No Real Story (But We Simply Couldn’t Resist): 2728-2730 21st Street
While Edwardians and Victorians represent one era of San Francisco's past, this definitely represents another.

Perhaps if they painted the Big Banal like this, it wouldn't receive so much hate...

Great part of the Mission. That looks like one good deal to me. Make that, a really really good deal.

The bar was originally due to be named "The Comet" at the suggestion of a friend of mine. Hence the giant comet on the side. Sadly, after the mural was done, the bar discovered there was another bar in SF named the Comet Club in the Marina, and that bar wasn't particularly enthused with having another comet in the city. Complaints were made, and the new bar was obliged to change their name to "the monkey bar".
The kind of mistake that can only happen in the 90's before the internet was usueful for business name searches.
