S.F. House Where Janis Joplin Hung Out Now Goes For $1.3 Million, Does Not Include Mercedes-Benz
In the San Francisco of the '60s, you could walk around naked, eat for free, sleep for free, get drugs for free, and have sex with whoever you wanted, whenever you wanted, all while totally bombed on drugs you didn't pay for. And you'd probably encounter some super-famous musicians while you were doing it (or them).

Alas, that is not our San Francisco.
In our San Francisco, modest three-bedroom houses known for having once hosted an iconic '60s libertine sell for millions of dollars to people who (most likely) not give away their drugs or their bodies. Sigh. Bernalwood brings us news of the pending sale of a local Victorian this week -- a house where Janis Joplin once partied -- the asking price for which is a cool $1.3 million. It looks like a nice house, and if we had $1.3 million we might consider living there. But only if the sellers would also throw in a Mercedes-Benz for that price. Or maybe a "Porschee." Or at least some good drugs.
