Welcome Stranger hosts our first Manual Meet Up in San Francisco

On April 21st we hosted a happening at our favorite menswear shop in San Francisco, Welcome Stranger. While they have a stunning new store in Elmwood, we opted for the Hayes Valley location to get a feel of what is happening down town. And while our event was poppin’ we have to say, Berkley is blowing up!

We brought in our favorite California Aloe Liquer, Chareau that was gone faster than we could pour it, as well as Lagunitas IPA and Dandelion chocolates.

We got to know our local readers as they perused the goods from the likes of Apolis, Topo Designs, Our Legacy, Barbour and seemingly a party favorite, Terrapin Stationers, who’s ‘That was all Bullshit‘ calling card got a good chuckle and a lot of sales.

Izola offered up their new luggage tags as a gift for guests too.

Keep up with our hashtag #TheManualMeetup to hear about the next meet up destination and check out this video recap of our event.
