SF Station Happy Hour

The day has finally arrived! What will we do without Prop 3's "Imagine" song running every five minutes? Hopefully you've made it down to your local polling station to have your voice heard. And if you haven't, there's still time. In the spirit of free speech, give an Election Night Coverage Open Mic shout out to your peeps tonight at the Pirate Cat Radio Cafe or write your predictions on the walls of the YBCA and be a part of history in the making. On Wednesday, take a well deserved post election break and join the SF Station crew for Happy Hour from 4pm - 7pm at Temple Nightclub. We'll have drink specials and special treats from Prana. Hilarity ensues on Friday night when Jim Gaffigan returns to SF for The Sexy Tour at The Warfield. As if you ever needed an excuse to drink before the sun sets, the Endup's got you covered either way with Bierfest on Saturday afternoon. For a slightly more sober scene check out the experimental / psych / hip hop showcase at Brainfeeder Festival at 103 Harriet. And on Monday, SF Wine Week kicks off it's celebration of new generations of wine producers at various venues across the city.
