We could also make the upcoming Lost Landscapes San Francisco a bit of an SF event if enough of us attend. Lefty posted a reminder in his "h8trz" thread, but I thought I'd re-post here to spread the word. Git those tix while there's still some left.

It's hard to believe that Lost Landscapes has developed a
six-year-history of its own, but indeed it has. Thanks to our sponsor
Long Now Foundation, we're moving this year to the Castro Theatre, San
Francisco's own movie palace, where I'll be presenting a show
jam-packed with uncommonly exciting discoveries. (See below.)

As I think most of you know, Lost Landscapes of San Francisco is a
feature-length program of archival film clips drawn from home movies,
amateur footage, studio outtakes and industrial films, showing the
City as it was. While the allure of vanished San Francisco is a big
part of the show, it also aims to get us thinking about our city's
future: what can these images of the past tell us about the kind of
city we'd like to live in?

Coming up this year, among many other things:

-- Color and B&W footage of San Francisco's cemeteries just before
their removal

-- Unique drive-through footage of San Francisco's Produce Market in
the 1940s (now Embarcadero Center and Golden Gateway)

-- Cruising the newly-built Embarcadero Freeway

-- Grungy back streets in working-class North Beach

-- New film showing the sandswept Sunset in the late 1930s, before its
dunes were covered with homes

-- Wild automobile rides through downtown in the 1920s

-- Newly-rediscovered Cinemascope footage of Playland, the Sky Tram,
and other parts of San Francisco, all in bright Kodachrome

And I'm delighted to announce that this will be the first-ever show in HD.

PLACE AND TIME: Castro Theatre, Thursday, December 8, 7:30 (doors 6:30).

TICKETS: Buy tickets here. IMPORTANT: These shows have a way of
selling out quickly. The Castro's a big, beautiful room, but I'd
advise ordering tickets right now.

Look forward to seeing you!

Guys-

I contacted Levis about a meet-up. Not quite sure how it will go. Seems they have very strict rules about "social" events even at their store on Union Square. But, I meet with two guys who are launching a new denim brand in SF. Great background story. Everything is made by hand in SF and currently they do true bespoke jeans. Yep, bespoke...not MTM. They are creating quite a buzz in certain denim circles.

I'll keep you posted.

Did anyone take a damn photograph at this thing? In Stitches is getting antsy to update his database.

It was an evening gathering of well-dressed middle-aged men in a dark subterranean room in San Francisco.

 

There were no photos.

Fortunately, Matt did not go bare-chested at La Trappe. If only Roger had taken his lead... lol8[1].gif

+1 but do I need to remind you that you are still not posted any real photos in your own meet-up threads?
