Halloween 2009

Even the Bay Bridge being closed couldn’t deter us!  Dammit we were going to The City for a night of debauchery!  Started the evening in Berkeley at Kristen & Brian’s house, we all got ready and then headed for the naughty Broadway District to Horizon Ultra Lounge and Apartment 24.  When the two clubs didn’t suffice, we made the taxi ride to the other side of the city, to the middle of Castro.  Even though they still are not having the block party (9 people were shot in 2006) it was still jam-packed with some of the most imaginative, intriguing costume go-ers I have seen.  Being there again, made me wish people knew how to act right; because many people will probably never experience the “true” Castro Halloween circa early 2000’s.  After shuffling through the sidewalks single-file for a couple hours and realizing that we weren’t going to be able to boogie-woogie at Badlands, we made our way back to Broadway and danced until it was time to catch BART. 

BART did an amazingly SHITTY job managing the hordes of people who were trying to leave San Francisco.  A BART train finally came 45 minutes after it was supposed to be there, only for us to be jammed in like sardines a la this video.  It was hundreds of people shoving to try to get in and not wait another hour for the next train.  It’s okay though, despite the screw up, I still love you BART.  So finally we got home safe and sound with all fingers and toes.  A wonderful night, with great peeps, lots of fun and some inappropriate, but harmless groping!  😉 

Thanks San Francisco- you make me miss home even more…

CD Listening Soiree on Saturday

Yep yep.  Dope.  Be on the lookout for Jason Hunter’s new EP that is coming out in October.  I was one of the lucky few to listen to the finished product before it goes to be pressed.  Check out his Myspace page here.  It is a mix of dance/electronic- there are some really emotional songs and some that you can really dance to.  I will keep us up to date on when it drops and hits iTunes.
