Hear true stories of sexual (mis)adventure at this monthly storytelling event, held on the border of the Mission and Potrero Hill. At Bawdy, real people (and the occasional local celebrity) share their true sexual exploits onstage, usually following a theme. Past themes include "unlikeliest places," "sex wonk," and "CraigsLust." Admission to Bawdy will set you back $20 -- and usually includes a raffle for sex toys. Bring a date for this unique night out -- the event’s unofficial tagline is "Bawdy will get you laid!"
Discover your inner scientist while boozing it up at Exploratorium After Dark
Science rules at the recently re-opened Exploratorium, located along the Embarcadero on Pier 15. Every Thursday from 6-9pm, the interactive science & tech museum hosts a themed night of programming. Think discussions with scientists about things like self-propelling kinetic structures. Adults can also play around with hundreds of hands-on exhibits, and crawl through a pitch-black tactile dome... all while enjoying cocktails.
This restaurant/lounge/dance club in SoMa has a bit of everything the neighborhood is known for: good food, a party atmosphere, and unique gender expression. Ideal for a cool night out, AsiaSF features California-Asian cuisine and performers who dance hourly atop a runway bar. There’s also a dance club downstairs.
