All Day Happy Hour: 20 Hours of Beer on the Wall

When you live in a continuous fog bank, the hours spent self-medicating might be a tad more than that of those who live in sunnier climes of the city.  That said, it would seem the Big Heart Video Café is finally living up to the first half of their name

Wallet-friendly Advice From Your Friendly El Rio Bartender

As a general rule, I feel odd writing about events going on at my place of employment.  One because its redundant and two..well, best leave that one alone. Most people that have lived in the city for more than five years or live in the Outer Mission/ Bernal/ Excelsior hoods

Broke-Ass Porn: Free Sample Double Teaming

Once a week we present Broke-Ass Porn.  It’s visually stimulating material for the financially impaired.  If this shit doesn’t get you going, you’re not as broke as you thought: What do you do when you need to be satisfied in two totally different ways and you haven’t a penny to

Mad as Hell-Civic Center at 5 p.m. Tonight

Protesting never costs anything (unless you get thrown in the Big House, I guess) and for most San Franciscans is a crowd favorite varying from cause-du-jour to meaningful, visceral, in-your-face shit. Like most Californians know by now, the State Supreme Court handed down their convoluted ruling this morning and, naturally,

Drinking by Numbers at 440

When you’ve been in the city long enough, one begins to live in routines, sometimes only frequenting the same neighbourhoods, food joints and bars on a day-to-day basis.  Sometimes you need to change things up or entertain someone whose visiting.  It goes without saying that, with few exceptions, places like

Courting Bill W.- Two-4-One Fun at the Midnight Sun

Among the Castro bars, the Midnight Sun earns marks for consistency.  Atmospherically, it can best be described as a giant television.  There is never any natural daylight inside, as that there aren’t any windows, and it boasts no less than five television sets with either a constant rotation of gay
