the pirate, not the comedian...

If you weren’t boozing it up at Sinbad’s this Saturday afternoon, you were wasting your time. I’ve been trying to convince anyone who’ll listen that Sinbad’s is my new hangout. After all, you know how I love old school mafia joints. Right on the water, walking into Sinbad’s in like walking into a very special episode of Roseanne, as this is where the Conner family would be every night if they went to San Francisco on a cable car/clam chowder/look at them homos-style vacation. There’s a huge 70’s style pirate mannequin greeting you at the front door.
And it’s not meant to be ironic.
I convinced Mikey to join me there Saturday afternoon, and by the time Kenny at the end of the bar had sent over mysterious shots and displayed the collection of naked women photos stored in his camera phone, my roommate was converted.
As the afternoon wore on, we found ourselves seated around the piano, drinking greyhounds and listening to Kenny sing Luther Vandross’ Greatest Hits.
So basically, Spots heaven.
This little slice of fabulous is going on right next door to the very happening Ferry Building Farmer’s Market every Saturday, and you’re an idiot if you don’t put on your pinky ring and swing by. If you can’t make it anytime soon, don’t worry. It’s where I’ll be celebrating my next birthday…

Except they don't know how to spell "Dining" on their homepage.

That only makes me love it more. Although, I've never really dinned there...

Oh, and if you click on any other page, other than the home page, you will notice a link to the "Diner" menu on the bottom of the page.

Beth, you didn't mention the bathrooms and the freakishly low toilets.

If you ever visit Massachusetts, Anthony's Pier 4 is east coast equivalent. Total goomba joint.

Beth, are you going to watch
environmentalist/producer/activist/actress/Jen S. at her play tonight?
If so, please bring a bag of extra ripe tomatoes.

Jen will just pull a postive review no matter what the critics have to say. She even put Beth's "positive" review of her last performance on her Girl's Club Entertainment website too. Very creative, and sad too.

I went to Sinbad's on the night of the Junior/ Senior prom in 1985. The event itself was at...Bimbo's 365!

Beth, what's going on? I think I'm going to be sick.

Spots said...

I'll be discussing this in tomorrow's Chronicle Culture Blog. Stay tuned!

That Chick said...

I feel so sad for everyone.
I think I just might move away because of the horrible thought of Jennifer being First Lady of anywhere near me would be too much to bear.

so sad...

Who cares if he marries her. He'll still get away with murder since she belives everything he tells her. He will cheat and she will blame the woman. Rose Kennedy 2007.

I have it on very good authority (a very close friend of theirs) that this rumor is not true! They are getting more serious but not ready for marriage yet.

beth you're making us wait another 24 hours?!!

The original quote said absolutely nothing about GN getting married. It just said she designed an invitation for him, PLUS lots of weddings. I think people are reading too much into this.

Beth, I've had acid reflux since reading the blind item last night. I barely slept. I really need to get a life and get laid.
Please let it be a hoax, Elaine is just stirring up drama I hope!

Gav was there last week there is about 4 videos of him and he addresses the Drudge report.

Nice southern accent on the radio interview. He looks hot! He is kind of a dork too, which makes him even more appealing, at least to me!

Does it freak you out that you're famous? Because, just for the record, I've been reading Spots for years.
I love you, Spots and I wish you every writing success.
Actually, I wish you every success. But I notice that your new writing gigs sometimes take you away from us.
I feel like I called dibs on you 2 years ago. I can't believe I went a Tuesday without Beth.
