Farley's Annual "Safe and Sane" Fireworks Show. A wonderful event that begins just after dark; the street explodes in a great show of lights and colors all accompanied by the music of John Phillips Souza. Come and enjoy the show and bring "safe and sane" fireworks of your own if you like. This is a fun time for kids of all ages!
Along the 18th Street corridor of Potrero Hill, where many restaurants and shops are, a new business has just opened, a vintage clothing store, called Kate's Closet. Mary Petrin, long time Potrero Hill resident, bought the consignment clothing store, Collage Clothing, from Delisa Sage, who still owns the gallery next door. She named it after her two and a half year old daughter, Kate. It has children's clothing as well as vintage adult styles, jewelry, and shoes.
Technology entrepreneur and Burning Man veteran Wayne de Geere purchased the 909 Tennessee Street firehouse. A founder of first generation dot-coms Critical Path and DomainNet, deGeere paid just over $1.3 million for the 6,400 square foot building. De Geere wants to rezone the property for mixed use, with a restaurant on the ground floor and two residential units above. The sale, by the Department of Real Estate, took six months to close.
