Closing of a San Francisco institution

Does anyone remember Sam Wo? I remember that you had to walk through the kitchen to get in and walk up a narrow winding staircase to your table.

Kids used to go accross the street and buy beer to bring in. Whether you brought beer in or not the wait staff would yell at you. It may be the years but I seem to recal going thier after a night at the Paladium (a dance club that I don’t think is even there anymore)
