On her blog, The Lesen Lounge, Berliner by-way-of Canada Leah Buckareff defines a zine as "an independently produced publication. Most often they are self or hand-made books that vary in content, but usually house the creators' personal thoughts, ideas, or artwork both in text and images."
An avid artist and musician, Buckareff has set out to draw a greater awareness of zine publication from the Berlin community. She will ride out through parks every weekend on her "Lesen Lounge," a bike with a brightly painted zine library attached.
The Bay Brew Festival has finally made it to San Francisco. After touring Los Angeles and Orange County this Festival will stop at Fort Mason on November 13th and 14th. This is no wine and cheese pairing but a two-day frenzy that will feature dozens of international and domestic beers.
The event runs from 1pm – 4pm with unlimited beer. Local food trucks will provide the sponge your stomach needs to survive this weekend of flavor. Tickets will cost $50. Use the code “tablehopper” for 20% off the ticket. Food will be sold separately so bring some extra cash.
