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.

‘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.
I’ll tell you, I don’t have strong feelings either way about Chipotle’s. It’s like whatever, dude.
But check it, Chipotle’s is selling beer in SoMA on a LIQUOR LICENSE PENDING basis?
I’m as shocked as you are:

I thought so but now I don’t know.
Anyway, these days we have a place what sells fast food and beer together, just like a French McDonalds or whatever.
Oh, here’s what I could dig up on any liquor license application. It aint much.
