Foodievents: Early Michael Jackson Tributes

Many folks haven’t sufficiently recovered from the shock of Michael Jackson’s death to organize major tribute events for the King of Pop, but a few are out there, and there’s probably a lot more we haven’t heard about. For now, try these on for size:

• Oakland’s Ruby Room hosts a free Jackson tribute DJ night with “MJ, Motown, Northern Soul, & Old School hip-hop all night long” (well until 2 a.m.).

• The Marina’s Gravity Room will also have a tribute night with a guest DJ. Admission is free if you dress up like the King.

• On Sunday, swing by 330 Ritch, where we hear Ankh Marketing is throwing a Jackson tribute with DJs Mr. E, Ant One. [Via SF Weekly]

• While it’s not exactly at a bar or restaurant, we bet attendees of Saturday night’s candle-light vigil for the King at Church and Duboce (time unknown) will serve as a good launch point to swing by the Mint, just two blocks away, for some Karaoke.
