Gold Dust Lounge Hopes Clever Song Will Help Save Popular Bar

Everyone is doing whatever they can to try to save the landmark Gold Dust Lounge, which has been booted from its Union Square home after serving nightcaps to locals and tourists since 1933. The final pour: March 6, 2012.

But while petitions to save the bar are being circulated, and lawyers are crafting their arguments to preserve the bar, some local artists are finding their own clever ways to keep this sad story alive. Catherine Hill, a 29-year-old songwriter who wishes it were 1960 again, wrote this folksy ballad, detailing bar's hapless plight.

If you care about the future of this quirky watering hole, or if you just thought the song was lovely, then sign the petition to save the coolest bar in San Francisco.
