• As announced two weeks ago, tomorrow is Koko Cocktails last business day. So you only have two nights to still enjoy your favorite neighborhood bar, or if for some inexplicable reason you’ve never been there, well, now’s the time before it’s too late and Koko goes Hi Lo (hopefully)!

    Tonight is their last super-popular Bourbon & Bacon from 5 to 9pm. From their Facebook event page:

    It’s been a great ride, but the rollercoaster is coming to an end!
    This Friday, July 29th we invite you to kick off the weekend one last time with some bourbon and bacon!

    …Here’s how it works:
    Order any bourbon (or any other american whiskey) from the Koko’s extensive list and you’ll receive a side of thick sliced applewood smoked bacon cooked that morning!
    So whether you are sticking with the $6 Maker’s Mark, trying out an $8 Four Roses Small Batch or splurging for the $18 Pappy Van Winkle 20yr, you’ll be pairing it with a delicious slice of perfection. Taste all the familiar nuances separately, or drop it in and make a southern soup on the spot!

    Resident DJ KEYBUMPS will be serving up blues, funk & punk from 6 – 9 as well….
    Come and get it, and get there early…..first come first serve til the last piece is gone!
    and don’t forget about our other happy hour specials like:
    $2 PBR & Modelo
    $3 Draft Beers
    $4 Well Drinks

    So go there early, as it’s a first come first served baconfest!

  • Then tomorrow, before Koko’s big farewell party, they’ll be hosting their last Tenderloin Reading Series event from 6 to 8pm. And in between the readings by a great line-up of contributors, they’re asking people (you!) to come up and share stories about Koko’s:

    If you’ve been a regular, a friend, a weekend warrior, an occasional commiserater, or had any kind of meaningful experience at Koko’s in it’s 3 plus years, we want you to share it. It could be a poem, a story, a song, a two sentence recollection, a passing thought, something that moved you about Koko or the people who have kept it afloat, WE WANT YOU TO SHARE IT.

  • Tomorrow’s also Hooker’s Sweet Treats first anniversary party (yes, it’s been already a year since they opened), from 6 to 9pm. They’ll be celebrating with their first art exhibition, featuring Tenderloin-based artist Hollis Rhodes.
