Now that we speak the same language, see how you would have handled this super-sad MUNI bus fight on the 30. Myself, I would have placed my burly frame betwixt them, giving them both a chance to save face and shut up…
Disgruntled Customer vs. Cafe Fayala in the Financh: “50% Off Is Not True!” – A Giant Sign Tells the Story of One Man’s ProtestTuesday, August 13th, 2013

OTOH, the place has 4.5 Yelp stars…
“8/1/2013 Found this place on Yelp and came with a friend…came back with more friends the next day! I truly love the Salad Bar selection at Chez Fayala because it’s much more than a generic Salad Bar, with options ranging from gourmet salad entrees like kale salad or arugula + grilled red onions salad to different varieties of roasted veggies to Italian/French/Asian foods to fruit salad…and of course the amazing spicy Fried Sea Bass that is lightly sprinkled with sesame sees (this the largest reason while I came back the next day. Craved it badly.) What impresses me is that this all-you-can-serve bar has options like gourmet olives, various styles of homemade hummus, etc. Stuff that isn’t just wholesale, canned Costco material like many other Salad Bars. Payment is by the pound. Those of you who are frequent SF lunch-timers in the FiDi, might have come across Portico. Think of Chez Fayala as Portico on steroids! Lunch rush is bad, and it’s hard to find seats but we managed to find some both times. Just know that till December, the Salad Bar is 50% so most boxes end up between $6-$8. I might find it hard to pay $13 for a regular food box, even though that Fried Sea Bass is top notch. Until then, I’ll enjoy!”
Web Designer and “Girl in Tech” Kari Suleman Offers $30 for a “TaskRabbit” to Wait in Line for Her at Dottie’s True Blue CafeMonday, July 15th, 2013
“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…
A Bold Move From Japan: Using a Rat as a Logo for Your Restaurant – Frontier Kyoto Uratera Bar & CafeWednesday, June 5th, 2013
Here it is, from Kyoto, Japan, the first thing you see from the street:
Dude explicates, basically saying that he knows it’s funny but he thinks the white rat logo will bring good fortune:
お店のロゴを考えている時、不意に浮かんだ 『 白ねずみ 』
店の繁栄も願って 『 白ねずみ 』 をキャラクターに決めました”
OTOH, in San Francisco, rats are inside and outside of restaurants, but they are NEVER used as logos.
Just check out Fishermans Wharf around closing time. If you aren’t mugged, you’ll eventually see the rats.
And a few of them will be white…
