San Francisco CA 94109 Map
Microhoods are magical little bits of the city. Hidden within plain site, these pocket neighborhoods are packed with treats for your eyes, ears, and tastebuds. Fot this latest round of hyper local celebration, we've decided to playfully tag a stretch of Polk St. that's cast a spell on us "Hocus Polkus."
Join us on Polk beween Bush and Post for some Hocus Polkus wizardry. Co-presented by The Blue Buddha and the Lower Polk Art Walk, this culture crawl focuses on the ways that merchants, artists, and other community members are intersecting to create a new chapter for this storied patch of San Francisco.
We've partnered with the new monthly Lower Polk Art Walk for an entertaining evening of bold deals, delicious nibbles, inspiring art, and complimentary libations, sponsored in part by Zipcar.
