Building Fire This AM at People’s Cafe and TRUE Clothing on Haight – They’ll be Shut Down for a While

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Get all the deets on this morning’s 5:00 AM structure fire at The People’s Cafe and True in the Upper Haight.

Let’s see here, the aftermath: You’ve got a Honda Accord (see the firefighters gingerly lifting a big old hose off of it (sorry about that, Chief) so the driver can escape the scene?), a noticeably perky news lady, a news producer, a witness/interested party, and a big old firetruck all in front of TRUE and the People’s Cafe during Yet Another Foggy Morning in the Upper Haight, just as you might expect:

The Spookiest Place to be this Halloween is Mel’s Diner on Geary in the Inner Richmond – Surrounded by Burial Grounds

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

San Francisco’s Big Four Cemeteries, Odd Fellows’ (aka Independent Order of Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F.)), Masonic, Laurel Hill, and Calvary, used to surround our  Mel’s Diner on 3355 Geary. Philip Ferrato has the deets and some photos of what these places used to look like.

All the people buried got dug up and sent to Colma by the 1940′s, but the ghosts remain, I’m sure.

Keep that in mind when your noshing on three-star Yelp-rated fare at the Mel’s…

The bulk of the University of San Francisco used to be Masonic Cemetery. See?

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

Well actually, make that Halloween in July, ’cause that’s when these giant skull novelties went on sale at Costco Warehouse 144 in the SoMA.

Christmas comes to Costco, as Scott James points out today, in August. Like clockwork.

Maybe we’ll get an actual Christmas in July next year. Who knows…

New Indiana Jones Movie a Huge Hit at the Castro Theatre

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

There was a time when a big movie like Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull would open at a place like the now-deceased Coronet Theater. But The Castro was doing pretty well  for itself last night with a packed house on the first day of the new Indy.

Bullwhip? (Doesn’t everybody in San Francisco have one already?) Free.

Costco drinking water? $.12 plus $.05 CRV.

Fedora? $29.97 from Lucky Supermarket 

Memories of entertaining the long lines of people waiting to get a good seat? Priceless.

Don’t forget to complete your Indiana Experience by purchasing LEGO Indiana Jones Adventures. All the cool kids are doing it!

So turn up your hearing aid (if you have one, as the Castro Theatre’s sound system seems a tad on the quiet side) and get on out there!
