Local nightclub and gambling den gets cool new signage


Looks pretty fun!

Capp Street Crap has the story:

Taylor Peck, the owner of the former Fizzary soda shop, told Capp Street Crap that he spray painted the messages on the front of the building yesterday in hopes of forcing authorities to do more about a dangerous new problem going on inside.

“I’m in a really frustrating situation and this was a last ditch effort to get some assistance/attention,” he wrote in an email.

According to Peck, after blowing fuses in the building, the people who have been subleasing from him and operating an alleged gambling den, have started using a gasoline generator inside an upstairs office of the building for power. A gasoline generator used inside would be a carbon monoxide threat.

Who says the Mission is no fun anymore???

Drama Talk & Drinks: The Golden Girls: The Christmas Episodes

It’s time for one of my favorite SF holiday traditions. Nope, not those lame ugly sweater parties or shamelessly drinking ginger bread lattes.….Yep you guessed it! The Golden Girls: The Christmas Episodes. Brittany wasn’t able to make opening weekend this year, but I couldn’t pass it up so I brought “Thank you for being a friend” Garrett Lamb and we headed to the Victoria Theater with anticipation of reliving our 80′s/early 90′s child hoods.


Garrett: Wow. I will never look at the Golden Girls the same. That was fabulous! Such a riot. I wasn’t sure what vibe to expect, but they really nailed it….and the audience was super into it. Some people were a little too drunk, and yelling out lines, but oh well. The expressions and inflections of the girls were right on. They captured the characters so well.

Katie: This is the second time I’ve come to Golden Girls and it was just as fun as the first time around. Perfect pure entertainment value. Good writing executed in a live performance by amazing drag queens is my heaven. And the Golden Girls had some good writing. I love this cult show. I hope it comes back year after year.

The Verdict: Did you like the Golden Girls? Do you like fun? Then go, go now and get your tickets before this show is completely sold out.

The Drama Talk: It’s amazing how this 80’s TV show translates so well to today. The actors execution of the dry humor dripping with double entendres and sexual overtones is impressive.  Equally impressive are the many 80′s outfits these ladies wear that get as much reaction from the audience as their outlandish lines. It’s no surprise why this show sells out every year. Our advice, get there early to get a good seat and get a drink.

The Drinks: Last time we went to the Victoria Theater to see Golden Girls we went to Esta Noche for drinks which was my favorite gay bar. Unfortunately Esta Noche closed over a year ago and was replaced with Bond Bar. I’ve been curious to see how the place was transformed but haven’t been in until now. And it’s what was to be expected. Another artsy cocktail bar…the mission needed another one of those I guess. Well if you’re wanting to grab a fancy cocktail after the show this can be one of your many options.

The Golden Girls: The Christmas Episodes runs through December 20th at The Victoria Theatre. Tickets are $25 and available at http://goldengirlschristmas.eventbrite.com/.
