You know, I don’t think I’ve ever called our SFMTA over bad parking – it would have to be a lot worse than this…

If You Live on a Frisco Cul-de-Sac, You Can Do Anything – Take This Full-Size Basketball Hoop, For Instance

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

I’ll tell you, I wouldn’t have the stones to cement this monstrous contraption into a public sidewalk, but some people, in our Richmond District, do, obvs:

(I can just hear it: “Car…car…”)

What’d be funny is seeing another hoop installed across this avenue in somebody’s front yard, exactly 84 feet away, you know, for a full-court game. You could tip off around a manhole cover…

Note that the days of Frisco’s $13 minimum wage are numbered – $14 per hour will be the new minimum starting on July 1, 2017. (Hey, why not bring up this subject at your interview?)

Look What Our SFMTA has Done to the Geary / Masonic Hairball – “Such Lovely Trees” have All Been Given the Chop

The Tree People are not happy, even though they’ve been promised replacement trees.

I’ll tell you, I can’t exactly see how it’s even remotely possible that whatever SFGov is doing to “improve” this intersection, plus the 3000 feet of Masonic to the south down to Fell, will “transform” this area, oh well.

Anyway, the large stand of old growth street trees what used to be out in front of 5 Masonic (in the triangle where you can see the light blue Mini Cooper) will get some kind of art installation. Will that be an “improvement?” IDK, I guess, for some people.

In the meantime, things are looking pretty bleak up there at windblown Mervyn’s Heights…

Outrageousness: Six Tourists Bunking Up in Just One Room on Ocean Paying $6000 per Month?

Monday, March 6th, 2017

six bunks

This is a part of “Coliving Club Ocean,” which self-ID’s as:

  • 40 Beds
  • 9 Bedrooms
  • 6 Bathrooms

The cost to said newcomers is $998 per month, so that means that just one room is potentially generating $71,976 for somebody, or some entity, each year. And this location is by no means in any of Frisco’s typically high rent districts.

Wow.

(Hey, are these bunk beds made for adults? IDK. Hey, do they have a weight limit like, IDK, something like 165 pounds? Just asking.)

Anyway, wow
