November Events at the Bernal Heights Branch

At the beginning of every month our wonderful local branch of the SF Public Library posts a calendar of all the events happening at the library. While I recommend you all sign up for their email updates, I’ll also be posting those events here and eventually adding them to the Bernal Hype calendar (coming soon).

Trick or Treating on Cortland

It’s Halloween today, which means that kids and parents will storm the sidewalks of Cortland Ave to trick or treat at the many retail shops and candy-friendly homes flanking the main drag.

Since we don’t get a ton of trick-or-treaters at our house, we usually head to the corner of Cortland and Moultrie by the library to pass out candy. This year we’ll be there starting between 5:30 and 6:00pm with full-size candy bars, a spooky soundtrack of the best Halloween songs, and some pretty killer Bernal Hype stickers:

Aside from our little Bernal Hype trick or treat pop-up, most shops along Cortland give out candy as well (or in the case of Good Life, candy and apples). Pinhole has already posted that their organic candy hand-out begins at 5:30pm.

In addition to businesses, Next Door has a treat map where houses can opt in to appear on the map if they will be giving out candy. Just taking a look at the map as of this morning, there are a good number of houses within a block or two of Cortland that will be handing out the goods as well:

Please stop by and say hey this evening, and remember to stay safe out there as Cortland does not close down to traffic during the Halloween festivities.
