The "Mercury News" today reports that Black Star Pirate BBQ" will shutter in November. Apparently they have lost the lease on their present location. They had a two year run which seemed to be gaining momentum. I have met and become friends with the owner Tony Carracci. Black Star Pirate BBQ was once quoted as being; " “One part New Orleans, one part old-school Haight-Ashbury.”. I will be sad to see them go.
