St. Crispin's Day Shoe Party 2012
Twelve years and going strong, St Crispin Day is coming near and it's time for you to go out and procure 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.
Last year we went back to Nihon Whiskey Bar on Folsom at 14th St, and now I remember why we went there in the first place, its amazing. 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.
Come hungry and thirsty and of course adorned with amazing shoes!
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
