Okay, well, Thee Parkside isn’t necessarily paradise, but we’re sure that wherever paradise is, it has bands, beer and free Sunday oyster barbecues. Meanwhile, Thee Parkside, which also has those things, apparently has a bit of a rough side, too.
From the Examiner:
Two minutes before midnight, the suspect, described as a 25-year-old black male, walked into Thee Parkside on 17th and Wisconsin streets brandishing a gun.
The suspect ordered all customers to the floor and went to the bartender demanding money from the register, according to San Francisco police. After the bartender complied, the suspect went to the customers, robbing them and fleeing with an unknown amount of money, police said.
We bet he didn’t say, “All right everybody be cool, this is a robbery,” etc., and then have Dick Dale’s Miserlou come up in the background, but we kind of wish he did.
