The middle of October already and I am just putting together the finishing touches on this year's St. Crispin's Day shoe party. It's time for you to go out and purchase your shoes for the festivities and prepare for a fun night. We are looking forward to celebrating with all of you, fancy shoes, good food, lots of drinks and all.
We are moving the party back to the Nihon Whiskey Bar on Folsom at 14th St. Their collection of over 400 malt whiskeys is the largest on the West Coast and they serve contemporary Japanese cuisine with a sophisticated twist on the traditional Japanese Izakaya (Japanese version of tapas). The cuisine also offers a wide array of fresh sashimi and sushi rolls.
Hope you can come and celebrate with all of us.

What is this all about?
Shoe making has a long history and one that is rich in tradition. Within the trade itself – among shoe and bootmakers – the legends, the traditions, and the history really begin with St. Crispin. St. Crispin is the patron saint of shoemakers. Since medieval times, October 25th has been celebrated as St. Crispin's Day and the Shoemaker's Holiday. In the past, boot and shoemakers traditionally closed their shops on this day, in celebration and commemoration. Read more
