Cole Hardware February Happy Hour

Arguably our most important supplier, Cole Hardware is a neighborhood treasure on Russian Hill. Once a month, they treat their rewards club members to a glass of wine and a $10 discount of a $25-or-more purchase.

— and if you think you don’t need $25 worth of stuff from Cole Hardware at least once a month, you are mistaken. They’ve got awesome stuff.
