I love to travel, dance, hear new music and drink wine...preferably all at the same time :) And if you love music too then you've come to the right place! I run the Bay Area chapter of a nonprofit called #WomenCrush Music, whose mission is dedicated to connecting and educating rising womxn musicians which means I'm well-versed in the local music scene. My favorite types of music are jazz, R&B, hip-hop and electronic. Let me know what kind of genre you're into and I've got a show or three that I can send you to! If you're looking for a great wine bar you're in the right city to get tipsy. Let me help you discover your new favorite joint!

If you love food, you’re in luck! SF is a foodie Mecca. Let me know what you like and I’ll find you the best place in town that serves it! I’m also on top of where the great live music is at: I started a live-music discovery app called Hooplays and earn most of my living as a singer-guitarist and songwriter. My favorite types of music are folk/singer-songwriter, jazz, blues, soul and funk, but I can help you find a great show in any genre. I love to travel and I’ve often found myself wishing I had a local buddy to show me where the good food and music spots were. I’d love to let you in on the best that SF nightlife has to offer!.

Where should I go? What should I do? Yelp and Hooplays.com can help you out if you want to put in the time, but they won’t have all the great shows and hidden gems or be up to date on what’s happening this week. For that, you need a real human local in the know.

Your evening could look like this:

 

Party it up hipster-style in the Mission

Start off just before sunset with rooftop cocktails, tapas and views of the surrounding city. Work up your dinner appetite checking out gorgeous, nearby street murals.

Dine on exquisite mexican fusion food in an art-filled, charming restaurant

Stroll to a European-style live-music cafe and take in some swing music while enjoying a glass of beer, wine, tea or coffee.

Stop at a wine-bar for delicious chocolate flan a la mode.

Feel like partying it up late-night? Head a bar for upbeat live Funk music! Or to a different spot for an Afro-Caribbean dance party! Or yet another spot for Indie rock. So many options!

Relaxing evening strolling through SF neighborhoods, enjoying fantastic food, drinks and lively jazz

Start the evening at a little known local spot to catch the sunset and take in spectacular views of the city. Stroll to dinner in the Castro and enjoy renowned, mouth-watering, Indonesian food.

Take another rambling walk through the historic Castro district on your way to a local jazz club with fantastic, free live music. Enjoy wine, beer or cocktails while you take in the show. Sneak away and end the night with some artisanal ice-cream in charming Cole Valley.

Put down your phone and relax.

Smartphones are essential tools but they’ve stolen some of the serendipity from exploring a place and discovering new things. Skip the online overwhelm along with the tourist traps and bring back the magic by letting a real person who is passionate about the local scene reveal the hidden gems. Tell us what you’re into and we’ll tell you where to go.
