I’d say the top suspects in this caper are the tens of thousands of people who have priced apartment rents in the 415 over the past few months.

Of course CW Nevius himself is a newcomer to San Francisco, but he likes increasing rents because he’s an owner, right?

Oh well.

NOPA Pwned – Street Youths Claim Gentrified Divisadero is “Just Like the Suburbs”

Friday, March 5th, 2010

Three of these youts (possibly Academy of Art students) crossing Divisidero the other night got a lesson about NOPA courtesy of a fourth, who was in Sightsee M.C. mode.

First, WiFi-enabled and MacBook-heavy Cafe Abir got dismissed as the “Hastings* Study Group.” And actually, the phrase “The Future Lawyers of America” was bandied about.

And then the whole of the new North of Panhandle Area got dismissed as being “just like the suburbs.”

All Mission District Residents Get a 25% Discount at American Apparel in San Francisco!

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

Oh, you people in the Mission District have been waiting for this. Just get some ID and something that has your name and address on it showing you live in the 94110 (or somewhere close enough to give you a colorable claim of Missionite status) and then hop on your polluting moped to get over to any of the three remaining American Apparels. Then demand your 25% discount on anything in the store until March 15, 2009

Forget the controversy, just get yourself some new clothes. Joaquin Phoenix would want you to, and plus, you’ve earned it, baby!

Just one issue remains – what to put into the empty space at 998 Valencia? How about a Starbucks? The Mission is currently under-served by Amerikkka’s favorite purveyor of caffeinated beverages. See?

Anyway, AA is open to suggestions. Think about it.
