Lastly but certainly not leastly, San Francisco will have it’s own Tiny Art Build party on Sunday Aug 22st from noon to 8pm. (Note has been changed was originally the 21st) The great Rick Abruzzo, master sausage chef, event organizer, and more,  has offered to host the SF Tiny Art Party at Chez Poulet, 3359 Cesar Chavez (at Mission), San Francisco.

Chez Poulet is a huge location with plentiful space for all number of tiny art projects. Those who have been to Chez Poulet know that it is also special in that it has no doorbell; thus, there will be a number to call posted on the front door.

Note to the allergy prone and the ailurophobic: there is a cat.
