First Thursdays (Part 4) | Divisadero Corridor Art Walk
First Thursdays chronicles the adventures of The Steel Crew as they foray into San Francisco culture on every first Thursday of the month.
Totally unbeknownst to us during all of our college years, the Divisadero Corridor Art Walk occurs at almost all of the street’s bars on First Thursdays. It is a hybrid pub crawl/art reception series. There are 28 bars that participated last Thursday. That’s 28 bars along one street that spans 12 blocks with a different art gallery at each one. So you get to party on a Thursday with the added satisfaction of art appreciation. As long as the artwork doesn’t excite any pent up emotions or daddy issues, then we consider the night a win. We were only able to make it to 3 bars and still thoroughly enjoy ourselves, considering everything else we did before we arrived to Divisadero. But we decided that the art walk was definitely something worth doing again at the next First Thursday.
Our last stop of the night was at the Madrone Art Bar, where they were having 90s night! Many of my peers grew up on 90’s rap and hip hop and you can just taste the nostalgia in the air. I’m talking about Biggie, Tupac, Big Pun, No Limit, and even some Rage Against The Machine. At the end of it, we wondered why we went to the same club every month over and over again as college seniors.
Life can truly be a bubble sometimes…even when you think you’re going out and being exciting.
