SF December Events

Recently I’ve had lots of free time on my hands, and when this happens the part of me that’s a bit “type A” refuses to be idle. To fill my time I try to find free/inexpensive events happening in the city and share them out to all my friends. Below is a compiled list of upcoming San Francisco events all happening in December.

Sweater Weather

Winter’s crisp and chilly weather has finally made it’s way to the bay area; I’m excited to finally be able to dig up my cozy sweaters. Turtle necks, cable knit, fun & fuzzy – I love all types!
