Nailed it, Chloe…nailed it.

It’s no secret that we residents of San Francisco loooooooove our city.  If we didn’t, we wouldn’t live paycheck-to-paycheck, in, like, the fifth most expensive place in the country.  Yeah, it’s foggy sometimes and flipping over the handlebars of your bike when the wheels get stuck in the MUNI tracks is inevitable, but hey, we have THE GIANTS!  TAQUERIAS!  THE SEWARD STREET SLIDES!  And amazing, amazing art.

Maybe you’ve seen the work of graphic designer/animator/all-around-super-talented artist Chloe Fleury; maybe you haven’t.  (Michel Gondry definitely has; this awesome stop-motion animation co-created by Chloe won 1st prize in a contest judged by the whimsical genius himself and is included on the Be Kind Rewind bonus disc!)  Either way, you’ll want stop by The Curiosity Shoppe tonight, when Chloe’s exhibit, “San Francisco Made of Paper,” opens.  Really cool three-dimensional poster/installations of SF neighborhoods, like the Haight-Ashbury one posted above, will be featured; think of how exciting it’ll be when you spot yours and immediately identify the inside jokes of the hood.  Oh, and thank God there will also be FREE snacks to coat your insides so they don’t explode from the cutesy-ness of it all.  And I mean that in a very good way.

Opening of Chloe Fleury’s “San Francisco Made of Paper” at The Curiosity Shoppe Friday, February 18, 6pm – 9pm 855 Valencia St. (btwn 20th & Cunningham) [Mission]

Christy Jovanelly - Cheapskate Commentator

Christy Jovanelly - Cheapskate Commentator

When Christy announced she was leaving her family's Southern California home and moving to San Francisco, her mom said, "Have fun in that den of sin." This is the only (however sarcastic) advice Christy has ever taken from her mom, who also told her to join and cover her eyes during sex scenes in movies. Christy puts her creative writing degree to good use by locating the typos on Chinese food menus and spends most of her time challenging friends to all-you-can-eat contests and trying to get that one bartender at Zeitgeist to smile.
