San Francisco Map Fair at The Lodge

There is something about old maps that stirs us deep within.  Seeing a drawing of a now familiar land mass rendered unusual due to the lack of contemporary structures, seeing a drawing that is meant to convey a comprehensive image of a place rather than a functional series of directions on how to make it from point A to point B by taking the fastest root causes us to feel a sense of possibility that, quite frankly, few modern experiences can recreate.   Read the rest »

Longtime residents of the Bay Area might recall two end-of-summer festivals that have long been favorites for fans of street fairs and live music.  We are referring to The Downtown Martinez Italian Street Painting Festival and the Polk Street Blues Festival (the latter of which was held in San Francisco, along (surprise!)
