“My Girl.” Marvin. Your Monday night.

LOWER PAC HEIGHTS

By Nicole Honchariw

What: Motown Mondays at Madrone (Lower Pac Heights/Divisadero).
When: See above.
It ain’t no fun if:  You don’t wear your dancing shoes.
Cash factor: Light.

Madrone Art Bar on Divisadero offers the best of both worlds: an excuse to drink cheap drinks while also proving you’re “cultural.” The space acts as a gallery in addition to fully stocked watering hole, so you and your date can chomp at the art bit while enjoying your Old Fashioneds. Add another element to the mix and come here on a Monday night, when the space hosts it’s weekly Motown Monday dance party. The eclectic crowd and fun mash-ups will be a cultural experience impossible to find elsewhere in San Francisco, and the people watching alone will provide ample entertainment for you both.

If you want to get some food in your stomach before the drinks start flowing (it is a Monday, after all), you can start the cultural journey by grabbing some of the best barbeque in the Bay Area at 4505 Burgers and BBQNote: We’re not condoning drinking on a school night, but we are condoning breaking routine and enjoying a good boogie.
