Galleries and shops had their doors open late for the Lower Haight Art Walk on Saturday night. Though somewhat sparsely attended, Lower Haighters and visitors alike roamed the streets, enjoyed art and libations, and got some holiday shopping out of the way as well.

These folks donned their ugly sweaters and explored the nightlife of the Lower Haight:

Wild Feather had unique stuffed animals, hand crafted from your childhood nightmares. The perfect holiday gift for your new stepdaughter!

Merch was overflowing with unique and thoughtful gifts of all shapes and sizes.

Life, that sanctuary of good smells and small gifts, had its doors open, and the lovely ladies there were sharing their good spirits (beer and champagne, mostly).

Cove had votives for days.

It was a bittersweet night at Gallery 683, as Harry Strauch's shop was commemorating the evening with a store-closing sale . . .

. . . making this DSF big print “I Can’t Afford SF” tee even more strangely relevant.

Next to DSF, the little known Stoop Gallery offered a well-curated art experience in the unassuming setting of an everyday San Francisco stoop  — a fitting exhibition for the street photography of Chris Gould.

After proclaiming victory over brunch, Kate’s Kitchen has begun to explore evening culinary and musical offerings.

Luggage Store Projects presented an installation by T. W. Five called "AUTOMATON X," as well as freestyle rizzapping. The show is up until the end of December.

The second “San Francisco Found” exhibit opened at Glass Key Photo, the all analogue photo specialists. The show featured beautiful vintage slides from 1945 and 1965. Shot on what was the oldest surviving brand of color film, the now-extinct yet still unparalleled color Kodachrome. The "San Francisco Found" show will be on display until January 6th.

Fifty24SF featured the opening of Sam Flores’ highly-anticipated solo exhibition “A Light Into the Darkness.”

The evening wrapped up with an Upper Playground afterparty.
