SFist has proudly subscribed to Berkeley based ReadyMade since their first issue. If you haven't ever read it, definitely check it out, as it's chock full of great craft ideas and cool articles.
We're also fans of The Believer, magazine about books (what a concept!). We were happy to see that two of our favorite local publications are coming together in support of yet another local mag, Kitchen Sink, which is described as "the magazine for people who think too much, a non-profit, quarterly print magazine that explores thought, art, culture, identity and politics." It's brought to us by the Neighbor Lady Community Arts Project, an Oakland based non-profit dedicated to the support of the arts.
So, all this brainy, arty goodness is coming together this Friday at San Francisco's Adobe Bookstore (3166 16th Street) when ReadyMade and The Believer will compete in Kitchen Sink's Independent Magazine face-off ping pong tournament and celebration of the release of Kitchen Sink 7: the hook-up issue. Oh yeah, there will be readings from all three of these publications, as well, but we're going for the lit mag ping pong matchup. Admission is free, and the event runs from 8-10 tomorrow night.
