Thank you everyone for your continued support. We are in the process of dealing with insurance company requests and don't know yet how soon we can reopen. We hope to find an alternative spot for our Poetry at the '33 series. Stay tuned!!!
If you hadn't heard......
3300 Mission Street is now up for sale. The landlords, who had a sit down meeting with us and talked about their plans to rebuild, and offer us a new lease with potentially more space, failed to let us know about this. My mom got to find out when a reporter called and asked about it. Imagine her surprise.
As much as I'd like to keep hoping that we'll get a lease in that location, I think we all know it would never be the same. Yea, we could try and move to a new location, but the limits on moving a liquor license, the amount of protests you would get from opening a new bar, the amount of capital you would need, the time and effort that none of us have left, it's just too much. We had such high hopes for a return, bringing our bar back to the neighborhood where we had been a staple for 60 years, but there is no loyalty in the real estate industry. No common courtesy. You would think that a tenant of 60 years would get a courtesy call before finding out that their lease is terminated. But that would take class. - Shukry's Facebook post 2/1/17
Thank you to our neighbors - especially the Front Porch for shielding us from the smoke on the day of the fire, to the amazing folks at the Knockout and the Royal Cuckoo who held fundraisers for our staff, to all the merchants who participated in the fundraiser and to Eden at Seccession who organized and got the word out for every fundraiser or event- to all of you, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your gracious generosity. You have been the silver lining in this tragedy.
To our staff and our customers - our '33 family - thank you for sixty amazing years. We've celebrated everything together....weddings, divorces, births and birthdays as well as multiple world championships - and we've mourned those friends who've passed on together - now we mourn again. The worst part of this whole ordeal is all the faces we no longer see every day.
For those who have asked if they can do anything - YES, you can support your local Mission Bernal business..... running a business in San Francisco is difficult and expensive and they cannot succeed without your help! So if you want to help the '33, shop, eat and drink local!
Stay tuned.....we'd like to have a proper Irish wake for our beloved '33......details to follow.
And, we have a limited number of '33 shirts left - button at the bottom of the page!
|Established in 1956 by Jack Keane & Tom Lane and run by three generations of the Keane family for sixty years, the '33 was the place where natives, union workers, sports fans, trivia buffs and poets all gather. |
