San Francisco-based Timbuk2, popular for its contemporary, streamlined bags that come in a variety of shapes and sizes, has introduced a new line of packs named after local bars. And, since the crew behind Timbuk2 loves an excuse to party, they're hosting a week-long bar crawl starting on Monday--and inviting the community to come out and join them. So strap on your Timbuk2 bag and head out to one of the below locales for fabulous drink specials and a chance to win Timbuk2 goodies. Sounds like an excuse to party to us.
Additionally, there will be live sewing by Timbuk2 bag designers each night, a make-your-own-button area (bring a pic, if you’d like something custom-made) and a closing party at the Hayes Valley retail store on Friday night. Oh, and don’t forget the backpacks. They’ll be around, too.
