What about the ex-dancer who posted that he used to send anonymous letters to artistic driectors to "stir the pot"? Is this real?

The little guy who puts the batteries in and fixes the watches and jewelry says he was the greatest dancer ever and used to hoof it with Jaffrey and SF Opera Ballet Show. He shows pics all the time of him in little tights with washboard feet, like the little ironing boards you used to get in cheap motels, and a kinda glazed expression. You get a discount if you listen & don't say nothing. Is he harmless?

I know this place, too. there is a connection nto the Blackhawk clubhouse bulletin. The poor little guy thinks that we believe it and so we get the %discount. Could be he's harmless, if a bit fixed/boring. Wouldn't let the kids or pets go there without the nanny though. Never know.

Been there. Know what of you speak. My kid wanted to study dancing and the jewelry guy talked to him encouragingly. Claimed he made a ballet for the san fran company and showed pictures of the thing called tonertantz, I believed, later at Rasputin store i saw the music for that and it said a Carlo Carnaval made the ballet dancing. I guerss it is harmless to all to fib about old stuff.

hello peoples,
I too am knowing of this place as it is located so too close to my business. In the watch shop/jewellers; the clerk who claims ownership and to be the greatest opera ex-dancer ever...is he to be concerned about? I am concerning with the problems for my customers and employee.
