Looks like the fine folks at ~222 HYDE~ will be closing the bar for the rest of December for some renovations. They hope to reopen before the end of the year. 222 Hyde St. at Turk, 415-345-8222.
According to this post on Uptown Almanac, ~THE RITE SPOT CAFE~ has been (unfortunately) closed by the city for “serious or repeated violations” pertaining to a “vermin infestation.” Oy. I guess they took that dive status a little too seriously. Here’s hoping they reopen soon; calls to the bar were unanswered. 2099 Folsom St. at 17th St., 415-522-6066.
