FREE BBQ During World Cup Coverage at Northstar on Saturday

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Told you soccer players are babies.

I agree with Ashley — I just don’t get the fuss over The World Cup.  I mean, seriously, (hypothetical) guy I’m dating, you’re going to drag me to a bar to watch a sport I’ve never seen you watch, much less talk about (except to declare in passing one time that out of all the sports players, those who play hockey are the toughest, while soccer players are the pussiest), and act all nationalistic when usually it’s all like, “Fuck America! Europe’s so much more progressive.”

While I don’t care about nor understand people’s obsession with The World Cup, on Saturday Northstar Cafe is giving me something I do understand — FREE BBQ.  The USA vs. England game starts at 11:30, with the beefy, pork-y, barbecue-y deliciousness being served at halftime.  Of course it’s gonna be packed and the food will eventually run out, but I’m guessing you’ll be safe if, like me, your post during the first half of the game just happens to also be directly in front of the grill.

When Christy announced she was leaving her family's Southern California home and moving to San Francisco, her mom said, "Have fun in that den of sin." This is the only (however sarcastic) advice Christy has ever taken from her mom, who also told her to join and cover her eyes during sex scenes in movies. Christy puts her creative writing degree to good use by locating the typos on Chinese food menus and spends most of her time challenging friends to all-you-can-eat contests and trying to get that one bartender at Zeitgeist to smile.
