Was happy to return home to the news that the ~EAGLE TAVERN~ will end up with gay owners after all! What a turnaround of events, seriously. The new owners are Mike Leon and Alex Montiel; you can read more on Grub Street here and here. This SFBG piece by Marke Bieschke shares they are hoping to reopen by Halloween.
Back in July, I mentioned the Tonic/Bullitt/Mayhem/Rebel crew was taking over ~GOLD STAR BAR~, and Eater now reveals the new name is ~SODA POPINSKI~. Get ready for the décor theme: “Soviet propaganda meets Wild Wild West.” There will be hot dogs and chili on the menu during football season as well. 1548 California St. at Polk.
