Scenes from Opening Night at Tikva Records

The Tikva Records pop-up shop opened on Mission Street last night, celebrating the event with a lovely opening party. Its a cool little venue, with a record store and listening area up front, a small room for viewing videos, and a cozy room in back for kibitzing.

They also defied the old cliche about Jewish weddings, providing both tasty food and ample drink for the guests:

There’s a full calendar of events lined up for the month, but be sure to get tickets in advance if any are of interest, because most will sell out. Or just drop by during the day for a listen. What you’ll find inside may come as quite a surprise:

BONUS UPDATE: It’s more than just a pretty cover. “Connie Francis Sings Jewish Favorites” is available on Spotify, in case you were wondering what it, you know, actually sounds like.

    Not sure which cliche you’re referring to here. In my experience, Jewish weddings are lavish, with tons of food and plenty to drink.

    we’re heading down to Tikva tonight to check out Steve Berlin!

    • The old saw — decades out of date, no doubt, but still — is that Christian weddings had lots to drink but crappy food; Jewish weddings had great food but nothing to drink.

  2. Many Jewish weddings are catered by kosher caters which are notorious for bad food. Even orthodox folks would dread dinner after dancing. I think they’ve gotten alot better over the past 10 years. Mini gefilte fish, anyone?
