This week is Lesbian Visibility Week. However, while San Francisco has plenty of all-encompassing queer bars—designated safe spaces for folks in the LGBTQ+ community—there are very few geared specifically toward women seeking other women. Jolene’s is one of the last of its kind in the city and one of a dwindling number nationwide. Call shots, drink shots and show your support for Jolene’s this Thursday at the Mission District bar’s Queer Pool Tournament. Pool sharks will play for a $50 bar tab, a trophy and “mad bragging rights,” plus a shoutout on the bar’s Instagram. Eight slots are open and tickets are $10.

Jolene’s, 2700 16th St.
