This makes for a fun SF night--when lots of good stuff doesn't overlap, and lays out across the city with convenient geographic sequence.
5:45 Yummy Citrus Club for dinner. Noodles and shrimp with sweet creamy coconut sauce. I'll be cutting that sweetness with some Nuac Cham.
7:00 Yummy Spoon rock music. Across the street from dinner. Free. They delight me to no end.
8:00 A drink at Persian Aub Zam Zam, a windowless oasis with a medieval Persian theme. Opened in 1941.
8:30 Hopefully yummy A's game at SF's "A's bar," Thieves' Tavern. Actually painted yellow and green--with pool, pinball, and great jukebox. Not really a sports bar, as much as a flash point for lots of SF subcultures. Tom Waits and the Replacements and Van Halen and singing along to Hedwig. And the troubled A's play the Yankees.
10:00 Our pal Annie djs at the Attic, playing pop/dance/indie/non-indie rock music from the 60's to the hits of today. Always an air of folderol.
12:30 DJ Jester, the Filipino Fist at 12 Galaxies. Jester will drop Pavement onto Willie Nelson and segue to Jay-Z. He does not care. At all. Also free, for the Onion's party. And the Dead Hensons, a muppet cover band plays at some point. Might have to juggle this with Annie.
