Oh God, one of the true linchpins of the Mission dive scene, Amnesia
, has been sold to Beth and Craig Wathen of City Beer Store,
and two other partners
Capp Street Crap caught it
, flagging soon-to-be-former owner Shawn Magee's Facebook post
, which mostly highlights the history of Magee's ownership of the "1930s Parisian cafe minus the accents and cigarette smoke." (Magee is also the co-owner, along with Chris Milstead, of Driftwood in the Mission.)
If you have an inkling to read the entirety of Amnesia's Facebook post, please do (it's sweet), but we have bolded the relevant parts, below the jump. Magee emphasizes, in caps, that "AMNESIA IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE," and there's ample reason to believe it, but as my colleague said when I blurted out the news, "We've heard that before."
