Borrow Lombardi Sports’ Rooftop for Fleet Week!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Some airplane tricks or something

Loud noises!  Sailors!  Gay guys in hot pants!  These fit right into a game I like to call “Halloween, Pride or Fleet Week?”  One look out the window should tell you (as if you don’t already know, you savvy San Franciscan, you) that it’s FLEET WEEK and you know what that means — GIANTS PLAYOFFS!  Oops, still on last night time.  Do-over.

It’s FLEET WEEK and you know what that means — loud noises, sailors and gay guys in hot pants.  And some kind of airplanes doing twirlies or whatever they’re called in aviation land.  Anyway, point is you don’t want to miss out on the festivities of Fleet Week or everyone will think you’re lame.  But what if you don’t have a rooftop you can view the air show on Saturday from (without your landlord hearing you stomping around on it because he lives directly below)?

GO TO LOMBARDI SPORTS!  They have a rooftop they’re willing to let you borrow as long as you RSVP to with the number of guests in your party and FREE food and drinks for all!  For those of you protesting Fleet Week, you can just sulk, make mean faces and check out the “historical Hawaiian photography exhibit” that will be on display.  Or make out with a non-sailor.  Just do what feels right.

Fleet Week Air Show Viewing Party at Lombardi Sports Saturday, October 9, 12pm – 6pm 1600 Jackson St. (btwn Polk & 101) [Nob Hill] FREE

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.
