What’s a uHood drunk to do?


Without fanfare our stalwart uHood dive bar has sadly closed its doors.  How I wish I could have gotten one more pint of cheap ass margarita or mojito?  Or even just a Racer IPA?  Or a few more goldfish for that bit of cracker sustenance?  Exactly what is needed when you approach your fourth round of pints of liquor at happy hour prices.  How I remember rushing to get to happy hour for the $4 margaritas . ..  only to learn that happy hour prices were just $1 less than the normal prices.

The Attic – I wish your farewell!!

In what may be a bit of solace – the owner of The Attic is opening a new place called Gashead Tavern in the former Charanga spot on Mission St.  But somehow a restaurant that serves actual food, has working lights, and may occasionally mop the floor just will never be able to replace The Attic.




A uHood Birthday – Blue Plate Turns 15

The almost-official restaurant of the uHood—Blue Plate—is turning 15.

Tablehopper has a brief write-up describing how the team at Blue Plate are planning to celebrate.

The sample birthday menu looks pretty decent; it’s replete with the usual staples of fried chicken, meatloaf and the goat’s cheese mac-n-cheese, but where’s the pork amongst the main course dishes? That’s a pretty major oversight.

The careful observer will note that Tablehopper incorrectly cites Blue Plate as being a Bernal restaurant.

When will they learn? It’s “La Lengua”!
