Sad news for people who want their pizza experience to be like a 1990s Clairol Herbal Essences commercial: Pizza Orgasmica on Clement Street has closed its doors. The Richmond Blog spotted a note on the door thanking the neighborhood and referring would-be patrons to the remaining Fillmore Street, San Rafael and Embarcadero One locations, to get their Latin Lover, Ménage à Trois, or Doggie Style pies.

A Fond Farewell to The Palace Hotel's Buffet Brunch Service

This weekend I bid goodbye to a San Francisco legacy. On Sunday I walked through the Palace Hotel’s glorious entrance, a handcrafted splendor made of gilded doors and marble floors. I made my way into the sunlit Garden Court, admiring the implausibly high glass ceilings that I recognized from the afternoon teas of my childhood, and more recently from The Game, a classic San Francisco movie that should be required watching material for any resident, new or old.

Scene From Your Market Street La Boulange

Well, that didn't take long. 

Remember 2012, when we were still worrying about the deadly S-curve on the Bay Bridge and eating lemon poppyseed pound cakes with reckless abandon? Well, probably nobody thought the Old Bay Bridge would be standing and we'd live in a city without Les Boulanges. But dreams do die, and this was the scene at approximately 2 p.m. today as meth-freaks stripped every last copper wire and workers prepared to implode the La Boulange at 685 Market with nitroglycerine and a staggered series of linear charges.*

Well, this is sad. Hoodline is reporting that A.G. Ferrari, the 96-year-old specialty grocer and sandwich shop with six locations in San Francisco and the East Bay, is closing its Castro Street location. It’s been there since 1998 and added a wine bar only last year.

So Much for Local Chains: Starbucks Zaps La Boulange

Just as it kinda-sorta seemed that Dick Costolo waited until Rupert Murdoch retired form News Corp. to announce he was leaving his role at Twitter, so too did Starbucks suspiciously wait until San Francisco was giddy celebrating the Warriors’ championship to announce that it was closing down all 23 locations of La Boulange by the end of September.

As Stephanie Tanner would put it, “How rude!”

McDonald's at 16th and Mission Suddenly Closes

SocketSite is reporting that the McDonald’s on 16th and Mission has suddenly been shut down. Not the hipster McDonald’s with the reclaimed wood cladding where the revamped Hamburglar charges his iPhone — that’s on 24th and Mission. This is the comparatively proletarian one next to that Bank of America ATM where the screens are all scratched out.

We’re still smarting over the Lexington Club, and the impending demise of the Elbo Room, not to mention the unlucky fate of Lucky 13, and now it looks like Mr. Bing’s might go the way of the woolly mammoth and the Steller's sea cow.

The Lexington Club is Closing Because the Mission Has "Dramatically Changed"

Posted By on Thu, Oct 23, 2014 at 3:34 PM

It's a sad day in the Mission as Lila Thirkield, owner of The Lexington Club, announced that she is selling the city's only remaining lesbian bar (assuming you don't count Wild Side West).

"Eighteen years ago I opened The Lex to create a space for the dykes, queers, artists, musicians and neighborhood folks who made up the community that surrounded it," Thirkield writes in a statement on Facebook. "Eighteen years later, I find myself struggling to run a neighborhood dyke bar in a neighborhood that has dramatically changed."

Posted By on Mon, Mar 18, 2013 at 10:50 AM

If you, like me, have been meaning to go check out the scene at Hayes Valley Farm but haven't gotten the chance yet, now's the time to make it a priority. The farm's organizers announced on their blog over the weekend that the city of San Francisco is finally going to make use of the land, meaning that the farm has to pull up its roots and find other digs.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
