    You're not going to be in SF proper until after 7, I assume? I'll text you later, I might not stick around that long if it's crowded.

    Ok. I was just texting Salah, sounds like he'll be out too, but around the same time as you. I may end up going back to my hood for a while after work, if not, I'll go by ZG and see how crazy it looks...

    Meanwhile I'm trying to think of other bars that have a patio. Lucky 13 has a tiny patio in the back. There are a couple of good places with patios in Bernal Heights (kind of out of the way) - El Rio is like 0.5 mi from 24th street BART, and Wild Side West is about another mile past that. I don't think either of those would be too bad for fikus either, since they're relatively near the highway.

    Disclaimer: WSW is a lesbian bar, but they let straights in. And it really is a lovely place.

    I really like WSW, I've always had a good time there. I'm not sure of what they have in the way of a beer selection, but their back patio is quite large and very cool.

    They have a decent selection though I haven't been there in years and can't remember just what (I always ended up drinking liquor there). Was thinking it might be a good option if ZG is too crowded, because the patio at WSW is pretty big.

    ZG is miserable when it's too crowded to sit.
    El Rio is much more tolerable since there it's not all level ground and there's more open spaces.

    Shall we just go to WSW? It couldn't possibly be as crowded as ZG tonight, and it's fairly close to Salah/Sunni's.

    I'm going on the 25th. I say we make it a boardie event! Even with the "100% certain" comment, I still wonder if there will be a last-second bailout, as has been the case the past 5 or 6 times. Let's hope so!

    Red Vic Movie House in San Francisco to close

    The already endangered repertory movie scene in San Francisco is taking yet another hit.

    Later this month, 31 years to the day after it became an instant landmark in the Haight-Ashbury, the Red Vic Movie House will close.

    "Our closure is 100 percent certain at this point," co-owner Claudia Lehan said. "On July 25, our birthday screening of 'Harold and Maude' will be our last, I'm sad to say."

    The Red Vic opened on July 25, 1980, at Haight and Belvedere streets. Its first film was the 1977 Canadian indie "Outrageous!" about the friendship between a gay hairdresser and pregnant mental patient, which set the tone for three decades of eclectic repertory and second-run fare.

    The theater was created and operated by a six-member employee-owned collective that rented space for 80 seats, including its signature worn couches, from the Red Victorian Bed & Breakfast.

    In 1991, the Red Vic moved a block west to its current location at 1727 Haight St., renovating the former Full Moon Saloon and expanding to 143 seats - this time padded benches and theater seats - and a concession stand featuring organic treats. Danny Glover was a regular, bringing his own green bucket to handle the gourmet popcorn.

    Glover, who once introduced "Places in the Heart," was merely one of many celebrities and industry professionals who showed up in person for Q&As. Legendary cinematographer Laszlo Kovacs presented "Easy Rider," and more recently Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, the Oscar-winning musicians and stars of the film "Once," performed after a screening of the film. Of the original six collective members, only Jack Rix is currently involved. Lehan has been in the collective since 1998; the other current members are Susie Bell and Sam Sharkey.

    "We had various benefits, and individual donors contributed via PayPal," Lehan said Tuesday night by phone as she was working a shift at the theater. "We had some support, but not enough to make it sustainable."

    Instead, the modern factors that have taken down many independently owned theaters - home video, HD cable and on-demand TV and movies, and streaming video from websites such as Netflix - appear to have finally doomed the Red Vic.

    The liquidation process has begun. A movie poster and collectibles sale is scheduled for Saturday afternoon ("We have sooo many posters, it's really out of control," Lehan said).

    The theater's lobby area will be absorbed by its next-door neighbor, the Alembic Bar, which plans to expand, according to general manager Daniel Hyatt. There are no plans for the auditorium itself.

    The San Francisco Neighborhood Theater Foundation estimates about 25 to 30 neighborhood theaters have closed in the past 30 years. Among repertory houses, only the Castro and Roxie theaters remain. The Roxie has remade itself as a nonprofit.

    But there is a new kid on the block: The San Francisco Film Society recently reached an agreement to operate the New People Cinema in Japantown beginning in September. Repertory programming is part of its mission.

    The Red Vic was a true original with a vibe that was perfect Haight-Ashbury. Movies remaining on the schedule include the Talking Heads concert film "Stop Making Sense," the Orson Welles classic "Touch of Evil" and a few Bay Area-filmed movies, such as "The Last Waltz," "What's Up, Doc?" and of course "Harold and Maude," which had become the theater's annual birthday movie.

    "It's a sad thing," Lehan said. "We held on for a long time. I'm so grateful to have been a part of it. A really great gig. Love it."

    I like the thought, but it sounds like a clusterfuck (attending on the last day). I haven't seen Harold & Maude in almost 20 years though.

    I got a bit lost trying to drive back to Oakland from Great American tonight and ended up having to detour down Mission. A drunk homeless guy jumped on the hood of my car and started to take his pants off. Thanks, homeless guy.

    Did any of you guys watch 60 Minutes earlier tonight? They had a pretty interesting piece about how a piece of footage from 1906, a week before the earthquake was found. Just surreal looking at the way the city looked at the time, and all the buildings and destruction that happened after the earthquake a week or so later. Really worth watching if you have the patience to sit though the 10+minute segment.

    Yep, this evening's 60 Minutes was a good one. I'm glad they mentioned Charlie Chaplin's filming history in the Niles (Fremont) area, especially since it isn't widely known that the Bay Area's history with silent films actually predates Hollywood's.

    I'm baffled that Zeitgeist getting some plumbing necessitated a Huffington post.

    I understand that people don't want it to go all Marina crowd (though, I mean, come on, we've all complained about that for 10+ years), but could anyone seriously still want port-a-potties?

    FYI, if you take BART to get home from work, those assholes that do their asshole protests are planning on shutting BART down in about an hour, so I'd recommend leaving work early, if you can.

    they're meeting at 4:30pm to start their disruption plans. it might be cancelled, as the public and police have found out about this, but I'd caution on the side of not getting stuck downtown until 8pm.

    I bought my Portishead tickets for $63.50 (after fees and shipping) during Portishead's pre-sale.

    I haven't bought my Bon Iver tickets yet, I'm waiting for a gift card before I purchase them. However, they are $39.50 + TM fees of ~$10. You can avoid the fees by purchasing from the box offices at the Fox or at the Greek.
