RELEASE YOUR INNER WILD CHILD!

 It’s been a long week and if you’re going to do it anywhere, Castro’s the place. Explore the options that make Castro arguably the heart of the city. Learn about aphrodisiacs, the neighborhood, and San Francisco cocktails.  Let go of your worries for a night, you can always be responsible tomorrow.

HIGHLIGHTS: 

  • Hear stories of the LBGQT community of the Castro district while sipping cocktails 
  • Learn the truth about aphrodisiacs while slurping on some oysters
  • Sip on a Mai Tai in the city it originated from 
  • Taste spicy rice cakes from a local favorite fusion joint
  • Soak up the scene while sipping on a Martini 
  • Try a delicious adult rated cookie 
  • See the famous Castro theater and rainbow crosswalk 

Start with a classic aphrodisiac to set the mood: the oyster shooter.  Slurp! We’ll learn the story of the Castro District and how it set the stage for the gay rights movement.  Come as you are, it’s whimsical and welcoming to all. Stroll down Castro Street and see the rainbow-flags, stopping at Castro Theater to learn about the actors who performed there. Try an unusual cookie and indulge your erogenous side as we peek in a store and discuss the Castro underground party scene.

The next stop is a double whammy!  We’ll sample an aphrodisiac everyone knows and loves, while learning the truth behind the legend of aphrodites and what is a true aphrodisiac. Next we will taste another optional classic cocktail we’ll bet you didn’t know was invented in SF! 

Next we spice it up with a delicious little treat at a Korean Californian fusion restaurant, a neighborhood favorite. Here we will see who can handle the heat. Then it’s time to say “bye bye’ with some Mai Tais at our last stop. But if you are not ready to head home, don’t worry by this time, the Castro is just getting fired up.
