To clarify:

Now here’s what the gov’mint has to say on the topic:

So you might think that Travis talks out of his asphalt or that he really spreads a lot of the bituminous around or that UBER is garbage operation, but aside from that, help me out here Gentle Reader – can just anybody get a bad-ass looking metal tab from our DMV?

I gots to know.

What the New “Lucky Strike” Upscale Bowling Lounge in SoMA Looks Like, Now That It’s Open

Friday, September 21st, 2012

It looks like this:

Click to expand

Quite a lot of stuff going on in that shot, huh?

I hadn’t seen the place since it opened up in March 2012.

This is what things look like back then:

The thing about Lucky Strike at 200 King near 4th Street is that’s it’s not like any bowling alley you’ve ever seen. Call it a “gastropub-ish funhouse” or an “upscale bowling lounge” instead.

Get the deets here and now let’s take a look.

Exterior at 200 King:

L.S. on the left, AT&T Park on the right, kitty-corner:

And the CalTrain station is to the right as you look outward:

Here’s the main bar and restaurant seating area. The idea of the communal tables on the left is to have them at Goldilocks height, not too low and not too high, to allow mixing and conversation betwixt those sitting and those standing.

OMG, this place is bigger than I thought it would be.

Moving on to the Einstein Room, with billiards and other diversions to entertain your brain:

But lets go further in, let’s go bowling:

Shoes shoes shoes!

On the way to the lanes:

I don’t know what this is:

Here we go, here are some of the lanes:

The main bowling area will have art all around, made by innumerable local artists. Here are some Obey Giants from Shepard Fairey, who used to be local.

Moving on past the Lebowski Wall(!) to…

…the Green Room, your own private party space with your own private lanes! OMG.

Can you imagine what kind of large, rich, youthful companies have already made reservations to rent out the Green Room and portions of the main bar area? Oh yes you can, give a guess and you’ll be correct. Anyway, here are the special Green Room lanes, one of which is named in honor of Brian Wilson, a part-owner.

In short, Lucky Strike is going to be awesome.

See you Friday!

Opening of San Francisco’s Classiest New Steakhouse, the Penthouse Club, Covered by Our Classiest News Station, KRON-TV

Friday, March 16th, 2012

I think that’s Vicki Liviakis* doing a stand-up** in front of the VIP line last night at the Grand Opening of our brand-new San Francisco PENTHOUSE CLUB & Steakhouse.

Looked like kind of a sausage-fest, actually:

Click to expand

But, oh, the reviews are in, already. Let’s hear from from the “Yelp Elite” cognoscente:

“My boyfriend got the 28-day dry aged bone-in ribeye with chimichurri sauce and I got the grass fed filet mignon with shallot confit and sauce Diane. We were both getting full at this point, but not full enough to not devour both of these beef dishes. The chimichurri sauce was the best we have ever had and really enhanced the juicy ribeye. My filet mignon was tasty and rich and the shallot confit added a nice sweet touch to the dish. We had the Jordan Cab with the meat dishes.

“This was one of the best food experiences I have had in a long time! Every single dish was eaten in its entirety and the bits were scraped off the plate with our forks. I would have licked the plate had I been at home. Executive Chef Mike Ellis has created an amazing and versatile menu that is guaranteed to please anyone’s palate.”

O.K. then.

Bon Courage, San Francisco PENTHOUSE CLUB & Steakhouse!

*At first, I thought she might have been the talent, you know, coming out of the limo. (That’s a compliment, I suppose…)

**I can’t recall ever seeing a real live person holding a KRON 4*** video camera, cause, you know, usually a tripod does the job. That’s the “VJ” concept. 

***If I were in charge of KRON, I’d apply to the FCC to change the name to KORN**** and then I’d beg NBC for an affiliate contract, you know, so it’d be like the old days. That would improve ratings 150% overnight, I’d wager.

****And actually, it would have a Cyrillic R, you know, like this: KoЯn-TV

(Uh, will there really be bachelorette parties here, for real? Only time will tell…)

All the deets:

The Penthouse Club and Steakhouse, the much-anticipated new luxury gentlemen’s club in San Franciscowill host its Grand Opening celebration March 15-17, 2012 with gorgeous guest stars from the pages of Penthouse Magazine. Located at 412 Broadway in the historic North Beach district, the 15,000 square foot space has received multimillion dollar renovation to create a San Francisco adult entertainment venue of unparalleled style and elegance in the city.

In addition to the captivating Penthouse Key Girls, the Grand Opening night on Thursday, March 15 will feature special guest appearances by Penthouse Magazine’s 2012 Pet of the Year, the incomparable Miss Jenna Rose, and the sensational Miss Sabrina Maree, Penthouse Pet for December 2010.

The moment guests step into the sleek black granite foyer of The Penthouse Club and Steakhouse, they’ll be dazzled by the opulent interior created by internationally acclaimed nightclub designer David Chesal. As they’re ushered past a glowing 20’ video wall into the main showroom downstairs, the sweeping vista includes two stages, two levels of seating, an expansive bar and the largest Champagne Display in Northern California. They’ll also have a glimpse of the entertainment going on above through a unique keyhole ceiling and cantilevered glass stage.

The rich, comfortable interior is enhanced by the most awe-inspiring and technically advanced LED lighting available. Upstairs is yet another stage, an intimate 40-seat dining room with curtained booths, a private area for groups and bachelor/bachelorette parties, as well as deluxe Champagne rooms and exclusive VIP areas.

Independently owned and operated, The Penthouse Club and Steakhouse will be open 7 days a week. Serving lunch and dinner, guests will be able to enjoy premium spirits and rare reserve wines, and select from the tempting classic American steakhouse menu. The 4-star fine dining will be available throughout the entire venue.
