11/23/12: BLOCK FRIDAY – A Community Potluck by Swap/Meet SF @ 1100 Market St.

Our nomadic neighbors, Swap/Meet SF, have organized a beautiful community gathering on the 1100 block of Market St.!!  Trying to bring everyone together in true spirit of giving thanks and sharing togetherness, instead of using the day to consume, be material, to obtain, and be superficially possessive.  Together We Rise.
Come out to make Block Friday the new Black Friday and use this day to create community!

swap/meet SF is going all out the day after Thanksgiving by transforming the 1100 block of Market Street into a giant potluck and community feast with a community table 100+ feet long.

By bringing the meal and tables out onto the street, we aim to create a community event of the truest form. Anyone and everyone from the city is welcome to join us for this special meal.

Music will also be provided by Street Stage, an UP:SF Makeathon select project.
