March 16, 2009, Mercury Cafe opened. This photo was taken at 7 am, when we first opened our doors. Ten years later, we’re still here. No small feat for a little local, independent cafe. We’ve seen many changes. We’ve been through many changes. So we celebrate.
We’re trying something new.
The last Friday of every month will be our community night where we feature guests–might be political, might be artistic, might be activist, might be all of the above–and people can drop by, enjoy drink and food, and meet the neighbors.
Read below and see what’s happening.
New stuff at the Mercury Cafe…
MERCURY CAFÉ’S MONTHLY COMMUNITY NIGHT
RENT PARTY (Help the cafe pay its bills!)
- Candace Falk, Director of the Emma Goldman Papers Research Project at U.C. Berkeley
- RedBone, International Burlesque Entertainer
- Jerry the Faerie, Bound Together Anarchist Bookstore Collective
- Tab Buckner, Harvey Milk LGBTQ Democratic Club
- Larry-bob Roberts, Smack Dab Queer Open Mic Co-host
- Live Music by the Serendipitous Encounters
What: Emma Goldman and the Politics of Love
When: Friday, September 27, 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.
Where: Mercury Café, 201 Octavia Street, San Francisco
Why: Because “If I can’t dance I don’t want to be part of your revolution,” and Love Rules, (everything else is boring and a lot of hot air and wasted time), which is why we’ll be serving Flora’s homemade organic black beans with Himalayan red rice (for $5, merely) and offering Happy Hour prices on beer. Be there, or suffer the wilting of peaches and the drying of muffins.
Donations at the door to benefit the live music we hope we can muster up…
Mercury Cafe is now open until 8pm Fridays. Great selection of draft beers and some wine. And those tasty sandwiches. And soups. And biscuits. And scones.
Monday – Friday 7am – 5pm
Saturday – Sunday 8am – 5pm
Yes, we have take-out (415-252-7855). Save time and a little money by calling ahead.
