As many as a thousand Hells Angels could fill the Bay Area today as they pay their final respects to Mark "Papa" Guardado, their SF leader. Guardado, if you recall, was murdered on September 2 outside Dirty Thieves. (The Treat Street bar will remain closed today in honor of this and other spats of violence in the Mission.)
Police officers will be out in "full force" to maintain the scene. The a funeral is scheduled for this morning/early afternoon at Duggan's Serra Mortuary in Daly City, with the burial happening at Cypress Lawns in Colma. No word yet if there will be some sort of massive hog ride through SF later today. We can only hope.
Also, Christopher Ablett, 35, a member of the Angels' rivals, Mongols Motorcycle Club, who is accused of killing Guardado, is still at large. If you've seen him, call the police. Or, you know, run for your life.
