The award for the best maintained neon sign in The Castro goes to the Patio Cafe... or what was the Patio Cafe. Yes, it's been a long time since anyone enjoyed a meal at this Castro institution. I think it's been 8 years or so. Lots of fits and starts. But then, that's no surprise as it's owned by that much-loved character and Sarah Winchester of Castro Street, Les Natali. Look for the opening sometime in Spring of 2012!
