I received word that the last day for ~DOTTIE’S TRUE BLUE CAFE~ at 522 Jones Street will be Saturday December 24th. After 18 1/2 years in their Tenderloin location—as previously mentioned on tablehopper—owner Kurt Abney is moving the business to the former Passion Café space. No official open date has been set for the new location. 28 6th St. at Market.

The Richmond SF blog says ~CAFE MEREB~, known for its Eritrean and Mediterranean fare, is closing December 20th. 1541 Clement St. at 16th Ave., 415-668-2988.

And the city just became a less-tacky place with this news from SFist: ~HOOTERS~ in Fisherman’s Wharf is closing December 21st.
