The Plight of S.F. Bars

Mainstream media takes notice of the disturbing trend that sees a passing of a generation of San Francisco old school joints like the Barleycorn, Owl Tree, Washbag and Moose's, among others: "With each passing, patrons say, San Francisco has lost a bit of its soul. I think it's sad,' said Ed Moose, whose establishment is being converted into an Italian restaurant. 'Where should we go when we're not going home? Where can we have our nerves soothed or indulge in a secret rendezvous? It's not just about the booze. It's the bonding.' Do check the archives for more on the plight of local institutions and dive bars (but not Ed's secret rendezvous). [LAT]
