He’ll discuss the Tenderloin’s past (before all the fancy pastry shops popped up) in conversation with Randy Shaw.
March 8, 8 PM – 10 PM
Lost Weekend Video
Fun fact: it’s been 20 years since Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was on the air. Before that sinks in, head down to Lost Weekend Video for some chillin’ out, maxin’, and relaxin’ all cool. Comics will put on the show, mute it, then act out the scenes making them better than they ever were. There will be free pizza, prizes, and maybe even one or two Carlton dances.
