R.I.P.

Longtime San Francisco fixture William "Chili Bill" Eichinger has passed away after spending twenty-four years behind the bar at Finnegans Wake, along with stints at Vesuvio's, Benders and more. In addition to being a lifetime bartender, Chili Bill was also an avid restaurant-goer and assembled a trove of restaurant reviews on his blog, where he famously documented his quest to eat at every Chinese restaurant in San Francisco. Finnegan's Wake will be hosting a "going away party" for Bill on Saturday, Sept. 28. Cheers to you, Chili Bill. [Chron]
