SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The Lucky Penny on Masonic Street in San Francisco, which has been a late night favorite since the 1960s, has served its last meal.
Patrons who held the diner in nostalgic regard came to record their last memory of the place. The Lucky Penny was scheduled to be open until 2 p.m. but closed hours earlier to the disappointment of many regulars.
“You know if you’re going to close up shop on Christmas Eve, you’re probably just going to close up shop and go home and enjoy it just like everyone else,” customer Laef Barnes said. “I can’t blame them, but I wish I could have got one last meal in.”
The Lucky Penny will be demolished and replaced with condominiums.
