    Comment by AB: Conceived and produced by Jenny Sharaf, this wacky ephemeral only-in-San-Francisco convocation is the perfect antidote to those other art fairs. The dealie-bob materializes in a Fort Mason parking lot starting early in the morning and commences to dissipate a mere few hours later. Artists showcase their wares in parking spaces, tents, on the ground, out of the backs of their vehicles and in occasional shipping containers. Only a handful of hearty survivors are left by mid-afternoon, and not being known as an early riser, those who endure are who I get. Lucky them, right? But it's all good. Don't miss next year's entertaining episode.
