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.

Western Addition: Cherryland Sukiyaki (Japanese and American), 1650 Post St., sake and beer

Hansel Mieth and Otto Hagel—Streets of San Francisco, 1942

(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 Saying

Wednesday, 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 DungeonHamburg DungeonAmsterdam Dungeon, the Blackpool Tower Dungeon, the Edinburgh Dungeon, the London Dungeon, the York DungeonWarwick Castle and now San Francisco.

Beth Spotswood of SFGate says she “screamed bloody murder.

And here’s Annie Sciacca’s take

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!

Turns Out That Skateboarding IS a Crime, or At Least It Is When You Turn Bush Street Into Pine Street

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Like this fellow heading outbound down Nob Hill on Bush, which of course is a one-way inbound route.

Didn’t we just lose a skateboarder not too long ago on this very same hill? I think so.

I can recall getting all lost in the supermarket or department store, but flying solo on the mean Streets of San Francisco at this young age, well, that’s that’s adventurous…
