NB: Those Heavy-Looking Orange Traffic Barriers on Masonic Aren’t Filled, Offering Little Protection

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

Of course they could be filled, but that would be a PITA for the workers:

From Mexico With Love: “Coca Cola Fiesta Variety” – Cane Sugar in Stoplight Colors – Red-Amber-Green – Coke-Fanta-Sprite – 88 Cents Per at Costco

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

First it was all like this, with the Coke v. Pepsi sugar war solely being waged on the cola front.

But now there’s this, your Coca Cola Fiesta Variety Pack, featuring cane sugar Sprite and cane sugar Orange Fanta:

The expected rejoinder from Pepsi? Sugar cane 7-Up and sugar cane Orange Crush, of course.

We would circle and we’d circle and we’d circle
To stop and consider and centered on the pavement
Stacked up all the trucks jacked up and our wheels
In slush and orange crush in pocket and all this here county
Hell, any county
It’s just like heaven here
And I was remembering and I was just in a different county and all
Then this whirlybird that I headed for I had my goggles pulled off;
I knew it all
I knew every back road and every truck stop

Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you’re going to San Francisco
You’re gonna meet some gentle people there

A $23 Cap on Parking Tickets? Could San Francisco Survive Something Like the “Los Angeles Parking Freedom Initiative”

Monday, June 16th, 2014

Read the news and turn the pages, from the LA TImes:

“The Los Angeles Parking Freedom Initiative wants to cap fines at $23 for violations that don’t affect public safety.”

Mmmm…

[CALL:] Hey, could an initiative like this pass in San Francisco County?

[RESPONSE:] Hell to the yes.

Could the SFMTA handle the loss of revenue?

I suppose. But it would turn a solid money-maker – paying well-compensated PCO’s to run around all over the city – into a decided money-loser.

Mmmmm…

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Ah, progress!

You see, first the new air traffic control tower was all like this.

But now it’s all like this:

Pukao are the hats or topknots formerly placed on top of some moai statues on Easter Island. They were all carved from a very light red volcanic stone scoria, which was quarried from a single source at Puna Pau.”

Costco Mexican Soda Evolution – First Came Coke, Then Came Pepsi, But Now Here Comes El Medio Litro, The King

Friday, October 26th, 2012

First came Coke, all the way from Mexico, all the way back in aught-six. (You see, they use  sugar as the sweetener south of the border, you know, instead of corn syrup.)

Then came the 12 oz. Coke in a Coke Bottle purveyors, like this lovely Hayes Valley Taco Model from the Gap:

And then came the Mexican Pepsi at the Costco:

But now comes the King of Them All, El Medio Litro, the half-litre of Mexican Coke in a bottle:

I only saw one case at Costco #144 in SoMA, just recently.

I don’t know what they go for, probably something betwixt $18-24 for 24.

Who knows what Mexican-made beverage Costco will offer next…

Forget About Mexican Coke – These Days, It’s All About Mexican Pepsi, Importacion Especial – Not Corn Syrup, Sugar

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

No Coke, Pepsi.

It was hecho’ed in Mexico but it’s available in the 415 now:

Ah, here’s your Mexican Coke, but it’s been readily available at the Costco for four-plus years now.

It’s all Pepsi these days…

Fashion Update: Actor Jude Law Spotted in Civic Center – Earth Tones! – Including Hush Puppies and a Natty Cap

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Well, isn’t this lovely:

I wonder, which Famous Actor is going to play a character what dies on screen in the Contagion movie? Won’t it be sad when Kate Winslet or somebody gets the contagion and dies?

Anyway.

Bon Courage, Jude Law

Newly Refurbished Rob Hill Campground in the Presidio is Too Cheap and Too Popular

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

What you’re looking at is the only legal campground in the 46 square miles of the City and County of San Francisco. It’s mostly for urban youth. Mostly.

The big kickoff over the weekend was attended by 500 souls. Deets below.

Check out their rules and see if you can get a reservation for your group of up to 30 or what have you – your whole group will be able to stay a night or two for like $125.

The ribbon-cutting (actually, the chain of pinecones cutting) was a big to-do, I understand:

Lots of the work was paid for by the Haas family:

Camping at the Presidio (CAP) Program

Rob Hill Campground is a hidden Presidio gem and is the only camping facility in San Francisco. The site is a fantastic venue for outdoor learning and fun. To provide children and youth who traditionally have not visited national parks with overnight camping experiences, the Crissy Field Center (operated by the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and the National Park Service), the Presidio Trust, and Bay Area Wilderness Training have developed the Camping at the Presidio (CAP) program.

Designed for community organizations and schools, CAP provides a dynamic and affordable way to enrich the lives of young people. CAP trains group leaders with the skills and resources they need to plan and lead a youth camping trip. After program leaders complete an Outdoor Leadership Training program they can begin to prepare for their camping trip to the park. Eligible community and school groups can reserve the campground between March and October.

See you there!

The Windy Western Presidio isn’t the Best Place for Outdoor Wedding Photos

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

Or, I don’t know, maybe it is. As long as you don’t mind if your veil blows in the wind straight out, like the long, long hair of Disney‘s Pocahontas.

Passers by were cheering for this couple, anyway.
