Good Times at the Ginza Bazaar

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

I often forget how much I love Japantown. It’s a completely understated neighborhood that offers amazing food, unique shopping and hidden gems that are often lost in its 'œsomewhere in the middle' location of San Francisco. I am grateful for any legit excuse to head that direction, and such an excuse is happening this very weekend!

The San Francisco Buddhist Church is holding its annual Ginza Bazaar on July 24th and 25th from 11am to 7pm. There will be some of that previously mentioned amazing food, a raffle, children’s games, boutique, tea salon, and bingo. BINGO!

Saturday afternoon, there will be a kendo (Japanese martial art of swordsmanship) demonstration and Japanese kamishibai (storytelling) performance. On Sunday from 1-3 pm, there will be a performance of the O-Bon, a Japanese folk dance. Entrance is FREE and fun will abound. See you there!

Ali was born and raised in the Wholesome/Creepy capital of the world, Salt Lake City, UT. Once she was old enough to blow that pop stand she escaped to the place that was the anti-SLC: The Peoples Gay-public of Drugifornia aka San Francisco (holla 30 Rock!). You can now find her throughout this glorious city slurping Pho and scheming with her best friend Pinky doing what they do every night; try and take over the world.
