A Roundup Of Local Events You Really Should Check Out And A Possible Farmer's Market for the Inner Sunset...
After all this heavy budget talk, it's time to lighten the mood around here, and what better way than to spotlight the many awesome neighborhood events coming up?
There's quite a lot going on this week (and weekend) around the neighborhood, so mark your calendars for 'em and check 'em out. They include:
-The House Formerly Known As The "Yes We Can" House at Irving and 6th is having a flea market May 16th from 12pm-5pm. I know I'll be there trying to find a lamp and a desk for my new apartment. Stop by and say hi to your awesome neighbors here.
-Grattan School will be holding its 4th annual "Fun Fest," also on May 16th, from 11am-5pm. Located at 165 Grattan Street, the FunFest is a great way to show your support for the school. There will be a silent auction, music, games, activities and more. Find out more at the Grattan School website.
-The super awesome Western Neighborhoods Project not only has a new blog, they also have a new office/space at 300 Taraval Street as well. They will be hosting an open house 11am-3pm and all are welcome.
-Supporters of an Inner Sunset Farmer's Market have been working hard behind the scenes to get one established at the 8th Avenue parking lot on Sunday mornings. A hearing is being held downtown by the (bear with us with the name) Interdepartmental Staff Committee on Traffic and Transportation for Temporary Street Closures (mercifully referred to from now on as ISCOTT) on May 14th at 9am to discuss the temporary closing of the lot for the market. The meeting is at One South Van Ness Avenue, Room #7080.
If you'd like to show your support but can't make it to a 9am meeting, but still would like to show your support, you can sign an online petition as well. Farmer's markets aren't just about buying food - they really help boost a sense of community in a neighborhood, and I think such a market would be a fun addition to the area on Sundays.
