18th Street bar closes before it opens, now Toad Hall

I guess I haven’t been paying enough attention, because I totally missed (until yesterday) the fact that the “bar formerly known as The Pendulum” is now being branded as Toad Hall.  All that marketing money and focus group time that went into the previous choice – 18th Street Bar – is out the window and blowing down the street with the rest of the trash.  And the “Pride” awning done in hideous hues is gone with the 18 Street name, replaced with an awning sporting the Toad Hall moniker and a more subdued palette of browns and light blues.  Was that awning created for the filming of Milk by any chance?
