This post on SF Station’s Yum blog announced the departure of bar manager Brooke Arthur from ~WO HING GENERAL STORE~—unfortunately the business couldn’t support her position any longer. Hello, talented bartender on the loose! We had a chance to connect this morning—she said she’ll be at Wo Hing until the end of July, unless she finds something sooner. Look for Brooke to do some guest bartending and shifts around town, will keep you posted.

Lastly, a license transfer shows Demetrius Chapin-Rienzo, Nate Valentine, Todd Palmerton, and Larry Vavra have sold ~THE AMBASSADOR~ to new owners Adam Snyder and Justin Roja. Scoop reports the bar will close in a few months. 673 Geary St. at Leavenworth.
