Cat’s Corner is on the move!
Cat’s Corner will take place at multiple SF venues this summer, until we confirm a new permanent location. This is due to an unexpected abrupt closure of Balancoire as of mid-July.
Here’s where we’ll be each week:
July 19 & 26: Slovenian Hall. 2101 Mariposa Street, SF
August 2, 9, 16 & 23: Swedish American Hall. 2174 Market Street, SF
August 30: Ukrainian Hall (TBC)
We are leaning toward the Swedish American Hall as our new long-term home, so it’s important to spread the word and come out in force this August. Let’s make a great impression during our trial run!
