“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!

Media Smackdown: National Aviation Journalist vs. ABC7KGOTV’s Michael Finney on the “Trapped 8 Days at SFO” Bit

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Uh oh, I smell trouble brewing after this recent bit from the Bay Area’s Michael Finney.

Check it:

“…a loyal reader sent a link to what ABC seven-on-your-side reporter Michael Finney  in San Francisco thinks is news, a 2 minute plus tear-jerker of a story about Terri Weissinger, who made a home for herself in the San Francisco Airport in April.”

The battle is now well and truly joined:

Mr. seven-on-her-side, Finney had the nerve (reporters are very nervy, busted!) to call the airline for a response as if Ms. Weissinger’s inability to pay for the services of an airline to take her and her stuff from A to B was worthy of a response from the airline and got a somewhat gracious,  “We have apologized for her experience but cannot refund her ticket.” Stuck in the airport because of baggage fees, is the characterization of the reporter. She wasn’t stuck in the airport because of baggage fees, she was stuck in the airport because while she certainly looks like an adult, she was as ill-informed and as helpless as a child.”

This is what the lecture on “Aviation Reporting 101″ looks like:

Can’t we all get along?
