Valentine’s Day Flashmob Pillow Fight

Flashmob Pillow Fight CHAOS!!!

Valentine’s Day makes me want to punch myself in the face.  It also makes me want to punch everyone else in the face (especially cute couples'”they’re the worst).  But how to justify random acts of violence on the stupid day of love?  Clearly the geniuses behind The Great San Francisco Pillow Fight, held annually on Valentine’s Day, understood my conundrum.  At 6pm on Valentine’s Day, pack up a pillow and some latent aggression and make your way to the Embarcadero for a sweaty and feathery bout with hundreds of strangers.  Who knows?  Maybe you’ll even find a date.

Some people boycott the idiotic Hallmark holiday.  Those people are either super smart and sophisticated or super single and bitter (clearly I fall into the former'or do I?).  If you happen to be a lovey-dovey V-Day kind of person, then I hope that the night proves to be fun and romantic.  And I hope that on the morning of February 15th you wake up next to someone you love, someone you like, someone whose name you remember, or, at the very least, the tattered remains a flashmob pillow.

Sunday, February 14th, 6pm sharp!

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe's youth was split between California and Kauai, frolicking on a macadamia nut farm in the tropics and landing finally in the Bay Area. Raised by super-Jew hippies, and the youngest of three sisters, Chloe learned early the virtues of thrift, economy, and green living. To the chagrin of her parents (who hoped, of course, for a Jewish doctor or lawyer), Chloe has put her degree from UC Berkeley to great use by becoming a folk singer. As "Chloe Makes Music" she plays shows throughout SF and beyond, donning vintage frocks, selling handmade merch, and pinching pennies as she sings for her supper. Calling Berkeley home for the last six years, you can think of Chloe as the website's East Bay Correspondent, opening your eyes to the hippie-filled, tree-hugging, organic-loving, vegan-eating, but way-overlooked and awesome assets of Berkeley, Oakland, and beyond.
