I’ve never seen this:
“T3 Motion” Electric Standup Vehicle from Challenge Security.
They’re hiring, but you need your own gun.
It’s mostly video these days, not photography per se:
Get your own, here
I’m taking things slow here. Peasant Pies is gone from 303 Sacramento. In its place is this joint with no seating. This is a real business registered with SFGov.
Now, check out the asking prices. If you want to go hog-wild, you can order UNI plus rice for $40 to $200(!) – click on the photo to see the prices. Is this meant for more than one person? IDK. I’m not sure how many servings of sea urchin gonads plus rice you’d get. Isn’t this a lot of money for lunch? (In mitigation, you can wash down your meal with a can of soda, for just $1 more.)
I’m not sure if they’re suggesting the seafood is flown in from Japan or if this place is just similar to a Japanese fish market. I’ll tell you, there was a Yoshinoya fast food donburi place what tried to make a go of it about a block away from here. They served inexpensive “beef bowls,” like something a taxi driver would eat on break. They didn’t last long.
But this place is different – it’s expensive, and all seafood AFAICS. It’s not at all on social media AFAIK. It’s terra incognita, foodies!
Have at it.
As seen on Steiner in the Western Addition:
Definitely seeing more of these red scooters parked on the streets of San Francisco lately, for better or worse. That’s just my observation.
It’s time to take a look at what the peanut gallery has to say.
‘Bout what I expected – seems as if “range anxiety” was/is the big issue.
Oh, a new pricing scheme…
Here’s the sign:
And here’s the program.
And here’s what Yelp has to say.
I didn’t know about this deal- now I know why people are lining up to get into the Golden Gateway Garage before it opens on Saturday mornings.
Seems like a good deal for those who want to while away the hours in C-Town on a Saturday…
I think I was on-campus, you know, down in The Valley, back in aught thirteen when I saw my first post-collegiate tech bro* getting about on an electric unicycle.
Of course now it’s ought sixteen and these things have spread to Frisco’s Financh. But this tech bro is a true master. He’s got his hands in the pockets of his cargo shorts!
A quick jog around a load of boxes and then we’re off, to The Future:
Of course we might be heading the in the wrong direction, on the wrong side of the street, like literally, but nevertheless, we’re off to The Future.
*One time I called a late 30’s tech bro a tech bro and he got all pissed off, saying how he has kids in the SFUSD and so ergo, he couldn’t be a tech bro. But he works at Box! So I’m still thinking he’s a tech bro. I don’t think there’s an age cut-off…
[UPDATE: Herb Caen eventually recanted re: the Frisco Issue – see Comments. Or here’s the short version:“Balderdash,” Caen wrote. “The toughest guys on the old S.F. waterfront, neither rubes nor tourists, called it Frisco, and no effete journalist would have tried to correct them.”]
“Person that comes to your house to remove your used AA batteries because you’re too lazy to ‘dispose of them properly.'”
Here you go – they’ll come right to your place for pickup if you put your used batteries in a baggie:
“Curbside Battery Recycling Service – Most residents may place their batteries in a sealed plastic bag taped to the top of their black bin for curbside collection.”
This baggie system is news to me, as I’m accustomed to the Big Orange Bucket:
“Residents of multi-unit homes (4 units or more) should place batteries in their Orange Battery Bucket. If your building does not have one, ask your building manager to order one at (415) 330-1300. For more information on battery recycling, please visit: SFEnvironment.org/ecofinder
So who says our local garbage monopoly is all bad?
*As opposed to the actual Elon Musk. I’ll tell you, BEM is much cheaper for us than the real deal:
OTOH, where’s the battery if this rig is all-electric? I know not.
Compare all this with a legal all-electric bike rider ebikefan, whose mellow gets harshed by a mean-spirited hippie:
Success continues to elude the A2B electric bike people. I’ll tell you, most of the people in town you see on these e-bikes are somehow affiliated with the company itself, believe it or not. Something like $5000 is too too much for what these bikes are, but the other problem is that I wouldn’t want one if they gave me one for free.* I suppose if you’d paid me to ride one about and take charge of its safekeeping and lug it up and down stairs, well then I’d think about it. And if I accepted your deal, I’d be just like most of the other A2Ber’s in town, like, apparently, ebikefan, getting paid to operate an A2B…
*So don’t give me this oh, well, if you can’t afford a premium bike stuff. An A2B might be fun for Jay Leno to collect and have to gather dust in one of his garages (I’m seriously, I think he has one), but there’s a reason why they’re not popular…
