The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

There is a Leonard Cohen poem called For Anne that goes like this:

With Annie gone,
whose eyes to compare
with the morning sun?
Not that I did compare,
But I do compare
Now that she’s gone

And this is exactly how I felt when I got the news that Sunflower had closed last year.

Well good news folks! I got this text from Tyler of Wild SF Waking Tours fame:

News flash: Sunflower on 16th has quietly reopened! (iPhone pic of you added to prove that it’s a current pic)

Featured below is Jordan the other member of Wild SF Walking Tours eating some delicious and cheap Sunflower food with a friend and repping a photo of my campaign poster to show it was current. This is a fine day to be a San Franciscan, a fine day indeed! I’m gonna go get me some vermicelli and imperial rolls now.
