Finally, another lesbian bar at the Mission
Deprived of a dedicated water point since the Lexington Club closed in 2015, the lesbians of San Francisco have just had Christmas before Christmas. Jolene’s Bar opens this weekend at the corner of Harrison and 16th Street (the former Dear Mom spot), with the promise of an experience deeply rooted in underground nightlife.
Owned by the namesake Jolene Linsangan, Ashleigh Wilson and Shannon Amitin, the bar will open at 9 p.m. tonight with the relaunch of the popular lesbian pop-up party UHAUL SF. The official opening ceremony will take place on Saturday, December 15 at 4 p.m., followed by a marathon evening until 2 a.m., to be repeated on Sunday.
“Every day, gay people experience something in their daily life that makes them uncomfortable,” the trio wrote on their Instagram Account. âWhen you walk through our doors, you will be safe with us. “
For those who think young
If Jolene’s doesn’t quite do it for you, Make-Out Room (3225 22nd St.) is welcoming the dirty kid to their 90s-themed indie bash Debaser party. Last night – like the song by The Strokes – intends to bring back to life the early 2000s, when garage rock, dance punk and electroclash came together to make America dance again. A long time ago, when guitars were still a staple of mainstream music!
You know you’re old when your music gets retro. We can’t help with this, but this event just might.
John O’Connell High and All-In SF join forces for their fourth annual toy giveaway, to be held at the school (2355 Folsom Street) on Saturday, December 15 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The initiative is expected to release up to 300 toys, and anyone who attends is asked to bring one. Students will serve coffee and apply makeup on site. In addition to toys, the needy will also receive haircuts and food.
Grand final at the Mission Cultural Center
The Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts presents its end of semester show, where teachers and students will present the various classes held at the center. Participating classes include: La Orquesta Del Barrio, Kid’s Drumming, Capoeira, Ballet, Mixtiso Dance, and an exhibition by students from Mission Grafica. The event will take place at the center (2868 Mission Street) on Saturday 15, from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
