Clusterfest, the mega comedy festival that launched last year in San Francisco, is coming back for a second year, and it’s bringing back some of the fun food and dining experiences that made it a success. That includes Paddy’s Pub, the rough-around-the-edges restaurant from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, known for its “rum ham” and “beef & beer.”
To celebrate, there’s a party going down in the Haight at Milk Bar’s It’s Always Sunny trivia night at 1840 Haight St. Starting at 7:30 p.m. there’ll be giveaways, Paddy’s merchandise, and a Flipadelphia (flip cup) tournament. There’s also the opportunity to win tickets to the comedy festival (which ain’t cheap).
It’s still unclear which of the other popular food-related activations from last year will return, though South Park’s food court seems like a likely option; last year’s full-scale reproduction included a “small-town food court” with Tweek Bros Coffee, Casa Bonita, Les Bos, Raisins, and Whistlin’ Willy’s Pizza Gulch; a “manbearpig roast”; and a chili con carnival with “culinary delights from around the Bay Area.”
Last year’s culinary lineup also included live demos from SF chefs like Sarah and Evan Rich (Rich Table), Matthew Accarrino (SPQR), Brandon Jew (Mister Jiu’s), and Top Chef’s Melissa King, and food from Bay Area food vendors, like Locol, Humphry Slocombe, and Itani Ramen.
One thing that’s certain, however, is the presence of comedy headliners like Amy Schumer, John Mulaney, and Tiffany Haddish will be joined by musical guests like Action Bronson, Third Eye Blind, and Wu-Tang Clan.
Single day tickets are $99 and go on sale April 19; VIP tickets are $249.50 per day; three-day GA are $274.50; three-day VIP packages are $599.50 and up. The festival takes place at San Francisco at Civic Center Plaza and Bill Graham Civic Auditorium from Friday, June 1 to Sunday, June 3, 2018
