One of the coolest things that I found about San Francisco was the Brainwash Cafe. Sure it doesn’t look like much from the outside, but you really need to give it a shot.
What makes it one of the best ideas ever? It’s a laundromat… it’s a cafe (with a liquor license)… it’s an arcade (okay only 3 pinball machines… and it’s a concert hall (as long as your band can fit on a 6′ x 4′ stage).
Everything is reasonably priced as well. If you get there from 4-7PM during the work week, they have $1 Pabst on draft. They’ll even give you $1 off the food (or a free beer) if you are there to do laundry. My friend commented that it must be the best place in the world to pick up women. I imagine it would be.
On the night that we went, Everyday Jones was the entertainment. They totally rocked and I even got to pull Alissa’s braid. Even though Energy Gal (my fiance) will kill me, I’m going to go out and say that she was super attractive. If you get a chance check them out.
