Pick Us Up in Print!
We’re really proud of our first print publication, Volume One: 25 Ways to Be a Local. The magazine celebrates a colorful checklist of activities that every San Franciscan should accomplish at least once. We packed it full of intel on the best underground dining clubs, surf hangouts, art crawls, places to space out, and other SF-centric explorations. Like our website, 25 Ways to Be a Local features an emphasis on design and photography with original content and stories by our Bold Locals, who write about their urban discoveries.
Want to know how to get your hands on one? You can buy the magazine directly from us for $3 plus shipping and handling and we’ll send it to your mailbox. We are also offering a four-issue subscription for only $12 plus shipping and handling. Over the next six weeks, we will also be at various locations around the city passing out complimentary copies of 25 Ways to Be a Local, and will offer free copies of this first issue at select cafes and retail shops. This is a one-time deal, though — supplies are limited and future issues won’t be free. This week, you can find copies of Volume One: 25 Ways to Be a Local in The Castro and Hayes Valley. Like our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter for weekly updates on where you can pick up your free copy.
Getting a Taste of October
October is a busy month for Bold Italic soirees. First up, on Monday the 3rd, you can beat the lines and lick a few different seasonal flavors of Smitten’s famous liquid nitrogren-made ice cream. For $10, you can be part of an evening tasting with owner Robyn Sue Goldman at her shop’s special Hayes Valley shipping container. Join the fun here.
The following week, on Saturday, Oct. 8, we’re hosting Meditations on San Francisco, a music, art, and meditation party with the historic San Francisco Zen Center. Check out the blissful drones and estatic melodies of Barn Owl, Date Palms, and Danny Paul Grody; interact with David Wilson’s “stained glass” installation; learn the basics of meditation from SFZC’s knowledgeable staff; and watch vintage film footage on meditation from SFZC’s archives. We’ve sold most of our tickets to this special event, but if you act fast there are still a few spots up for grabs. And then stay tuned for a special Bold Italic Halloween extravaganza announcement in the next couple weeks.
Mollusk’s Travis Becker spends most of his time thinking about the waves, but you can still ask the guy for a recommendation on what to eat in his Outer Sunset hood. Craving kale potato soup? Try Judahlicious. In more of a grilled cheese sandwich and cauliflower soup mood? It’s all about Outerlands. Get more of this surfer’s top spots in his Found Local interview.
