Blogging legend (and former Mission dweller) Tony Pierce (of the world-famous Busblog, LAist, the LA Times, and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) reacts to today’s news about Mr. Bing’s:
I first went to Mr. Bings with Marc Brown. Mellow, uncompromised, simple, comfy, respectable dive bar across the street from a peep show. Leave it to Frisco to intend to do it harm.
I am sure there are still some smart people in SF. Mark Johnson, Barney Greinke, and Allan Hough immediately come to mind. Sadly they are not political muscle men or power brokers.
At some point the people of San Fran will look up from their smart phones and realize they’ve turned one of the funkiest places in the world into a mall.
Hopefully the zombie apocalypse will go down soon and when it does I hope the zombies realize that the most brains per capita are in No Cal and they start there.
Drinks after the apocalypse at the 500 Club.
Looking forward to it, Tony.
