Finally, Some Activity at the Former Poleng Lounge on Fulton Near Masonic in the NoPA Western AddtionWednesday, May 1st, 2013
Whether it’s to open something new or to hunker down until better times I don’t know.
Anyway, it used to be like this but now it’s like this:

San Francisco’s Sunset District Gets Called “Land of Misery” in National Media: “Fog – Thick, Endless, Depressive Clouds”Friday, February 24th, 2012
“If you start at the Bay Bridge and head west along most major streets in San Francisco, you’ll eventually get to a magical land of misery known as the Sunset. The name is a joke, and perhaps even a way to trick tourists: The sun rarely visits the Sunset, not even when it sets. The primary weather element in the Sunset is fog—thick, endless, depressive clouds of it that wash up from the ocean to completely saturate the land. I lived in the Sunset for a single, terrible year. Before I moved there, I used to be one of those snobby city-dwellers who’d look down on suburbanites who couldn’t handle San Francisco’s famously capricious climate. I’d heard the Sunset’s weather wasn’t great, but hey, how bad could it be?
“It was bad. Too bad for me; after our lease was up, my wife and I moved to the suburbs. Looking back, what bothered me most wasn’t the terrible climate—though I did hate it—but the vast difference between the Sunset’s weather and the weather everywhere else. Whatever meteorological patterns applied in normal parts of San Francisco didn’t seem to apply to the Sunset, which meant that forecasts for the city held no sway there. If the weatherman said it was going to be 80 and sunny, it was probably 55 and cloudy at my house.“
Of course, former Supervisor Ed Jew famously claimed to live in the Sunset, but instead of actually doing that he preferred to risk jail, which is where he’s at right now. Oh well.
What a great place for a high-cost, low-productivity photovoltaic power plant using panels costing many times more than the going market rate. Oh well:

But it could be worse. The writer could have started talking about the “houses” of the Sunset District. Here they are, in no particular order:
Keep on keeping on, Sunset District.
Physical Graffiti: Shuttered Poleng Lounge Now Looks Like 1970’s Detroit, But It’s Right Next to Bustling PapaloteMonday, May 2nd, 2011
So why don’t you give it a go, start up your own place on the 1700 block of Fulton near Masonic?
You’d be right next to some new condos and the Starbucks our former mayor used to get coffee from (up to last year), and the nationally-famous Paplote (West) taqueria, and the very active cat house that got shut down not too long ago, and, across the street, you’ll have a Lucky Supermarket – check it out.
“New Look” BMW and some kind of Custom Cruiser station wagon – the 70’s are back in the NoPA

Now, mind you, you’d have to put up with the nastiest NIMBY infection the City has ever seen – the Northeast of Panhandle Millionaire Homeowner / Neo-Ladies Temperance Union, whatever they call themselves, will work against you, try to push you around, and the little monsters, the area teens, they’ll graffiti your joint inside and out. But why don’t you give it a go, start up your own place?

Now, mind you again, the freaks come out at night, but only if you invite them to come down the hill from USF:
Otherwise, it’s all good, baby.
