The SFPD Cracks Down on 40′s of Beer in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle, Our New Dolores Park

Monday, April 4th, 2011

(Well, maybe if hundred times more people started hanging out in the Panhandle would it become like Dolores Park. And maybe if it were ever sunny and warm instead of foggy and cold…)

For the Panhandle, this counts as Heavy Police Action.

As seen over the tweekend…

Cold busted!

And all the while, a behatted man played the clarinet:

Come To The Panhandle when DP is just too warm and too sunny and too filled up with young people…

“Nuisance Alcohol,” What’s That? Whatever, CVS Won’t Sell It in the Outer Richmond – No 40′s, No 4Loko, No Malts, No Nothing

Monday, November 15th, 2010

I don’t know, CVS Pharmacy. I think you all have been talking to NIMBYs too much when your PR people start bandying about recently-invented terms likenuisance alcohol.

Here’s what I mean – let’s review the plans for the former Fog Belt North Albertsons, that brokedown palace out there at 32nd and Clement, the place that will soon be a combo CVS / Fresh & Easy gro sto, per the always-reliable Richmond District Blog:

CVS will not pursue permission to sell hard liquor at this location. CVS will pursue permission to sell beer and wine only. Per CVS company-wide policy, CVS does not sell malt liquor, singles or other nuisance alcohol.

“Nuisance alcohol?” Is this your phrase now?

Hey, you know what kind of people are maybe more than a nuisance? How about white people who live out in the Avenues but go downtown to drop $400 on wine and dinner and then head home via the Western Addition?

Can wine be a “nuisance alcohol” too, CVS?

P.S. The NIMBY groups you’ve been talking to only represent themselves. What about the 99% of Richmond District people who don’t belong to any NIMBYhood association? What do they think?
