I don't know who decided that Labor Day is only for full time nine-to-fivers, because the rest of us work our tails of to keep up with the rest of the world. So to all of our service industry friends who do not get the day or night off, we share your pain. The holiday does mean some of our haunts, like the Casbah, Soda Bar and Belly Up, are all closed tonight, but if you must go out, head to Balboa Park. It's been a great season with the new civic organist, Raul Prieto Ramirez, but tonight, the organ will really shine as the Spreckels Organ Pavilion presents a Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin tribute. I'm not exactly sure how they'll put it off, but I'm kind of looking forward to seeing it nonetheless. The best part is that it is totally free and all ages. Be there or be square.
