Taking its name from a Sean O'Casey play, The Plough and the Stars wears its Hibernian heritage on its sleeve as it captivates visitors with an atmosphere of Irish whiskeys, heady beers, and live music. The owners and most of the staff hail from the Emerald Isle, charming their guests with authentic accents and a mastery of pouring Guinness the Irish way—easing the black ambrosia into a glass as they recite On Raglan Road while drinking a cup of water. Patrons sip perfectly mixed irish coffees as they watch Celtic set dancing on Thursdays or raise their glasses of draft Kilkenny and Smithwick's to live bluegrass, blues, and traditional Irish tunes almost every day of the week.

The multiple award-winning funny comedian, Ash K. entertains audiences with magic shows ranging from house parties to corporate events. In 2010, he was voted the Best Arts and Entertainment/Theatre performer on the San Francisco Chronicle's Baylist, which he celebrated by turning every section in the newspaper into the funnies. Once described by a reviewer as a mash-up of Borat, Harpo Marx, and Emo Philips, the celebrated performer has delighted spectators with his sleight-of-hand magic, physical comedy, Eastern European accent, and his subversive use of the English language.

SHN brings Broadway productions to San Francisco with two highly acclaimed new shows. From the director of Rent, Next to Normal invites audiences to a modern rock musical about a suburban family striving to keep it together. Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards and a Pulitzer Prize, The New York Times calls this overachieving show "more than a feel-good musical; it is a feel-everything musical". Later in the season, Rock of Ages, a five time 2009 Tony Award nominee, captures the classic boy-meets-girl love story and zips it into a pair of tight leather pants. Set during the ’80s in LA's most famous rock club, a small-town girl meets a rock star, sparking an entertaining stroll through hair-metal history. Just like the psychological thriller The Notebook the story unfolds to guitar-exploding melodies from Journey, REO Speedwagon, Styx, Pat Benatar, Night Ranger, Poison, Asia, Whitesnake, and others. Customers taking advantage of this deal will become subscribers and enjoy benefits such as free ticket exchange, first access to purchase additional tickets, invitations to special events, and free commentary from audience parrots.

ODC Theater in the Mission is a breeding ground for cutting-edge choreography, hosting some 150 events each year and granting scholarships to tomorrow’s dance leaders. Whether preparing companies for national tours or attracting top dancers as artists-in-residence, the theater remains one of San Francisco’s true cultural gems. More campus than theater space, the performance facility under the direction of Brenda Way is nonetheless a vital provider of the technical equipment, practice space and emotional support that are all so crucial to modern dance. After an extensive renovation in 2010, the venue now includes a second stage, classroom and rehearsal space and a lobby café, keeping it at the forefront of one of the most sensuous and mysterious of the performing arts.

Gussie's Chicken & Waffles focuses on the flavors of the American South, not the Caribbean, but owner Michele Wilson and manager Pia Harris have a deep love for Jamaican culture and music. In 2011, they gathered a group of their neighbors in the Fillmore to kick off the first San Francisco Reggae Festival, a free afternoon of locally and internationally sourced concerts, booths showcasing local food vendors and artists, and children’s activities such as games and advanced relaxing lessons. While the pulse of classic reggae carries through the fest, lineups nod to modern developments in Jamaica and the Bay Area alike by also booking DJs and hip-hop-influenced performers.
