Thanks so much for mentioning this! Since this is our first year here in San Francisco area I try to hit all the best events possible! So fun around here! I wondered... I have noticed a lot of cars with new bumper stickers this week that say EARTH with the ART part in red. Does that have to do with this weekend too?
