Strippers Bring in 2010 By Dropping Their Drawers ... Or So The Sign Says

As you're honing your last minute New Year's Eve plans, the Snitch wanted to suggest one more option for ways to usher in 2010. We spotted this bad boy (or should we say girl?) on the seedy stretch of Market Street last night.

As the saying goes, behind every strip club, is a great marquee writer. If first place goes to the O'Farrell Theatre, for once advertising Dianne Feinstein's phone number on its bright sign, Market Street Cinema comes in second for its not-so-subtle New Year's message.

One more note: we wrote last summer

about the unfortunately named convenience store directly under the

sign: the T & A Market. At the time, the owners, Taha and Ahmed, said

they were petitioning to change the name of the store to simply the A

Market. Well, as you can see in the picture, it looks like they've

now altered the name on the sign by simply painting over

the "T &" part. That's just about as classy as showgirls dropping

their drawers at the stroke of midnight.

Hmmm ... dropping drawers at the stroke of midnight ... how did that plot twist get left out of Cinderella?

  • 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.'"
