“I haven’t been to Jost’s in many years; something made me look it up to see if it was still there. (Maybe it’s just that there is nothing like it here in the Bay Area and I’m dyin’ for a schooner, a special and a coupla eggs. I used to be a semi-regular from just out of high school until I left LB, back when they served Eastside instead of PBR. I still remember what it looked like before they painted over the 50 years’ worth of tobacco stains on the ceiling back in 1980 or so. Probably the best non-hard-booze bar I’ve ever been to. Hope they last another 80 years.”
