It's Gonna Snow at the Treasure Island Flea!

Sun, fog, mist, and occasional rain — the weather in San Francisco is pretty routine, and snow is hardly ever in the forecast.

But if you're a San Franciscan who just can't enjoy winter without a dusting of the white stuff, make some sandwiches with the your Thanksgiving leftovers and head to Treasure Island on the weekend following Turkey Day. The final Treasure Island Flea of 2014 will take place on November 29-30, and is wrapping up its year with freshly made snow.

The 10 tons of snow will be made and sprinkled on the island, and it's probably a good idea to get there early (if it's sunny, the snow's not gonna stay fluffy for long); the Flea is also providing DIY snowman kits for those you who feel like releasing your inner sculptor, complete with carrots for noses.

They're following the theme by also offering a 2-for-1 deal on cocktail snowcones during Happy Hour (10 a.m.-noon), you know, for those of you who want a morning buzz before playing in the snow.

If snowball fights, snowmen, and alcoholic snowcones aren't your thing, the Flea will also be featuring its regular rotation of shopping and food offerings — so you'll be able to do some Christmas shopping without the Black Friday mobs that spill over into the weekend.

Treasure Island Flea (1 Ave of the Palms), November 29-30, admission is $3.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
