I guess the Safeway people have resolved not to put any more money into the La Playa store, and that makes sense considering that The Future is just around the corner.

The current set-up is straight outta the 1970′s and it looks it, for better or worse – it’s shabby-chic but without the chic:

No matter, Safeway La Playa is the place people hit for bonfire wood and cheap beer before heading out to an evening at Ocean Beach, and that will always be true.

Twas ever thus.

The “Proud Whopper!” – Wow, Burger King Goes Full Rainbow for Pride 2014 – “WE ARE ALL THE SAME INSIDE”

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

These “Proud Whoppers” are still on sale in the 415 / 628?

Yes, down at 1200 Market Street at 8th and Larkin and Grove, across the street from the Main Public Library

Delicious!

Vox Populi: 

“I think this wrapper means we all have the same rights,” a young child explains.

Imagine that – the journey from street crime to high art took merely a half-year…
