I FUCKING LOVE RUBY SKYE. They always have the greatest electro/house DJ's and they are always spinning really great hits and (so far...) I've noticed that the bartenders are pretty nice. Their sound system is fucking loud I swear 20 years from now I'm going to tell my children I lost my hearing at the age of 22 from partying too much at Ruby Skye. Why 3 stars then? They hold up the lines like crazy and the venue isn't that nice. They need to open up the bars that they have downstairs and also, the restrooms are fucking filthy. An update on the faces of the gogo dancers would be great too. -Binh "pottymouth" V.

Probably my least favorite aquarium in the U.S. It's so utterly commercial -- looks more like a shopping mall with all the sponsorships (Home Depot, UPS, etc.). The sharks and whales were bad ass, but for $27, I wished for more aquatic life.

The re-birth and untimely death of Bruno's. We were so happy to see it back... shuffling in with smiles and high expectations, and darting out with disappointment, despair, and a sudden realization that the Mission is becoming a very bad place. We got out of there as soon as we could after trying some appetizers off the horribly run-of-the-mill new menu. Let's review, shall we? The french fries and Korean ribs were obviously sourced on the cheap and were not even bar-food good. Oh how we miss the appetizers of the former Bruno's... where did that chef go? The music sounded like it was mixed by a bad iPod Shuffle, and it did not fit the decor at all. Why did they get rid of the double sided bar and the booths? WTF were they thinking? The place looks more like you would find peanut shells on the floor then the cool retro/mod place of old. The new owners are complete idiots for not realizing what they had... but I am sure they will make a lot of money from the unaware Medjool crowd imported from the Marina. Good-bye Bruno's! ps - ignore any reviews of Bruno's before August 2006, as they refer to another world, another place, another sound... or was it just a dream?
