YBCA "Maker’s Paradise" this Saturday

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts always has something interesting going on… this Saturday seems exceptionally fun and collaborative with their DIYbca Big Idea Night, where you can make your own experimental instruments with Kwisp, remodel your own shoes with Mrs.Vera, stencil with Jeremy Novy, and eat, drink, dance, and be merry.
