Best Food-Friendly Theater 

The Exit Theatreplex

In a country where most performing arts venues won't sell you an alcoholic beverage, let alone let you bring it into the auditorium, the Exit Theatre's cafe space is a modest yet wonderful bastion of hospitality. Located in the heart of the Tenderloin in the same building as two of the Exit's main performance spaces, the cozy and cheerfully managed cafe serves theatergoers such unpretentious yet appetizing treats such as bountiful fruit and cheese plates as well as copious slices of quiche garnished with apple slices (both a steal at $5). There are also wine, beer, and sake. The booze may not be top-shelf, but the voluminous pours go down nicely alongside the cafe's seemingly bottomless supply of free pretzels. The best thing of all is that, unlike at many other venues in town, audience members can take food and drink to their seats.
