop. 8 Unconstitutional

The city of San Francisco can breathe a collective sigh of relief this afternoon. After a months-long, ugly duel over Prop. 8, the District Court Judge Vaughn Walker (a gay man himself) ruled the measure unconstitutional under due-process and equal protection clauses.

Although we write a lot about indulging ourselves in food, drinks and sweets, sometimes it feels even better to do stuff that's good for others. Here are a few ways you can lend a hand in the next couple of weeks to people who really need it.

Another "Future of Journalism" Discussion

There's a cool panel discussion about the evolution of local journalism coming to the Booksmith in the Upper Haight on August 9th. A few crucial faces at the forefront of the ever-metamorphosizing media landscape will be leading the talk: The Bay Citizen's Lisa Frazier, SF Public Press' Michael Stoll, and Mission Local's Lydia Chavez.

Whiskey Thieves Owners Open Little Bird Coffeehouse in the 'Loin

When I laid eyes on the glazed and sprinkled Bob's Donuts in the display glass of Little Bird Coffeehouse, the newest coffee addition to the Tenderloin (which came to our attention yesterday via The Tenderblog) , I immediately knew this was a spot worth its salt.

Little Otsu to Close Its Doors on Valencia, But Remain Open on the Internet

Sad news: Mission Local reports that after eight years on Valencia Street, vegan publishing house Little Otsu is closing its doors this December. Run by Jeremy Crown and Yvonne Chen, the lovingly-curated neighborhood shop is a place to grab comics, books, day planners and other adorable knick-knacks.

4th Annual Polk Village Pub Crawl This Saturday

Well, this could get out of hand quickly. The 4th Annual Polk Village Pub Crawl is raging through the neighborhood this Saturday at 4 pm for a day of drinking, drinking and more drinking to start off the weekend. But take it slow, or you'll be out of commission until Monday.
