29 Hot Snaps From R29 San Francisco's One-Year Anniversary Bash

It's plain to see that S.F. is getting cooler by the second. And no one knows this better than the staff (um, me and new recruit Angela Tafoya) at Refinery29 San Francisco. Covering the people and places that are elevating this city to new heights, we've been inspired, quite literally, on the daily. And, now that we've hit our one-year (and some change) milestone, we thought it only right to celebrate the movers and shakers who are putting this place on the map with an incredible 1st Anniversary bash that went down Saturday night.
While we wish we could have invited every last one of our amazing readers (that means you!), we had to respect fire-safety codes, and keep the list tailored to our amazing subjects and contributors that have made our coverage come to life over the past 14 months. The result was a house packed with hot baristas, designers, bloggers, Google girls, and one raw, vegan, (not gross) chef, all stuffed into the rad Hipstamatic offices (also a R29 S.F. subject!). Drinks were provided by Kanon and Lorenza Rose, eats by the Rice Paper Scissors cuties, and beats by the ever-epic DJ Sonny Phono (who also spinned at our launch party...awww). We might be bias here, but we think our guests would agree...there ain't no party like a Refinery29 S.F. party. Peep the pics for proof.
