April explores the city.

Free Friday. September 17, 2010

On my day off from work, I wake up at 6:30 a.m. Am I a crazy person? Maybe. But with good cause!
Levi Jeans had a free jean giveaway this morning at Union Square to promote their new line. Fo’ free? I’m there!
I got there just before 8 — the event started at 10 — and was one of the first 50 or so people there. I had expected a bigger crowd, but definitely was not complaining about the turnout at that hour. I sat on a cold sidewalk for a couple hours watching Glee and then was let in to the madness. It wasn’t just a grab-any-pair-you-can type thing. I was measured was allowed to try on as many pairs as I wanted and walked out with $70 jeans 100% for free!
But the morning was only just beginning. All of Union Square was full of free stuff! Free sandwiches, free snacks, free cupcakes, free ice cream. There was a free silkscreening booth where I designed a shirt for myself. There was an airbrush booth where I got a tattoo. It’s a neon tiger. I’m considering making it permanent.
Best of all, there was a free concert by She&Him! Zooey Deschanel is probably the cutest person in the whole entire world. Such delightful and happy music by her and M. Ward. And I was in the front row!
San Francisco, you are too good to me.
