One thread for all of the on-going jam sessions in the Bay Area. SAN FRANCISCO: JAPANTOWN PEACE PAGODA - FRIDAYS, 5 - 8 pm If you haven't heard, KG Tuesday is no longer going to be held at the hone zone, aka the peace pagoda (more info further down in the thread). To keep the San Francisco jams alive, one of the Tuesday homies, Chris (@punkrockpiper), has decided to throw his own jams at the Peace Pagoda on Fridays instead of Tuesdays. Same time and place, new day. @daun_yon will also be frequenting these jams as he works down the street. Come hang with him on Fridays as well, he'll be sure to level you up on tricks! To stay updated on these jams, follow the Ghost Fox page on Instagram: @ghost.fox.official! Chris also makes some pretty sweet kendama bags, and Ghost Fox is the name of his brand. It's a page dedicated to the kendama meet ups and his bags, so if that's something you're interested in, check it out! Hopefully more people will be able to come out since it will be the weekend! SAN JOSE: SAN JO SLAY - CHINESE CULTURAL GARDENS, SATURDAYS, 2 - 6 pm This jam is run by the wizard himself, Ben Herald (@benherald). I don't think I have to tell you to follow him to stay updated because if you're not following him at this point, you SLEEPIN! These jams are super chill, the jam spot is in the back of the park so it's pretty secluded from the rest of the people who use it for parties and such. It's peaceful and quiet and just an all around nice jam spot. There's also a Wendy's nearby, so munchies are covered. In terms of staying updated on the San Jo Slay jams, follow Ben or Jacob Low (@jacoblow). They always post about the jams.
