So usually when you think about Friday the 13th, you might be all, “Uh-oh, maybe I’ll see a black cat today or randomly switch bodies with my mom and learn a valuable lesson,” you know, fun stuff, but you probably AREN’T thinking, “My house is going to burn down.” I guess there’s also the whole hockey-masked Jason Voorhees serial killer thing, but short of being murdered, losing the place where you live is at the top of the things-you-don’t-want-to-happen list.
Luckily the ladies (formerly) of 508 Capp St., who actually did lose their home to a fire on Friday, May 13, aren’t going to let a few nasty flames kick their asses, and you shouldn’t either. Instead, come out to their After the Fire Benefit at Tope on Thursday and celebrate, in the words of the Capp St. gals, “life, health, good friends, and surviving all that life throws at you!” From 6pm – 10pm, there will be snacks, $3 well drinks and beer specials, live music by Bruce Rodgers, and a set by DJ Mike Lewis.
Of course, no benefit is complete without a good old fashioned auction/raffle, so bring some cash to bid on shit you know you’re going to buy anyway in the next few weeks (Giants tix, restaurant gift certificates, WINE) and help out the Capp St. crew. Or if you had a fucking amazing month monetarily and just feel like being an awesome person, donate here. Oh, and for all you hunky firefighters out there, this party’s shirt optional.After the Fire Benefit at Tope Thursday, June 2, 6pm – 10pm 1326 Grant Ave. (btwn. Green & Vallejo) [North Beach] a
