New neighborhood bar ‘Dear Mom’ coming soon to 16th and Harrison

It’s part of the Thieves/Blind Cat empire, and will feature fancy but affordable bar food by Chez Spencer. Unfortunately, there won’t be live music like at the space’s previous incarnation, El Rincon, but presumably there will still be dancing and cock (see photo).

Uptown Almanac has a Q&A with one of the owners:

Q: Is it going to be more of a dive like the other Thieves bars or a bit nicer?  I ask because the menu is a little more pricey than other neighborhood bar and grills (namely Bender’s, Gestalt, Zeitgeist, former Ace Cafe)…

A: yes and no. the daily specials are more but the everyday food is all under $10 bucks and we want to keep it that way. What we really want is a place where you can get good food and get loose and act like a fool (the good kind of fool). Like, what’s the difference between a dive bar and a neighborhood bar? Clean bathrooms and napkins on the table. I really want to go to a bar where i can get a $6 plate of grilled asparagus and get drunk and have a spontaneous dance party to The Pointer Sisters. That’s what we’re going for.

Whoa. I usually like to have spontaneous dance parties to the Pointer Sisters at the Silver Crest, but Dear Mom will be much closer to home. Can’t wait!

Oh and follow Dear Mom on Facebook for updates.

    I really want to go to a bar where I can bring my raw asparagus and have it grilled on demand over a fire pit in the center of the dance floor.

    Will someone make my dreams come true?

    Dear Mom,
    Have you sent me a check for rent money yet? I need to go spend it on PBR tallboys at this new bar opening up in the mission.

      P.S. I know I can use the credit card anytime I want, but alot of the bars, I mean businesses are cash only.
      Thanks again,

    Hooray for gentrification and anything else that will bring more yuppies to this neighborhood!

    Gentrification? That place has changed ownership every 5 years or so. It was an adequate Indian Restaurant and lunch spot for a while and later tried being a club at night after the dinner hour. That didn’t work out and it became the cuban/mexican place.

    as a result, a means of drying a semiconductor system by which it really is probable to more stably prevent recontamination by particles is needed.spray dryer. imagine how lovely it is to serve fresh and finely brewed special coffee drinks at the comforts of your own home. the newair ads-500 has a big on/off switch for effortless manages. next, stir in the bisquick mix.
