What might have been the last Republican stronghold disappeared from San Francisco when the Jones Roadhouse shuttered this month. During last year’s election, democrats held parties all over the city to support Barack Obama, but only one tiny watering hole, wedged up in the Marina right by the Presidio, staunchly hosted the city’s seven or eight republicans in cheering on John McCain. On November 4, the bar and grill hosted the quietest election night party in town as republicans watched their candidate deliver his concession speech. The SF Weekly even reported on the glum proceedings attended by Dana Walsh, the republican who challenged Nancy Pelosi last year. Now that it’s closed, bought out by the team behind Bin 38, it’s unclear where the local republicans will gather for future. Fortunately, they’ve got until November to decide.
