Oddball San Francisco History

Jameson Irish Whiskey will be sponsoring the Oddball San Francisco History event on Thursday, June 27


Flipside and Jameson Irish Whiskey will be hosting the Oddball San Francisco History event on Thursday, June 27 at the historic Old Mint.

The evening will explore the strange history of the city with several speakers including author Theresa Poletti, who will present a brief history of some of the most popular rooftop cocktail lounges such as Top of the Mark. Though many of these sky high lounges are long gone, their influence is still felt throughout the city.

Other speakers will include Joey the Cat, John Law, and Paul Drexler. Topics will range the history of the arcade game Skeeball to infamous San Francisco crooks such as Henry Meiggs and Charles Cora.

Jameson Irish Whiskey and Bruce Cost Ginger Ale will be providing specialty cocktails. Drinks will be available with a $6 donation to the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society.

Food will be provided by Big Chef Tom’s Belly Burgers, Bombzies BBQ, and Wing Wings.
