Return to Ashland, Oregon and Oakland, California in May-June 2019

Return to Ashland, Oregon and Oakland, California
May – June 2019

Ashland visitor map 1

Ashland, Oregon Visitor’s Map

It’s been a year (and a half) since we planted my father’s body in the ground in Southern Oregon. The headstone unveiling, after a year of mourning, is a Jewish tradition, so we returned to Ashland for the dedication, to see family, and to take care of a little business.

Dad 1

Lee Weisel RIP

NOTE: We started this Blog Post in June after we got back and now it is October.
It is finally time to finish and publish it as promised. There are a lot of previous Blog Posts about Ashland, Oregon! If you are interested in more travel and tourism info, you should search for them using the SEARCH BOX or checking out The Archives.

ROAD TRIP to Ashland, Oregon!
Los Angeles, California to Ashland, Oregon via I-5 north
Thurs 10:15pm – Fri 8:25am

“I’ve been drivin’ all night, my hand’s wet on the wheel
There’s a voice in my head that drives my heel”

72531947_3145079958851882_6200144488480899072_n

We have found the drive from Los Angeles is much better at night. Interstate 5 between The Grapevine and Sacramento and Sacramento and Redding is a long flat drive through the Central Valley of California. There are a lot of “big rig” trucks and only two lanes most of the way, which makes for slow tourists trying to pass, and that creates dangerous situations when other drivers “can’t wait” and do stupid things. So, there are not a lot of tourists if you drive after 9pm, most are asleep for the night, and the truckers have restrictions on the hours they can drive, so many of them have to stop and rest. And that means less traffic, less stupid drivers, fewer cops and better road conditions if you don’t mind driving at night and the bugs on your windshield. Also, the heat and sun can be terrible during the day (even with air conditioning) so there’s that too.

Sunrise at Lake Shasta

Sunrise at Lake Shasta, California

If the timing is right, you will get a beautiful sunrise sometime after you pass Redding! Sunrise on Mount Shasta, or coming through the Siskiyou Pass, is a fine experience. There are nice places to stop along the way if you get tired: rest stops, motels, casinos and trucker rest areas along the highway (both commercial and off-ramp/road-side turnouts). We like to drive straight through, stopping only for gas and rest breaks, if we’re doing it at night. We pack food, drink and a change of clothes. Our car is prepared for roadside emergencies, and we have the enhanced auto club coverage with 100 miles towing for our long road trips.

Breakfast at the Morning Glory Cafe in Ashland, Oregon!

We arrived in Ashland early morning and decided to stop for a big breakfast at the Morning Glory Cafe. We like the place but it can get very busy. Free parking next door at the M-otel. We parked, stretched, and then we got a seat at the counter without having to wait and enjoyed our food.

After breakfast we drove to the motel and tried to get an early check-in, but no luck. So, we went thrifting/antiquing for a couple hours. We drove to Medford and back, made a few stops, and drove to The Ranch. We hung out until it was time to check-in, then drove back to the motel and moved into our room.

Family stuff all weekend and then Dad’s headstone unveiling on Sunday afternoon.
Most of the family activities were small and personal and we didn’t take pictures. We had family dinner at The Ranch on Friday, dinner at Beasy’s on The Creek in Ashland on Saturday, and a post-ceremony gathering at The Ranch after the unveiling on Sunday.

Our accommodations for the weekend:
Comfort Inn in Ashland, Oregon – 3 nights (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)
Breakfast and Free WiFi included

The room was spacious, clean and equipped with a fridge and microwave. There was also a large “Jacuzzi Tub” in the room, set in a weird space adjacent. We were told it was the only room with this kind of tub. There was also a skylight in the weird space, and there was no way to cover it or block the light from the rest of the room, which was a problem because we like it dark. We got some black trash bags and tape from the front desk and tried to jury rig a “blackout” shade, but it was not very successful.

We could have moved to another room, but it was also graduation weekend for the local high schools and Southern Oregon University in Ashland, so everything was booked solid on Friday night everywhere in Jackson county, so we just decided to go with it and enjoy the tub.

Bubble Bath in the “Jacuzzi Tub” at the Comfort Inn

We stayed here last year for the funeral weekend and it was a pretty good “no frills” option, convenient to roads that lead to The Ranch. And yes we were invited to stay at the house, but we would be surrounded by family, and without private space, so we spent the additional money for the motel room and “peace of mind”.

The Comfort Inn has a nice daily Breakfast Buffet served in a large dining room next to the lobby. The start serving the hot breakfast early and it’s a pretty nice spread with good options. And they also have FREE coffee all day and night.

On The Menu: scrambled eggs with bacon or sausage, Mexican egg scramble, waffles (make them yourself), fresh fruit, cereals, milk, juices, coffee, tea, bagels, bread for toasting, mini-croissants, donuts, muffins, yogurt and more.

Family Dinner at The Ranch on Friday night

After checking in, cleaning up, and taking a short nap at the motel, we drove back to The Ranch and had a nice dinner with the immediate family. After dinner we stopped at the market, bought provisions for the weekend and a bottle of Mister Bubble, and then returned to the motel and took a long hot bubble bath in the in-room “Jacuzzi Tub”.

We slept and woke up early on Saturday. After enjoying the breakfast buffet at the motel, we went back to bed. We woke up, got ready and went up to The Ranch to be social, and then went into Ashland, and then up to Medford, before returning to the motel to clean up and get ready for dinner.

Dinner at Beasy’s on the Creek on Saturday night

The family went out to dinner at Beasy’s on The Creek in downtown Ashland. It was Dad’s favorite restaurant for entertaining, the Chef/Owner is a good friend, and we had his “Bilbo Baggin’s” Farewell Party for all his friends there. It was a great meal but there was a lot of emotional stuff happening at the table during dinner.

Chef Rob in the Kitchen at Beasy’s on The Creek in Ashland, Oregon

On The Menu:
6oz filet with 2 prawns, broccoli, potatoes au gratin, clam chowder, bread and butter, wine, a coke, and pot du chocolate for dessert.
Pressed pinot noir red wine with dinner.

“Surf & Turf” Dinner at Beazy’s on the Creek in Ashland, Oregon

After dinner we went back to the motel and tried to sleep, but we couldn’t. Too much stuff going on in our head and not tired/insomnia. It was a long night at the motel. We finally fell asleep for a little while and then hit the Sunday breakfast buffet. We hung out until it was time to caravan over to the cemetery for Dad’s headstone unveiling.

It was a truly beautiful day and the weather was absolutely perfect. There was a gathering of family and close friends at the gravesite, and the Rabbi performed a brief service to dedicate the headstone. It is a Jewish tradition to wait a year (and mourn the dead) before placing the headstone at the grave. And so, we gathered and the headstone was unveiled, and it was a very emotional afternoon. Then after the service we went back to The Ranch for a reception and celebration of his life with more food and drink.

After the reception we went back to the motel and took a nap, and when we woke up we hung out until we got hungry. We drove up to Medford to the In-n-Out Burger (the first one in the state) and got some late-night food.

Dinner at In-n-Out Burger in Medford, Oregon on Sunday night

61829292_2877438498949364_1635265822509236224_o

In-N-Out Burger in Medford, Oregon

Got that In-n-Out Urge! Also, there aren’t a lot of late night options on Sunday in Ashland, so two Double-Double cheeseburgers and a chocolate shake was a terrific choice for familiar and inexpensive comfort food after a long and emotional day.

 

49735050_2641107282582488_6710841685095481344_n

In-n-Out Double-Double Cheeseburger

We returned to the motel, took another hot bath in the “Jacuzzi Tub”, took a hot shower, and tried to sleep. When the morning came around we woke up and enjoyed the breakfast buffet again. We packed up our stuff and loaded the car and checked out of the Comfort Inn at noon on Monday.

Family stuff is just exhausting! Our brother flew in Saturday morning and left on Sunday afternoon. Our east coast aunt left on the early morning flight to New York from Medford with a layover in Denver. Our sister left on a later flight Monday for Los Angeles with a layover in San Francisco. And our other aunt and uncle (and their caregiver) left Tuesday around noon on a flight to Phoenix, Arizona.

We moved to The Ranch for the next two nights (Monday and Tuesday) after my brother, sister and east coast aunt had left town. We checked out of the motel and moved into our east coast aunt’s guest room, which used to be my father’s office. It was weird being in the space and sleeping in a bed located where his desk once was, and there were still remnants of his office stuff and the same pictures on the wall to add to the weirdness….

We stayed around the house and there was an afternoon nap, before we went out to dinner in downtown Ashland.

Dinner at Lark’s Kitchen at the Historic Ashland Springs Hotel on Monday evening

12936623_1357360104290552_5533369112189294917_n

The Historic Ashland Springs Hotel (from an earlier visit)

We went out to eat again with our aunt and uncle (and their caregiver) and stepmother at Lark’s Country Kitchen in the Historic Ashland Springs Hotel. Our aunt and uncle wanted a good burger. and they have a good burger on the lunch menu, also available “off the menu” at dinner on request. We called and confirmed this and made an early reservation. There is no theatre in Ashland on Mondays, the stages are dark, and the OSF has the day off, so there was no pre-theatre dinner rush to worry about. We enjoyed a wonderful relaxed dinner in the dining room with a nice view of Ashland’s main drag, also less crowded on Monday, but alway good for people watching.

On The Menu:
Fried chicken breast with bacon gravy, mashed red potatoes, and sub asparagus for collared greens. Sea Smoke Southing pinot noir red wine and a coke to drink.

The fried chicken breast was excellent! And everyone enjoyed the burgers too. After dinner, we returned to The Ranch and tried to sleep. It was another long night.

Tuesday was a “take care of business” day. We had a mission to document the details of the Music Master Tape Library and go through a few boxes of Dad’s family photographs. It took all day to complete the tasks, and we had leftovers from the weekend for dinner, packed most of our stuff, and went to bed early.

Ashland, Oregon to Oakland, California on Wednesday morning 8am – 1:30pm

We woke up very early, loaded the car, had a quick breakfast sandwich, and hit the road headed south on Wednesday morning with our friend’s house in Oakland, California as our afternoon destination. It was another beautiful day and the drive was pretty easy. We stopped for gas in Santa Nella and missed the I-505 intersection at Winters. So we had to go further south (80 to 680 to Walnut Creek) to go east into the Bay Area. The “detour” added a little extra time, but it was another beautiful day, so we didn’t mind too much. There was a little traffic coming into Oakland, but it was a really nice drive.

Mount Shasta, California (from the I-5 freeway)

NOTE: WATCH OUT FOR THE CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL!
There were a lot of cops on the road during the daytime. They drive marked cruisers, Ford Mustangs and SUVs, as well as unmarked cars (white and blue spotted this trip). Watch your speed, watch your mirrors, and watch out for hidden speed traps!

Wednesday Afternoon in Oakland, California (well, actually in Piedmont)

We arrived at our friend’s house and parked around 1:30pm in the afternoon. And after a quick stop there to refresh and relax, we decided to go afternoon day drinking at a local bar within walking distance and then have something to eat TBD nearby in the neighborhood.

62002682_2884019188291295_4596633141602418688_n

Kerry House in Oakland, California

First stop was Kerry House, a divey neighborhood bar with cheap drinks, on Piedmont Avenue in Oakland.  Asked if they had “fresh cream” and ordered a White Russian (aka “a caucasian” made with vodka, coffee liqueur and fresh half&half) when the bartender said yes. Then we waited while the doorman went to the corner store and bought small cartons of milk and half&half, so yes it was fresh! We also had some chips and our friend had a couple of Cosmopolitans (vodka and cranberry juice).

We offered to take our friend out to lunch or dinner, whatever they wanted. The sushi restaurant didn’t open until 5pm, and with our day drinking and another stop at the nearby coffee house for an Italian espresso with whipped cream, we could have gone there. Instead it was decided that we would cook dinner for our friend, so we went to the local market and bought some good food to prepare and consume at her house.

On The Menu: Chef JoshWillTravel did a great job!
Big Thunder Ranch BBQ Baby Back Pork Ribs and steamed broccoli for dinner
with pita chips and hummus appetizer to start

61957185_2884017471624800_3628203688067072_o

Big Thunder Ranch BBQ Baby Back Ribs and Steamed Broccoli

We prepped the food and put the ribs in the oven to cook for an hour and a half.
Then we had a little nap during the Basketball Game which was being played in Oakland.

Final Score: Toronto Raptors 123 – Golden State Warriors 109 (series tied 1-1)

After the game was over, we enjoyed a very nice dinner and hung out until 11pm.
Then we hit the road again for another long night drive to Los Angeles. Because of traffic (caused by the game and construction) we had to go north to go east to go south and we added some extra miles, but probably saved some time by following Google Map back to I-5 south.

“No more speed, I’m almost there
Gotta keep cool now, gotta take care”

TunnelVision!

Oakland to Los Angeles, California
Wednesday night 11pm – Thursday morning 5:30am
Antioch Bridge $6.00 Toll Fee (crossed it around midnight leaving the Bay Area)

Antioch

Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s Photo of the Antioch Bridge

The least-traveled and probably least known of the region’s toll bridges, the Antioch Bridge, is a steel plate-girder automobile/bicycle/pedestrian bridge that crosses the San Joaquin River. The Antioch Bridge links Antioch with Sherman Island in southern Sacramento County, near the city of Rio Vista.

Once we reached the I-5 south it was an uneventful drive, with a stop to fill the gas tank and empty the bladder and a rest stop to stretch and use the restroom. There was a lot of construction work and one bad traffic accident ( a car went off the highway and into a deep ditch off the elevated road) and we were pretty sure there were fatalities as we passed. Another obvious reason to ALWAYS DRIVE SAFE and PAY ATTENTION!

Incident on the I-5 Freeway South on Thursday Morning

We arrived in the San Fernando Valley just before 5:30am and as we reached the 405 freeway north, there was already “stop and go” traffic at the 101 intersection, so we exited and took surface streets home, with a quick stop at our PO Box to pick up the mail.

The Commodification of Burning Man!

The Commodification of Burning Man!

NOTE: If you don’t know anything about Burning Man, you might want to scroll on past this Blog Post to the next one! This is all about the Burning Man principle of DECOMMODIFICATION and then an opinion about The Ticket Sales in 2019.
There are 10 Principles (actually 11 because Consent was added).

“In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.”

69323824_10220074618285195_6657991086021017600_n

Burning Man has a “Gift Economy”, not a barter/trade, not transactional, no money is used except to buy ice and coffee. All promotion and branding is rejected and brand names are covered or altered in the spirit of the event…. except that doesn’t always happen.

Recently (February, 2019) the Burning Man Project Organization (aka the BMorg) issued a statement about a “course correction” to eliminate these gross violations of the no promotion/branding particularly on social media like this (mostly Instagram & Twitter).

So the question for you to think about, and respond to in the comments if you so choose, it this:

Q: How do you feel about the commodification of Burning Man by celebrities?
Last year I was truly disgusted when comedian Nick Kroll went on the Colbert talk show and showed pics and told stories! The picture of Diplo with the chicken is going viral, and he should already be banned for his past behavior. I blame Paris Hilton and the instasparkleponies and if they’re really serious about “course correction” they need to stop this shit. And how do you feel about Tool dropping their latest release from the art car Abraxus at the event?

BURNING MAN 2019: (and this is just an example for educational purposes)

fUPARIS

“Is Paris Hilton selling shit on Instagram using BurningMan?” is exactly the question! Is she being paid to pose at Burning Man 2019? Is this a commercial endorsement using the burn and other peoples art to promote sunglasses, goggles, fashion, and her brand?

Paris Hilton’s Insta pics are (hashtag)burningman and there are 5 pics commodifying other peoples art promoting her brand and products without giving credit or compensating them.

PARIS INSTAPROMO

NOTE: We added the white text to give credit to the artist!

WE LOVE DJ PARIS HILTON! (just not her commodification of Burning Man for money)

 

Ask how celebrity endorsements work and internet influencers are compensated. Paris Hilton is a genius at Business, Entertainment, Media and Promotion! Check out her many business ventures and her net worth. I don’t think that her business should include exploiting Burning Man for $$$$$.

maxresdefault

Is actor/comedian/producer Nick Kroll going on a late night talk show to promote himself and his projects while using (hashtag)BurningMan considered commodification? He’s being paid to appear. It’s a pretty funny interview, but is this what the “cultural correction” needs to address?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeDJ1L1Qh3I

This is a mainstream network show that he is being paid to appear on. Followed by a “plug” for his TV show that he is also paid for. The comedy bit is part of his act, he’s a standup, it’s art but he’s paid for it too. And Colbert feeds him the prompts. Laughing at the freaks is good television! I don’t know how BM protects its copyrights, trademarks, and enforces the “policies”, I’m just barking on my megaphone about Paris Hilton, the original Sparkle Pony (DJ) today And referencing the Nick Kroll clip as an example.

“Policy” regarding Commercial Promotion and Personal Use Media from BMorg:
Burners are welcomed to use photos, videos, and audio recordings obtained at the event for their personal use, which includes:
Sharing with your friends and personal social media networks.
Displaying on personal websites—as long as the websites do not sell any products or services, and do not pretend or appear to be an official Burning Man website.
Posting to your personal accounts on photo-sharing sites such as Flickr, Instagram, YouTube, and Tumblr—as long as the posts aren’t commercial in any manner and the accounts aren’t used for purposeful promotion. You may not directly monetize any media through paywalls or advertisements.

I’m not saying that celebrities shouldn’t be included. I’m saying they shouldn’t be allowed to commodify the experience to sell their shit. They shouldn’t pose for paid ads at The Burn. They shouldn’t go on network tv and show pictures and laugh at the freaks because it’s good television while they’re being paid to appear and plug the shit their selling.

Nearly 40 percent of Burning Man’s money, more than $15 million, was spent on salaries and other employee benefits, an increase of about $2 million from the year before, according to the 2017 tax documents. The top 10 salaries from 2017 are:

Marian Goodell, CEO: $261,000
Larry Harvey, President: $211,000
Theresa Duncan, Director of philanthropic engagement: $187,000
Harley K. Dubois, Director: $176,000
Ray Allen, General counsel: $174,000
Doug Robertson, Director of finance: $161,000
Heather White, managing director: $160,000
Kim Cook, Director of art and civic engagement: $156,000
Charlie Dolman, event operations director: $151,000
Crimson Rose, secretary: $145,000

Here is the salary breakdown, and there are other people receiving large payment too. And we are aware of the arguments about “volunteer labor” when so much money is generated. Is LNT a way to avoid the expense of trash removal? Is “self-reliance” a way to avoid providing services? Today my post was about Paris Hilton and her InstaPromotion, and celebrities making money from the decommodified community.

Ask the artist! Artist, Laura Kimpton, does she have consent to use your Art in her self promotion? http://laurakimpton.com

We were overjoyed to discover her art from The Playa in the heart of commercial Las Vegas at the Venetian=Palazzo Hotel and Casino on The Strip!
We watched so many people pose for pictures and interact with the “LOVE” piece in a very short time. And we love love love all of her stuff, particularly “XOXO”.

NOTE: Funding artists to make art is not commodification until that art is used to make money for the artist from a commercial venture. Burning Man Project is funding non-commercial art as far as I know.

And what about JoshWillTravel?
Are we commodifying the Burning Man experience here?

70042850_10156953339480892_735629586003394560_n

No, we are not exploiting the event for commercial gain, therefore, we are within the BMorg guidelines, and we are not using Burning Man for any commercial intent!

NOTE: Our participation in the event this year, because of the ticket situation (and not having them), was Camp Envy and gifting art/sharing pics (screenshot caps as it was happening) with the webcast community via Slack chat, and the group Facebook and Twitter streams. No personal gain was intended and no personal hashtags were used until the event was over. We’ll be sharing the pics again here on the Blog soon, and on our other social media pages within the guidelines and without any commodification or commercial intent.

HERE’S OUR OPINION PIECE ABOUT THE 2019 TICKET FIASCO>
Burning Man Tickets and THE CONSTANT FUCKUP WITH TICKET SALES!

burned

Posted this on the Burning Man page, but thought I would share it here too, in regards to TiCKETS AND THE CONSTANT FUCKUP WITH TICKET SALES: If they were serious about protecting the integrity of the ticket process and actual DECOMMODIFICATION they would use an in-house mail order system like the Grateful Dead used. No outside ticket vendors. Easy to spot multiple ticket requests from the same address. Handwritten requests only! And using a postal money order only for purchase removes big banking and internet fees from the transaction. Also the “service fees” could be reduced and valuable BM jobs could be created. (ps I worked for World ___ USA ’94 as Customer Service Supervisor for International Ticketing – 9 US Venues sold over a year in advance and insured tickets direct shipped a few weeks before the games) And the Mail Order process involves real participation, not just watching the arrows spin.

Burning Man 2019: HOW MANY PEOPLE GOT SCAMMED THIS BURN? There were so many stories pre-burn! Did you get a ticket? Did you get scammed? Was it your fault for trusting “the system”? How did you find your ticket? How did you get scammed?

 

My story: I just needed one ticket and maybe a VP. Tried the Main Sale and got f*cked by LYTE. Left spinning for 3 hours. Tried STEP at Main Sale price and later found out there was no way that was going to happen unless I went for FOMO price. Then struck out in the OMG and was left out in the cold like so many people…. How do you plan or prep if you don’t have a ticket and don’t know if you’ll get one? Plenty of SCALPERS online, jacked up prices on the PayTicket sites, and too many people trying to find a ticket with a sad story…. Noticed a lot of Burgins got tickets, and a lot of return Burners were left begging. People were adding tickets to jacked up RV rentals and offering them along with camp placement for a fee. Thinking most people paid over $1500 a ticket if they didn’t get scammed…. ultimately, there wasn’t a ticket and I didn’t beg hard enough. Also, didn’t want to pay over OMG prices for obvious reasons and finally gave up, rather than risk a “scalped” ticket.
You should learn about GDTS (Grateful Dead Ticket Sales) back in the day. The New Year’s run, benefit shows and small venues always sold out by mail order and fans paid face value.
You’re not doing 70000, because you have 25000 DGS, volunteer and Low Income tickets. ~45000 tickets Main Sale with the on-sale date and access only available to verified Burner profiles. Tickets assigned a Personal ID number attached to the profile, protects user identity, tickets could still be sold at face value to other Burner profiles, gifted, donated before the mailing date, but the hard ticket would be shipped by insured service to the Burner profile’s address. Having postal money orders would reduce credit card fraud and make the penalties Federal instead of petty. Postal money orders are protected. Shipped tickets protected by insurance with a dedicated service line for problems. Would also reduce the lines at Willcall if tickets were delivered. If you got a ticket in the Main Sale you wouldn’t be eligible for Low Income.
I also suggest a $10000 VIP level ticket for instasparkleponies and plug and play camp burners to subsidize the low income program.

UPDATED October 16, 2019:
The 2020 Burning Man Theme: THE MULTIVERSE!
2020_themeV2-e1571199859221-665x375

“The 2020 Burning Man event theme explores the quantum kaleidoscope of possibility, the infinite realities of the multiverse, and our own superpositioning as actors and observers in the cosmic Cacophony of resonant strings. It’s an invitation to ponder the real, the surreal and the pataphysical, and a chance to encounter our alternate selves who may have followed, or are following, or will follow different decision-paths to divergent Black Rock City realities. Welcome to the Multiverse!

===========================================================================

JUNE 2019!

JUNE 2019! (Tempus fugit!)

62320427_2882274575132423_7391254218058760192_o

Mount Shasta in California

JUNE is the sixth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars,
is nаmеd аftеr thе Rоmаn gоddеѕѕ Junо, thе wife оf Juріtеr,
and is the second of four months to have a length of 30 days.
NOTE: We are still writing (and taking our sweet time, too) the Las Vegas, Nevada and Ashland, Oregon Road Trip Blog Posts, but we haven’t posted anything this month, so here’s a quickie for June!
I love to sing-a
About the moon-a and the June-a and the spring-a,
I love to sing-a,
About a sky of blue-a, or a tea for two-a,
Anything-a with a swing-a to an “I love you-a, “
I love to, I love to sing!
Give me a song-a
About a son-a gun that went and done her wrong-a.
But keep it clean-a,
With a cottage small-a by a waterfall-a,
Any sob-a that will throb-a to a bluebird’s call-a,
I love, I love to sing!
I was born a singin’ fool-a,
Lah-de-dah!
Ol’ Major Bowes is gonna spot me,
Got through Yale with boula-boula,
Lah-de-dah!
Old microphone’s got me!
I love to sing-a,
I love to wake up with the south-a in my mouth-a,
And wave a flag-a,
With a cheer for Uncle Sammy and another for my mammy,
I love to sing!

   – “I Love To Singa” by Cab Calloway

 

The weather during JUNE in the USA is mild
and days have the longest daylight hours.

 

Flag Day! was June 14th,

The Condor   Where It All Began
The birthplace of the world’s first topless & bottomless entertainment
Topless – June 19, 1964   Bottomless – September 3, 1969
Starring Ms. Carol Doda   San Francisco, California

The Condor Club and Big Al’s are located at the corner of Broadway and Columbus Avenue in the North Beach district of San Francisco. The Condor Club opened in 1964. The large marquee sign featured a cartoon image of Carol Doda with red flashing lights on her breasts. Carol Doda’s 44DD breasts were dubbed “the New Twin Peaks of San Francisco” and were insured for $1.5 million with Lloyd’s of London.

NOTE: The other famous clubs on the block are Roaring 20’s and the Hungry 1 Club.

carol-doda1_3508906b

Carol Doda (August 29, 1937 – November 9, 2015) was the first known topless entertainer and a cultural icon of the 1960’s. She made history on June 19, 1964, when she bared her breasts and performed in a topless “monokini”. The club went “bottomless” on September 3, 1969, and remained full nude until 1972 when it became illegal to serve alcohol in full nude clubs.

Carol Doda danced at the Condor Club until 1985 and died in 2015. Her only arrest happened in 1965, when police raided the club on April 22. She was arrested along with Pete Mattioli and Gino del Prete, the owners of the club on indecency charges. They were all found not guilty. She retired as a stripper in the 1980s but continued performing, and she also owned Carol Doda’s Champagne and Lace Lingerie Boutique in San Francisco until her death from kidney failure in 2015.

Broadway and Columbus in North Beach, San Francisco (at night)

The original Condor Club closed in 2000. For a time it was a sports bar (and still is), and then a restaurant and a performance venue. The current Condor Club reopened in 2007 as “San Francisco’s Original Gentlemen’s Club” with a new neon sign.

“You know what’s funny about The Condor? 1) It’s not really a strip club until 6 pm, and 2) it has two entrances: one for the strip club, and one for a pretty unremarkable sports bar with big-picture windows facing Columbus St, a decent-enough draft beer selection, and live music. The two are separated by a small door frame with a velvet curtain drawn, so if you’re new and you make your way in through the Columbus entrance, you might not even put two and two together that you’re in a strip club. And, since we’re in the middle of North Beach, it’s exactly the kind of place a hapless tourist could wander into.” – Lauren Sloss in 2014

Big Al’s (the adult book store) closed in 2009. It is now a sandwich shop and cigar store. They kept the name and the neon sign.

Both clubs are San Francisco landmarks and an important part of the history of the city. The strip clubs of North Beach have been seen in many films and TV shows, featured on postcards and in travel and tourist brochures for over fifty years.

Chinese New Year 2019 is February 5th in the USA!
Happy Year of the Yin Brown Female Earth Pig!

“Pigs are social butterflies with friends from all walks of life.
They have a lot of support in both work and life.
They have fortunate lives and can find happiness.
They are successful later in life.
However, they aren’t the most romantic people and might need to work on that.”

Most compatible with a Pig: Tiger, Rabbit and Goat
Least compatible with a Pig: Snake and Monkey

Life is just a bowl of kumquats!

The name of the kumquat fruit comes from its Cantonese pronunciation gam kwat, which translates literally to “golden tangerine.”
The sweet fruit represents wealth and good fortune.

The Pig is the twelfth of the Chinese zodiac animals. According to myth, the Jade Emperor decided the zodiac by the order in which each animal arrived to a party. The Pig was late because he overslept, arrived last and ended up number twelve.

The Pig is yin. The Pig is associated with the Earth element and the hours 9–11 at night.
Pigs are a symbol of wealth. Fat faces and big ears are also signs of good fortune.

 

Recent past years of the Pig: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, and 2007
