It was like being inside a huge, noisy ameoba of well-wishers. The night was warm, the music was great and tamales were everywhere. In a neighborhood where so many things keep changing, the love affair between Virginia Ramos and the crowd at Zeitgeist is as strong as ever.

Afterward, Mission Loc@l found this sweet write-up of Ramos’ 50th birthday in the Chronicle. It was written in 2003 — eight years ago.

Is Ramos 60 now? Was she 50 back then? Does it matter? It was a beautiful night for a hootenanny. And perhaps Ramos can bend time and space, in addition to making a fine tamale.
