I’m crossing the bridge to San Francisco tomorrow to meet with artist Phil Ross, but I’m hoping to connect with another maker or two. Anyone got any ideas? In particular, I’d like to meet up with makers who are making the transition from part-time, amateur maker to maker pro. I’m also interested in checking out cool hackerspaces and makers who work in food, urban agriculture, and sustainability. Taco truck recommendations are welcomed, too. Please send suggestions my way in the comments below.

Joe Tocci, a local Tech Shop instructor, metalsmith, physics guy, and all around badass, just opened his own blacksmithing shop in SF, and is looking for new clients. Here’s his FB if you want to get in touch: https://www.facebook.com/joe.tocci.5
Go to techshop and/or noisebridge and ask around.
Come visit the ShopMahal in Petaluma and see how we are doing our bit to change the food chain. See my MakerFaire talk here: http://makerfaire.com/pub/e/8093
If you are crossing the Bay Bridge from Oakland, there is an interesting Hackerspace along the way on Treasure Island. I’m new to the Bay area, but a local friend introduced me to Treasure Island last weekend, and we found some pretty amazing projects going on in a nondescript warehouse called “Building 2”. From the outside it looks like an old airplane hanger (the Island is mostly converted Navy buildings and barracks). But inside there are many large-scale projects, sculptures, and vehicles. Many still have the desert dust from Burning Man. Definitely worth a look. If you have trouble finding it through my description, here are the GPS coordinates: 37.81851, -122.36779
We have quite a bit of cool custom makers in SF on Zaarly. Would love to meet up and see if we can do something together! here is a sample: https://www.zaarly.com/kenzkouture
