The weekend is almost here, what should we do?

Friday: Rodriguez at the Warfield

The legend returns to SF! Perhaps he’ll have a helpful take on the shitshow the world has become of late. Let’s rock out to this song and buy tickets.

Saturday: 20th Street Block Party


The annual tradition continues! Lots of bands, food and activities — and the above handy map gives you a quick idea of the scale of this year’s party. Read on for the full lineup.

Sunday: Brunch at Foxsister

We gushed about it at length last month, but basically all you need to know is benedict benedict benedict benedict AND the best new burger in town.

What kind of clown are you?

Tuesday is better with Tequila


On Trivia Tuesday, even when you lose, you are a winner.  Team Taco pictured here didn’t come in first but they walked with some badass swag from Partida.  Stop in this Tuesday and test your wits at Pops trivia night “POP’s Quiz” where your brain may get stumped on categories such as Pop’s culture, Sports, Movies, Music and more.  Here’s a little taste to get you in the mood:

  1. How many classifications of Tequila are there?
  2. Are all Tequilas a Mezcal?
  3. Is there a “no hangover” Tequila?

Check your expertise at the bottom and pair your Tuesdays with Trivia & Tequila at Pops Bar!

We snoop the Whisky Vending Machine


Since this retro image of an office whisky vending machine has been rolling around the internet, only one question comes to mind, “WHY DIDN’T THIS CATCH ON?” While it turns out that this machine is in fact real, reports that it was part of vending machine exhibit and convention from 1960.  The machine, produced by Rollason Aerocessaries of Croydon, mixed whisky, water and soda. Time switches ensured it locked automatically to conform with licensing hours.  Sadly this machine never took off, leaving us to dream of a workplace where a little whisky was not only encouraged but readily available.  For our part, all we can do is offer up your whisky buzz from 6am-2am at Pops Bar.  Bring your laptop, and it’s as close to living the dream as you can get.
