Best Hip-Hop Club Night 

'Pacific Standard Time' at 330 Ritch

Most hip-hop club nights are either too underground or too commercial. But 330 Ritch's "Pacific Standard Time" is that rare exception: Like Goldilocks' porridge, it's just right. Now in its fourth year, the club night — hosted by DJ Sake One and co-promoted by Ankh Marketing — has given the over-25 grown 'n' sexy crowd a reason to go out on Tuesdays. It offers a nice mix of bangin' old-school hip-hop, reggae dancehall, and classic and next-level soul and funk — making it easy to get your groove on. It has become a consistent showcase for both local talent and nationally known rappers, DJs, and singers. In the past year, special guests have included Zion-I, Jennifer Johns, Kool DJ Red Alert, and the Roots' ?uestlove. On nights when Sake One flies solo, you might hear four-hour sets dedicated to Al Green, James Brown, or Stevie Wonder.
