Conan is here and he’s tossin’ a party!

Conan Celebration So as we all know by now, Conan O’Brien is town all week at the Orpheum. So in celebration of Conan’s visit to SF, NBC 11 (WARNING! Link contains audio for those with sleeping children in the room) is hosting a Conan-themed rally in Justin Herman Plaza on Wednesay, May 2nd. It’s a free lunchtime gig (12-1PM) and will be styled after a variety show similar to “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” with guests, music, and other live performances. Currently, performances are scheduled by “Beach Blanket Babylon” and San Francisco Taiko Dojo. The Gavster has proclaimed May 2nd as “Conan O’Brien Day in San Francisco.” Mayor Newsom and Conan may make a special appearance at the event but the emphasis there is “may” so Caveat Emptor. Tickets to the show, as well as other prizes, will be given away. The tickets they are giving away are VIP tickets so you are guaranteed a seat if you win! All the other shows have been overbooked and it’s first coe first seated so if you do have tickets get there early and if you don’t then get your ass over to Justin Herman on Wednesday and win some! Sara and No Name on Alice radio are giving away tickets during the morning show and NBC 11 News at 11 p.m. every night next week is doing “Conan Catch Phrase” to win tickets. Viewers watch the newscast, listen for the catch phrase and log on to to send them an email with the catch phrase when they hear it. Emailer #11 will win a pair of VIP tickets to the Friday, May 4th show.

Be sure to tune in to check out Conan tooling around our fair city with Bob Sagat in our signature GoCars. Photo credit: Andrew Weinberg/”Late Night”

    I will be there in the hopes of seeing Conan live. Turns out that 86,000 people applied for tickets and there was room for only 5,000. Know anyone with an extra ticket??

    The red foamy hats were a promotion gimmick. Walked by the studio the other day and saw them in a pile in the lobby. I just got the feeling from watching him on TV that college kids had brought it. Maybe I’m gullible, but that’s what it seemed.
