Excuse Me, Officer? Our Mercedes Benz is Parked in Your Twitterloin Crime Scene – Could You Move Your Cruiser For Us?

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

You know, just a skosh? ‘Cause the brunch line at farmerbrown is just too long for us today – we need to motor.

Gathering evidence at a crime scene in Mayor Ed Lee’s Twitterloin Open-Air Halfway House and Stolen IPhone Emporium:

There was yellow tape all over the place, two scenes on Market and two on Turk. At first I thought it could have been a MDK, but I never heard anything about it…

New Signage from The Red Door Cafe on Bush – San Francisco’s Very Own “Brunch Nazi” DOES NOT Tolerate Gluten Intolerance

Here’s an update on the latest signage for The Red Door Cafe on Bush near Franklin.

Double entendre a gogo:

Web Designer and “Girl in Tech” Kari Suleman Offers $30 for a “TaskRabbit” to Wait in Line for Her at Dottie’s True Blue Cafe

Monday, July 15th, 2013

Per Mid-Market resident Bluoz:

“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…

Name That Iconic San Francisco Restaurant: Which Brunch-Lunch-Dinner Spot is This?

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

Despite the use of green, brown and yellow as “primary colors,” I think it’s still pretty easy to recognize the tables, the chairs, the cutlery, the woodpile (camera left) ‘n stuff.

Nothing’s really changed over the years (decades?) except the prices….

(And I’d tell you about the parking sitch out front but that would just upset certain NIMBYs so oh well.)

Why Not Go to Cole Valley’s Zazie Bistro for Dinner Instead of Brunch?

Wednesday, December 16th, 2009

Cole Valley’s favorite brunch spot is open for dinner, don’t you know. Let’s take a peek.

On a late Sunday night, you can just walk right in to get a bite. That’s quite different than the crowds you’ll see on a tweekend morning.

Zazie at closing time:

Jerry Brown Comes to San Francisco to Raise Money in Gavin Newsom’s Backyard

Sunday, October 4th, 2009

Well, actually Jer-bear‘s journey today took him to San Francisco’s leafy Woodland Avenue, home of both Jane Morrison and Agar Jaicks - it’s perhaps it’s a half-mile from Gavin Newsom’s new place on Masonic. So it’s kind of his backyard. Read all about the affair in this glowing report from Bill Wilson at the San Francisco Sentinel - was former Board of Supervisors President Aaron Peskin there? Take a look to see.

And look who else was there – it’s Robert Haaland and his union allies. You know, the very same Robert that San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newson “hates” (reportedly). For the record, Mr. Haaland had this bon mot:

“Jerry Brown wrote the book that Gavin Newsom needs CliffsNotes to understand.”

(Or “needs CLiffNotes to read,” something like that – there might have been different endings. The book in this context would probably be entitled Governance or some such thing – people were talking about Jerry’s forward-looking high speed rail proposals from three decades ago, stuff like that.)

Ouch.
