The French artist’s stylish works, which boast cartoony and crafty takes of S.F. scenery and fashionable folks, are absolutely adorable and quirky. This is her first solo exhibition — so come toast Chloe and enjoy tasty treats like cotton candy and lemonade. This event is too cute-slash-yummy to miss. Color us happy!

Jean Paul Gaultier History Lecture
Still haven’t checked out the captivating Gautier exhibit? Why not make a day of it and catch a little lecture while you’re at it? The de Young is hosting a free chat about JPG, the exhibit, and the rise of street culture.

Clary Sage Organics Grand Opening in San Jose
We’re kind of obsessed with Clary Sage Organics, so making the trip to San Jose to check out the second CSO store (the first is on Fillmore Street) is a no-brainer. The eco-friendly boutique is setting up shop on Santana Row and to celebrate, it's hosting a welcoming party on Thursday. Pop by for a night of earthy libations, tunes, and bites.
