Neighborhood: The Mission
Gig: Comedian, Project Manager, Producer, Facebook Terrorist
What event will we find you at this week? Tuesday the 27th is Rajeev's Big Nite Out!, a night of comedy and music I host/produce once a month at my favorite venue, Amnesia. Starting in April it will be on the 4th Saturday of each month. It's a real labor of love. I'm so involved in keeping it going well I barely have time to enjoy it myself, but seeing happy people is the reward.
SF is... a great city for an artist to find their voice unfettered by aggressive commercial concerns.
Where would you have your last meal on earth? So many good places, but I do love sitting at the counter at Bar Bambino. It just feels right and the food is great.
Where's your go-to date place? A meandering walk around the neighborhood on a nice night is always good place to start.
Where's your secret spot? Behind my right ear.
What do you get obsessive about here in SF? I'm a bit of a clothing junkie. Especially women's clothes. They are much more interesting than men's. Sometimes I get something for a friend, because I know it would look great on her.
What would you change about SF? Add more trash cans, because people's littering habits are a goddamn crying shame around here.
What's next for you in your personal world? I'd like to open a co-op cafe/diner here one day, something that is neighborhood-y and unpretentious like when I was a kid in New York. Have some children, get old, and shoot the shit with the other old farts out front. And, of course, tell jokes.
