Gee
For a great dinner, visit the Firewood Cafe just up the street. The staff is friendly and the food is great, and reasonably priced.

Bisou ... french bistro on Market only one block from the Castro Theater is great for before or after dinner ... they open at 5:30 so before is no problem and after you'll see the hip Castro crowd up close and person. Food and service are really excellent !!

Sadly, while the biggest preshow extravaganza ever for Peaches, a lackluster performance was disconnected and uneven. Uncharacteristically, I only smiled like twice...

Description

Joy to the world! There’s no need to sit on a strange man’s lap in a mall to get what you want for Christmas this year (unless you want to be groped by a stranger, which is always high on our list). Peaches Christ already knows exactly what you want: a not-at-all silent night of goth holiday glory at San Francisco’s historic Castro Theatre! With that in mind she has concocted a ghoul-tide extravaganza like none other: the Peaches Christ Productions world premiere of The Nightmare We Call Christmas, an all-new Antichristmas Pageant featuring a screening of the only holiday movie with skintight leather bodysuits, a fervent appreciation for hair styling and topiary maintenance, and Winona Ryder in a blonde wig: Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands

But that’s not all! Edward Scissorhands is just one of many unforgettable characters Tim Burton has given us, and the spectacular pre-show will pay tribute to a wide range of Burtonian weirdos, featuring guest appearances from the likes of Beetlejuice, Pee-Wee Herman, The Queen Of Hearts, Mrs. Lovett, a chorus of oompah-loompahs, and so much more.  Drink away your holiday misery with cocktails in our North Pole-Dancer Lounge in the Castro Mezzanine.

And make sure to dress up in your gloomiest holiday look for the Holiday Macabre Costume Contest.
