The Beautiful Freaks at Stuart’s 20th

Updated: Oct 15, 2022 09:39
The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Last night there was a party.

A party of freaks, geeks, and artists.  A dance floor full of burlesque dancers, bartenders, and buskers.   A crowd of cacophonists, comedians, cooks, clowns, caterers, and commies.  Politicians, perverts, queers, teachers, writers, progressives, punks and every kind of beautiful San Franciscan one could hope to share a drink and a laugh with.

Broke-Ass Stuart’s 20th year in San Francisco earned a celebration.  Despite all odds and defying all reason that gregarious poet, that fowl-mouthed thespian, that communistic columnist has survived in the most expensive city around…all the while holding a megaphone for the creatives and working stiffs in the Bay.

On behalf of and all of our wonderful writers and contributors, Stuart and I would like to thank YOU for your support over the years.  We’ve needed it, and we’ve loved it.

Below are pictures of the awesome performers, our incredible sponsors, and of course you, our favorite readers, last night at Public Works in San Francisco.
