Love Me, Love My Poncho Fashion Show

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Ponchos: the wave of the future? Hardly. Nevertheless, the comfy paunch-concealers hold a loyal and devoted following spanning some pretty disparate groups: stoners, moms, racially insensitive restaurant mascots. They’re pretty much the original Snuggie – a little more abrasive, perhaps, and shorter, but cut from the same proverbial cloth – and, now that I Google it, a poncho Snuggie actually exists. Someone beat me to the punch. Oh.

For those of you with one or four of these bloat-disguising, lounge-encouraging wonders in your closet or at least a well-patterned blanket on your bed that you can cut a hole in the middle of, your day has come. Dolores Park holds a poncho fashion show and swap on Sunday at 2 p.m. (registration starts at 1:45). Love Me, Love My Poncho features poncho-appreciative photographers and a real catwalk with only one caveat to potential models: no shawls.

Lucy Schiller - Destitute Dispatcher

Lucy Schiller - Destitute Dispatcher

Lucy's been able to live lots of places but holds her cornfed/pie-fueled Midwestern roots most dear, maintaining too loudly and too often that the Outer Richmond is the Midwest of SF: driven through to get elsewhere and knocked around for no reason (but what other neighborhood has bison?!). You can find Lucy letting things languish in her fridge, purposefully (limoncello!) or not (yogurt...), mouthbreathing, scouring Golden Gate Park for apartment-worthy items, sleepily serving up double nonfat half-caf-half-non-caf lattes at a certain cafe, skulking in various other ones, and yelling under cover of night and costume at SF Bike Party.
