Rumble It Up with 2 AM Club

We knew we were on to something when we elected The Rumble the "Best Place to Hang with the Tastemakers" in SF in our Best Of issue. The monthly indie dance party at Harlot—created by local music zine publisher Jason Jurgens (The Owl Mag) and music-industry golden ear Larry Little (Future Sounds)—celebrates it's one year anniversary Wednesday, October 1. It's their first on the first.

Happy Hour! Presidential Debates! Drama! Where to Watch in SF

Every so often, a monumental event takes place on television that we ALL must tune in and watch. A civic duty of sorts for the voyeuristic set. Will Tom Brady live up to expectations and bring a Superbowl victory to the Patriots? Negative, Ghostrider. Will Britney's performance of "Gimme More" at the VMA's launch her career comeback? Not so much. And can we really stand an entire hour of home videos comprised of dads getting sacked in the nuts by their kids? The answer: yes we can!

Gab Fest with Proenza Schouler

Fresh off of New York Fashion Week, the genius boys behind Proenza Schouler (a.k.a. Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez) breezed through San Francisco recently for a private trunk show and cocktail party at Neiman Marcus and, of course, a gab fest with 7x7. With leather gloves, sleek jumpsuits and zippered pencil skirts from their Spring 2009 collection in tow, the playful Manhattan-based duo shared their thoughts on diving into accessory design, getting inspired, and dressing their mothers.

Museum Artifacts: The Moss Room and the Academy Cafe

Yes, I’ll be headed to the amazing, new California Academy of Sciences to marvel at the albino alligator and the suspended blue whale skeleton and the high-tech hand-driers in the bathrooms (a true force of nature).

But I’m to be honest, I think I’ll just let my kids look at the fish while I eat.

Getting Lucky in Union Square

Do Italians make better lovers? Are the French more daring? Are Americans oversexed? Are San Franciscans’ proclivities off the charts?
 
I know, I know, you can’t stereotype a nation. But I’ve always wanted to know: Why do stereotypes exist if not to play with them?
 
So if you’ve wanted to experiment with international lovers, just head to Union Square. There’s no time like the present to shag a foreigner. The dollar is plunging and the tourists are shopping.
 
You can spot them juggling Saks and Macy’s and Banana Republic bags and sporting that dreamy look in their eyes that says, “I can’t believe the deal I got on this iPod.”
