Historic San Francisco Bay Area Sports Bar ’7 Mile House’ Celebrates 160th Anniversary by Offering Complimentary Adobo All Day to Thank Customers


Brisbane, CA (PRWEB) February 04, 2013

7 Mile House Sports Bar & Grill, one of the oldest bars in the San Francisco Bay Area and the only “mile house” left standing in its original location, is celebrating 160 years of business since it opened its doors in 1853. The venue’s transformation from stagecoach stop, pony express route, brothel, biker and trucker hangout, and infamous sports gambling den to a lively sports bar and live music venue demonstrates 7 Mile House’s resilience through the decades.

“It’s an honor to preserve the history of 7 Mile House and celebrate 160 years of this establishment’s endurance through the ups and downs of the economy,” Vanessa Garcia Villacarlos, owner of 7 Mile House, said. “We’re proud to have become a place for sports fans to cheer on our home teams, and provide a space to support local musicians and entertainers.”

“7 Mile House has brought attention to our city, bringing visitors to our area, and serves us well as the gateway into Brisbane. Owner Vanessa Garcia Villacarlos and her crew have turned around this historic gem by revitalizing the venue, and more importantly, the community that surrounds it,” Clarke Conway, City of Brisbane Mayor Pro Tem, said.

The historic restaurant will celebrate this important milestone of Bay Area history by serving one of its most popular items on the menu, pork adobo with rice, for free from noon to 7 p.m. on Feb. 6 (while supplies last). 7 Mile House is also giving away a commemorative anniversary T-shirt to the first 100 patrons. Customers will also enjoy live entertainment during the day, featuring popular party band, LP Band, and karaoke hosted by locally acclaimed karaoke jockey Glenny Kravitz from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.

For more information about 7 Mile House, call 415-992-1428, view the sports bar on the Web at http://www.7milehouse.com or visit 2800 Bayshore Blvd. in Brisbane. 7 Mile House is also available on Twitter at http://twitter.com/7milehouse and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/7milehouse

About 7 Mile House Sports Bar & Grill

Along the perimeters of three Bay Area cities: San Francisco, Brisbane and Daly City, a new (yet historic) restaurant and bar has quickly emerged as the best spot to dine and be entertained on this side of the Bay Area. Established in 1853, 7 Mile House is a family restaurant and bar serving a unique mix of homestyle Italian/American/Filipino food and prides itself as a premier live entertainment venue and neighborhood sports bar. A good mix of great food, fun atmosphere, sports and musical entertainment draws a diverse, family-oriented crowd – a far cry from its 160 years of ‘colorful’ history.

Comparison Shopping is the Best Way to get Cheap Car Insurance

Driving around city, seeing Television, listening to the radio, flipping through magazines, assessing your email – if you do these issues you will likely see several ads for auto insurance. Many of these adverts will claim that you can get ridiculously cheap car insurance, and they make it seems really attractive. Nevertheless, car insurance is substantially more than just a bill that’s due every month.

When you go into a collision, or your vehicle is broken in other modes, you can easily be faced with hundreds of dollars in fixes and medical bills. Most folks do not have this type of cash laying about, and this is why insurance is significant. There are several different kinds of automobile insurance coverage, and commonly you will be competent to choose an amount for each sort. For example, one kind of auto insurance coverage is liability insurance. When you select liability insurance, you will be competent to choose an sum such as $25,000, $50,000 or more. This is exactly why it’s a great notion to get as much coverage as you can afford – ,000 might appear like more than enough to replace a vehicle, but there could be multiple vehicles included and a wide variety of other expenses (medical bills, funeral costs, etc).

Finding Affordable Car Insurance

Unfortunately, more car insurance policy means a higher-priced premium. There are a few things you can do – such as selecting just the needed coverage, deciding a higher deductible, and avoiding extra gains – to lower your prices. However, comparison shopping is the greatest way to save cash each month, for many motives:

- Provides you a great thought regarding exactly what a large, low, and typical premium will be.

- The more quotes you locate the more businesses you are uncovered to.

- This means you’ve got more chances to get the cheapest cost.

- You may see which insurance agencies give the most price reductions, and also the most that you’re certified for.

The easiest strategy to comparison shop is on-line. Here-you have access to hundreds of car insurance firms. You just have to go to their sites and enter your advice. You’ll be given a free, no obligation estimate that you can use to compare that car insurance business against others. The only thing to always remember is to examine coverage first, and then cost, using a free estimates platform e.g. http://compare-insurers.com. You could find a policy for a month and one for 0, but the coverage does not actually insure much at all, meaning the 0 policy is the finest deal.

In case you have queries over which form of insurance you should pick, don’t hesitate to call an broker immediately.
