Sounds Like San Diego: July 13

Bar Pink celebrates its seven year anniversary today -- show up and help out



    The seven year itch; seven years of bad luck; seven deadly sins -- I don't know why we associate the number seven with negativity, especially when seven is such a perfect age for a bar. I remember going to an event about eight years ago at this bar called Dino's, and thinking to myself, "this is a really cool space if someone did the right thing to it." And then a group of friends who'd bartended together for years in OB got together and bought the bar. The Pink Elephant was born, and though they had to change names because of some sleazy nightclub on the east coast throwing their weight around, we would've all probably just used the shorthand of Bar Pink even if they hadn't officially changed the name. Seven is a good year, for sure. It's old enough to be an institution and necessity on nights out, often as the first and last place you hit after a bar crawl through North Park. For bringing cheap drinks, a cool vibe, an open environment that welcomes all types, for booking cool shows and keeping them mostly free, and for being instrumenatal in North Park's renaissance -- tonight, we celebrate Bar Pink.
