I spotted this the other day as I was trudging past the House of Shields on my way home...
(Sorry it's not a closer pic. But, there were 2 people standing in front of it taking forever to get their own pics of it)
Anyway, if I read the liquor license thing in the window correctly, the new owners intend to keep the name. That's good.
But, this "love note" feels, I don't know, insincere. It's obviously put there by the new owners(?) to keep hope alive in those of us who need a quick shot before getting on the N. It just feels cynical.
But, what the hell do I know?
Well, actually, I do know one thing: go to Dave's on 3rd St to get that quick shot before Muni for the time being.
And let's hope the new House of Shields is as great as the old one.
