Off Broadway Summer Pop Up in North Beach (SF, CA)

I was so excited to check out the lst Annual Off Broadway Summer Pop Up in San Francisco's North Beach this afternoon.  This show was put on by Ansanelli Productions who also do Treasure Island Flea and Jack of All Trades Market at Jack London Square in Oakland.  I've featured both markets in past blogs.  This was the first time they did a show in the city and it was in my favorite section.  It started at at the corner of Kearny and Pacific and traveled up to Broadway.  This part of the city is the oldest and not so heavily traveled by tourists.  The story goes that during the 1906 earthquake, a raging fire consumed most of the city.  When it got to this section, the wind changed and this neighborhood was saved from destruction.   The streets are tree-lined and the buildings are mostly brick and reminiscent of the gold rush. Today, it opened its streets to vintage sellers, local artists and food trucks and 21st century shoppers.   I brought home a beautiful handcrafted necklace made of amethyst.  I am so happy with it that I'm wearing it now as I write to you.  Enjoy the Pop Up show.  Cheers, Toni
