I never knew that Holly H had an oven. Or ate anything!

Oh my god, I just remember those cloth dolls of Holly Hobbie in pioneer outfits...calico. And those ugly plates.

I had an easy bake oven and I LOVED it.

Oh my god, I always wanted a Holly Hobbie Oven!!!! My evil parents wouldn't spend the money.... bastards. Though I DID have a Holly Hobbie bedspread, canopy and my mother cross-stitched a few prints for the wall.

Okay, I take back the "bastards" comment.

Oh I would have been jealous too - my rich friend (who lived next door, had a pony and a pool)had a Holly Hobbie sewing machine.

I had no pony, no pool and a Holly Hobbie-themed waste paper basket!

My older sister had one of those and I was so jealous, my mom wouldn't let me touch it.

My older sister had one too. It was yellow, I remember it well. My sister LOVED it and made sweet smelling cakes in her bedroom.

I never got to use it. "Too young" they said.

By the time she outgrew it and it came to me, it was all busted up and didn't work. :(

Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.

The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
