I’m delighted to announce the start of the San Francisco Tarot Cafe! This semi-monthly gathering of Tarot readers, enthusiasts, professionals, students, and the mildly curious will take place the first and third Tuesday of every month beginning April 6, 2010, at the fabulous Borderlands Cafe, 870 Valencia Street in San Francisco. The Tarot Cafe will run 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm. We’ll be in the back of the cafe, with lots of tables and chairs for gathering in twos, threes, fives, etc. to ooh and aah over each other’s decks and do readings.
The Tarot Cafe isn’t a formal class or workshop. It’s an opportunity to meet with others who read the Tarot, talk about cards, practice readings, compare techniques, and enjoy the delightful beverages and delicious food offered by the friendly staff at Borderlands Cafe. We’ll start the evening with a question or topic to get the conversation going, but after that, the only guide is your imagination!
We’re excited about these gatherings, as they will give us all a chance simply to enjoy the Tarot – and the company of fellow Tarot enthusiasts – twice a month. There’s no admission fee; we ask only that you support the cafe by indulging in a coffee, tea, snack plate, or treat. (Or all of the above – why choose?!) Borderlands Cafe offers an extensive selection of teas and coffee drinks, and savory snacks and sweet treats sized for individual consumption, for sharing, or for a complete meal. (My favorite is the Antipasto Plate – yum!)
Borderlands Cafe is at 870 Valencia Street, between 19th and 20th Streets. It’s accessible from BART, Muni lines 14, 33, and 49, and a nice stretch of the legs from Muni lines 22, 48, and J Metro. Street parking is doable within a block or two of Borderlands, since the meters turn off at 6:00 pm.
Registration isn’t required, but we’d appreciate it if you would please email us so we have an idea of how many people to expect, that will allow us to reserve enough tables. Even if you don’t manage to let us know ahead of time, feel free to drop in – the more, the merrier!
See you at 7:00 pm on April 6 at Borderlands Cafe!
