Scenes From Last Night's Hayes Valley Microhood

Last night saw the return of the Bold Italic's Hayes Valley microhood celebration, an event that featured sales, snacks, drink specials and a distinct influx of people to the neighborhood. 
The focal point of the evening was, as always, the PROXY project's space at Hayes and Octavia, which saw a community organization and non-profit fair that included Friends of the Urban Forest, Hayes Valley Bakeworks, Pacific Institute/Agesong and the SF LGBT Community Center. Also present: cotton candy, a pull-up competition, motorized skateboards (of which David Chiu was a fan) and a long line for Move Loot's make-your-own succulent station. 

We caught some of the action along the strip last night, from cupcakes at Oxenrose to scenes from PUBLIC Bikes, Noir Lounge, Timbuk2 and more.
