And then at Golden Gate and Van Ness:

When will the next domino fall?
I’m talking exactly.
Of course the nearby Inner Sunset district used to have the World’s Smallest Burger King (just a skosh under the then all-important 1000 square foot threshold), but it, just as with Cole Valley’s Bacon Bacon, had issues with neighbors complaining about the smell.
So head on up to the wavy wavy roof for a sniff. And while you’re there, check out Color of Life. It’s excellent.

So this chain already has 1800 or so outlets, so let’s call this place at Geary and Masonic Store #1801.
The thing is, regular San Franciscans, not the electeds, you know, just regular people, love chain stores and here’s the test: OPEN ONE UP AND SEE IF PEOPLE SHOP THERE. You dig? That’s why chain stores are banned or are effectively banned in certain areas under certain conditions.
If San Franciscan didn’t like chain stores, then chain stores wouldn’t open up here in the first place, or, if they did, then nobody would shop there and then the chain stores would close up and leave.
Now this particular chain store is hidden away, like a porno shop, and that helped it get approved. you see, we like chain stores but we don’t want to see them all over the place.
On It Goes…

“I think this wrapper means we all have the same rights,” a young child explains.
“A burger has never made me cry before,” says a young woman.
“Proceeds from the limited-time-only $4.29 sandwich will be donated to the Burger King McLamore Foundation, the chain’s charity arm, for scholarships for college-bound LGBT high school seniors graduating next spring.”
Bonus round: Rainbow Crowns!
Oh, and from Burger King’s FaceBook page, where people are writing in to say that they’ll never eat at BK again:
I’ve never heard of a McDonalds store simply closing down, but this one did back in aught-twelve
One supposes it was just a bad place for a McDonalds…
Is this “french fries or onion rings” exception to the SF Checkout Bag Ordinance documented anywhere?

‘Cause I’m not seeing it. (Is there something in there about messy food?)
Anyway, order freedom fries or onion things if you want to stick it to the man and save money.
