“It was inevitable. make 30 bucks waiting in line at Dotties at 6th and Stevenson – https://www.taskrabbit.com/tenderloin-san-francisco/t/wait-in-line-at-dotties-for-us“
And here’s Kari‘s ad at the Task Rabbit website:
“Please wait in line for us at Dottie’s starting at 10am. Text us when you are about 20 minutes from the front (5 or so people deep). “
(“Aren’t you a good task bunny! Here, have a little* cabbage.”)
Is this the so-called Mid-Market Renaissance?
Of course, this is how the “Renaissance” got started:
“Alvin Dworman, the owner of a Market Street building proposed as the new headquarters for Twitter, gave sharply discounted office space in the same building to former Mayor Gavin Newsom’s campaign for lieutenant governor — a political contribution valued at more than $11,000, campaign finance records show.
Weeks after the gift last fall, Newsom officials aided negotiations between Twitter and Dworman by offering the Internet company a payroll tax freeze as an incentive to move into Dworman’s building, a 1 million-square-foot art deco structure at 1355 Market St. once known as the San Francisco Mart.“
*Actually, $30 seems generous to me…
(You know, praying that that percentage doesn’t drop too much further.)
Well, read the news and turn the pages. Here’s an recent ouchy from the HuffPo’s Aaron Sankin:
Whoops, how could that be?
Now let’s hear from Ron Russell of the Bay Area Observer. Just yesterday he pointed us to a couple things:
“…marks the departure of one of the best-known companies, with a global brand, from the city where it was born…”
“Social media companies and other tech companies are competing for space in San Francisco,” said Edward Del Beccaro, managing director with Transwestern Real Estate. “So other companies have to consider whether to renew their leases in San Francisco or look for other locations.”
Oh, and look at who else is leaving town. That’s right it’s the San Francisco 49ers:
Justin Herman Plaza, September 12th, 2012 - enjoy your weekend and then check out Homecoming 2012 this Sunday at 5:20 PM - this is a game you won’t want to miss – Detroit Lions. (I think I prefer the older uniforms, actually. Moving on…)
So, I’m struggling to understand how the City Family’s all-knowing, all-seeing Dear Leader Ed Lee, whose primary qualification for getting appointed appears to have been pleasing Willie Brown whether Willie Brown was doing something good or Willie Brown was doing something bad, is so obviously steering us in the right direction.
Will Twitter (the so-called “Mid-Market phenomenon”) ever employ 6000 souls in San Francisco? Hells no. So why do we base our planning around that prediction?
That’s the kind of thing I think about these days.
All right, enjoy your brekky at the Hilton, everybody, while I wonder who writes stuff like this:
“Cranes are in the air, office and residential towers are rising and San Francisco’s real estate market is red hot!”
“Join us for your tour of San Francisco’s future!”
Ooh, I have one too. It goes like:
“Let’s take the Golden State Warriors away from pathetic Oakland – It’s like stealing candy from a baby!”
Oh, and this:
“Let’s not talk about the failed America’s Cup anymore! At least not today.”
All right, back to “reality.” Here’s the invite. Enjoy:

[UPDATE: Oblvious, as expected. Who's the cheerleader now?
The Truffula Trees offered at IHOP’s brand new Lorax’s Breakfast special are actually broccoli, so consider yourself warned.
But the creamed spinach to make the eggs green, well that’s a genius move:

Well, it will be tougher to murder people sight unseen at the corner of Sixth and Stevenson from now on, as this shot from Bluoz shows.

You open on Friday and then have lines out the door on Saturday – that’s how it goes in the 415.
Four-star Yelp-rated Dottie’s True Blue Cafe has lost its lease up in the Tenderloin Proper, so, per Paolo Lucchesi and via The Tender, it’s going to be heading south of Market to the Tenderloin Annex.
Looks as if Sixth Street / Mid Market / the corrupt Twitterloin will go from this:

And here’s what I mean by federalized. Some of this stuff costs money, some of it saves money, some of it’s “whenever possible” – more what you call guidelines than actual rules. We’ll have to wait and see how this might affect prices.
We at Louis’ Restaurant know that it is important to reduce, reuse, and recycle. We also believe it is our responsibility to provide our guests with healthy food options. The following are ways in which Louis’ Restaurant is working towards these goals:
With our yearly usage of over 150,000 eggs, we are now using only cage free eggs that are produced within 100 miles. Our produce is now certified organic and sourced from within 200 miles, whenever possible. All our meat and poultry are all natural, hormone and antibiotic free, vegetarian fed, and humanely raised. All bread & desserts are sourced within 25 miles. Our coffee is certified organic and certified fair trade.
Our Waste Management
We have diverted our solid waste by 75% through recycling and composting. Our takeout containers are made of compostable materials, and we have changed the way we serve our coffee creamer and butter to further reduce our waste. We have discontinued selling plastic bottles, instead offering a bottle made of compostable material. Our used cooking oil is picked up by Got Grease, a small local company that makes biodiesel fuel from the old oil, their major client is the San Francisco Municipal Railway.
We have installed new tile floors in our dining room made with 55% recycled content. We have reused our tabletops and booth and counter seats by recovering them. We changed all lighting to LED bulbs in our dining room and storage areas and all new appliances are Energy Star rated wherever possible in order to reduce our energy consumption. Our toilet and faucets are all low flow. We have installed a new high efficiency hand dryer in the restroom that will reduce use of paper towels. The bamboo wainscot in our dining room is Forest Stewardship Certified (FSC) and is a renewable resource. The roof at the addition has a reflective Energy Star qualified surface. All interior paint is zero VOC. Insulation is made from denim and contains no formaldehyde. Our bathroom and alley doors were reclaimed as was the lumber used to build our emergency exit walkway. We also used all FSC certified framing lumber to construct the East Elevation Addition.”
Bon Courage, nouveau Louis’!
