i want to vacation in north beach or maybe inner richmond.
Sorry Joe, I'd love to help with your staycation, but I'm not aware of anything especially new in the Inner Richmond. However if you're in the mood to do some shopping for cool household and kitchen items, check out Kamei on Clement near 7th. It's Japanese earthenware nirvana-land. You can also find Chinese (and some Japanese) hot pots there far less expensively than on the 'net or at places like Sur La Table. Just a great store to get lost in. A brief walk from Heroes Club, which is always worth dipping into.
But as for anything new in terms of restaurants or things that might entertain the family, I dunno. Maybe see The Hobbit in the lowest-tech format available, 2D 35mm at the Balboa cinema?
Is the Balboa still there!?!
It is, and it appears to be going strong. One of the last remaining oldskool icons of the Richmond District, along with Joe's Ice Cream, Green Apple Books, the Columbarium, Khan Toke Thai and Tommy's Mexican. it's amazing when a small neighborhood cinema anywhere in the U.S. thrives these days. The once-mighty Alexandria just sits there deteriorating on Geary, and the site of the Coronet is now an assisted living facility.
I FART A LOT, just call me. I will give you the lowdown on all the hot richmond spots.
So many new places and old. Even a place that does Michelin star vegan food(if requested)
Quick run down:
-burma superstar still rules
-Eats is so much better than before
-The Corner Store just opened at Masonic and Geary. I think it's coming long nicely. Pretty good burger.
-The Bridge closed down. RIP
-hard knox cafe for candied yams
-Little Vietnam for Bahn Mi
-Seed Store for men and womens clothing
what? say it isn't so! was just there a few weeks ago with Sutfin eating Katsu Curry Don.
Does this mean that you like their sit down restaurant on Geary (which is pretty darned good) or the crepe place on Clement overcrowded with giggling teenagers?
Saw the shut-down Bridge yesterday ... terrible. I hope the art deco facade gets preserved, but knowing how San Francisco treats its old gems, it probably won't be.
I'm definitely sitting with the giggling teenagers eating asian crepes.
Also Kirkland, were talking about the Bridge theater in the Richmond. not On The Bridge in Japantown. Keep up, Keep up
I'm not really qualified to rib you about that, because I've been known to duck in there just to impluse-buy Rement and Bandai blind boxes.
pants less hooker ran into the deli, waving a knife the other day. that was fun. trying to stab her pimp.
If that was in the 'loin, I'm not sure it's anything new in the 'hood.
probably near Frank's studio. the hookers in the loin are too drugged up to do much of that kind of stuff.
I guess I'm not up to date one where the prostitutes are these days. Isn't Mr. K's studio in SOMA? The scenario just sounded so Tenderloin, if you'll pardon my neighborhood stereotyping.
SOMA is correct. Speaking of stereotyping...did you see that pic about bicycles and the different neighborhoods in SF? Thought it was funny.
Hadn't seen it but Google is our friend. Awesome funny!
Uh, you guys aren't reading his post correctly, Frank "is" the hooker...
Ted;s Deli 11th and Howard.....this part of soma gets pretty scummy in the off hours. Been getting worse lately thinking about moving the workspace.
Scared me there for a second. Damn you Kirkland!
whew... good to hear. these damn kids..
Mass chaos going on in SSF, San Bruno, SF, Millbrae, and Oakland. There were active shooters at the Tanforan Mall in San Bruno (often a crowded mall). Preliminary reports suspect that the shooters might have been fighting amongst themselves. One victim in serious condition, the other is critical. This occurred during the commute period, so many commuters are stranded. Hope everyone is safe, stay away from the area, they are still investigating, and shooters may be in the area. You may want to contact your friends/family who normally commute near or through the area. Very scary and very sad...
I've been following this. Very sad indeed.
Ed Hardy Celebration - Free with Registration!, Tomorrow, July 11, 2019, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Looks like fun! I can't resist his Tigers

Well that went fast! Looks like the free opening night celebration has been "sold out", but you can still see the exhibition at the Museum. Discounts to general museum tickets if you have tat(s)
I finally saw the exhibition yesterday morning during the press run. It's really amazing seeing all of the work set up in the museum. I'm super stoked!
