As seen at 6th Avenue and Fulton, more or less, The Skatin’ Place – the serious bidness of Having Fun:

Good News, Everybody! That “$3 Million Farmhouse” at 10th and Balboa Sold for LESS Than Asking Price in 2014

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Oh, wait a sec, maybe that’s BAD news – it depends on who you are.

Anyway, here’s proof that it’s possible to buy a place in Frisco for less than asking price in the Year Of Our Lord 2014:

One of the asking prices was the “lucky” number of $2,888,888.88, IIRC.

(IDK, if I were living out in the Avenues with dial-up internet and didn’t have the option of getting AT&T U-Verse, I think a big green utility box would look better than these blue benches, just saying.)

And the Richmond District’s Biggest Illegal Parking Violator is … Giorgio’s Pizzeria, 151 Clement Street

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

When I come across Giorgio of Giorgio’s Pizzeria, I’ll say, “Hey Gio, how come you ain’t got no brothers up on the wall here?”

And then, regardless of the answer, I’ll follow up with a question about why he doesn’t arrange for a place to park his Prius and whatever delivery vehicles, you know, legally.

(In mitigation, this joint is a viable institution of the Richmond District and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it if you’re looking for an old-school pizza place out in the Avenues…)

Richmond District Photo Quiz: How is This Farmhouse at 10th and Balboa Worth $3 Million? OMG, I’m Gobsmacked

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Here it is, the Inner Richmond farmhouse at 594 10th Avenue what’s worth $2,888,888.88 or whatever, as seen on a dread sunny day:

And oh yes, this crib is just perfect for “entertaining dignitaries.” (And then when that’s over, just head up two blocks to Geary to the prostitution sector for a “happy endings” massage to, you know, complete the soiree!)

Sometimes I just don’t know…

And I’m not objecting to the price, I’m objecting to the price for this, this monument to real estate obsolescence at this particular location. Now if you want to drag this thing northeast to a few blocks above California, well then you might have something, Climb Realty.

To reiterate, sometimes I just don’t know…

Lost Tourist Takes His $1200 Bay Area Bike Share Bicycle Miles Away from Nearest Station – A $13 Joyride?

Monday, November 11th, 2013

Did Dude come up Pine Street to get to the Inner Richmond? Sure looks that way.

That means he’s spending $13 minimum for this joyride.

I mean, that’s prolly more than I’ve spent on BABS so far. (Now how much are we spending on this program per person? I have no idea.)

Anyway, this is the farthest west I’ve seen one of these rides:

A Scary Sight from the Inner Richmond: Vaunted V-12 Mercedes Benz Depreciates More Than 90% in Just a Decade

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

You could buy a new Nissan Versa for like $2k.

Or you could purchase the former top-of-the-line Mercedes Benz from 10 years ago for $12.5 or less.

This CL 600 went for over $130k new:

And now it’s a lot queen, a maintenance nightmare.

OMG, the Grand Opening of the Clement Street Farmers Market is This Sunday, June 23rd, 2013 in the Inner Richmond

Friday, June 21st, 2013

Sunday Sunday Sunday:

Clement St. Grand Opening!
Agricultural Institute of Marin is partnering with the Clement Street Merchants Association to bring the Inner Richmond San Francisco’s newest farmers market! Beginning June 23rd, join us every Sunday from 9am to 2pm, on Clement Street between 2nd and 4th Avenues, year-round, for what promises to be a great Sunday morning destination for foodies and families alike.

Read the news and turn the pages:

Uh, the “Clement Street Farmers Market” is “Nearing Approval” – Really? – Between 2nd and 4th Aves. on Sundays

UPDATE: The Purported “Clement Street Farmers Market” Isn’t Going to Start on June 9th, 2013 After All

Looks Like the “Clement Street Farmers Market” Might Start on June 23rd – Per the Office of District One Supe Eric Mar

Uh Oh: Businesses on 3rd Avenue Still Unaware of the Weekly Clement Street Farmers Market – Starts June 23rd

These days, Clement isn’t all hustle-bustle on the weekends:

“Lord knows that Sundays at that part of Clement can be a bit depressing, what with infrequent bus service, a number of empty parking spaces, and  lots and lots of closed storefronts abutting a handful of thriving businesses.”

For lease, for rent, “retirement sale,” going out of business sale, and on and on:

Tell me how it goes.
