Doc’s Clock will reopen in a new space a block up Mission Street!!!

Screen Shot 2016-08-25 at 3.02.24 PM

HEAVEN SMILES UPON US!!!!!!!!!! Mission Local reports:

“We are moving Doc’s Clock and are going to do our best to keep it the same. We will have the same staff, the same shuffleboard, the same bar stools and the same bar,” wrote owner Carey Suckow in an email.

Little else will change, with the exception of larger bathrooms, Suckow said. She hopes to move the bar by the end of their current lease, pending Planning Department approval, and the landlord is willing to host the bar’s iconic sign as well, though it’s not yet exactly clear if and how that will be arranged.

Yussssss! (And it’s closer to my house now!) Read on!

Craigslist rental listing for Dolores Street “Airbnb cash cow” flagged for removal

Screen Shot 2016-08-25 at 11.06.54 AM

Mission Local reported on the listing earlier this week:

A nine-bedroom home on Dolores Street near 16th Street is for rent for $18,000 a month, possibly as an “Airbnb Cash Cow” or a tech incubator.

The broker, Bill Harkins, said any master tenant who chooses to pursue the rental as an Airbnb short term rental rather than a family home or a home for several roommates would have to follow all city ordinances, which includes getting a business license and registering as a short term rental hotel with the city. He added that he got the idea that someone might like to use the building as such from a former tenant, who told him she made $70,000 a year providing short term rental rooms.

Despite Harkins’ insistence that everything would be by-the-book, the listing is now gone. Read on for more.

Drink of the Week: Limited edition dry-hopped Anchor Steam at Bender’s

We stopped by for a pint last night and it was pretty cool. A rare twist on one of the most classic (and consistent) tastes in SF (and the world).

Earthquake memories

IMG_4684

I was at the Cal Academy of Sciences the other night for their weekly NightLife party (where it’s 21+ and there’s booze everywhere) and came upon this portion of their earthquake exhibit wherein visitors are asked to share earthquake-related memories.

Here’s a good one from the Mission:

And this one is good too:

Drink of the Week: Lo-Fi Aperitifs’ dry vermouth on the rocks (while watching the Goonies at Film Night in the Park)

Those exact circumstances might be hard to duplicate — but you can definitely pick up Lo-Fi Aperitifs products at Royal Cuckoo Market on 19th Street, just a couple blocks from the park, which gets you about halfway there. Here’s what the bottle looks like:

And here’s a closeup of the label, which gives you a nice hint of what to expect:

And all those ingredients are local! Read all about it, and Lo-Fi Aperitifs’ other fine products, here.

Note also that this stuff goes really good in cocktails, like this one my pal Jess had:

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."
