Time for A Bender?

After being shuttered since June 2006 due to fire damage, the ever so aptly named Bender’s bar reopens tonight on South Van Ness @ 19th.

Which also means the smell of freshly painted sheetrock, burnt remnants, hand made tables with inlaid “fake ID” tiles ( look for Joseph Strummer of 924 Gilman).

Oh and of course, I expect the return of bartendress extraordinaire, Miz Chupa Cabras…

Stop by daily twixt 5pm and 2 am and have a drink if you’ve been craving one…

It’s a situation that bodes well for alcoholics & ne’er do ‘ells in the Mission, and in the interest of culture and yer weary eyes, Bender’s is also featuring fine art from painter Brian Stannard this month…

He did a nice Ike & Tina over by the pool tables…

I stopped in for a couple quick ones lasterday eve, and am now out de door headed to Nawlins… but when yer there, tell Liam, Johnny or any of the usual suspects I said “doh hullo!”
