between the Rock and the Hard Rock Cafe lies the lifeless remains of Planet
Hollywood. It's no secret that San Francisco is not immune from international
mega chain tourist traps. The City's branch of the TV-and-movie-memorabilia
theme restaurants fronted by Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Demi Moore
and Arnold Schwarzenegger spent the '90s on Stockton Street at Market.
Countless grand champion tourists left here with the holy
grail of crap. Planet Hollywood left its mark on pop culture with the
rise of theme restaurants that followed in the wake of its early success.
