Upper Playground friend Joey Garfield, who directed the Run Up with UP, also directed the film that ESPO did based on the Philly portion of “A Love Letter For You.” That film is now available on iTunes. Go get it.
After collaborating with Os Gemeos, Aryz decided to hang around Lodz, Poland for the Fundacja Urban Forms Festival, and dropped this impressionistic styled mural in town. (via)
Oh the rare days when the Bay Area can celebrate success on both sides of the San Francisco Bay. A new Bay Bridge Series on the horizon? And will you be prepared? Don’t get yourself in the headache of the painful split green/yellow x orange/black from 1989. This year, Upper Playgroundyour Bay headwear in tact: Green and Yellow New Era Snapback for those of you who prefer the East Bay, and a Orange and Black New Era Snapback for those of you who like the West.
We wanted to test this at gametime last night before we released this product. Now we know it comes satisfaction guaranteed.
The San Francisco Heritage Preservation Society cordially invites you to partake in its inaugural celebratory offering. Upper Playground x Botanica Yoruba presents for the first time in franchise history, the Candlestick Park Prayer Candle. The candle commemorates one of the oldest and most notorious stadiums in football history and the home to 5 rings and counting. The franchise will be celebrating their second to last season at said hallowed ground this 2012 season.
Kick off each game with the ultimate omen. Light the candle and summon greatness. Santa Clara… Shmanta Clara, the history and tradition will forever burn at Candlestick. Football is a ritual and Candestick is a tradition.
The candle includes a special prayer on the back in English/ Spanish courtesy of Botanica Yoruba, the oldest most historic botanica in town.
Botanica Yoruba is located at 3423 19th Street in San Francisco’s Mission District.
