Brace Yourselves This Thursday: On 10-21, at 10:21 AM, Sirens Will Blare for the Great CA ShakeOut Earthquake DrillTuesday, October 19th, 2010
You know what Mad Men’s Don Draper would say about this Thursday’s Great California ShakeOut Earthquake Drill? He’d say that if it was really all that great, then you wouldn’t need to have the word “great” in the name.

This was the scene in the Financial District yesterday as a woodburning stove at the historic Tadich Grill went all haywire and started a smoky fire at 11:00 AM. (Mas o menos, you know it was about a minute either way from 11:00 AM when people started calling 911, certainly not “11:21 AM,” but oh well.)
Check it at news outlet SFist. But, what’s this? The Tadich is re-opening today at 11:00 AM? Well toute le monde will probably show up for lunch based upon the free advertising the fire provided. (Just like at the R&G Lounge after St. Anthony Bourdain’s recent visit. It pays to get free advertising, non?)
It was hard to tell at first how big this fire would get:
Here’s a close-up through some tinted windows showing the flue fire looking more like a smokeless Olympic Flame:
And here the interior après le feu. Not bad, huh?
…the Tadich should be open for business again soon.
Good luck Tadich Grill!
