Molotov’s – Lower Haight, San Francisco

Wednesday night, I was hanging out with some bikers. I’d never been to Molotov’s. When we got there, Johnny Cash was blaring on the jukebox. The bar wasn’t packed, which was nice, but it also wasn’t empty. There was just enough for there to be a nice crowd, but not crowded. There were a few hipsters, but I didn’t see a single yuppie. It was that fabulous warm day, and so even at 8 in the evening, they had the door and windows open, and I was perfectly comfortable in my short sleeved shirt. After the Johnny Cash songs, some Beastie Boys and other songs that I didn’t recognize came on the jukebox, but smack dab in the middle of the night, out of nowhere, “The Israelites” by the eternal Desmond Dekker. And as we were leaving, more Johnny Cash. Coming and going to Johnny Cash is OK by me. Needless to say, I now have a crush on this bar.

So, we were sitting about, discussing the trip that J4 is planning for his birthday. He was to moto down to the tip of baja. As I am a “satin ass,” I’ll be flying down to meet the gang. Of course we got to reminiscing about previous trips we’ve taken togeter. Vegas last Labor Day, and Hawthorne, NV in May. I’m sure that if we make this trip, I will have lots of stories to tell. Wednesday was just a nice chill evening, hanging out with some friends in a cool spot.

  1. Yo Pegs,
    Last year, Strange Manor crew along with Go Jimmy Go hung out at Molotovs for Halloween. You should’ve checked out the jukebox even more. Probably one of my favorite jukebox collections. They’ve got Toots, Desmond, they even have HEPCAT! Let me know if you plan on making a trip out there sometime soon. I’d be down for a pint there. ~Ray

    Molotovs, Fuckyeah. Like Ray said, Halloween there was nicies. Wish you coulda been there that night. You woulda been able to party with Mushmouth, a lumberjack, a coupla lucha libres, a salty dog, a sailor, a zombie, Angus Young, Spy vs. Spy, and much more. Who could want anything more?

    Of course, Molotovs is bitchin’ on a any other day. It’s never let me down. Murio’s can’t even say that.
