Start your weekend right by joining Quintin Mecke -- the SF Bay Guardian's first choice endorsement for Mayor -- for happy hour at campaign headquarters. Drop by on your way home from work, or on your way out later in the evening. We'll be partying until 9ish, followed by a pub crawl...
Four reasons YOU SHOULD COME:
1) The Tamale Lady (Virginia), who has endorsed Quintin, will be there with her tamales.
2) The tunes provided by DJ Julian Mocine-McQueen.
3) The libations from Magnolia Brewery.
4) To learn more about Quintin, his campaign, and how you can get involved!
