Benefit for the Ladies (Formerly) of 508 Capp Street Tomorrow!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

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

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.
