Book Synopsis
William "Chili Bill" Eichinger (1946-2013) was a bartender, beloved friend, orphan, underground DJ, cook, postman, martial artist, taxi driver, world traveler, wine steward, food critic, impassioned writer, and all-around champion of San Francisco culture.

In the spirit of Herb Caen, Chili penned numerous personal accounts of his beloved San Francisco, from the Summer of Love to dotcom hipster hilarity. Within, also savor rare views of his Kansas City youth amid pool room hustles, segregated high schools, and riotous James Brown shows. Take intimate walks through the mind of a curmudgeonly epicure as he soaks in the sights (and flavors) of exotic locales, like Singapore, Australia, Bali, Georgia, and Shanghai. Through it all, he exhibits a unique flair for cultural commentary, bone dry humor, and silken, cantankerous style.
