I'm out of the country for a bit in a French speaking place. So now I know how to spell the month we are in, at least. I'll try to update this ol' blarg, but not sure it'll be as detailed as when I'm in SF. Happy summer; enjoy the fog for me. And look to my favorites, SeaweedSway and FunCheapSF for quality events.
