While some tent-it-out in parking lots of massive warehouse department stores this Black Friday, we here at Upper Playground have a far better idea. We kick off the holiday season with a 25% off all UP apparel and prints in our webstore ONLY from the 24 hour period of Friday, November 23, beginning 12AM PST Friday morning to 12AM PST Saturday morning. To those who camped out and missed the turkey dinner, we ate, and our Internet connection is locked in.
Make sure to tell your friends in their tent in parking lot C of that no-name chain store that in celebration of Small Business Saturday, Upper Playground retail stores in San Francisco, Berkeley, and Portland will all have 25% off sales, IN-STORE ONLY, on Saturday, November 24. Check here to find our store locations.

As you probably know by now, David Choe is kind of famous. That is sort of fun for us, because we remember the Baskin Robbins days. We are very excited today to announce a David Choe x Upper Playground special open-edition poster release, featuring 4 classic Choe works. Bangs, Choebot, Soulscraper, and Swamp Virus.
Each poster is 18″ x 24″, open edition, and $9.95.
Here is how David Choe describes it:
I realize my art has gotten quite unaffordable over the years, and those not in the print game, dont have the time to hunt down limited editon rare hard to find whatevers, I will now have something for you! I appreciate all the love and support from all of you who care about me and my work over the years that have afforded me the luxury to create whatever I want without HAVING to suck dick in dark alleyways, now me WANTING to do that, is a whole other story. I will be making posters and prints that are open edition and affordable for all my non-billionaire friends.
The holiday season means new gaming equipment is a must and Upper Playground have teamed up once again with fellow SF-based company, ASTRO Gaming, creators of premium video gaming equipment for professional gamers, to release three Artist Series Speaker Tags for the A40 Audio System. Upper Playground and ASTRO Gaming launched three different Speaker Tag sets featuring the work of Sam Flores and the classic Upper Playground logo (seen here).
