Martin Macks New (Old) Name

As promised, Martin Mack's is changing their name.

2012 has been a big year for the Irish Pub between Ashbury and Clayton. The bar changed hands, got a facelift and a new menu, and now, they've got a new name.

Our source confirmed yesterday that the new business will be called Joplin's.

We asked them why they chose Joplin's out of all the entries, and our source said that people come in the bar expecting it to have a history, and fit in with Haight Street's 1960's nostalgia. (For reference, they've been in the 'hood since 1996.)

How do you guys feel about the new name? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
