Even broke-asses will have a chance to see what all the fuss is about – it’s FREE! There will be a ceremony to celebrate 12.12.12 – the end of the Mayan calendar. Meet at 24th and Bryant from 6-8 p.m. tonight to observe the indigenous ceremony, a low-rider exhibition and Latino/Mayan artwork.

The ceremony will be led by the Concilio de Ajq’jab – Mayan Curanderos to embrace the end of the Long Count Tzolkin Mayan Calendar, the 5,200 tun (tun + 365 day period and welcome the 5th processional cycle of the earth which will bring the new spiritual transformation of higher level of consciousness, enlightenment and immerse ourselves in its rhythm that we really need at this time current time on mother earth. The Bak’tun is the new beginning of an amazing era of change, understanding, reconciliation and peace to forge a better future for present and upcoming generations.

This will bring us up to date as we enter the Age of Aquarius and turn the page, so to speak, into a new era. Don’t forget your umbrella in this downpour! Keep your eyes out for Noah and his Arc passing through the flooded streets of the Mission for a surprise appearance as well…

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Originally from San Diego, Heidi migrated north to study journalism at SFSU and interned for the SF Bay Guardian writing music stuff. She later embarked on a study-abroad program in both Denmark and Holland, and basically never came home. For six long years, she froze her ass off in Oslo, Norway, pretending to be a viking princess, trying to figure out how to survive in the most expensive city in the world. The other two years were spent frolicking on the beach in Spain - sipping on sangria in between being tossed around Europe working as a stressed-out journalist. Heidi currently works at for a non-profit cultural exchange program, helping others experience life from a different perspective. She is thrilled to be back in SF, magnetizing the obscure, and scavenging the city for fun, free things to do.
