The Sainted New York Times Discovers San Francisco’s Corrupt Twitterloin: “Western SoMa Area of San Francisco Is Resurgent”

Leave us begin:

“NEAR the corner of Mission and Seventh Streets in San Francisco on a recent Sunday, a woman and her 30-something son sidestepped two scruffy men passed out against the side of a building. “This is where the restaurant is?” she asked skeptically, turning to her son, who was taking her to brunch at the recently opened AQ (1085 Mission; 415-341-9000; aq-sf.com).”

But, IRL, this current Mid Market resurgence dates back to the “sharply discounted office space” given to former Mayor Gavin Newsom, does it not? Actually, I think I read about it in the aforementioned New York Times.

All right, see you in the resurgent Mid-Market, when I’m not vacationing from San Francisco in the bleak Outer Sunset
