Sensational salsa bar blunder

3286310577_0b4bee77b7_b

Our pal Ticklefight describes a very unique feeling:

Tfw your mostly filled salsa cup somehow slips out of your hand into the salsa bin, becoming 90% submerged, and you look around to see if anyone notices while you fish it out with your filthy hands

Oh dear.

He was the best.

Here’s the official statement from the Madrone/Pop’s family:

11-19-17

It is with great sadness, a heavy heart and a somber spirit that we have to announce the passing of our beloved friend, co-worker, brother and son: Caleb Micah McGehee. Stolen from us at the young age of 30.

His spirit and energy shined so bright and everyone lucky enough to know him will forever be marked by his contagious charisma.

We are all currently struggling with his loss, and out of respect for Caleb’s grieving family and close friends, we ask that instead of asking why, we simply remember a wonderful human being.

We will never get over this loss, we will just learn to live without him in person, while his spirit shines with in each of us who knew him.

We will come together as a family and a community Sunday 11-26-2017 for a celebration of his short-lived life. Details forthcoming.

Please feel free share photographs and stories of Caleb so we can smile and laugh between moments of grief.

Golden Hydrant pin

By PSA Press:

This is the legend of the Golden Fire Hydrant, the miraculous fireplug that saved the Mission District of San Francisco in 1906.

When San Francisco burst into flames in the days following the disastrous 1906 earthquake, much of the city’s network of fire hydrants failed. Miraculously this hydrant, nicknamed “little giant,” is said to have been the only functioning hydrant and is credited with saving the historic Mission District neighborhood.

It stands on the southwest corner of Dolores Park to this day and is painted with a fresh coat of gold paint each April 18th.

Get yours here.

Biographical Info:

"I joked that living in the Mission would be the end of me. And there were nights where it felt like the case.

One night I went out with my friend Allan to the bar that no one goes to on 16th Street, where I lost half my drink and money on the dance floor. Later we skated down 16th to Evelyn Lee, where I fell off my board and landed on my head as the 22 bus sped past behind me. A sobering moment. At the bar, I sulked and nursed my wounds until Allan put on Amy Winehouse’s 'Valerie.' We danced, he dipped me, and I felt better."
