Our Unique RUSSIA HOUSE Restaurant/Bar is Now Closed? Oh Well – Here’s What You Missed Out On

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Well, the curtains are gone so this icon is now a see through building, news to me.

Otherwise, the place looks the same:

Read on, for the memories – from a half-decade ago:

“No, not that Russia House, written by John le Carré and starring Sean Connery and Michelle Pfeiffer. And not that one either.

It’s this one, the restaurant at 2011 Bayshore Blvd. in freeway-close Visi Valley. Would you be brave enough to check it out after reading what the Yelpers have to say and seeing that even our municipal government won’t venture foot in there?

Comes now bold Michael Procopio who brought a brace of his “girls” down there to check things out for Bay Area Bites.

Read all about it.

Neon, fur, and vodka – who could ask for anything more?

It seems like Russia House is great place to go, if only to watch a party from another culture. (In Russia, Party watch you!)

Check it out, if you want.”

Know Your Wild Animals of the East Bay: It’s Not a Rat, It’s a Muskrat – Video from Peregrinating David Cruz

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

First check out this photo from David Cruz, who’s Everywhere You Want To Be.

Almost cute, huh?

But then check out these fun facts, and the video below, which shows how rat-like it is.

-Muskrats are large rodents that always live near water. They have thick brown fur and a long, furless, scaly tail. They can grow up to two feet long (with tail). Their rear feet are webbed for swimming, and their eyes and ears are very small.
-Muskrats live in marshes, or alongside ponds, lakes, rivers, and streams.
-They could stay underwater for 15 min
-People often kill Muskrats for their fur.
-Muskrats are very important as marsh managers, removing extra plants and making sure waterways are clear. (http://www.fcps.edu/islandcreekes/ecology/muskrat.htm)

Keep up the great work, DC!

Wow, the WillieBrownGavinNewsomEdLee-Approved Corrupt Twitterloin Never Looked So Good – “You Stay Classy!”

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

Wow, this one has it all – MUNI’s aqua blue DC Transit #1076, these green Market Street bike lanes, and the Furniture Mart Building, whose former owner created the Twitterloin with a little help from King Willie II, Gavin Newsom.

Of course, King Willie I, the original, is taking credit for the corrupt Twitterloin as well, as is King Willie III, Ed Lee.

A fantastic capture from Nick Fisher:

Look at dude in Civic Center.

His hat isn’t necessarily Russian, but that red star atop oak clusters means something, right Komrade?

The Famous Brown Twins are Still on the Prowl in San Francisco

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

Well here they are, Marian and Vivian (or Vivan and Marian) Brown, the San Francisco Twins. They’re still on patrol in Union Square after all these years.

This duo was recently spied on Stockton Street betwixt Geary and Post, right in front of the new Gucci store. The gigantic ad they’re walking in front of has seen better days, as you can tell by the swaths of white paint. 

Those darn graffiti artists are everywhere, it seems.

What’s Up with that Mysterious Russia House Place in Southern San Francisco?

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

No, not that Russia House, written by John le Carré and starring Sean Connery and Michelle Pfeiffer. And not that one either.

It’s this one, the restaurant at 2011 Bayshore Blvd. in freeway-close Visi Valley. Would you be brave enough to check it out after reading what the Yelpers have to say and seeing that even our municipal government won’t venture foot in there?
