Meet and Greet the Contestants
The big “Meet and Greet” event for all the contestants will be held on Thursday, March 1, from 6 to 8 pm, at Mr. S. Leather, located at 385 8th Street, near Harrison. This friendly and casual event is always great, so come and kick off your Leather Alliance Weekend at one of the world’s most iconic leather stores!

Meet and Greet the Bootblacks
Your best chance to meet and greet the contestants for 2018 San Francisco Bootblack was Sunday, February 11, at the Boot Brunch & Open Leather Lounge, a monthly event held by the SF Bay Area Bootlab at SF Catalyst.
The new boot stand at the SF Eagle is always a fine place to hang and chat with San Francisco’s best bootblacks. If your timing is right, you might also catch them at the boot stand at Mr. S. Leather. Watch for other opportunities to meet (and get your leather shined up by!) the contestants!
