Reverend Bertie P waxes philosophical

But there's a connection to the living at EpiscoDisco, too. "San Francisco nightlife can be a bit clique-y," says Pearson, a master of tart understatement. "Sometimes if you walk up to a group of people and just start talking to them, they look at you like you're insane. That doesn't happen here. Isn't that great?"
