Here’s your quick guide for what’s brewing in the neighborhood:
Comedy x Pop Up Food at Starline Social Club is exactly what it sounds like. Every Monday, “comedians Irene Tu and Andrew Orolfo host the best local and nationally touring stand-up comedians in Starline's intimate comedy room.” A rotating lineup of pop up vendors will be sell their delicious fare before every show. Best part? The event is FREE.

They’re screening rooms offer cozy reclaimed seating options and they’re café hosts several Insta-worthy events every week, including Lego & Libations on Mondays and Karaoke on Fridays.
