That was the windup, now here’s the pitch.
They look almost ready to open at this star-crossed building what’s been shut down for years and years, IIRC.
Oh, the Seattle location has surprisingly low Yelp rating, IMO.

Here’s All What’s Left of 1994’s Giant “Gold Mountain” Mural at Romolo Place in North Beach – GraffitiThursday, July 21st, 2016
First, the giant mural of Romolo was all like this:
But now it’s all like this – I haven’t been through this way since it got painted over, thusly:
“I’m done with them. That’s why the mural is painted over,” Sherry said. She said that during the 2004 restoration, which took almost a year, she worked on the mural six days a week for almost a year and was only compensated for transportation and lunch. “It was an absolute nightmare,” she said. “All they could pay me was coming out of their poor little pockets, so I accepted it because at the time I could afford to take a lot of time to do this. … So I basically just did the work, and they let it go to hell again.
There was a theory that murals discourage graffiti. I don’t know well that theory worked out…
A Hater’s Guide to the San Francisco Geography of Pixar’s “Inside Out” – Realistic Enough, But a Sort of Generic SFTuesday, June 23rd, 2015
Did I say “hater?” Nah, that’s not the case, as Inside Out is a fine film. But as far as far as portraying a realistic San Francisco, it’s no Big Hero Six.
Let’s get the Lloyd Bentsen-style sanctimony out of the way – let me school this new movie:
Inside Out, I served with Big Hero Six.
I knew Big Hero Six.
Big Hero Six was a friend of mine.
Inside Out, you are no Big Hero Six.
Now we’ll deal with IO’s moving-to-Frisco scenes.
1. Golden Gate Bridge seen from Marin County – This view is all kinds of messed up, IIRC, and I do.
2. Looking up at GGB from its roadbed – Perfect, almost photorealistic.
3. Foot of Market Street near the Ferry Building. – Perfectly fine.
4. 1000 block of Lombard Street – Cars are too small – it’s never that crowded, actually.
5. Red cable car #25 on Hyde Street? – A generic view, but pretty good.
6. 21 Royal Street, San Francisco, CA 94109 – Well, if you’re on the unit (000) block of an alley that goes up a hill and across a regular street to continue on to the 100 block of the very same alley, well, I think we’re out of luck.
Here’s the alley. The telephone pole and blue Recology garbage / recycling can are true-to-life:
Now here’s the real-life 21 Allen – it’s as close as I can find.
(Let’s not get into driving and parking – the driver does about average, considering he just blew into town.)
So that’s it – Inside Out shows SF well, but it’s not up to the level of other efforts.
(And oh, speaker of haters, they unloaded gallons of Hater-Ade upon poor, poor Cars 2:
“The (mostly false) narrative after that was that Pixar got sequel happy and the quality dipped. Cars 2 was as much a passion project for John Lasseter as a merchandising cash cow, and the film did earn $559m worldwide despite lousy reviews and a low (for Pixar) $191m domestic total.”
Cars 2 is awesome, compared with what people say about poor poor Cars 2. Oh well.)
Well, here it is, from the Bing Maps:
(IDK, this is less offensive than “Uptown Tenderloin,” one supposes, you know, coming from San Francisco’s non-profit profiteers.)
French Quarter sounds a bit, grandiose?
Here’s the cure, as usual, from wilds of the Internet:
“Ha. No one here knows by that name. There’s not a distinct boundary for the collection of French-serving restaurants and businesses near the French Consulate, the church and school of Notre Dame des Victoires on Bush Street. But apparently it’s been dubbed by some hotel marketing person as the “French Quarter.” Belden Alley and Claude Alley intersect with Bush Street, and each have some French cafes. On Bush/Grant Ave. is the Cafe de la Presse — a coffee house with French and international newspapers, and restaurant. There’s Cafe Claude on Claude and some other bistros. Plouf! is an excellent mussel house on Belden…”
All right, keep on Binging, Microsoft.
The Perpetually Wet and Smelly Alley Behind the Michelin-Starred Michael Mina Restaurant Gets a Boost from This FellowThursday, February 19th, 2015
Let’s call this place 50 Halleck, 94111.
Hurray. Hurray for Halleck!
I’ll say this – Auto Row aint what it used to be.
