I thought this was already being covered by the LGBT museum in the Castro. Odd that the was no mantion of this.

Typical "EDGE" shallow reporting.

GADS! I hope they don't declare a bathhouse as an historical monument!

NSFW ...

I can't think of a bigger liar on Topix than you, little liar. Why aren't you signing in from Paris or Mongolia today, little liar?

do you really honestly THINK that ANYONE thinks you are logging on from all the points of the world? As if your lies are not enough, you have to insult everyone's intelligence at making believe you are in countries that you most probably could not find on a map?

Oh, don't be so cynical. I recall a very much younger Curteese sitting in the Twin Peaks bar at Castro and Market, amazed at how it had huge windows, instead of hiding dark cave bar feel. Twin Peaks is across the street from a real busy MUNI subway station. Your much younger, and not quite out, Curteese sat there and stared in further amazement as hundreds of gay men filed in and out of the subway. I had never seen such a sight and was more than delighted to see so many others out and proud.

I enjoyed the after-work Elephant Walk crowd.

Oh, memories. I so recall that crowd, my favorites were the Wells Fargo bank loan officers or the Macy's clerks or guys from Williams Sonoma, still in suit and tie, bending an elbow in Elephant Walk, at 6 PM or so, along with their pals in flannel and denim.

Elephant Walk was another place of seeing a male parade outside its big front windows.

You just induced a 30 year old slide show of memories in my head, Snyper. Good times, good times....

Huh, not sure, there's a bagel sort of place on the east side of Castro, right near 18th. I've gotten coffee there, but don't even recall the Toad.

My favorite coffee shop in the world is Peet's Coffee on Market, right near Noe, about 3 blocks down from Castro. On a cold windy day there is nothing finer than to sit in one of its bay windows and watch the trees whip back and forth and folks in their fashionable coats stroll by.

No, I have heard of it, but never been. I never lived in the Bay Area, alas, but in my day, air fares were idiotically cheap. I mean sometimes PSA or United would offer a fare of like $25 each way. For a while, in the later 70's, Pan Am would do repositioning flights, planes from Tokyo that had to be in LA or San Francisco, that day. If you went stand by, and there was always room for they were 747's, you could take that Pan Am flight for THIRTEEN dollars each way. Even as cheap as gas was in those days, that was cheaper. I was running up north twice a month for years. I knew those days were Halcyon, but had no idea how much they were until now.

Toad Hall was 3 doors down from the camera shop. Same side of the street.
