For the last few years, the Rockit Room was the center of live entertainment in San Francisco's Richmond District, a place in the Avenues where musical stars of all genres could find comfort. Though club recently morphed into Neck of the Woods, it is keeping its tradition of hosting live music and stand-up comedy showcases.

The Comedy Stars Pro Showcase, however, is no open mic night, instead featuring seasoned vets of the San Francisco scene such as Bob Sarlatte (the annual emcee of San Francisco's Comedy Day), Michael Meehan (a comic/painter/sculptor), and Will Durst (who podcasts with former Mayor Willie Brown). Host Danny Dechi claims not only to be a comedian, but also the world's only pencil musician, with no erasers required. Expect astute observations about life in the wonderfully freaky Bay Area and an honest and unflinching dose of political absurdity.

The Comedy Stars Pro Showcase starts at 8 p.m. on Jan. 15 at Neck of the Woods. Admission is $8.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
