Verdi Club Dinner Dance
For more than eight decades, The Verdi Club Dinner has prevailed as the perfect amalgamation of delicious dinner, socializing, and dancing. A unique cross-generational affair features a multi-course meal prepared by Chef Sean Gawel with the best dance bands in the Bay Area. This is the most amazing date in town!
The Woodchopper’s Ball, San Francisco’s swing hot spot, is a weekly Tuesday night swing dance event held at the historic Verdi Club in San Francisco’s Mission district.
Named after the classic 1939 swing tune by the Woody Herman Orchestra, the Woodchopper’s Ball features monthly classes, a full bar (21+ only), and a live music dance party with a drop-in lesson and the largest variety of live swing dance music in town! Brought to you by Hep Jen and Ken Watanabe, long-time regular instructors and organizers at San Francisco’s Lindy in the Park.
For almost 13 years now, Bawdy Storytelling has featured true stories of sex, kink, body image, gender and more to build community, educate, entertain, and bring people together. We do regular live storytelling events in multiple cities, and there are plenty of ways to get Bawdy: Our Podcast and YouTube channel are fantastic ways to get your Bawdy fix, wherever you are.
But there’s nothing like our live events that feature an eclectic mix of authors, poets, comedians and actors – along with real people just like you – sharing their (true) adventures in around ten minutes or less. Storytellers submit their material online for this curated show, and each month’s performers are chosen for their panache and sense of (mis)adventure.
Sexual folklorist Dixie De La Tour curates submitted stories, then works with experienced and first-time storytellers to create a one-of-a-kind evening for each and every Bawdy. Her coaching superpowers tease out surprisingly powerful stories of sex, kink or gender. Then at showtime, Dixie coaches the audience, too – creating an emotionally supportive, unintimidating, and sex-positive atmosphere that’s unique, engaging and fun. Add connecting games (like the ever-popular Bang-O) and you have a show that’ll be your new favorite social event EVER.
Come to a live show and meet new, open-minded people who will change your life. Before you know it, you’ll be wanting to share your stories, too.
