Happy New Week

It's that weird long road trip stretch between holidays. You can be focused on your destination and speed through the time, or make the most of it with the sparse odd road side attractions. Here are some diversions for the week, if you ain't be out of town still. And when you do come back, watch out for tigers. Really. Wednesday, December 26th:
  • POH
  • French Miami, Raccoons, Cubik & Origami $6 Hemlock Tavern 9.30pm. Friends of friend's band. Decide for yourself
  • Still time to go to Jovino at Union/Fillmore and give a winter coat to get 5 free coffee drinks. And not just any regular cup of joe: green tea lattes, hot chocolates, and white chocolate mochas can be your rewards til Dec 31
Thursday, December 27th:
  • Nanny time! Excellent!
  • The Onion's Society for Beer Enjoyment at Rickshaw 7-9pm free beer til the punctual people drink it all. To RSVP, e-mail sfpromo@theonion.com with "RICKSHAW" in the subject field. I think they're getting serious about the RSVP thing, so get on it. They are showing videos from The Onion News Network, so you won't even have to drink to have fun. Imagine that!
  • The Finches show at Hemlock could be aight 9.30pm $7
Friday, December 28th:
  • Rademacher's CD release party 8.30pm $8 Rickshaw
  • Hemlock strikes again with The Guilty Hearts and Les Hormones 9.30pm $6. Cut your bangs and wear black
  • [CANCELLED] No more Thao, but the other bands Oliver Future and Boy in the Bubble seem good. ---Just found out about Thao Nguyen's show at Hotel Utah Saloon 9pm $6. Too many concerts from which to decide!
Saturday, December 29th:
  • Really Really Free Market 1-5pm at Art SF (110 Capp 5th floor at 16th/Mission). Jeremy Dalmas is doing his hilarious interactive show at 3pm
  • Stussy SF in Upper Haight is having an art opening 7-10pm
Sunday, December 30th:
  • Red Hill Books in Bernal has their habitual Sunday wine snack 3-5pm event PLUS some crazy talented sax player doing cool stuff
Monday, December 31st: NYE gets a blurb. I'm not gonna list expensive events, but that doesn't mean some of them might not suck. Invite me to cool house parties you know about, and I'll do the same. Here are some public events:
  • Free midnight cava at Thirsty Bear. Is this true, Elaine?
  • Elbo Room has a 60's Soul Dance Party starting at 10pm and is charging $15-20 (so they can afford a W)
  • Mojo Bicycle Cafe party. Open all day, accelerating into party mode around 7pm? Paella and booze. No cover charge, but not sure what all is free (besides biker eye candy)
