Barring Disaster

Mayday! Mayday!

Base to camp: Summer’s on the horizon and you’ve got nothing to wear.

Crack The Bar Code tomorrow at Pier 3. Located in an industrial space near the Ferry Building (behind La Mar), SF’s new bimonthly sale hawks wholesale-priced designer and contemporary clothes and accessories (from shops like Candystore Collective) amid live music, art, and a cocktail lounge overlooking the water.

Peruse Chloé raincoats and Balenciaga handbags alongside Tribute frocks and Venus Superstar jewelry, while Ian Ross paints (all artwork is for sale), and San Franpsycho turns out custom screen-printed tees.

Look for The Ex-Code — a special swapping section — coming at the next event.

In case you’re SOS (seeking others’ stuff).

The Bar Code, Pier 3, The Embarcadero, at Broadway Street. For more information and to R.S.V.P., go to shopthebarcode.com.
