Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Your missive brought back many remembrances CH. A day etched forever in the memories of all who experienced it. Some of us thought it was lights out forever. As it turned out, it was lights out for a few days only. One of the things I remember the most was how courteous everyone was to one another. No street lights on busy Van Ness. And four way stops at all the intersections, with everyone motioning for the other guy to go first. Simply amazing.

And your mention of SF's most venerable watering hole, the good old Washbag. Everybody's got a story about that swell place. Much better (IMO anyway) before Moose sold it and departed for across the way though. While it wasn't exactly a 'baseball' team, do you remember his beloved Les Lapin Sauvages? Oh, those were the days.
