I never intended to speak of the Super Bowl, post-Super Bowl, but I couldn’t help it considering where I spent my Super Bowl Sunday. Hanabi and some pals went to Hi-Tops a gay sports bar located in the Castro district. Talk about a well run sports bar, this place was on its A-game. They were packed, but neat, clean and efficient.
