Yea, you know what, Geno's IS better than Pat's, as I discovered during Kanan Across America ( http://KananAcrossAmer...). I think the key, however, is to not eat your cheesesteak right away, you have to let some time pass so that the liquidy cheese whiz turns solid bonding the meat together. Pro-Tip: Have fun ordering in other languages! :P

I think even if you have been there during the day, at night it is a completely different experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the exhibit during the day but was surprised that for some reason, it looked cooler at night despite having relatively the same lighting. One perk is that you don't have to deal with kids since it is 21 and over and people who are generally unaware of you standing behind them in front of an exhibit waiting for them to leave as it typically is the case during the day. I actually didn't think that the drinks were that overpriced because at a night club a typical mixed drink or shot is $8 and that's exactly what they were serving more or less (but of course the quality of alcohol was ... debatable). They were also pretty rude about not letting people in the line for the rainforest exhibit after 7:30 PM even though outside it says 8:00 PM was the deadline so that was somewhat of a disappointment. I wouldn't come here to visit the museum necessarily because you really don't have time to see everything, but if you were here to enjoy the night it's definitely a spectacular experience filled with live music, great DJs, alcohol and cooking demonstrations full of great food and useful learning resources.

I went to Ruby Skye last Thursday for the House of Soul concert and I must admit i was impressed. The layout of the club is by far the best I've seen but since I don't do the whole clubbing thing, there are probably better venues out there. This review is really for the House of Soul but nonetheless, organizers chose a great place to hold the event. As for the concert, it was straight up OFF DA HOOK! Good-sized crowd, plenty of beautiful ladies, not too many Hoodrats, and most importantly Raphael Saadiq was absolutely unbelievable. I have been a huge fan of his music and it was really nice to actually see him in person for the first time performing songs from his new album and classics from way back. The crowd went crazy when he performed "Still RAy"..... man i love that song. It was also cool to hear him give a shot-out to his hometown, East Oakland, being from Town myself, it felt good to know that such a wonderful artist made it through such adversity to be where he is at now. The only negatives from the night was the wait to get inside, doors were suppose to be open by 7:30 but in actuality, people didn't start entering until 8:20 which was all bad for all the scantily-dressed women waiting outside in the cold. To kill time, myself including people we met in line would take turns and go to the bar across the street and take shots! Also, the concert ended at 1:15am and so our car was locked in the Ellis and 0'Farrell Garage, with a $50 charge on top of the hourly rate to get it out! Luckily there was some cool garage employee who let us retrieve our car for just the hourly rate. The House of Soul, it's good thing.
