This is how they roll down Hayward(?) way:

“A.1.® HALLOWEEN WHOPPER®SANDWICH – Deliciously Dark
“Join Eat Drink SF and Super Duper Burgers for an outstanding guest chef series leading up to festival weekend. Monday through Friday August 17 – 21, a different, uniquely-designed Bay Area chef’s burger will be available at the Kearny Street Super Duper Burgers. A portion of the proceeds will go to the chef’s charity of choice. On the day the chef’s burger appears on the menu, the chef will be at Super Duper Burgers for one hour from 2 – 3pm, and during that hour, 100% of the sales will go to the chef’s charity of choice.
We have an amazing line-up of participating chefs:
Monday, August 17 – Thomas McNaughton, Ne Timeas Restaurants (Aaxte, Central Kitchen, flour + water, Cafe Du Nord…)
Tuesday, August 18 – David Bazirgan, Dirty Habit
Wednesday, August 19 – James Syhabout, Hawker Fare & Commis
Thursday, August 20 – Brandon Jew, Mister Jiu’s (forthcoming fall 2015)
Friday, August 21 – Michael Mina, Micheal Mina Restaurants (Michael Mina, Bourbon Steak, PABU, The Ramen Bar…)
Here it is:
Here’s the answer:
In-N-Out Burger, Jefferson Street, Fishermans Wharf
(I saw the landmark part first and then looked up to see the sign.)
I’ll tell you, the In-N-Out is in no way a San Francisco Landmark.
(I wonder who signed off on this one?)
Google 2845 Leavenworth to get a Street View.
I guess In-N-Out wanted a big-ass sign and the “urbanists” didn’t want anything to mar the “character” of the Fish Wharf so it had to go half way up the block towards Beach?
I guess this is the SFPD’s version of a Community Service Officer program?
But the pay starts off at $15.99 per hour?
The thing is that the In-&-Out Burger pays more. And didn’t we just vote in a higher minimum wage?
Can you imagine living in the Bay Area with a part-time job what pays $1300-something per month before taxes? Well, if you’re a rich kid living at home, I could see how you could swing that. Or if you had financial aid as a college student. Otherwise, IDK.

For not anyone
Haighteration has the story this AM about how the San Francisco restaurant community is coming together to help one of its own, someone who is still reeling from a crime committed late last year:
“In late November, a beloved member of the Ragazza staff, and broader San Francisco restaurant community, was the victim of a terrible crime. To help this individual get back on their feet, Ragazza, along with several other establishments, are hosting a fundraiser. All proceeds will benefit the crime victim. Funds will be raised through several sources.”
And check out all the local businesspeople who are contributing, below.
“1. On Monday, January 24, Ragazza will donate 100% of sales proceeds to this cause. For this evening, Ragazza will hold an intimate benefit dinner, with a special menu designed by Chef Sharon Ardiana. The meal will be served family style, with antipasti, salad, pizza, entree and dessert. Seatings are at 5:00 pm, 7:00 pm or 9:00 pm. The cost is $35/person, including wine, excluding gratuity and tax. As of 1/13/11, the 7pm seating is sold out. To make a reservation or to be put on the 7pm waiting list, please email Laurie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. A variety of items will be auctioned off on eBay, between Friday, January 21st and Monday, January 31st. Auction items include special meals at notable San Francisco restaurants, cooking lessons, private meals prepared by Bay Area chefs, art, photography, wine and other items. To see all items up for auction or to bid on an item, please visit this link.
3. You may send a cash donation to benefit the victims of this crime. To do so, please send a check made out to our fiscal sponsor, La Cocina, Inc. Please write Ragazza Fundraiser in the memo line so that your contribution goes directly to our cause. Donations may also be made on the evening of January 24 at the restaurant. For your donation to be tax deductible, it will need to be made via check payable to La Cocina, Inc. Donations may be sent to:
2948 Folsom Street
San Francisco, CA 94110-4028
Note that all auction items and donations made via check to La Cocina, Inc. are tax deductible over the fair market value of the item (in the case of auction items). La Cocina is a registered 501c3 organization.
