Such a Bittersweet Day....

I rarely promote events on my blog (for that matter, these days I rarely blog), but there are two events coming up shortly that those of you who read this, and are in San Francisco, should pay attention to.

This Friday, December 4, my home organization SFWPC is hosting is hosting the annual San Francisco Woman's Holiday Party at the premiere nightclub and lounge venue Lot46. This is a great event every year, full of champagne, friends and colleagues, policy wonks and the Usual-Suspect electeds.

Then next week, on Thursday December 10, a couple of San Francisco-based artists, photographer Geoffrey King and historian (and a trusty progressive woman-at-arms) Sunny Angulo, are debuting their brand new book project, Such a Bittersweet Day (published in SF).

The book chronicles the journey of the marriage equality movement following the fateful passage of California's Prop 8 in 2008, and 100% of the net proceeds from the main edition will go to organizations fighting for civil rights and healthy communities. This is a great present for all the progressives on your holiday list. Geoff and Sunny will be signing the books at the launch party (info here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=173058721393&ref=ts).

Keep calm and carry on, and don't forget to buy locally.

Yours truly will be busy over the month of December moving into a brand-spanking new apartment with giant living room windows facing my favorite sunny corner of Alamo Square, so if you see me with a huge smile on my face, pat me on the back.
