Here’s a recap of Haighteration in 3D, the pop-up shop event we hosted Wednesday night at 248 Fillmore.
In case you’ve somehow escaped our near-constant mentioning of this, the event was part of the Noise Pop-Up Shop that’s been going strong throughout February in anticipation of next week’s Noise Pop Festival. Haighteration was invited to curate Wednesday night’s event.
First, we packed the room with stories, photos, and other Lower Haight miscellanae:
And we chalked.
And then people came!
Some folks marked their favorite spots on a map.
Some (like Tucker here) enjoyed viewing photos from the Lower Haight’s days of yore.
Lots of people left comments…
And a few were just happy to be done prepping for the event.
The place was pretty much packed from 6-10pm, and this would definitely not have been possible without the contributions of…
- Magnolia Brewery (1398 Haight), who provided a keg of their stellar Kalifornia Kolsch golden ale for the event. Magnolia was kind enough to take time from their busy Beer Week schedule to hook us up! Beer Week is about to end, but swing by Magnolia today or tomorrow from 10am to 2:30pm for their Festival Sausage and Beer Brunch if you’re hankering for more of their fantastic brews.
- Memphis Minnie’s (576 Haight), who cooked up 100 servings of their amazing pulled pork sliders and cheese grit sticks, which we could barely keep on the table. How lucky are we to have the city’s best BBQ right here in the ‘hood?
- Rooky Ricardo’s Records (448 Haight), who provided the funktastic music for the event. If you’re ever planning a party or event like this, we highly suggest stopping by Rooky’s to pick up one of owner Dick Vivian’s handmade mix CDs, featuring rare tracks pulled from his extensive record collection, many of which have never been digitized before. Only $10 each!
- Noise Pop, who not only invited us to curate the event, but helped with set-up and promotion as well. How they managed to pull off this pop-up shop while simultaneously prepping for next week’s festival is beyond us.
- And a special thanks to a handful of Haighteration friends who helped print, cut, hang, drive, and prep. You know who you are.
So, that’s a wrap! Thanks to everyone who came out — we hope you had fun. Until next year, maybe?
