RUSSIAN HILL HANDYMAN Co. | Closed thru 10/18

With the Blues in town this weekend, Hardly Strictly happening in the park, Syracuse’s last visit to Piscataway the following weekend, and a use-it-or-lose it ticket to New York on United burning a hole in my pocket, I’m closing up shop for a week in October and getting some much needed rest. The only reason I mention it here is to let you know that we won’t be responding to any new customer inquiries until after we reopen on Thursday, October 18th. Our Contact Us page remains active, however new customer inquiries during our absence will go without replies or response; if you want to get a hold of us, we ask that you contact us after our return. I sincerely apologize for the not being able to provide service or referrals for the next two weeks, but hope that your work can await our return closer to the end of the month.

RUSSIAN HILL HANDYMAN Co. | 5 Apr. ’12

5 April 2012

While we await the cease-and-desist letter from the Mental Assassin’s people for using his likeness on our site to celebrate Opening Day (the Giants are traveling today for their upcoming start of the season — tomorrow — against the D-Backs in Phoenix, where I hear it is a dry heat), I do want to credit Kelley Cox for the above photo, which is reproduced without his permission, but for no personal gain — other than to source gigs from fellow Giants fans in and around Russian Hill.

I was at the final exhibition game against the As yesterday and had a difficult time dealing with the fact that it’s been 12 years since I sat in the park for the first game ever played adjacent to McCovey Cove, an exhibition tilt against the Yankees in 2000. One All-Star Game, two World Series, and one Championship Trophy later, it’s safe to say that I lead the city in all-time Sheboygan Brats consumed per inning (min. 20 games) by a right hander.

It’s a safe bet that no one really cares about any of that, so let’s get to the skinny — the schedule is FULLY BOOKED through the week of the 9th, which means that we are currently booking appointments for the week of April 16th and beyond. We do have occasional cancellations that make appointments available before those dates, so please send us your information via our Contact Page and we’ll be happy to put you into our “first available” cancellations queue if you’re looking for a date next week.
