Japantown Diner Evolution at 1700 Post: Denny’s –> Danny’s –> New Danny’s –> Minny’s –> New Minny’s –> ???Friday, May 15th, 2015
Do I have that right?
This is all the same place:
Perhaps this location is now Ssisso and Dennys/Dannys/Minnys is gone? IDK, but I think the New Minny’s sign is still there
I can’t see how New Minny’s is still in operation, so I’ll assume that the mall people simply left the sign up ’cause that was the easier choice.
A mystery solved.
Changes include the removal of graphics and the substitution of trademarked names with generic terms (“Grand Slam” became “Humongous Breakfast” and “Heartland Scramble” became “Hearty Scramble”).
And suffer J.E.:
We were vacationing in San Francisco this week, staying at the Tomo hotel in J town and I stupidly wanted to eat breakfast nearby. What a mistake!! The owner/manager? practically pulled us into this trap of a joint off the sidewalk. We should have kept on walking! Anyway, after looking at what he told us was a Denny’s menu, he switched it with a menu that had a “Danny’s” logo, the sign outside this place was “Minny’s or New Minny’s?, the food was lousy and when I went to pay the bill for our breakfast for 3 it came to $36!!! I elected not to argue with this turkey and just get the hell out! I paid with plastic and had to ask him for a receipt which he reprinted and gave me a duplicate. When we got home today in So-Cal and I checked my on-line stmt, the SOB billed me an extra $10!! for a total of $46 for two lousy bacon and egg meals and one pancake breakfast!! Boy am I upset!!
Uber X + Prius C = Driving North on Southbound Laguna in J-Town? A Questionable But Giddy Five-Star Drive in Uber #7FGU886Monday, April 6th, 2015
On Laguna Street looking south over Post towards Geary with the Chinese consulate on the left in the background:
You see that? An impatient Prius driver simply went around all those cars heading north by pulling into the southbound lane. Then the driver turned left onto Post westbound to drop off her fares:
Now normally with Prius drivers, you gotta wonder about their situational awareness, about whether they know what they’re doing, but in this case, the driver knows what she was doing. She was line jumping to save about a minute or so, hahaha!
Oh, and of course, she’s works for / contracts with Uber:
I’ll tell you, the reason why taxis have “paint schemes” and giant numbers painted on the side is for situations like this….
The Reason Why the Late Winter Cherry Blossoms You’re Seeing in San Francisco ARE NOT Proof of Global WarmingThursday, January 29th, 2015
What’s that, when you were a mere pup cherry trees blossomed in March or April and now you’re seeing blooms in late January and the start of February?
Like here on Grove yesterday, and all over SF pretty soon:
But actually, the trees you’re seeing are actually flowering plums, which are known for their early blooms. So what you’re doing is comparing apples with oranges, or cherries with plums.
And actually, the plum blossoms are late this year, at least compared with recent history.
What’s that, plum and cherry are basically the same? NOPE. They’re in the same family, of course, but the flowering plums that you think are cherries are famous for early blooming.
What’s that, you just saw the blooms in Japantown, so you know you saw cherry trees? NOPE. J-town has a lot of new plum trees, for whatever reason.
What’s that, global warming IS happening? Well, no doubt, but that’s not the reason why you think the cherry trees of your youth are blooming three months earlier these days.
I’ll agree that these trees are closely related and that they look very similar.
(If you still don’t believe me, check the Urban Forest Map.)
