It is said that college is a fountain of knowledge -- where students go to drink. That being said, for undergrads other than seniors, possessors of false IDs, and those taking a play out of the Stalin or Mao book and opting for the Five-Year Plan, drinking is not so easy as wandering into a watering hole and getting watered.
So it's interesting that mayoral aspirant Bevan Dufty is this Saturday "inviting all COLLEGE STUDENTS living in San Francisco" to "discuss SF student issues" -- at a bar. Perhaps issue No. 1 will be "I'm not permitted to go in there."
A student forum isn't the usual Saturday fare at Trigger, a gay bar and nightclub across the street from the Castro Theatre. The establishment's website flogs quite a deal: "Ketel One Booth & Bottle Service -- $150 All Weekend Long." Mentions of vodka and the term "all weekend long" may remind some of their college days. Paying $150 for it likely does not. (nor does "Ketel One").
Messages for Dufty, his coorganizer, and the venue have not yet been returned. So just what the mayoral candidate is hoping for by holding a student powwow at Trigger as an entre to the club's standing Saturday show -- DJ Claksaarb and guest DJs spin electro, top 40, and mashup with sexy gogo dancers -- remains to be seen.
