A couple new bars have opened near each other: UrbanDaddy brings word of ~GOLD STAR BAR~, a bar with some school-themed décor like student desks near the pool table and globes. Open 2pm-2am daily. 1548 California St. at Polk, 415-292-5004.
And Grub Street notes the upcoming opening of the ironically named ~BIG~, a tiny slip of a bar from Jones owner Peter Glikshtern and manager Jordan Langer. They are reportedly taking over a petite space in the Vantaggio Suites (previously Cosmo Hotel) and opening a bar in the coming months (no date at this time). 761 Post St. at Leavenworth.
