There is a secret gem of a bookstore in the Tenderloin, nestled in between a coffee shop and some unassuming apartments on Post Street.
Get your fill of zombies Thursday night at Cinema Speakeasy’s presentation of Evil Dead Drink-A-Long. Just $5 gets you access to a double feature screening of The Evil Dead and Evil Dead: II. But this is no ordinary screening, its a drink-a-long. This means beer folks!
A painted wall in the Tenderloin showcases GIANT and Dan Plasma murals. I like the big bold lettering of GIANT and the faces and eyes that look out at the viewer from an almost tribal-like motif from Dan Plasma. Another way to enjoy art in our city from the Tenderloin!
Pen Pop: Street Art is more than just murals and graffiti. It’s the color of store displays and traffic cones; it’s a restaurant’s no-smoking notice; and it’s the handmade sign of mom & pop stores. Noticing these different compositions, colors, and mediums is one of the joys of walking around the city. See it all after the jump.
Harrington’s Pub and neighboring businesses in the Tenderloin have been dressed up with street art! It looks to be EON 75 who decorated these pillars and walls with some Irish themed street art!
Pen Pop: Remember Barteño? It’s a stylized Bart Simpson that you can see here. There are more POP culture references on the streets: from television are Dexter and DLOCS’ grape ape; a tattooed Andy Capp from the funnies; and the movies Weekend at Bernie’s and French Kiss each have a little poster. The best things in life are free! Check it out after the jump.
I came across this fabulous mural in the Tenderloin this last week. It looks like the work of Ben Eine, who has shown his work at galleries in San Francisco, as well as around the world. Other work by Eine in San Francisco includes murals in the Mission District and Hayes Velley.
A pair of eyes look out from two separate walls in the Tenderloin. Like giants staring out of imaginary peepholes into the city, these posters catch the viewer unaware as they gawk at passersby.
