FREE Beer and BBQ Tonight at Chrome HQ

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Almost old enough to start driving and forget about bikes.

If you’ve been living in San Francisco for at least the past 20 minutes, you’ve probably already seen half a dozen of Chrome’s signature seatbelt-buckle messenger bags slung over the shoulders of your peers. Like most citizens of Fogtown, Chrome relocated here from out of state (Boulder, CO to be exact), but over the past 15 years they’ve managed to make themselves in to a San Francisco institution/fashion statement. So to celebrate all those years cranking out high-quality bags, Chrome is throwing a 15th Anniversary Party with FREE Beer and BBQ at their SF Retail store in SoMa.

On top of the no-charge happy hour, everything will be 30% off if you need to pick up some new shoes or just a slick haul all your stuff in. And if you’re really cheap, they’ll be raffling off a limited edition anniversary bag with the proceeds benefiting the SF Bike Kitchen, so just throw a buck in and cross your fingers.

Chrome SF Anniversary Sale
Thursday, August 19th. Noon – 8pm
BBQ Noon – 5pm
Free Beers 4pm – 8pm
Chrome Retail Store 580 4th Street at Brannan [SoMa]
