You weren't hallucinating about Magnolia Thunderpussy Desserts. I recall hearing their radio spots on old KMPX and later in the early days of KSAN. When those ads first aired I thought they were satire by improv groups the Congress of Wonders or the Pitschell Players. You can more find info here:

Ah, yes the Old Spaghetti Factory, The Hippo and Melís on Geary. Great places long gone but not forgotten. I remember seeing Tom Donahue, speaking of KMPX, and a very dapper Gore Vidal chowing down at The Hippo.
