I gotta say, I approve of quiet groups who actually do things. You know, LESS YAMMER, MORE HAMMER

What Comes at the End of 11th Street? The Beginning of 13th Street, Of Course! – This Photo Will Amaze YouMonday, February 10th, 2014
Or not. Actually, I’m pretty sure that this shot won’t amaze you. Sorry.
But since you’re here now anyway, take a gander, you silly goose:

Speaking of “BIKE LANE,” this is the intersection where an SFMTA MUNI bus ran over a cyclist about four months ago.
It All Comes Together: Our SFMTA Balances Out an Anti-Semitic Ad With a Pro-Semitic Ad ON THE SAME BUS!Wednesday, May 15th, 2013
All right, get up to speed here and then check out demiurgic Chris Roberts right here in the San Francisco Examiner.

And from the side:
See how that balances out?
Actually, I don’t think these ads are necessarily pro or anti semitic.
But I didn’t see how the prior ads were “anti-gay.”
On It Goes…
OMG, “Off The Grid: Upper Haight” has Grown Into Quite the Affair – Food Truck Dinner Party Every ThursdayFriday, August 26th, 2011
Off The Grid has come into its own at the Upper Haight Location at the end of Waller near Stanyan (just one block north of our landmark Haight Street McDonalds).
I had no idea that it’s become so popular, like it was yesterday, in the pouring fog.
And, of course, you can’t ignore the almost-perfect Yelp rating
Doublecheck the sked if you want to, but this is it, currently:
I’ll tell you, I was there at the beginning, at the very first OTGUH like a year ago. Back then, it wasn’t slammed with people, but these days it is.
Get on out there next Thursday, why not?
I don’t know about other OTGs but this one is off the hook.
Enjoy the consensus, plus the Minority Report, which focuses on the fact that too many people are there (is that a bug or a feature?) and the air-conditioned summer weather (is that a bug or a feature?):
“Went last night, and wow. Bites of the night included the pork belly with pickled daikon from Chairman Bao (the bun was super soft and delicious with a generous serving of pork belly) a pandan waffle, and unagi onigiri from Onigilly (which also has miso soup, an awesome treat in the freezing Haight AND they give you free refills). Highly recommend going with a group of 5 or 6 and sharing bites of things.”
“If you’ve tried the Off the Grid at Fort Mason, then this is pretty much the exact replica of it except on a smaller scale. I recognized some of the exact same food trucks too. And just like Fort Mason, it is crazy packed. I had a burrito that I think might have been from El Huarache Loco, which was decent and had a nice spicy kick to it. Other than the novelty of experiencing the food truck craze, I think the food is only okay and a bit on the pricey side based on portion size. The crowds also get a bit overwhelming especially when you’re waiting in a humongous line in the freezing SF cold. Fun to try on occasion if you just want to dabble in different types of food.”
“Off the Grid is the new age of food trucks. They promote alot of fusion foods and foods not normally served in restaurants. Since I’m a Pilipino who loves food well, I go often. They have a cupcake truck, Senior Sisig, and that Korean truck. I need to try out the bacon truck the next time I go there. It’s great place w/ your friends to meet up and snack on great foods. They have live music as well. I need to try out the other OTG.”
I don’t know, is it really sad that the Space Shuttle program ended?
Uh, not really.
And, really, there wasn’t a chance that it could have worked out – check out this prescient bit from three decades ago from college-boy Gregg Easterbrook, if you want.
And realize that each launch ended up costing $1.5 billion.
Adieu, Space Shuttle:
The Best Place to Score Drugs in SoMA is Probably on Heroin Street, Right Next to Quality Brake Supply on TenthFriday, June 3rd, 2011
[Here’s how rooted in the 80’s I am – this simple ditty gives me chills within the first second of play. (Sinead O’Connor proved that you don’t need hair to look good when you have excellent, excellent genes.)]
Or Heron Street, some people call it that…

Or some people might read it as “END Heroin.”
Cheeky little devil!
This whole issue concerning the soccer fields in the west end of Golden Gate Park is your classical what-do-we-want-to-do-with-our-land conflict that has your nature lovers squaring off against your soccer players.
There’s lots to consider – migrating birds, soccer injuries, lighting up the night sky near Ocean Beach, and the budget ‘n stuff.
