Rebecca, formerly of My First Earthquake, has always been great at promotional clips. Check it out:
I was at a private party at J. Rusten Furniture Studio (the best place in the neighborhood for a private party I think) the other night, and I drank a LOT of things (tequila on the rocks, tequila and lemonade on the rocks, beer and lemonade on the rocks, beer and tequila and lemonade on the rocks), but this was the highlight.
Mr. Rusten was giving a tour of the facilities, and somebody came back with this scrap of some kind of fancy cedar I think, and it looked like a twist of lemon, and I was wasted probably, so I decided to incorporate it into my cocktail, as a garnish. Turns out, the crisp, woody aroma of the shaving complemented the tequila nicely.
(Thanks again for throwing such a sick party, Chex!)

Adobe Books is almost all settled in their new cozy location at 24th Street, and they want to invite you over to check out their new home!
Come to our first ever event in our new location! Our Marketplace event is this Saturday May 18th. Join us as we invite local artists and merchants to sell out of the brand new Adobe books. Browse the wares of your talented Bay Area comrades like Ryan De La Hoz and Amos Goldbaum, and enjoy music by DJs Melissa Funk, Tylawave & Andy Pabstalaniec, as well as food & drinks by Rainbow Grocery and Speakeasy Ales and Lagers. All bar proceeds and 10% of sales from the marketplace will be donated to help open the new Adobe Books.

It’s part Mad Men, part Mars Attacks, and takes place partially on a Mission rooftop:
Okay now go back to Daft Punk. (And sorry about the long headline.) (Oh and the band is called Date Nite.)
Esta Noche is in trouble!
Last year the Board of Supervisors passed laws that can make it harder for some small businesses to afford their permitting and license fees. Unfortunately, Esta Noche will have to pay for all their licenses in one bulk payment which is already one month late.
We need to raise $9,000 in the next two weeks in order to keep San Francisco’s only Latino queer bar open. We need your help!
Here’s what you can do:
Donate: Every dollar up to $9,000 will go to Esta Noche to help them keep their doors open. Any additional monies raised will be given to El/La (a Trans-Latina nonprofit in The Mission)
Come to our party: Join us May 18th as local queer DJs, drag performers, and politicians come together to save Esta Noche!
Tell your friends: Spread the love. Share this on Facebook and via word of mouth!

Our pal Jeff Seal, who, incidentally, in his capacity as standup comedian, is performing Wednesday night at The Business, just posted this ‘gram of a column his teenage self wrote for his high school paper, back in high school, like 20 years ago:
The Business takes place every Wednesday evening at the Dark Room on Mission Street.
It’s still untitled, so we have time to submit some more here . . .

We’ve gushed about Cool Try and its awesome line of t-shirts and things many times in these pages, so we’re happy to be able to say Cool Try is now a real-life store right here in the Mission!
It’s located at 483 14th Street, at Guerrero, right across from Thieves Tavern and Box Dog.
Now here’s everything we’ve ever said about Cool Try and founder Ryan de la Hoz:
