Beer and Fitness: Heavy Metal Aerobics at Workshop

I know Monica raved about Workshop back in October (Full Disclosure: We’re all great friends!), but I’ve never actually been to one of Kelly Malone’s DIY classes even though I live two blocks away and walk by all the time just so I can look longingly through the window at

FREE Vintage Paper Fair This Weekend

The San Francisco Vintage Paper Fair comes around every few months, but I’m going to go ahead and say I still had no idea what it was. Vintage Paper? Like old posters? Or like Grandpa’s old letters to Grandma? Or maybe just the soggy brown bags from malt liquors passed?
