Last Thursday we teamed with Yammer, EpicenterSF, Twitter, and Blick for our 2nd Annual Mid Riff Microhood party. Mid Riff focuses on the businesses on Market between 6th and 7th streets. More than 1,000 people came out to enjoy copious libations, gallery openings, special deals, and live performances.
The awesome folks at Mosey created one of its custom maps to help everyone guide their way through the event. Posted at Satelite 66, Bold Italic staffers were pouring Thorny Rose wines while guests viewed the beautiful art show inside. There was also an opening at Hospitality House for the “In My Dreams” show.
The Burning Man Project had performances throughout the evening from the colorful and energetic Carpetbag Brigade performing the acrobatic show “Sailor and Sirens” on stilts. GAFFTA, also showcased a few of its live urban prototyping demos along Market Street including the “Glowing Crosswalk,” “I Just Wanna Hold Your Hand,” “Street Stage,” and “Smart Stops.”
Huckleberry Bicycles and Chrome teamed up to show off their amazing handmade messenger bags. Chrome seamstress Morgen was making bags on the spot to be raffled off later in the evening. If that wasn't enough Speakeasy Brewery was freely pouring not one, but two, of their delicious brews – Payback Porter and White Lightning – at Huckleberry.
To be sure that our guests being plied with free alcohol had a good foundation for their tummies, Show Dogs offered an extended happy hour, which included specials on their delicious dogs. Bicycle Bánh Mì was also serving up amazing Vietnamese sandos at SQFT for the night.
