MINT PLAZA—Minty Fresh, we are just so damn proud of you! You've come a long way, kid. Readers, make haste to the Mint tomorrow at 10 a.m. Gavster, Chris Daly, and the Martin Building Company people will grand stand. More importantly, plan to stuff your faces with Blue Bottle Coffee and 'whichcraft pastries beforehand. Champagne and Chez Papa Resto hors d'oeuvres to follow. Jazz. For the night shift, posse up at 54 Mint Lounge for a 5-8 p.m. cocktail reception. Downtempo and um, live painting. Official invite addressed to "the people." We'll see about that.
SAN FRANCISCO AT LARGE—Twenty Four hours until we "Name That Nabe" (Mission/Potrero/SoMa). Cast your vote now! Recent suggestions include: Media Gulch, LoPo, and MiSoPot.
