What's a Pirate's Favorite Holiday?

TheWeekIntro has overcome its NoisePop Crush from last week and is developing a new crush on SXSW. Until that love is realized, San Francisco is #1 in my heart. Below are events offered by this great city this week. Keep posted for updates. The weather is getting better, so rid your closet of your broken umbrella and get organized simultaneously. Clean up, as these companies should. And carefully wash your sweaters before putting them away for our summer in September. Speaking of putting things away...yea for having more prisoners than China and Russia. Monday, March 3rd:
  • M'lady Jessy hearts Langhorne Slim $12 The Independent 7.30pm doors. I can't vouch for the sound, as the computer I'm utilizing is from 1998 and has no speakers, but check out the enthusiasm for this and other events on Jessy's blog
