HAYES VALLEY—PROXY (the outdoor space at 432 Octavia Street) is going to be full of a lot of C-R-A-P on Saturday, and you're really going to want to dig in. Of course, we speak of Crap® Eyewear, the fun, fresh, fashion-forward and reasonably priced sunglass brand. Tomorrow, from noon to 5pm, the LA-based line serves as the guest of honor at Azalea's Summer Kick Off. Plus, there will be lots of special guests, including Casey's Pizza and J-Shack food trucks, beer by Fort Point, It's-It ice cream, and tunes from the Paranoyds. And, yes, you'll save 15% on all Crap goodies (plus there's a free GWP). RSVP here. P.S. Azalea chose to hold the event at the awesome outdoor space to help support it's free walk-in movie theater Kickstarter.
OAKLAND—Everybody loves Urban Air Market, and on Sunday, Oakland-ers won't have to hop on BART or drive over any bridges to enjoy the latest outdoor mini-market of locally made, sustainable goods.
