It was a pillow massacre at Justin Herman Plaza for the 2013 Pillow Fight. SF Station photographer Alex Akamine was there to watch the feathers fly.
San Francisco’s annual Valentine’s Day pillow fight in Justin Herman Plaza is always a popular event, as hundreds, both young and old, gather for a mass pillow fight. But who cleans up after the event?
There are some people who think grabbing a box of candy and flowers from the local supermarket is fine for a last minute Valentine’s Day present. For those who wish to send a sweeter message, here are a few ideas to help make a Valentine sweetheart feel truly special.
Today is Valentine’s Day. For many it’s a day for giving and celebrating love, but for some it’s just an ugly reminder that love is not blind. If fact, love, marriage and discrimination go hand in hand here in California and in most states across the country. To fight this, there will be two rallies today in support of same sex marriage.
What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Weekend with your main squeeze than listening to live local music, enjoying beloved food truck eats from Off the Grid, perusing local boutique fashion, and sipping on bottomless mimosas? EYEHEARTSF is producing another huge Fort Mason party complete with music, fashion, fun and games (Check out video footage from their “Streets of San Francisco” NYE party here).
Where are the top pick up spots in San Francisco? Grocery stores- Check. Cocktail parties- Check. Muni (Strange, yes, but try it!)- Check. Time to add the San Francisco Public Library to the list as it hosts its first-ever “literary speed-dating” events this week in honor of Valentine’s Day, with an event for straight singles tonight.
Many different things draw two people together, including a similar background, a passion for food, pure unadulterated lust, traveling, the same taste in movies, and a love of books. The SF Library has gotten wise to this and, in honor of Valentine’s Day, they’ve decided to enter the matchmaking business. Singles who want to mingle – let me introduce you to Literary Speed Dating.
