MISSION—Hopefully you don't yet have plans tonight, because this is a good one: The denim connoisseurs at Self Edge on Valencia are teaming up with the photography mavens down the street at Photbooth to celebrate their new, one-of-a-kind camera. It's a giant tintype camera built by hand by Photobooth co-founder Michael Shindler, and it's going to be rad. Five guests will win free giant tintype portraits! And Racer 5 IPA will be served. It's happening at 1193 Valencia from 7 to 9pm. There's still time to RSVP here. [Racked Inbox]

Music will be by Wild Hum and Philip ManleyLife Coach. [Racked Inbox]
