I'm not really familiar with SF so I'm not sure if across the street of all night clubs are a line of homeless people sleeping on the floor. BUT yeah it was like that and slightly intimidating. So I would say pay the 10$ parking instead of street parking. my friend and I thought the area kind of looked sketch...UM. It had 2 stories and 3 different rooms playing different types of music. There's a small bar upstairs near the entrance and a bar in every room so that was good. It's free before 10pm if you put yourself on the guest list unless you want to pay 20$. And it closes at 4am. I wandered through the different rooms and didn't like any of them except for the main room that played trance. The hiphop room was okay and the little room to the side...well..sucked..it was playing house? I think? I kind of wonder who stays til 4am because by 2am I think there were very few girls and very aggressive guys. But don't write them all off cause I met some pretty chill guys.

When you get engaged to your one true love, you will go to the edges of the earth for them. Or you will go home to Oakland after work on a rainy Monday, only to come BACK over the treacherous Bay Bridge for his SanFranniversary. 15 years, to be exact...I hope we make it that long. In any case, although I've driven by this place a million times (both in the rain, and when it's dry), I have never come here. So when Gregor invited me to celebrate our engage...I mean his SanFranniversary, I was there. Of course, I read the reviews of all my "friends," and was excited to see what was in store. Even though I don't sing, because you'd much rather listen to Sarah Palin talk about foreign policy than hear me belt out my chosen song. I really, really, really like this place. Reasonably priced drinks, a dark and intimate setting, and a fiance dedicating "The Lady is a Tramp" to me? What could be better? On yeah, and I'm having my birthday party here. February 27th. You'll show up if you know what's good for you, although me singing "I've Got You Under My Skin" is not good for you. Yes, the fiance and I love Frank Sinatra. No, he did not dump me after I butchered that song, although I'm sure some people were ready to cut off their ears. Come here. You'll have a good time.

The idea of drinking on the water and relaxing is great, especially in new york. But the reality of the frying pan is that you need to score a good table in order to enjoy this. I came with three other friends, and we nearly got stuck on a table with no shade, very close to the stage during Bahamas Day where the DJ just kept shouting from the stage. Not too pleasant. But one of my friends scored a table a bit further away, with shade. We then proceeded to stake out for over two hours. I can't imagine what it would've been like if we'd had a different table. Food-wise, the clam bake dish was meh. Mussels were fishy, clams were the best, but everything got cold quickly and made it less appetizing. We also scored two shrimp. If you want to eat here, I'd go with a burger or a hotdog. Oh, and the garlic/old bay fries were TASTY. White sangria was good, but general drink portions are small. The bloody mary was all right, and the pinot grigio was ok. Again, not blown away here. I realllly should've gotten a beer and burger... next time!
