The Last Time I Saw Elvis


Since I moved to California I’ve come across some quaint places and things like the town of Sunol and its dog mayor, bed-racing down the town’s Main Street, and beer being served from a replica of said dog — peeing beer — at a local saloon.

In one of my recent Bay Area forays, I went across the Golden Gate Bridge in Chicken John’s bus and found Elvis in the ladies’ room at Peri’s in Fairfax. Fairfax and Peri’s aren’t exactly my cup of tea but I was there for a Quiet Lightning literature and poetry show. The bathroom at Peri’s was/is full of Elvis memorabilia. Wonder what the heck was in the men’s bathroom? Oh, northern California, you are way too much!
