Cobb’s Comedy Club  915 Columbus Ave./Lombard St., North Beach.  This popular club features live stand-up, plus a full bar and dinner menu.  Dining in guarantees best seating, but all seating is good.  The pre-show dinner menu includes delicious, well-spiced entrees such as achiote-rubbed chicken and grilled halibut.  A cafe menu served during the show includes popcorn shrimp and calamari, crispy Dungeness crab rolls, a focaccia burger, and an ice cream sundae topped with housemade butterscotch and fudge.  This building has been a nightclub since it went up in 1923, and USO shows here wowed World War II troops with big band music.
