Who says print is dead? Regina Connell isn’t listening. The Founder and Editor in Chief of online magazine Handful of Salt is thrilled to be able to bring the magazine into the print world. Covering “the intersection of craft and design,” Handful of Salt will be launching their inaugural quarterly print edition this month, with the drive to offer a unique aesthetic perspective on the modern artisanal movement through features offering behind-the-scene interviews and striking photography.
More than 40 years ago, the Exploratorium first opened to the public thanks to physicist Frank Oppenheimer, with the hope of transforming the way people thought of science education by turning it into a hands-on experience.

Feast of Words: A Literary Potluck
A monthly event where foodies, lit enthusiasts, and writers come together to eat, write, and share.

When: 7 – 9 p.m., Tue. 12/18
Where: SOMArts Cultural Center, 934 Brannan St.
For six whole decades, the Bay Area has been a hotbed for risk-taking theater.

The film raises the curtain on the long history of progressive and experimental theater in the Bay Area with more than 45 interviews (think Robin Williams, Bill Irwin, and Peter Coyote, to name a few) and rare archival performance footage.
