The Fillmore Meets Manilatown

Across town in the Fillmore

…Yngojo Bros. Food store 1939

Russian Hill, Marina, North Beach

and Chinatown my roots

Now onto Post and Webster,,Japan town

Fliptown and Jazz Clubs

Heard of the I-Hotel—Manilatown

story…huge civic noise 1977

What’s my link to the past???

My dad once sold German shears

to Manilatown barbers.

Oh, please bring back the Bataan Cafe!!!

And let’s once again boogie with brother Al

wailing his “Jackson-Kearny Street blues”

and enjoying the cafe’s adovo and rice

special.
