Late Night Pizza Ban To Reduce Drunken Fighting? Yeah, Sure.

Posted By on Thu, Nov 29, 2007 at 9:00 AM


City officials are considering whether to order late-night pizza parlors Cable Car Pizza and Broadway Express Pizza to start closing early (by which I mean 2:00 a.m.) in North Beach in an effort to reduce drunken frolicking (by which I mean fighting) in the streets after the area bars and clubs close. I don't know when the last time the city's Planning Commission got wasted and hung around North Beach in the middle of the night was, but if they gave it a shot, they might realize a few of the cardinal rules of drunkenness:

1. Hungry drunks are quicker to anger.

2. Food, especially greasy-ass pizza, soaks up booze and often soothes the savage drunk.

3. Standing in line at a pizza parlor increases the time between your last drink and your drive home.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
