Every Valentine’s Day for the past 10 years or more, the most beautiful display of love takes place in San Francisco. A giant-@ss pillow fight, of course. How else do you show your love then smacking your partner, closest friends, or wonderful strangers across the head with a (hopefully) fluffy pillow? This is somewhat an unofficial event, as there is no permit, but somehow it always seems to happen because, San Francisco. 1000 people coming down to Justin Herman Plaza (just down the street from the hostel!) to lovingly beat the crap out of each other once they’ve run Braveheart-like at full speed with a whistle blown to start the madness. What’s not to love? And last year there was even a T-Rex involved when we participated so… you probably shouldn’t miss this. And if you are considering sneaking your dorm bed pillow away to this event...just let us know. We have lots of old pillow we’d rather give you.Some top tips from SF. Funcheap:The event is always tentative – it’s like an unorganized flashmob – there could be 1,000 people. There could be zero people. The police could shut it downBring a mask or bandanna to cover your mouth – it’s easy to choke on flying feathers.Bring a synthetic pillow (not one with feathers). Trust us.. it’s much more enjoyable this way.Bring a garbage bag – have fun and then help clean up afterward – the price of having fun is keeping your city clean and makes it much less likely for the fuzz to shut this thing down.Build up your arm strength – your arms will be sore after this… trust us.It’s worth repeating… HELP CLEAN UP AFTERWARD – we can’t stress this enough so that we can continue having fun anarchy like this.
