Here's a roundup of what's piquing our interest this week:

We're giving away a Remodelista Holiday Gift Box (shown here) to one randomly selected winner from the list of attendees. Look for the announcement on the Facebook event page by 6pm on Friday and pick up the box in person the next day. Can't join us in SF? Stay tuned as we will be giving away another Holiday Gift Box online in the next couple of weeks.
