Since our launch, The Bold Italic has strived to faithfully serve San Franciscans near and far, whether born and bred here or having just arrived in the city. We have a great passion for the Bay Area and all that it has to offer — and have had a lot of fun sharing our enthusiasm with you. Together we have built a strong community of followers, contributors, and partners. However, we have made the difficult decision to cease operations. It’s been a great run and we supremely thank everyone who has supported us along the way.This is especially sad news in light of the not-so-distant folding of the alt-weekly, The San Francisco Bay Guardian, which shuttered last fall. Not to mention whatever the hell is happening with SF Weekly.
