Budget yachting on a warm summer’s eve


Budget yachting is a pastime we should all be taking greater advantage of, all the time (as we’ve discussed before) but there’s nothing quite like being out in the middle of the bay on a warm summer’s evening, darkness all around you except for a few familiar beacons off in the distance, whiskey in hand.

Lexington Club commemorative plaque unveiled outside place that used to be the Lexington Club


Capp Street Crap reports:

On Monday afternoon, owner Lila Thirkield, former staff, politicians and about a hundred fans of the bar turned out for the plaque’s unveiling and to celebrate the Lexington’s 18 years at 3463 19th St. Now home to the upscale Wildhawk, the iconic Mission lesbian bar closed in April 2015 following its sale to the Plumpjack Group.

Stinky’s al Fresco! Starring the Gories, High on Fire, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, the Spits and lots more!!!


Here’s something new! It’s Stinky’s al Fresco, a weekend-long block party just outside the Mission, starring some of the best rock ‘n’ roll bands ever! I mean, THE GORIES. (Your beloved Ty Segall masqueraded as them for Halloween in the Mission a few years back.)

Here’s the Saturday lineup:

  • The Gories
  • Me First & The Gimme Gimmes
  • The Spits
  • Bass Drum of Death
  • The Pagans
  • NOTS
  • Audacity
  • The Booby Trapz

And Sunday:

  • Naked Raygun
  • Mac Sabbath
  • Radio Moscow
  • Mondo Drag
  • Glitter Wizard
  • The Re-Volts
  • Wild Eyes

And a little bit about the Stinky’s team:

From the debased and deviant heads that devised that shotgun-marriage of rock and sleaze called Stinky’s Peepshow comes the next step in the evolution of live entertainment in San Francisco!

Naturally, the more evolved among you will select to attend Stinky’s al Fresco, where you can expect to enjoy smutty back-room scenarios dreamt-up by our city’s pervert avant-garde, and be smitten by the next generation of large & lovely go-go dancers as they shake their leg-meat to the jungle beat of rock n’ roll, punk, and soul.

Saturday (and weekend-long) tickets here. Sunday tickets here. SEE YOU THERE

Join the SF Berlin-Style Ping Pong League, now only a 4-week commitment!


Starts Monday! Here’s the info:

A new, shorter, 4-week season of the SF Berlin-Style Ping Pong League kicks off this Monday at Pops Bar on 24th Street in the Mission! Less commitment, less competition, faster pace! Plenty of prizes, plenty of beers and shots!

Make new friends, reconnect with old friends! DJs Beauregard & Nutzeffekt (and friends) spinnin’ hot jams all night each and every Monday. Pop’s is a short walk from BART, no walk from Muni, and after dark there’s always security out front to keep an eye on your bikes. And for dinner, it’s the Mission: taco shops on every corner!!

Please do us a favor and tell your friends, and maybe even sign up!

Biographical Info:

"I joked that living in the Mission would be the end of me. And there were nights where it felt like the case.

One night I went out with my friend Allan to the bar that no one goes to on 16th Street, where I lost half my drink and money on the dance floor. Later we skated down 16th to Evelyn Lee, where I fell off my board and landed on my head as the 22 bus sped past behind me. A sobering moment. At the bar, I sulked and nursed my wounds until Allan put on Amy Winehouse’s 'Valerie.' We danced, he dipped me, and I felt better."

— My pal Valerie, writing about life in the Mission
