Here are about ten sellers in a row this morning on the corner of 7th and Market in the heart of the corrupt Twitterloin.

Appears as if San Francisco’s seniors have more than enough food, but not enough cold hard cash.
I inquired about Crispy Hexagons, but there was no reply.
The Case of the Crispy Hexagons: Famous Akit Can’t Abide Food Bank Abuse From Our Determined Senior CitizensTuesday, August 23rd, 2011
So yeah, sometimes our seniors don’t really need to eat the food that they line up for at area food banks and churches and whatnot, but what are you going to do? It’s a lifestyle thing.

So sure, some of them start horse-trading immediately (a big no-no near Glide Memorial – they want you to at least cross the street before dickering) and others sell their stuff down at U.N Plaza (that Mistake by the Lake, or fountain, whatever.)
And others, in more suburban areas such as the Western Addition and the West Bay, load their booty into the boots of their aging GS V8 Lexuseses.

“Nuisance Alcohol,” What’s That? Whatever, CVS Won’t Sell It in the Outer Richmond – No 40’s, No 4Loko, No Malts, No NothingMonday, November 15th, 2010

Can wine be a “nuisance alcohol” too, CVS?
P.S. The NIMBY groups you’ve been talking to only represent themselves. What about the 99% of Richmond District people who don’t belong to any NIMBYhood association? What do they think?
