One year after their "Oh Hayes" event came to the neighborhood, the folks over at the Bold Italic (whose offices are located at Page and Franklin) are once again throwing a shindig to celebrate local commerce in Hayes Valley. 
On Thursday, August 14th, from 6pm-8pm, look out for the TBI crew to team up with Google Shopping Express, Chevrolet, and online furniture marketplace Move Loot to bring you an evening of deals, drinks, and other amusements

A host of local businesses will be participating, with some of the plans as follows:

  • Oxenrose Salon will be launching the display of Bay Area artist Taylor Blackmore’s work. Meet the artist, enjoy complimentary drinks, and enjoy a live DJ.
  • Noir Lounge will have happy hour pricing all night and live piano music.
  • Azil Boutique will have drinks, small bites, and 20% off purchases.
  • Bulo Shoes will be serving free wine and cheese along with a 50% off summer footware.
  • Gather will provide shoppers with a free gift when they spend $35 or more and take 15% off purchases over $150.
  • Public Bikes will offer drinks, snacks, live music, and 10% off.
  • Timbuk2 will have refreshments and discounts on all merchandise.
  • Lavish will be giving away free sunglasses with a purchase of $50 or more.
  • Biergarten will feature discounts on special beers.
If shopping and socializing isn't your thing, PROXY will also be running a Community Organization and Non-Profit Fair during the event, along with the hardworking Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association, Openhouse, Friends of the Urban Forest, Pacific Institute/Agesong, and more organizations still to come.

Mark your calendars for mi-August, and in the meantime, here are some scenes from last year's event to whet your appetite for the upcoming festivities.
