Ah, Valentines Day. A day of love, romance,
and...pillow fights??? In San Francisco, dinner and dancing are not the
only things you can enjoy on Valentines day.
Here are some upcoming events for February 14th that you can enjoy either by yourself, or with a sweetie!
--Pillow fight @ Justin Herman Plaza (Embarcadero Center) @ 6pm
right, a giant pillow fight! Show up early, because when the clock
tower strikes 6:00, the battle begins. Just bring your own pillow
(natural materials only, since some things do drift into the bay).
