The Last Time Anybody in Frisco Wanted a Phone Book, It was for the RAINBOW GROCERY Coupons Inside

But those monthly coupons are gone now, long gone.

So why do we still have phone book deliveries in 2016?

Frisco’s Most Aggressive Driver is, and I’m Srsly, a “Tiffin Walla” Delivering Vegetarian Fare for “Green Tiffen”

Friday, November 18th, 2016

Let’s see if I can pay off on the headline.

This ‘splains tings:

Tiffin Wallas aka Delivery Crew

I’ll tell you I’m not a cop, so I couldn’t name you the numerous CVC violations I witnessed Fast and Furious over the course of about 20 seconds going from Market Sutter Sansome and then across Bush and then she lost me. Everybody has different standards for what’s appropriate driving, but geez, man. (It’s the electric assist what encourages this, IMO.)

[Turbo Charged Interlude] You want some website copy? Here’s some website copy:

Adrian founded Green Tiffin in fall of 2013 in San Francisco, although the idea seed was planted early in his childhood.

Now where was I? Oh:

Compensation and benefits: 

– Guaranteed base hourly pay + delivery incentive 

Zip through San Francisco hills with Green Tiffin electric bicycles

– Look sharp in our delivery coat

– FREE healthy and sustainable lunch on workdays

– A pathway for development 

– A fun and fast-paced working environment 

I’ll tell you, a cab company in Frisco used to have a “racing” system of dispatch where the closest driver would be assigned a fare but others were free to swoop in to get there first – this was to prevent cabbies from lying too much about how close they were to the customer. Anyway, one time two cabbies working for the same outfit crashed into each other trying to win this game so that ended the racing system of dispatch.

And then Dominoes Pizza with its 30-minute guarantee, right?

And now Green Tiffen.

I’ll tell you Green Tiffen, I don’t think you’re on a “sustainable journey.”

A Rare Delivery in Frisco: Dominos Pizza in the Housing Projects of McAllister

Friday, September 16th, 2016

I can’t recall the last time I’ve seen this – a pizza delivery in the Western Addition flats, on McAllister near Fillmore. This has been a no-go area for some pizza places in Frisco for a long time. There’s a long history of this kind of delivery redlining  – see some of it here, or even more here.

(IMO, Friendship Village(s) = The Projects.)

Here’s one current delivery map. It’s a tad embarrassing, you know, for all of us in Frisco, so you now have to request persimmon (Mmmm… persimmon) from the owner/manager of Amici’s Pizza to see it – that’s how embarrassing it is.

I’m not saying that this part of McAllister Street is particularly dangerous and I’m also not saying that big-city pizza delivery is particularly safe, I’m just saying I can’t ever recall seeing a Domino’s delivery in this area, in all my years.

UNEXPECTED MEAT: $14,000 Worth of Pork Parked on the Sidewalk

Friday, August 26th, 2016

These things cost $6 a bag? Wow.

Did George H.W. Bush retire to the Western Addition? Maybe.

Nobody was watching so I was going to swipe a couple of boxes and then sell these pork rinds as “nickel bags” on Divisadero. “Paleo-approved,” I was going to shout at passers-by. But then I remembered – Meat is Murder.

You Know, the San Francisco Chronicle Has Always Been a Middle-Of-The-Road Publication – This is a Parked Delivery Truck

Tuesday, July 12th, 2016

So, if you park on the double yellow line, it’s OK?

7J7C8562 copy

I remember when they used to use big trucks, like this one driven by William Randolph Hearst III in an Examiner ad from back in the day.

Anyway, the driver stops in the middle of McAllister, drops off his load, and then idly chitchats with bodega operators while his minitrucks idles – this makes the block look like a crime scene, if only temporarily.
