The Black
5017 Newport Avenue, Ocean Beach

Black light will reveal toxic mold in your bathroom, illuminate your pet reptile in the dark, and expose forgeries in documents. But most folks want to get a luminous blast from their black velvet paintings, show off fluorescent pen markings on their faces, or reveal secret messages written in Woolite. A flashlight ($14.95) is fine for finding reptiles. Black velvet paintings require an 18-inch, 20-watt fluorescent bulb ($34.95). Tell the Black's staff how big your painting is so they can give you the correct wattage for maximum effect.
