0 comments

main In a city that loves to party, it can be hard to get any shut eye from the days of Thursday through Sunday. Yep, we love a good reason to cheers to pretty much anything, but sometimes our social calendars can get a little sloppy. Not to worry, we did all the dirty work to give you a concise roundup of the coolest events to start penciling in your planners. So, just sit back, relax and read on because this is your guide to having some serious (and possibly unexpected) fun, from learning to create the perfect threadless T-shirt to playing beekeeper for a day!

Cloud 9th: Inner Sunset Microhood
We think it's about time the Inner Sunset gets to step out of the shadows (er, fog) for some doting attention. The Bold Italic has knighted the hood's 9th Street as its latest microhood, and — you know what that means! — a kickoff party is definitely in order. So, brave the temperamental weather, and head out to hang with TBI and co-sponsor Crossroads Trading Co. to celebrate what's going down on the block. In the case that you feel peckish or parched, the list of servings is endless with restos like Nopalito, The Cutlery, and Patxi's dishing out the grub. Yum!
When: Thursday, July 18, 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: 1248 9th Avenue (between Lincoln Way and Irving Street); 415-681-0100.

Skillshare Classes
Ever wonder what all of those accomplished peeps do with their industry secrets? Well, they reveal them via Skillshare, of course! This week, you can add a new line to your resume in the talent department, because there are some seriously cool classes happening! And, if you don't have time to leave your desk, do it right from your office chair. Classes like Intro to Infographics, Proposal Writing, and Creating a Threadless Design, are only the beginnings of what you could adopt as your latest bit of knowledge. Warning: Skillshare is highly addicting and you may turn into one of those super-multifaceted hobbyists.
When: Monday July 15, through Sunday, July 21, anytime.
Where: Locations vary by class.

Variance Objects and Earth Tu Face Pop-Up
This week Good Stock has found two ways to ensure we sparkle and shine with its latest pop-up. First, look to Variance Objects, which will be supplying gleaming jewels featuring earthly elements that we can pile on for 15% off! Then, pick through beauty-enhancing products by local line Earth Tu Face. The lotions and potions are all completely plant based and whipped up by herbalists who know what your skin needs. We say it's time to tune back into Mother Nature because it looks like she's got the goods!
When: Thursday, July 18, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Where: Good Stock, 4198 Piedmont Avenue (Linda and Ridgeway avenues), Oakland; 510-653-8518.

Kinfolk and Lacanche Honey Harvest Party
Whatever we were planning for this Sunday suddenly seems, well, dull compared to this awesome shindig that's sure to be a buzz. Kinfolk Magazine and Lacanche are teaming up to show folks how to harvest honey by taking a stab at beekeeping. Bonus: You'll be whipping up your very own jar of herb- or spice-infused honeys, while munching on other sweet treats.
When: Sunday, July 21, 1 to 4 p.m.
Where: Marshall Farms, 159 Lombard Road (between Klamath Court and Hess Road), American Canyon; 707-556-8088.

Job & Boss At Mercy Vintage
Trying to limit our purchases from local designers is no easy feat, and we're pretty close to giving up the fight. Helping us indulge in this habit is Mercy Vintage Now with its latest pop-up. (Pssst: It's next door to Good Stock — hello, party hoppers!) This Thursday, you can catch a glimpse of Job & Boss designer Brook Lane and her gorgeous new line of hand-dyed items, all inspired by her adventures afar. Get lost in her lustful textiles while you soak up the good vibes in one of Piedmont Avenues' coolest haunts. You never know, the designer may just share her travel stories over a cocktail!
When: Thursday, July 18, 6 to 9 p.m.
Where: Mercy Vintage Now, 4188 Piedmont Avenue (at Linda Avenue); 510-654-5599.
