I sent out our winter event bulletin! For those who don’t subscribe to my newsletter, here it is, copied and pasted.
Greetings and happy 2012, friends.
I’ve spent the better part of this year (sounds more dramatic) doing three things: (1) combating post-holiday bloat, (2) planning store events, and (3) sourcing new merchandise. I’ll spare you the details of my war on excess water weight, but the good news is I’m ready to share some cool events with you!
Our events chalkboard at the shop. Excuse the bossy tone.

Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free (Not Gross) Breakfast Class with Sidesaddle Kitchen
I don’t know about you, but every person I know has recently committed to juicing, or smoothie-ing, or maple syrup-ing or whatever to kickstart their healthy new lifestyles (note: I’m guilty of drinking lots of green juice these days, too. Fie on you, fleeting youth!). We should all take this class from Laura Miller of Sidesaddle Kitchen to learn how to make delicious recipes for healthy, nutritious breakfasts. After all, Laura is SF’s Newest Raw Foodie Darling–and, yes, you must call her that because, no, she won’t answer to anything else anymore. Read more and sign up for the class here.

Valentine’s Day Pop-Up with Natalie Bowen Floral Designs
Valentine’s Day, ugh, am I right? Just kidding. I’m all for celebrating love–I’m a hippie at heart, so sue me. Thankfully, Natalie Bowen Designs will be here to help lovers of love express their, uh, love with a pop-up shop at Pot + Pantry. For the two weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day, Natalie and team will take over my windows so you can check out their floral wizardry. Then on the actual holiday from 12-7p on February 14th, visit the pop-up to choose from a range of readymade floral arrangements, or pre-order your own special arrangement and pick it up at the store (thus skipping the delivery fee). Get some! And then get some.

Seinfood: An Art Show About Nothing by Rinee Shah
7-9PM, Opening Reception
This one almost needs no introduction. Local art director, designer and illustrator Rinee Shah will unveil new work artfully depicting the various foods that have graced Seinfeld. All I can say is, if there is a piece on “these pretzels are making me thirsty!” you might have to fight me for it. Join us for the opening reception where we’ll have snacks and drinks, and if you’re lucky I’ll wear my puffy shirt. It should be a ton of silly old-fashioned fun. Rinee’s work will be up from February 16 through March 10.
Winter Skill Exchange Workshops presented by Mi Piace Kate Design x Pot + Pantry
And lest you think we forgot, our next round of free workshops for the Skill Exchange is *this* close to being confirmed. You guys, I am so excited about our lineup, you can consider me the fourth Pointer sister (I just dated myself, didn’t I). In addition to follow-up workshops by Sightglass Coffee, Town Cutler, Urban Veggie Starts, and Revival Bar + Kitchen, we’re also adding INNA jam,Almanac Beer, Namu, and Red Circle Tea to our slate of instructors, plus more TBA. We’ve taken all your feedback to heart (Note: thank you to those of you who completed our survey!) and we’ll be making some changes to offer an even better Skill Exchange experience. More details on all of this as soon as the schedule is penned in our calendars..
That about wraps it up for now. As always, thanks for your support!
