John Glaser sends me a line letting me know he'll be in town in November. I tell him he should swing by the new San Francisco store to check out the digs. "Good news," he says on his arrival. "We're going to bottle your blend this coming Spring. We need to come up with artwork and a name now." We discuss the new store and the potential for increased business and selection. I mention that it's on the corner of 5th and Harrison.
"5th & Harrison?" John asks. "That sounds like an old song. Maybe that's what we should call it."
"A tribute to the new store?" I ponder.
We move forward with that idea.
