Mrs. Gooner and I went down to the Mezzanine nightclub for the San Francisco Bay Guardian Best of the Bay Rock Party so I could pick up my award for “Best Goon Squad”.
The early part of the evening was just for winners, baby! I rubbed shoulders with the best and the brightest of the Bay Area, and sucked down complimentary beers!
Got to converse briefly with Senator Mark Leno, one of the few politicians I still have any respect for, groove to some fabulous freestylin’ by The Freeze, and did I mention the complimentary beers.
Big thanks to Bay Guardian culture editor, Marke B. and writer, Caitlin Donohue, who plucked the Bay Area Gooners from obscurity to be honored in the City Living category’s Editor’s Picks.
This is what a WINNER looks like!
I will be at Maggie McGarry’s Irish Pub in North Beach this Wednesday, April 29th at 11:45AM PST to watch Arsenal FC vs. ManUre in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League Semi-Final.

So play hookey from work, school, or simply shirk whatever obligation you may have, to join me and other members of the Bay Area Gooners to urge on the mighty Gunners!
If recent matches are any indicator, we should have a great group to watch with!
