free stuff from the SF Chronicle

The first rule of Fight Club applies to lots of things: if too many people know about a cool thing it’ll get spoiled. So let’s just keep this between us, okay?

If you are a subscriber to the San Francisco Chronicle, you can also sign up for Chronicle membership. They have spiffy events that are open to members, either by just signing up or entering a drawing. These are some of the offers Tom and I have taken advantage of recently:

  • advanced screening of Big Hero 6 (go see it!)
  • tour of the Chronicle newsroom (biggest thrill: meeting columnists Matier & Ross. least impressive: the editor of the newly combined Food & Home sections)
  • preview party for the SF car show (food, drink & live music)
  • a fairly rare chance to see the “old” Mint on Sixth Street and take a tour
  • free dress rehearsal tickets to Peter & the Starcatcher
  • another movie screening, for Angelie Jolie’s Unbroken
  • a free year’s membership to the Museum of the African Diaspora

So if you’re a subscriber, just do this! It makes your subscription so much more valuable because, let’s face it, the paper itself often leave a lot to be desired.

Sundays at the Mint

We can’t recommend a visit to the Old Mint highly enough. It’s only open for a few hours on Sundays.
