JeremyFish-Walrus-Cruiser-Skateboard-UpperPlayground-1

As Upper Playground celebrates its 15th anniversary, our radical neighbors DLX Skate Shop celebrates 20 years here in San Francisco. These two stores deserve a pat on the back for continuing to serve radness to its loyal customers, fans, and neighbors all these years. To help celebrate our anniversaries, both brands combined forces to create the Upper Playground x DLX “Walrus Cruiser” skateboard. Designed with love by a long time friend of both shops, artist Jeremy Fish. What could be more fun than shredding a little walrus around town while celebrating two legendary local retail establishments?

Saying goodbye to an original landmark in the Lower Height: the Silly Pink Bunny Statue

Jeremy Fish and supporters gathered Friday the 13th for the Silly Pink Bunny Statue Funeral held at the corner of Haight and Laguna in Lower Haight, San Francico.  The bitter sweet ceremony with speeches and songs were held to pay tribute to the original bunny statue and to also celebrate the coming of a new bronze statue that will take its place very soon.

Check out photos from the event:
