OMG, You Gotta Go See Teatro Zinzanni Before It Leaves Us to Make Way for that Money-Losing America’s Cup 2013

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

Here’s how you know when a relationship over, when your supposed beau says something like:

“I’d be happy to introduce you to other men not in this immediate area, or facilitate a conversation with men in the City, or perhaps a matchmaking service. I’ll email you their phone number or something.”

That’s it, it’s over, baby. HJNTIY.

So imagine how the hard-working people at highly-rated Teatro Zinzanni feel about their coming eviction to make way for the NASCAR-esque, tradition-be-damned America’s Cup 2013, aka Larry Ellison’s boat race.

Here’s what the Port of San Francisco is saying about the sitch:

We’d be happy to show them locations that are not in this immediate area, or facilitate a conversation with other city departments or commercial real estate agents.”

Or, in other words, GO TO HELL.

Anyway, put Teatro Zinzanni at the top of your Bucket List right now, before it goes away.

Ooh, backstage:

Ooh, bobbles!

To sum up:

Boo, America’s Cup Eurotrash

Yay, Teatro Zinzanni

    *Man, that’s a high Yelp rating considering the large number of Yelpers (300+) who’ve posted. That’s right up there with all those Brazilian wax places, you know, the ones with owners who consider a four-star review an extreme insult.
