Not sorry I missed it

Personally, I’d prefer a bar without so much rat in it:

How it went, as reported in the nation’s rat capital [warning: autostart video]:

New Yorkers: Ever wonder what you could do to increase the number of rats in your life? Are rat-infested city streets, apartments and parks NOT enough?

Well, since it’s illegal to drink alcohol in your favorite vermin-inundated subway stations, this San Francisco pop-up bar is made for those who feel the need to party with rats.

Our sister station KGO-TV visisted the rat-friendly pop-up bar, which is open at The San Francisco Dungeon June 13, 14, and 15.

Guests can hold, play, and cuddle with domesticated rats from Ratical Rodent Rescue in Vallejo.

And we tip our hat to the rodent rescuers, who by now have saved innumerable rats from the hellscape that is the San Francisco street grid.

    This is the gritty reboot version of the Japanese cat cafes. I guess we are all living in gritty reboot world now.

    (I presume these are domesticated or “fancy” rats, and not ones likely to be spreading stuff like plague. But still. I know people have rats as pets and love them, but having dealt with a packrat infestation in my garage at one point….I’m sorry, I just gotta be speciesist here)

    Making a virtue out of the nobody-can-be-bothered-to-remedy. Next somebody will open a place in San Francisco with human waste on the floors.

    Gin and bubonic.

    (After so much time I’d be shocked if the joke wasn’t already made, but just in case, I gots ya fam.)
