Donate a Toy for Christmas, Get a Beer or a Lap Dance

In San Francisco, we are apparently more charitable when we are a little drunk. Hell, we would even donate a toy or two to a needy kid if we're promised a lap dance in exchange. 

C'mon. Like the kids will know the difference.

We've gone out before to the Hustler Club in North Beach, where, along with many other strip clubs in the city, the owners donate the house proceeds during one "benefit" stripping song to the Fire Fighters Union Toy Drive. ("Strippers, toys, and homeless kids! Everybody wins!" exclaimed one dude.)

Before we go on, check out the killer promo video featuring a teddy bear, Barbie, and a giraffe roaming the San Francisco streets in this toy drive! 

Women aren't the only ones disrobing to (indirectly) delight children with Christmas Day gifts. San Francisco fireman Kevin Kuhn was selected as Mr. San Francisco by a national firefighter calendar, where he posed in front of some Victorian houses with his not-so-Victorian bare chest to be Mr. December.

Sex sells in this city, but so does vice and rock 'n' roll. This year, the Fire Fighters' Toy Drive includes a poker tournament next Saturday, Dec. 17, with the electrician's union, to which you should bring a toy along with your poker face.

As for tonight, you can show up with a toy donation to see a '80s cover band at the Vin Club. We've heard Santa digs The B-52's. 

Or, if booze if more your thing, you can exchange a toy for a free glass of wine or pint of beer at Stray Bar tonight on Cortland. The bar hopes to collect "car loads" of toys to deliver to the fire station on Folsom Street.

Does Santa do bondage, too?

  • 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.'"
