Inner Sunset Fourth Fridays

I was sent this notice to share with everyone: “The Inner Sunset Merchants Association has decided to create a monthly after-hours event in the neighborhood, and we’re hosting our first one this month, on Friday June 22nd 2012.”

Since this neighborhood is just down the hill from us, it’s a nice thing to explore. I’ve always felt that our side of the city has too little going on after hours. This would be a welcome addition.

Explore the Inner Sunset after hours!

Enjoy specials, art exhibits, refreshments, and more from local businesses every fourth Friday of the month, starting at 6pm and ending between 9-10pm.

On June 22nd, some of the fun things to discover include the opening of a 2-week art show at Urban Bazaar (1371 9th Ave), with original artwork by local illustrator Nidhi Chanani (the picture above is one of hers), plus free refreshments; and a showcase of handcrafted jewelry from La Paz, Bolivia at La Paz Imports (1342 9th Ave).

Head down to the 9th & Irving intersection on the N-Judah and pick up a map of the businesses that are participating at any of the following locations:

  • Urban Bazaar- 1371 9thAve.;
  • Pearl Gallery- 839 Irving St; Blackthorn- 834 Irving St.;
  • Park Smile- 1244 9th Ave.

All venues (except 21+ only establishments), are family friendly.

Book Signing at Urban Bazaar: Nidhi Chanani, 29 June 2012

I received this heads up from Urban Bazaar, a charming little store on 9th Avenue in the Inner Sunset, just below Forest Knolls:

I wanted to let you know about another event we’re hosting at Urban Bazaar later this month. Local artist and Inner Sunset resident Nidhi Chanani will be putting on a 2 week art exhibit of some of her higher end art pieces at Urban Bazaar from June 23rd- July 8th, and we’re hosting a book signing with her and her new art print book on June 29th from 7:30-pm. Here’s the blurb:

San Francisco artist/illustrator Nidhi Chanani is taking the world by storm!

She recently won a “Champion of Change” award at the White House, and is publishing her second book of art prints in June. Urban Bazaar is one of only 2 locations where she’s holding a book signing event!

Come out to meet Nidhi, have her autograph your book or artwork, and check out some of her artwork that we don’t normally carry – wood burnings, framed prints, and more (which will be on display at Urban Bazaar from June 23rd- July 8th in a special exhibit).

There will be free refreshments, and we’ve heard tell of some kind of awesome giveaway for the first folks to purchase her book…!

Thanks,  Brandi

I looked online, and found  Nidhi Chanani’s light-hearted and delightfulwork. The two pictures here are reproduced from her website. (The link to that is HERE.)
