Tonight: Shop, Sing, & Sip At The Annual Hayes Valley Block Party

There’s definitely no shortage of holiday parties on the horizon (time to break out the sequins and sweaters, peeps!). And while we’re always on board for a champagne-filled fête, we have a soft spot for the soiree that doesn’t get much love come the colder months: the block party. Yep, that’s what's going down tonight — a block party in one of our favorite S.F. ‘hoods, Hayes Valley.
Naturally, we’ve rounded up the deals and the drinks you need to know about. So, get your butt over to Hayes for these super-sweet happenings. Whether you swing by Azalea for the karaoke competition or steal smooches under the mistletoe at Acrimony — here is your chance to sip, shop, and mingle the night away. We’ll see you there!
