The Red Monkey Lounge. Where is it?

Wow, it’s been more than a few days since my last post.  I always seem to fall behind on things when I’m in a writing project.  I’m currently  in the middle of writing a screenplay.  A comedy, which I discovered is pretty challenging.  Coincidentally, I met two stand-up comics last week, and they agreed that comedy is a tricky beast to capture.  “Kind of a hit or miss thing,” they said.  Good.  Now, I feel better.

Lately, a few readers asked a question about a specific bar (The Red Monkey Lounge) in my book, Born from Ashes.  Many San Francisco locations/businesses mentioned in my book (cafes, streets, hotels, record stores, restaurants, MTA lines, etc.) actually do exist in the non-fiction world.  They can be founded in San Francisco; however, The Red Monkey Lounge only exists in my book.  But, wait….

There is a specific bar that I had in mind when I created The Red Monkey Lounge.  It’s a neighborhood bar in the Sunset District (low-key on most nights & my go-to spot when I want a strong drink).  The other day, I passed this bar on my way to get a haircut and snapped a few pictures.

I wish that big truck wasn’t parked out front.

This pic is slightly better than the first one (not much, though).

The next time I find myself at this place, I will snap a few pictures from inside.  As I took these pictures, I had to take one of S.F. finest.

Hats off to the S.F.P.D.!  Seriously.

Luckily, I never had to speak to them after leaving the Fireside Bar (knock on wood and say a prayer).  Unfortunately, this guy wasn’t so lucky.

I think he walked away with just a warning.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I’ll be back with something new in a few days.  For more info, check out:  Watch the book trailer.

Now, go enjoy your weekend! 🙂
