How to Cross Fulton in the Avenues as a Pedestrian: Act Like You are a Jaywalker, Whether You are or Not

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Let me explain. Bro here crossed all willy-nilly, which isn’t illegal at all, but it’s dangerous because he didn’t get a buy in from all the drivers. See?

All these cars were moving with the exception of the black car on the left. The white truck in the fast lane should have stopped but didn’t.

What I’d suggest is waiting for a break in traffic first, as if you were a jay walker.

And the bigger suggestion would be to put traffic lights on Fulton.

Of course our SFMTA has no interest in doing that.

Oh well.

Geary: A Tea House Next to a A Tea House Next to a A Tea House

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

As seen way out in the Avenues:

The middle one there I guess could be described as a dessert house, but they serve an awful lot of tea and they have a teapot as a logo.

(Speaking of Geary, you know, if that Geary “BRT” project is so great, you’d think the local Supervisor would be behind it 100%, but I don’t think she is. Who’s paying for the BRT, do we know that? And how much are they paying, like per person? Seems as if the cheerleaders for this joint don’t know/don’t care. Oh well…)

Infamous “MISSING (NOT STOLEN)” Trials Bike Found, Sort Of – On Top of a Saab in the Western Addition

Monday, June 6th, 2016

You wouldn’t believe how many light post signs that could be seen all over town last month, advertising this bike.

And look, here it is, east of the Northeast of the Panhandle Area (NoPA) – aka our Western Addition. Seen coming…

Another Fixer-Upper in the Richmond: Golden Onion Domes of the Russian Orthodox Holy Virgin Cathedral Shrouded by Scaffolding

Those domes have real gold on the outside, as real as the gold flakes on the highly regrettable Big 5-0 Sausage from our highly regrettable Bay Area Super Bowl 50.

Our Holy Virgin Cathedral at 6210 Geary will be back in shape in now time, I’m sure.
