Not just what the other high school team ain't got for being U.G.L.Y., Alibi's also an opening-tomorrow SOMA rounge (restaurant + lounge!) run by a Yay Area DJ who's worked with Wu-Tang, E-40, and OutKast.
The whole thing's set up to look like a warm, upscale hotel lobby for 21-and-over-ers, with 14000sqft dressed in off-white stone and dark wood trim, three flatscreens you can Tweet to (#super), rentable lockers you can store your personal booze in, and communal tables/lounge seating designed to "enhance mingling". Food's contemporary comfort-leaning, with larger dishes like a 1/2lb Kobe beef burger (w/ applewood-smoked bacon & sharp cheddar on toasted brioche), plus smaller stuff like mac n' cheese (w/ Dungeness crab and truffle) and four types of street-style tacos all grouped under (zoinks!) "Scooby Snacks".
Because Gatorade is waaaay too complicated these days (Prime! Perform! Something else!), quench your thirst way more simply at Alibi's full bar where -- if your rich, generous friend happens to be along for the night -- you can order bottle service, plus five tap beers including Big Daddy, Shock Top, and Hoegaarden, or how the cheerleaders refer to your rival's quad.
