I hadn’t been to San Francisco in over a year and was excited to see the city again. I’d spent the past two months unsuccessfully hunting for jobs in the SF tech world and had begun to feel like my having an Economics/Accounting degree was about the same as saying that I’d chewed rocks for four years. Fortunately, a company was interested in just such a rock chewer, so I came to San Francisco for an on-site interview.
I love stand-up and have recently had the itch to try it out myself. After a few months of being a wuss, I finally went to an open mic in San Francisco at the Brainwash cafe. The place was v-shaped and split down the middle with a laundromat on one half and a bar on the other (I feel they really missed out on the opportunity to name it ‘Suds’, but maybe that’s too common a laundromat name. Perhaps ‘Sudz’ with a ‘z’ to attract the quirky hipster crowd).
