Let the Holidays begin!

San Francisco is such a beautiful city, and this Tree Lighting ceremony is the perfect way to start off the holidays: friends, carols, lights, music, pagentry, hot chocolate. (Best to dress in layers – it can be chilly!  BAH! My Chicago friends say!)

It is ALWAYS the Friday after Thanksgiving – a yearly tradition for many. Forget about Parking! This fun celebration is usually very crowded and parking is difficult so take BART/Muni and come early to find a good spot  before the celebration begins.  Make sure to walk along Union Square + Maiden Lane and look into the lovely decorated windows.   MAP TO UNION SQUARE

Sports Basement – Wow!

Dear Sports Basement,

In the past several months, you have supplied me with all the tools I need to create stellar outdoors events: kickballs, volleyballs, camp chairs, shoes of all kinds, sun block, snacks, yoga clothes. That would be wonderful… but you have also offered great FREE Classes with amazing instructors.

That is really wonderful: Thanks for the Free Yoga on Sundays (taught by the expert Yoga Shala team from San Jose) and customized Camping Clinics and Bike Clinics. Our group really loved the clinics & the 10% discount after the clinic helped us shop with a smile. When Phil made us breakfast burritos in the camping clinic I was knocked out – he made it look easy! And Sara E you made event planning easy, fun and informative! Besides all this goodness, this building is green, lovingly updated and accessorized with green materials.

sbus_corner_smallWith FIVE Bay Area stores, I wish you the very best in business and happiness for your awesome & knowledgable staff.  And how cool…. the brand new UNION SQUARE Sports Basement is OPEN!

Every experience at SB  has been good, even when I am in a rush and needing help “right now”. THANKS for all the great times – we’ll be back !
