Tenth Annu­al Ghi­rardel­li Square Choco­late Fes­ti­val
Sat­ur­day & Sun­day; Sep­tem­ber 10 and 11

The 10th Annu­al Ghi­rardel­li Square Choco­late Fes­ti­val, ben­e­fit­ing Project Open Hand, will take place Sat­ur­day and Sun­day, Sep­tem­ber 10 and 11, 2005, from 12:00 noon — 5:00 pm.

For over 20 years, Project Open Hand had pro­vid­ed meals and bags of gro­ceries to men, women and chil­dren liv­ing with symp­to­matic HIV and AIDS. Project Open Hand expand­ed their ser­vices to pro­vide dai­ly con­gre­gate lunch­es to seniors and pro­vide meals to peo­ple who are home­bound and crit­i­cal­ly ill. Vis­it www.openhand.org for more infor­ma­tion.

This is a free & pub­lic event — except for choco­late tast­ing. Indi­vid­ual tick­ets are $8, 2 tick­ets are $14 and 3 tick­ets are $20. Each tick­et will give you 5 choco­late sam­ples from any of the par­tic­i­pat­ing ven­dors.

Flickr at SF Apple Store

Looks like the great Flickr staff will be bless­ing the SF Apple Store on the 2nd of August, 6–7:30pm. I’ll pro­l­ly check it out with James. Should be inter­est­ing and fun. Hope to get some Flickr schwag—maybe they have some secret stash =)

More info here.

Mean­while, I tried RSVPing for the event using Upcoming.org. I signed up with them but haven’t got­ten any con­fir­ma­tion email that usu­al­ly takes just sec­onds to receive. After some test­ing, it looks like it might be my mail serv­er. Oh well, I hope it does­n’t fill up.

They seem to be the talk of the town late­ly. If I can recall, they just moved a cou­ple of weeks ago. Good times hope­ful­ly. Maybe they’ll even announce a “New-In-Town Fickr Par­ty” of some sort… just maybe.

Any­ways, the Apple Store is across the street (lit­er­al­ly). Just gonna cruise on by after work. I can’t wait to meet these cool peeps.
