Life on the streets of Frisco:

A modern day warrior
Mean, mean stride
Today’s Tom Sawyer
Mean, mean pride
Though his mind is not for rent
Don’t put him down as arrogant
His reserve, a quiet defense
Riding out the day’s events
The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his eyes are wide
Exit the warrior
Today’s Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the energy you trade
He gets right on to the friction of the day
Take a Look at Japantown in 1942: “Cherryland Sukiyaki (Japanese and American), 1650 Post St., sake and beer”Friday, August 1st, 2014
Oh wow, man. I’m not used to seeing outer Post Street from the pre-Redevelopment era.
(Then the people from SPUR came along with “ideas and action for a better city” to Urban Renewal this place with big, hulking, earthquake-unsafe buildings (“The Mall Has It All!” – that’s what the SPUR people used to say before they changed their name to hide from their legacy) and garages and that’s where we are today.)
Esquire: “For Sukiyaki complete with chopsticks, visit “Cherryland,” where only Japanese food is served.”
“The San Francisco Dungeon” Opens – It’s the Newest and Spookiest Addition to Fisherman’s Wharf – What People Are SayingWednesday, June 25th, 2014
Here it is, the San Francisco Dungeon up at 145 Jefferson St. between Mason and Taylor in Fisherman’s Wharf – it’s the newest and spookiest addition to Fisherman’s Wharf. Check it out. It’s opening Thursday, June 26th, 2014.
And that makes it the ninth Merlin Entertainments Dungeon in the world. The roster: Berlin Dungeon, Hamburg Dungeon, Amsterdam Dungeon, the Blackpool Tower Dungeon, the Edinburgh Dungeon, the London Dungeon, the York Dungeon, Warwick Castle and now San Francisco.
Beth Spotswood of SFGate says she “screamed bloody murder.”
And here’s San Francisco Bay Guardian skeptic / Harvard-boy David Kurlander’s bit. He dropped by last week and wrote a lot about the dungeon. He says, “…the Dungeon transcends a lot of the more toxic elements that drag down other Jeffersonian locales.” I guess that’s a compliment.
And here are the Yelp reviews.
I’m thinking that if you’re part of a fun group and you’re in the mood to have good time, then the SF Dungeon just might be for you.
Here are some scenes:

Nikko, of Shanghai Kelly’s Boat Ride, claims his victims (guests) in the San Francisco Dungeon in San Francisco, California
Underground boat ride? Mmmm… Maybe I’ll make it up there someday. (It seems a lot more appealing than any wax museum, just saying.)
All the deets, after the jump.
See you there!
