Born again: Iconic Starlite shimmers anew on top of the Beacon Grand

Published March 20, 2024, in my Medium column:

Since 1928, San Francisco has sparkled and shimmered from the 21st floor of the Beacon Grand, where the iconic Starlite bar was recently reborn this winter. Formerly the historic Sir Francis Drake, the hotel underwent a massive remodel not long ago, then everyone got invited to a big reveal of the new Starlite in late January.
