A Few SF Media Restaurant Hangouts that Satisfied Hunger Pangs (And a Few Other Things) on Saturday Night
SATURDAY PM Media hangouts in the city --there were many favorites; working at K101 after a day baseball game, I'd bring in some fresh pies from North Beach Pizza. I knew the late, great Chris Edwards (sales extraordinaire and Sunday Night Oldies DJ loved the pizza and went crazy galore for a cheeseburger across the street at Clown Alley. I agree. I know everyone had all access to a grill but only Clown Alley comrades knew the only way to make a perfect hamburger.
*If there was (and still is) the BEST Chinese food joint in town (with bar service no less) it was Hunan on Battery Sansome Street. Across the street from KPIX, it was prime eating ground (again, still is) for PIXers craving decent Chinese food and a place to get warm and fuzzy (if you know what I mean). Wayne Walker was tight with all the staff and supposedly had his own secret ordering code. Not all of it consisted of food.
*Best Italian food in the city: Vanessi's --an institution in North Beach and great, cheap, Italian food. Enough said.
