FREE Drinks, Snacks and Shenanigans at the Mission Holiday Block Party

So much to do this week!  Another reason I love this time of the year — it’s super busy, but in a fun, endless-ugly-sweater-parties kind of way.  Right off the heels of last night’s Divis Art Walk comes tonight’s Mission Holiday Block Party, a FREE event that over forty local stores,

Comedy Day in Golden Gate Park — 5 hours of FREE SHOWS!

Comedy shows are expensive. They’re almost not worth it in my opinion. Say you shell out $25 for a ticket to Cobb’s or the Punch Line, and you’re planning on having a great time. But then comes the drink minimum, which, for an average beer [we’re talking Bud here], its
