Drugs, needles, feces and rats, oh my! Experience cocktails at a San Francisco bar while rats crawl around you

From Fox News: San Francisco wants to show you its creepy past by making you drink with live rats.

The San Francisco Dungeon in Fisherman’s Wharf is launching an immersive experience about the City by the Bay’s “weird, twisted, dark” history — and that includes having live rats “scurry all over you” for some reason.

The tourist hot spot known for its interactive tours through history, featuring live actors and thrilling special effects, is opening its Rat Bar as the “next iteration of what the Department of Public Health” will allow, according to a press release.

The Dungeon had previously offered a tour with something called a “Rat Café.”

“Let’s be honest — pastries and coffee were nice and all when we hosted the Rat Café but that was a lot of work. We thought, ‘F it. This time, get drunk, see our show, touch rats and get drunk some more,’” says Matthew Clarkson, regional head of marketing for West Coast Midway Attractions, North America, Merlin Entertainments Group.

After the history lesson, guests are shuffled off to the Rat Bar where they are able to touch and hold live rodents provided by the Ratical Rodent Rescue for 30 minutes.

The strange pop-up will begin June 13 and run through June 15, offering guests a 60-minute “journey into the dark place where live rats run free and the booze flows like water.”

Those who purchase tickets will be given “Ama-RAT-o Sours” made with Amaretto, a citrusy mix and a “rat’s tail” garnish, before being taken on a ride learning about the gold rush, Chinatown gangs, shanghaiing, Alcatraz and, appropriately, the plague.

Rat or San Francisco-enthusiasts will want to buy their tickets fast, however, as the company stated their last rat pop-up sold out in 45 minutes.

People who will actually pay to have rats crawling around them in a Rat Cafe or Rat Bar are certifiably insane. Want to bet they’re all Demonrats, erh, Democrats?

The same question applies to people who vacation in Mexico.

Can you imagine the waiter, “Madam, would you care for a rat turd sandwich?” It’d be really funny if someone let a tom cat loose in there.

Excuse my ignorance, but what exactly is a “rat pop-up”? Some kind of camper? Whatever it is, they are selling fast. So order yours today. Operators are standing by. So, the “progressive answer” (what was the question again?), California, plumbs the depths of degeneracy and stupidity and provides even more evidence that there is no bottom

That’s what happens when there are too many roaches in your toaster.

Rat pop up is when you lift your toilet lid and a rat pops up out of it.

You know you’re in San Francisco when you need a flashlight and a ball bat to go to the toilet.

Apparently the Health Department no longer exists in San Francisco. I’m sure everyone is aware that their new governor is related to Nasty Nancy Pelosi. This is no longer a state, its a Satanic tribal entity. It demands support and does everything it can to reject those who provide the support. These childish little fantasists haven’t fully grasped the idea of disease yet. Our challenge will be keeping all of it confined to California. When they can no longer support their millions of illegal voters and no one will help they may have a problem. Suddenly the “promised land” will… Read more »

`LO…where have you been? I’ve been teaching in Mexifornia for 30 years and it IS a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY where I’m living/working/coming from.

Well, for all intended purposes they cater to four legged rats as well as two [legged] rats.

I can’t help it, but this is as funny as hell! It’s like Zap Comix come to life! I expect R. Crumb to walk into this bar!

Sorry—it’s the college sophomore in me that laughs at truly gross things. smack! smack! There, I’m over it. Too weird!

I think Crumb moved to France because he was disgusted with what the US has become. Glad to see someone else here remembers Zap Comix

Yes, Crumb has been living just outside Paris for some 30 years.

An interesting character, another American original. The movie “Crumb” is a bizarre snapshot of his life but somehow oddly moving. Although a “cartoonist” his art is deep and incisive IMO. His wife, Aline Kominsky, said she always thought he was Jewish because he whines so much

I think people do this because they identify with the rats, like the rats are their “brothers”. That, or else they’re just trying to acclimate the weirdoes into the next bubonic plague coming up.

Maybe a hefty hantavirus outbreak would be helpful for the golden state.
