I finally figured out how to talk about cruising without talking about Rosie O'Donnell...

It's the songs they play when you're cruising the video booths at the Nob Hill Theatre, they go something like this...

She's so fine, there's no telling where the money went. She's all mine, there's no other way to go. If you wanna buy me flowers, just go ahead now. If you wanna talk for hours, just go ahead now. My love runs cold, my memory has just been sold -- our love's in jeopardy, baby. Ooooh… ooh ooh ooh. Runaway train, never going back -- wrong way on a one-way track. For the line, love isn't always on time. Oh… oh… oh. You drive us wild, we'll drive you crazy. Too many sleepless nights -- I'll be there for you. And baby you're all that I want, when you're lying here in my arms -- we're in heaven.

Is it really spelled like the British "theatre" instead of the American "theater"?

Oh the Nob Hill.....I remember going there (the first time) with my bf not long after I moved to SF from Indy -- and having way too much attention paid to me by the "performer" was my first brush with latin jealousy!!!!!!!!!

Alex, isn't that hilarious? Yes, it is spelled like the British -- how sophisticated, indeed!

You’d think that connection would be easier to create with Bryan Adams playing in the background!
