Farewell Favorites: Planet Hollywood
Somewhere 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.
