SF Blotter is realized out of a desire to uncover and report on unique locales and activities in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. From food to music, art and politics, SF Blotter is a curated list of fun things to do.

Started by Florica Vlad, who culls content and writes posts, and Ronaldo Barbachano, who administers the site, SF Blotter continues to grow and develop as talented artists and individuals are invited to participate as contributing writers.

The online magazine includes an upcoming events calendar and stories that highlight the spirit of ingenuity in San Francisco’s artists and makers, profiling both new businesses and beloved San Francisco institutions.
