It also organizes countless free events happening in the city to make them easier to find. There are already hundreds of options each week, with more being added all the time. You can download Galore here:, and please feel free to pass on to anyone in SF who you think would be interested.  As a special promotion, Russian Hill Neighbors’ families will get $20 to spend anywhere on Galore with promo code RHN.
