I remember Magnolia Thunderpussy's late night cafe on Haight and Masonic (now Magnolia Pub) - way back in the very late 60's - early 70's she also had a delivery service my high school friends and I would order the "Chili Magnolia" and the "Montana Banana" - and a real bona-fide hippie would deliver it straight to your house!! Magnolia Thunderpussy herself was a very large woman full of good cheer, although the name has now been co-opted by several different enterprises that you can find on the web. I had heard through a friend that the original Magnolia Thunderpussy moved to Point Arena, California.
