How Sacramento Handles Letter Grades in Restaurant Windows – And How the GGRA Doesn’t Want It, At All

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Here’s how Sack-Town does it:


You can see the three varieties in the bottom of the image. This is some pretty weak tea.

Fun Diego has a much better approach – real letter grades.

And Frisco, well, the Golden Gate Restaurant Association thinks all its members are above average, so it hasn’t deigned to allow SFGov to impose a letter grade requirement on food places in the 415. So why does the GGRA have such pull? IDK, that’s just the way things are.

Balboa Dip, Two Angles

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Who says The Richmond is boring?


This is, and has been, a thing – see?


Hey, should these two blocks be on the Strava? Well, since there’re stop signs at the bottom of the dip, the answer is NO. Unless the “King of the Mountain” can actually stop, wait for any cross traffic to clear and then climb up to the next intersection in just 13 seconds…

I’ve never seen two cruise ships together thusly, but I guess this kind of thing happens from time to time:


Walmart has a Deal for You: A Mountain Bike with Disk Brakes for Just $77

Monday, October 17th, 2016

Did I say disc brakes? I meant to say disc brake, as there’s only one on this ride – a setup I’ve never seen before:


I’m sure this ride is a little heavy, but you can’t beat $77.

I’ll have to tell you about these kinds of bikes, sometime…
