HOLY HELL. Look, gang! The octopus from the old Greek Cusina downtown has popped up on Craigslist!
Greek Cusina, on SW 4th and Washington, closed down more than four years ago, in January 2010—after a blistering code fight between owner Ted Papas and then-zoning Commissioner Randy Leonard. (That code fight later spilled into a court fight.) The iconic sea beast was moved to a fancifully painted barbershop out on SW Barbur the month after.
The octopus is looking a little worse for wear these days. But the ad doesn't explain why it's got to go. It also doesn't include anything like... oh... say... contact information. Just a note that whoever shows up to kick the thing's tentacles come with their own crane.
