Ok. I was thinking about this the other day. Even, though I was probably going to be unable to attend the meeting I wanted to suggest a good meeting place.
Its called Tommy’s Joynt. Its on VanNess and Geary.
Its this wacky old place, that looks like it has been there for 50 years, with little no change in the help, or in the clientele.
I have mentioned before that Ukelele Ike, and Flora strike me as people that hopped straight out of a Ben Katchor comic. (With apologies to Flora’s thighs) Tommy’s Joynt would be at home in one, as well.
- The First time I went there, two guys were talking about what they were doing when world war 2 ended.
*It looked like they were still wearing the same suits as the day WW2 ended.
*Booze and food are readily availble at this place. Not too expensive either. Although, I have yet to taste the food.
*Bartender enjoys when you order straight Bourbon.
*You could wait around three days and never see a yuppie or a fern.
*Long tables would facilitate a good get together. And, for the stragglers, you could sidle up to the bar after everyone leaves.
*They spell Joynt, Joynt.
*Lots of wacky signs on the walls, that are funny and old. Not, unfunny and artifically aged.
*Its Very close to the Tenderloin. Which, is a sketchy area, from what I understand. (I guess for some folks thats a plus)
*The food menu isn’t very large.
I like the place lots, I can’t think of any other minuses. Has any other dopers visited this fine establishment?
