The Blue Bottle Coffee Kiosk Still Attracting Crowds in Hayes Valley

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

This is the scene down in Hayes Valley on Linden Street near Gough on a Saturday morning. This Yelp-rated kiosk is phenomenally busy, as busy as nearby Brenda’s French Soul Food. Here’s the skivvy:

We have an odd but convivial little coffee kiosk in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley: 315 Linden Street, SF, CA 94102. We have a small menu of espresso drinks, drip coffee, our New Orleans iced coffee, a few cookies from the cute girls at Miette Cakes, and biscotti from Pizzetta 211. We offer beans to sell, dropped off Tuesday morning, Wednesday evening and Saturday morning. We use Clover organic milk, and organic sugar. Please drop by. M-F 7-5 or 6; Sat, Sun 8-5 or 6.”

Looking for Parking in Golden Gate Park Can Become a Family Affair

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

Those circling Golden Gate Park looking for a free parking space will eventually be rewarded, but finding an empty spot can be a trying ordeal taking upwards of an hour. Best if you enlist the aid of beasts and children.

Why not give it a try? They’ll bark or squeal to alert you when the see a legal space.

Bless the beasts and the children.

San Francisco’s St. Patrick’s Day 2009 (aka “Shamrock Day”) a Sedate Affair

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

Now back in the day, a place like the Little Shamrock on Lincoln in the Inner Sunset would be hopping on Saint Patrick’s Day, but tonight didn’t seem all that bustling at all. Mind you, the place was full, but it didn’t seem as busy as in years past.

Click to expand. Back in the day, pre-recession, you’d have a crowd of a hundred or so on the sidewalk in front of LS waiting to get in on “Shamrock Night.”  

The same could be said for the Irish-type bars in the Inner Richmond District as well. The Plough and Stars, Abbey Taven, the Bitter End and the like on Clement and Geary just didn’t seem to be all that busy.

Oh well.

Now about that “Shamrock Day” – it’s the politically correct term, apparently, so the wee ones won’t go Catholic on you, or something. (Yish.)

See you next year.
