Ferry Building's Members-Only Techie Club Stumbles in Attempt at Liquor License

Despite the lack of license, Shack15's website is claiming the place is stocked "with multiple full-service bars."

Shack15 currently has one Yelp review (posted Sunday), which begins "Shack 15 is a game-changer." I promptly puked my guts out and did not read any further.

But there is plenty more puke-worthy language on Shack15's website. Calling the club a "place for founders, innovators, and changemakers," Shack15 says it is "where ideas go to breathe" and "a platform for genuine community throughout all stages of the entrepreneurial journey and a home for the exploration of extraordinary ideas."

The target demographic seems more akin to an exploration of how to lose extraordinary amounts of other people's money. But these "founders, innovators, and changemakers" might do well to remember the Museum of Ice Cream liquor license fiasco, where the quasi-museum was denied the license in no small part because they advertised serving alcohol before being granted a license. We'll see if these so-called "changemakers" can get the Board to change their apprehensiveness toward founders who start up shop without securing permits.

    Did peak tech-bro already pass? Did I miss it?

    Although it's confusingly written, the screenshot actually says "multiple full-service bars ... to come" so they're not saying they're serving alcohol yet.
