According to 89-year-old Oakland preacher Harold Camping, the end is near… REALLY NEAR. It’ll start with an earthquake in New Zealand around 6 p.m. PST on Friday and spread through the world according to time zones (you can’t make something like that up). Of course, you probably know this as the billboards are EVERYWHERE in the Bay. Read CBS SF.com’s coverage right here.
So where should you spend your last hours on Earth? Here are some suggestions… Enjoy (and repent)!


Family Stations Inc
290 Hegenberger Rd.,
Oakland, CA 94621
(510)568-6200
Family Stations

If you want to atone (or more accurately party with atheists and heathens), head down to the epicenter of this movement at the Family Radio headquarters in Oakland. And while Harold Camping is encouraging HIS followers to pray with their families at home, you can party with new friends and mischief makers. Party details can be found HERE.


Maddie’s Adoption Center
250 Florida Street
San Francisco, CA 94103
415-522-3500
Maddie’s Adoption Center

If the righteous are taken away, what will happen to their pets? And how can you help? Hopefully the San Francisco SPCA will have some answers. And odds are, they’ll need help in rounding up the beloved animals that were Left Behind.


Ocean Beach
Point Lobos Avenue/Great Highway
San Francisco, CA 94121
(415) 561-4323
Ocean Beach

A pretty obvious place to see what may be your very last sunset. Of course, if the predicted wave of earthquakes DO take place, odds are a tsunami will strike you dead. Best to check it out on Friday or so… and bring water wings just in case.


Grant and Green Saloon
1371 Grant Avenue
San Francisco, CA, 94133
Grant and Green

This Telegraph Hill bar is throwing a free party around 9 p.m. on Friday night for those who want to party away their final hours. And, if there are people ascending, you might get a free drink!


The Tonga Room
950 Mason St
San Francisco, California 94108
(415) 772-5278
The Tonga Room

Seriously, if the world is ending, you’ll probably want alcohol and lots of it. And if you like your alcohol served in coconuts at a bar that rains as a cover band sings, “My Heart Will Go On”, this should be your final destination.


Best Buy
2675 Geary Blvd, Suite 300
San Francisco, CA 94118
415-409-4960
Best Buy

We don’t advocate looting. But some of us could really use a nice flat screen TV. Stealing is a sin, so buy the TV early to watch the destruction from your home.


Gump’s
35 Post Street
San Francisco, California 94108
1-800-766-7628
Gump’s

You know what would go well with that flat screen you totally paid for? A nice, comfortable, expensive couch.
