Rock Stars in the Tenderloin

Summer activities in The City in the late 1960s included many rock ‘n roll concerts. Today, rock bands still visit San Francisco. It’s no secret that they like a place called the Phoenix Hotel, with a “tropical 1950s motor court architecture” vibe on Eddy Street at Larkin. And yes, there is an outdoor swimming pool in the middle of The City at the Phoenix –

On October 11, the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation is producing the “19th Annual Celebrity Pool Toss Party” at the Phoenix to raise money for the TNDC After School Program. I am on the committee again. Check out my “Compassion” Web page.

If you want to bump into rock stars, or watch people get pushed in the pool for charity, the Phoenix is the place for you.

Best wishes,
