Great Day/Night Out in Bay Area – Zoe Fitzgerald Carter & Sugartown


I was on my way home Thursday after a great day “over the hill.” Early morning latte at Cafe Trieste in North Beach, then breakfast at Bette’s diner, Berkeley with bookpals Kevin & Elise, then across bridge again, go swimming in warm (for us, 60+ degrees) water in Aquatic Park cove, sauna at South End Rowing Club, then Irish coffee across street at Buena Vista cafe (hey, the place is so great, all the tourists don’t even spoil it), meet a fellow SFO native, we talk about the city we still love, and he buys my drink. Great dinner at Fiorella “neighborhood Italian” restaurant. THEN, I stop in at 19 Broadway bar in Fairfax on the way home and heard this incredible band — Sugartown, fronted by Zoe Fitzgerald Carter. And there were like 5 people in the bar. Couldn’t believe it, both the excellence of this band and the fact that no one was there. Sheesh!

If you’ve read this blog before, you may know I’m prone to over-enthusiasm, can’t help it.

That said, I think this is a world-class band, and as far as I can tell, undiscovered.

I had 3 shots of Jack Daniels while sitting at a table in front, only one other person there. Couldn’t believe my luck.
