Good News, Everybody! That “$3 Million Farmhouse” at 10th and Balboa Sold for LESS Than Asking Price in 2014Friday, September 5th, 2014
Oh, wait a sec, maybe that’s BAD news – it depends on who you are.
Anyway, here’s proof that it’s possible to buy a place in Frisco for less than asking price in the Year Of Our Lord 2014:
One of the asking prices was the “lucky” number of $2,888,888.88, IIRC.
The Outer Richmond District: Where Every Day is Christmas and Every Night is New Year’s Eve – Parking on the “Lawn”Monday, July 7th, 2014
When SFGov hasn’t the will to enforce the laws and regs it enacts and you ask them about it, a govt rep will start talking about “complaint-driven” enforcement.
And that means no enforcement at all.
So feel free to pave over your front yard and then paint your brand-new parking spaces in alternating red and green, you know, to celebrate, Christmas-style:
(Actually, the most exciting time in the Outer Richmond is the evening of the Fourth of July and the morning of the Fifth of July, what with the illegal fireworks and all…)
Oh Outer Richmond:
You’ve got the biggest heart
Sometimes I think you’re just too good for me
Every day is Christmas, and every night is New Year’s Eve
Will you keep on loving me
Will you keep on, will you keep on
Bringing out the best in me?
Judgment Day is Nigh: Signs for the “Oversize Vehicle Overnight Parking Restriction Pilot” Have Been PostedThursday, June 12th, 2014
I don’t actually know if they’re enforcing the new RV parking restrictions in the Panhandle part of Golden Gate Park yet, but here are the brand-new signs, anyway:

Of course, 22 feet is pretty long – that’s enough to cover your Ford Excursions, your Chevy Suburbans and even your Maybach 62‘s. And seven feet is pretty high, so the rules seem fair enough if the goal is to kick the RV liveaboards out of the Panhandle.
But I haven’t heard or seen any RVs getting the heave-ho yet…

OMG, OMG, Here’s What the New Chipotle at Geary and Masonic Will Look Like – Lesson: Westeros Just _Loves_ Chain StoresMonday, May 19th, 2014
Here’s what it’ll look like, buried deep inside the City Centre Mall at Geary and Maosnic, you now, the former home of Sears and then Mervyn’s and now the current home of City Target West:
And speaking of chain sto’s, drink it up, Gentle Reader:
Now you’d think one person, perhaps just one solitary millionaire NIMBY, would take two minutes to register an objection, but you’d be wrong. WRONG WRONG WRONG! Not a single soul raised a peep, so here comes Chipotle to San Francisco’s District Two.
The gritty nitty from our Planning Commission.
Westeros, the West Side of Frisco, loves, just loves, chain stores, is what I’m saying.
In closing, The Mall Has It All.
And the Richmond District’s Biggest Illegal Parking Violator is … Giorgio’s Pizzeria, 151 Clement StreetWednesday, May 14th, 2014
When I come across Giorgio of Giorgio’s Pizzeria, I’ll say, “Hey Gio, how come you ain’t got no brothers up on the wall here?”
And then, regardless of the answer, I’ll follow up with a question about why he doesn’t arrange for a place to park his Prius and whatever delivery vehicles, you know, legally.

(In mitigation, this joint is a viable institution of the Richmond District and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it if you’re looking for an old-school pizza place out in the Avenues…)
Richmond District Photo Quiz: How is This Farmhouse at 10th and Balboa Worth $3 Million? OMG, I’m GobsmackedTuesday, May 13th, 2014
Here it is, the Inner Richmond farmhouse at 594 10th Avenue what’s worth $2,888,888.88 or whatever, as seen on a dread sunny day:

And oh yes, this crib is just perfect for “entertaining dignitaries.” (And then when that’s over, just head up two blocks to Geary to the prostitution sector for a “happy endings” massage to, you know, complete the soiree!)
Sometimes I just don’t know…
And I’m not objecting to the price, I’m objecting to the price for this, this monument to real estate obsolescence at this particular location. Now if you want to drag this thing northeast to a few blocks above California, well then you might have something, Climb Realty.
To reiterate, sometimes I just don’t know…
