The Scuttlefish at Revolver: A pop-up gallery and store in homage to the ocean
*Coming Soon: Our Guide To Oceanic Living in San Francisco*
A Gallery and store in homage to the Sea
Hello! I’m pleased to announce that The Scuttlefish will be teaming up with our friends at Revolver, a boutique in San Francisco, to do a pop-up shop/gallery in the Lower Haight. We’ll have unique clothing, beach gear, books, art and nautical and oceanic flotsam for you to admire and purchase, with proceeds being sent to Save the Waves.
The point? To remind everyone in San Francisco that there’s an ocean to enjoy right on the other side of town. If you’re in San Francisco, please stop by. If not, stay tuned. We’ll be putting a lot of this content and these crafts online.
We will be throwing a few get togethers.
- 10/21, 7pm: Reading and book signing by Jaimal Yogis, author of Saltwater Buddha
- 10/28, 7pm: HMS Friday: History teacher and The Scuttlefish columnist Mark Lukach will tell us some tall tales.
- Screening of surf documentary Rio Breaks, with Director Justin Mitchell. Date to be determined!
- Tall tales of antique hunting from Ken Brown of Frank’s Fisherman. Date to be determined!
