Thursday, November 5th, 2009

This was the scene last night on Sutter and Hyde in San Francisco’s Tenderloin (aka Tender Nob, aka “Theatre”) District last night just after the New York Yankees won the World Series. With all the boisterousness, passersby could tell that some kind of mayhem was afoot even from a block away.

And then when the crowd started belting out New York, New York,” well, you started to suspect that Yelp-rated Ace’s Bar just might have a New York theme.

Owners Scott and Barbi beseech you to “Get your ass to Ace’s

“With inexpensive prices and the cleanest bathrooms in the city, Aces brings the unique vibe of NY to the laid back streets of San Francisco.”

Oh, you people in the Mission District have been waiting for this. Just get some ID and something that has your name and address on it showing you live in the 94110 (or somewhere close enough to give you a colorable claim of Missionite status) and then hop on your polluting moped to get over to any of the three remaining American Apparels. Then demand your 25% discount on anything in the store until March 15, 2009

Forget the controversy, just get yourself some new clothes. Joaquin Phoenix would want you to, and plus, you’ve earned it, baby!

Just one issue remains – what to put into the empty space at 998 Valencia? How about a Starbucks? The Mission is currently under-served by Amerikkka’s favorite purveyor of caffeinated beverages. See?
