whichever tweeter looks the hottest in their profile picture one tweeter totally at random and hook 'em up with a free ticket for them and a date (ooo! Hot date!). Thursday, August 8th Free DJ'd, in-store party at Amoeba? Check! Saturday, August 10th Broke-Ass Stuart found a party at Showdown called "The Sh*t Show" with a free beer with cover, $1 beers after, and free tacos/hot dogs as long as they last, and it's all presented by F*** Off. We sh*t you not. Or hit up the 49ers Fan Fest at Candlestick Park. Sunday, August 11th If you like just absurd amounts of spit-fired meat, you should go to Cochon Heritage Fire at the Charles Krug Winery, where, among other things, the chef from Goose and Gander will be roasting a 120lb sturgeon and making chicharrones from the skin. Mmmmmm. WHERE ARE MY DRAGON (boats)?! They're at Lake Merritt in a crazy dragon boat competish, of course.
