Please join us on Sunday, February 21 at 6 o'clock* as we celebrate the Bay Area's own TRY! magazine. The evening will be a jovial event celebrating the first two years of the magazine's existence, commemorating the tireless efforts of editors David Brazil and Sara Larsen, as well as the release of the thirtieth issue. To mark the occasion, 30 readers will each present a piece of their choice from one of the magazine's previous issues. The gallery space will be filled with an assortment of things to look at, listen to, purchase, and poke. Expect a DJ booth, and libations to imbibe.
