The Haight Street Hop!

Ever since Rockabilly Fridays have come to an end at Retox, it’s left a lot of folks without their weekly record hop. While the ever so often shows are fun and all, we need some sort of regular event!

Sick of sitting at home with your hand down your pants? Maybe you’re tired off farting in the bathtub, laughing your ass off. Well, look no further folks. It seems like “Handsome” Hawk Valentine has given us an answer, to your lonely Friday night prayers…

Starting Friday March 4th, there’s gonna be a monthly Haight Street Hop, manned by Tanoa and Oran. FINALLY… Another place to get drunk on a Friday night! And if you cats haven’t noticed by now, I just love drinking on a Friday night!  Definitely beats going around hopping from bar to bar, only to be surrounded by bros. Definitely like oil and water with me. Just doesn’t mix well…

It’s going to be held at Milk Bar, which also houses a ton of other sorts of event nights. But if it’s good enough for reggae nights, then it’s good enough for rockabilly nights, then it’s good enough for me!

One thing I like about this new event, is that they’re really pushing for local merchants to come out. And when the locals come out to support such events, the longer they last. If only people frequented Retox more often…

From swing lessons from Justin from Slim Jenkins, a Pin Up contest and prizes by Dollhouse Bettie, to free hairstyling from the kind folks at the Wak Shack, this is gonna be one hell of an event! And yes, for you cats who don’t know how to pomp too well, they will be doing pompadours as well! But ya know… If you’ve been reading my blog long enough, you should be doing it well by now ;)…

To top it all off… PBR + Whiskey (better be either Jameson, Wild Turkey, or good ol’ J.D.!!!,) is only $5! $20 and you’ll be nicely topped off.

So come on out, it’s gonna be a blast! But if you try and cut me off for parking, expect a flat tire.

    • Hey Jon,

      Yeah man. I’m from San Mateo, but I’m always up in San Francisco.
