18 Reasons for Holiday Cheer

I came in from the rain today and warmed myself up with some mulled wine, courtesy of 18 Reasons, a tiny community space in San Francisco's Mission District.

18 Reasons was started by the founder of Bi-Rite Market, which is just a few steps down 18th Street. (18 Reasons is on Guerrero at 18th Street). The idea is that it would be a space for the community to get together and enjoy art and food.

I came to enjoy the mulled wine and holiday cookies from Bi-Rite. This was my first time visiting the space, and it was a very intimate group. Partly because of holiday shopping and the rain, there wasn't a very large crowd. Still, it was nice just to drop in and enjoy some holiday cheer.

The space showcases local art, but it's not really a gallery. It's more a space for special food events, and supposedly the wine dinners are a big thing. If you want to learn more about future events, you can check out their Web site here.

I just checked out the website, and it seems like there are many "reasons" to join. Especially that free scoop of Bi-Rite ice cream!
