Okay so i have not been able to have the pleasure of dining at Silk City yet, but I made my way there twice already and had a great time. The first time it was kind of early on a Wed night and things were slow but the bartender was cool, drinks came at a normal time-woohoo----and they were good! And for my second time, the crowd was dancing their asses off and hell yeah that was fun------good music (thank u DJ) and a great way to end my birthday!! again--- music was kickass on thursday!

i lied. last review.... cus i went there tonight. what the hell?! i thought it didn't matter what night you went there -- you would be guaranteed 80's music at the Cat Club. i mean, GUARANTEED! it was like Goth/Silence of Lambs/Wear All Black Night or something. my date and i came to the door and the door guys were like "ummm don't you two mean to go next door (some yuppie bar)...". we were like, "don't pay no attention to our designer clothes and manicured fingers, bouncer dudes... we BELONG here cus we listen to Michael Jackson and Pat Benetar religiously!". anyway. we made a pact never to go back 'cept on Thursdays. there is certainly a place in SF for Cat Club. it's truly an institution. i've had many a memorable night there, just not tonight. nuff said.

Shitty sports/dive bar with a shitty bartender. Perhaps my impression of this bar would have been different, had the bartender not acted like a douche on the first drink I ordered. I asked for a black & tan. He pours and says $5.50. I pull $7 out of my wallet, give him $6 and put $1 down on the bar. He grabs the $1 and walks to the cash register. He does not come back with my 50 cents. Now, I didn't say anything...I mean, who starts a scene over 50 cents? But I was still put off by his assumption that I didn't want change. When I recounted the story to my friend who's been here before, he didn't seem at all surprised and said the bartender has been known to yell at people for leaning on the pool table or standing where he needed to walk. He can shove his shitty little bar far up his royal ass for all I care -- I won't be coming back here.
