Via SF photographer James Corrigan, who says:
“Give me 146.6 inches of curb space in the Inner Sunset and I will find you parking. Advertisement for the Mini-Cooper.”
Co-opting The Mission Burrito sure takes a long time, huh?
Artist’s conception of what the mighty sign on Masonic will look like, sooner or later:
Appears as if Panera Bread will win the race to further chainify the Western Addition…
And it looks like not a single soul in the world will raise a voice against the Chipotle chain coming to 2675 Geary.

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.
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?
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…

After all, Safety First – you can’t be too careful out there on the mean streets* of San Francisco.
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.
