Are you sitting at your desk at work, trying to figure out some Friday night plans besides shuffling home and watching college basketball with your cats? Or, do you have plans for later in the evening, but you have a little time to kill between the end of your workday and the start of your party night?
Then you should head over to North Beach. Why? My wife’s running the Rock ‘n’ Roll 1/2 Marathon in San Diego with some friends for Team in Training, and to raise money the ladies are putting on the “Raffle Riot” this evening. Prizes and drinks = can’t lose.
Oh, but wait — you never win anything. You’re boycotting Cracker Jack because the last time you bought a bag it was prize-less. (Unless you ate the prize. It happens.)
But with so many prizes available, you really should try and make it. Here are the details:
Time: 6-9 pm
Location: Northstar Cafe in North Beach! (Good Yelp reviews, for those who pay attention)
Cover: $10 — includes happy hour pricing, 1 raffle ticket (all proceeds go to cancer research)
Plus: Additional raffle tickets: 2 for $5, 5 for $10
Description: Please come out, enjoy happy hour prices on drinks until 9pm AND participate in our raffle! We’ve gotten all kinds of great gift donations, from spa packages and jewelry to restaurant certificates and alcohol! Your $10 donation gets you started with 1 raffle ticket, but you’ll probably be persuaded to increase your odds once you see the full list of prizes! (Facebook Page)
