FILLMORE—Forget Tweeting and Facebooking and road raging. Paper rose crafting is the kind of thing that will help you hit reset and feel like a calm, refined human being again. Martha Stewart Living is getting together with the Fillmore's Jurlique boutique 2136 Fillmore Street to teach you how. The class is on Thursday May 2 from 6 to 8pm, and registration is $35, but you can spend it towards something delicious-smelling (from their new rose collection, perhaps?) at Jurlique. Call 415-346-7881. [Racked Inbox]
