To do: V-Day shopping, E-waste dropoff, Shakespeare, magnolias, hike & more

  • Magnolias – like the one above – are in full bloom right now at the Botanical Gardens in Golden Gate Park. “Nearly 100 magnolias, many rare and historic, erupt in a fragrant riot of pink and white from mid-January through March.” Check out more pics
  • Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and some shops on Clement Street are gearing up with a Valentine’s Boutique Stroll even this Saturday from 11am until 5pm.

  1. Got some old cables and dead small appliances over to Argonne. Glad to have read this. It’s a shame they didn’t do a bit more neighborhood outreach prior to the event.
