Worse than Ben Lyons - Harry Denton

Harry Denton's Starlight Room is a hip/shmancy nightclub in San Francisco at the top of the Sir Francis Drake hotel on Union Square, although in their defense, I hear that they don't have a dress code and have a regular drag queen show.

Anyway, a friend recently forwarded me an article in the San Francisco Chronicle about cheap dining options (cheap by SF standards, anyway), which included this line:

Harry Denton's Starlight Room launches a new monthly dance party tonight ($10, 9 p.m.-2 a.m.) with DJs and drink specials, including the "Recession" - Pabst Blue Ribbon in a brown paper bag ($4)

That's right, for only $14 you can have a "recession" inspired beer! Which assumes, of course, you have not been laid off and are willing to pony up this kind of money rather than the less than one dollar per PBR you can get at Safeway, where a 12 pack goes for $7.50.

Way to show that you are down with the little guy, Harry Denton.
