My name is Dennis Cruz and the Attitude Adjustment Hour has been a pet project of mine for years.
I was born and raised in San Francisco, a city which, at one time, had the densest bar-to-population of any city in the U.S. Over the years, I learned to appreciate the pleasures of that neighborhood pub and the camaraderie and good times offered inside.
As a longtime Radio producer and on-air loudmouth, this blog lets me spew my personal thoughts on bars, saloons, honky-tonks and pubs (not to mention pizza parlors, BBQ shacks and burger joints) that I have visited, in the Bay Area and beyond.
The City is rapidly changing, evolving from the Blue Collar town that it once was into a place that my grandfather wouldn’t recognize. But change has been one of the staples in the life of the City by the Bay. I hope that my posts will spark memories of those who were fortunate enough to grow up here.
I’ll share some of the things that made me love San Francisco, and hopefully inspire you to search out some of the history behind the bars and saloons and restaurants that made it great.
The posts are my humble opinions, and I’ll no doubt I’ll miss some of your favorites. I welcome and encourage your feedback and suggestions. Please don’t hesitate to post comments. And, for a daily dose, you can visit and “like” my Facebook page by clicking HERE!
