Web Designer and “Girl in Tech” Kari Suleman Offers $30 for a “TaskRabbit” to Wait in Line for Her at Dottie’s True Blue CafeMonday, July 15th, 2013
“It was inevitable. make 30 bucks waiting in line at Dotties at 6th and Stevenson – https://www.taskrabbit.com/tenderloin-san-francisco/t/wait-in-line-at-dotties-for-us“
And here’s Kari‘s ad at the Task Rabbit website:
“Please wait in line for us at Dottie’s starting at 10am. Text us when you are about 20 minutes from the front (5 or so people deep). “
(“Aren’t you a good task bunny! Here, have a little* cabbage.”)
Is this the so-called Mid-Market Renaissance?
Of course, this is how the “Renaissance” got started:
“Alvin Dworman, the owner of a Market Street building proposed as the new headquarters for Twitter, gave sharply discounted office space in the same building to former Mayor Gavin Newsom’s campaign for lieutenant governor — a political contribution valued at more than $11,000, campaign finance records show.
Weeks after the gift last fall, Newsom officials aided negotiations between Twitter and Dworman by offering the Internet company a payroll tax freeze as an incentive to move into Dworman’s building, a 1 million-square-foot art deco structure at 1355 Market St. once known as the San Francisco Mart.“
*Actually, $30 seems generous to me…

And I thought most AoA-types were up in the Tenderloin.
Anyway, I didn’t realize how many art students San Francisco has these days…

Now, the news of the day is our Academy of Art University opening up some retail space 79 New Monty in the SoMA:
“We’re pleased to announce the opening of the Academy of Art University Atelier – a unique retail gallery space dedicated to showcasing the creative work of our students and alumni, where all profits will benefit the University’s Student Scholarship Fund.”
And best of all, it’s “ultra-curated,” baby. Per Carolyne Zinko and/or Cindy Ha, this new AAU joint:
“…showcases students’ work, including home decor, art, clothes for men, women and children, and jewelry. A few faculty and alumni, such as Gr.dano, are also included.”
Everybody on the scene is young, thin, and attractive so of course I fit right in. (And they looooove wearing black (lots and lots and lots of black), just like me!)

Bon courage, AoA Atelier!
