Things to do in San Francisco - Part 24 - Vesuvio
This quirky and colorful landmark is still a gathering place for the "mad ones", just as it was in the 1950's!
Yahoo Travel says this about Vesuvio:
Above the colorful stained-glass windows of this 1950s beatnik haunt reads the mantra: "We are itching to get away from Portland, Oregon," and the names of the North Beach underground, the "mad ones," are drawn in cement near the cafe's front door. Such echoes of SF's literary history, along with an unbeatable second-story view of the colorful crux of Broadway and Columbus, bring a mixed bag of writers, artists and tourists to drink where Kerouac & Co., the aforementioned "mad ones" once did.
