Culture: The Holiday After-Shopping Party

by Stephanie Block

’Twas two weeks before Christmas, and wouldn’t you know?
The Fillmore Street merchants were planning their show.
Jazz musicians were diggin’ it, and tuning their pipes,
While the boulevard’s trees got dressed with white lights.

’Twas two weeks before Christmas, and wouldn’t you know?
The Fillmore Street merchants were planning their show.
Jazz musicians were diggin’ it, and tuning their pipes,
While the boulevard’s trees got dressed with white lights.

All the creatures were stirring, especially Fifi and Jade,
Two glamorous entrants in our fine pet parade.
From Geary to Jackson, shoppers shuttled to and fro,
On shiny cable cars donated by sweet Wells Fargo.

The boutiques stayed open late, for shopping divine,
And our favorites treated everyone to good food and wine.
All the locals thought the idea was righteous and rad,
Except the other streets, who felt empty and sad.

The annual Fillmore Street Stroll, what a holiday delight!
Guaranteed to be an unforgettable day and festive night.
From noon until nine, you can stroll door to door.
Sipping champagne at the spa, and waging silent auction war.

So deck your halls and grab your wallets,
Come party and purchase your whatchamacallits.
Cocktails, tastings, and contests keep you full of surprises.
But only Divas know how to indulge their many vices.

Would the party stop at eight, or would it continue?
We didn’t know- we just needed a venue.
To our rescue, Tango Diva- that Jet Set party force!
Who are hosting an after party at Leticia’s, VIP of course!

Be you nice, that’s fine, but naughty sets the example.
Because sexy Santas will give out free gift bags and samples.
For everyone? Heck no. Just the first two hundred in our crowd.
Fabulous holiday shoppers, Divas savvy and proud.

DETAILS: Saturday, December 11th
Leticia’s Restaurant on the corner of FIllmore and Clay
San Francisco
