Presented by The Bold Italic, Get Lost Travel Books and Gear, The Triple Crown and Nomad Body Piercing
Recently we've noticed little pocket neighborhoods sprouting up throughout the city worthy of individual celebration. We named them “microhoods” just for the heck of it, and hundreds of you came out to celebrate FolSoMa and the Mission Mid 20s.
micro · hood - n. A piece of a neighborhood, perhaps only a block or two large, so glorious that it deserves its own name; i.e.: The Mission Mid-20s is a shining example of a microhood.
Our latest microhood discovery is Mint Slope – where Market Street runs through the shadow of the Federal Mint building and San Francisco's famous fog burns off to reveal all-night eats, artisanal cocktails, travel books, comic books, cutting-edge design, and collector vinyl treats.
The Triple Crown, already renowned for their incredible DJ-powered happy hours and themed events, are going to be serving up an even more compelling version (meaning cheaper) of their famous Taco Tuesdays with carnitas, carne asada, pulled pork, chicken, and potato with poblano pepper tacos for $2 plus some amazing drink specials.
Get Lost Travel Books and Gear will entice you to explore the world and your city with complimentary beer and a generous store-wide discount on travel accessories, luggage, globes, atlases, and over 9000 travel literature and guidebook titles.
Nomad Body Piercing will be knocking 18% off all piercing throughout the evening.
Design shop and art gallery Rare Device will be offering complimentary wine, edibles, and 20% off everything in the store, including their beautifully curated collection of apparel, home decor, and their own Rare Edition Artist series.

Al's Comics will be offering 10% off everything in the store - and upping the discount to 20% off for backstock - for anyone who says "Mint Slope" while making their purchase.
