Off the Grid, and a New Neighborhood Blog, Launch in Hayes Valley

A new star in the blog firmament...

Well, Hayes Valley, you're getting both your own official Off the Grid event today, as well as a spiffy new neighborhood blog called Hayeswire, courtesy of the brilliant minds who brought you Haighteration. OTG launches at Octavia and Linden, conveniently right next to Biergarten, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. this evening with three vendors: Hapa SF, KoJa Kitchen and The Taco Guys. This is technically a relaunch for OTG, since there was a mini-event at the same location last summer. But now that Biergarten is open, it is obviously better. [Hayeswire]
