Lost San Francisco History

From a desolate west coast sand dune, to bustling gold rush town, to smoldering pile of ashes, to booming metropolis, to smoldering pile of ashes, to one of the most expensive places to live in America, San Francisco has experienced a lot of change over the years. A lot of that change has been lost to history, but Guerrilla archivist Rick Prelinger and The Long Now Foundation keep the images of long lost San Francisco alive in the 7th annual Lost Landscapes of San Francisco screening; Tuesday, December 11, Castro Theater, San Francisco,

Mission Block Party


Every Friday night in the Mission is a party, but at the 5th Annual Mission Holiday Block Party you can shop more and maybe drink a little less. OK, you don’t have to drink less (if you don’t mind risking some you-break-you-buy action) as the Valencia street shops and galleries stay open late for parties, sales, and most importantly, free drinks; Friday Dec. 7, 5 p.m. – 10 p.m.,


Popup Shopping

Adorn is pulling all of the best new designs from its closets for the first of a series of popup home furnishing boutiques in Burlingame. The popup is only for 10 days (or until stock disappears) so don’t miss out; Dec. 6 – 16, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday-Friday, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. 1426 Burlingame Avenue, Burlingame
