Friday 10/9

‘Battle of the Decades’ DJ Party

Every Friday from 6-10PM, the Monroe Club in North Beach – voted best happy hour in San Francisco – hosts a ‘Battle of the Decades‘ DJ party. Every hour is a different decade, with drink prices to match: $1 for ’70s hour, $2 drinks for ’80s hour, and so on. If the cheap drinks, outdoor patio, and dance floors still aren’t enough to entice you, we’re pretty sure the mouth-watering $2 street tacos – served all night long – just might.

When: Friday, October 9, 2015, 6PM to 10PM

Tickets: FREE when you ‘like’ the club on Facebook (otherwise, there’s a $3 cover),_San_Francisco#/media/File:San_Francisco_Womens_Building.jpg
