Appears As If the SFPD of Park Station Has a Crackdown Against the Car Sleepers of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

It generally looks like this scene from yesterday night, with three prowlers on hand to handle one set of sleepy-headed car sleepers:

Or so it seems.

To me.

You know, lately, the past few months.

Don’t know why…

And parked behind these were two more guesthouses, you know, the South Wing.

Why do so many people live in vehicles on the Streets of San Francisco?

We can talk about that sometime…

OMG, Use a Visa Card at LivingSocial.com to get an $80 Credit at Tsunami Sushi in the NoPA for $20

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

[UPDATE: The official rating of this deal is now Beyond Excellent. More than a few buds have referred their buds and ended up with three $40 credits for just $20. (Our corporate overlords must have gone hog-wild.) Now, you're too young to remember, but this is like the dotcom days of the late '90s when you could get 50 pounds of dog food delivered to your house for like $8 'n stuff. Anywho, thank you India, thank you terror, etc...]

Word on the street is that August 5, 2010, is a gonna be a Visa Free Deal Day at Living Social.com. So, that means you should be able to get two $40 credits at the Panhandle Tsunami Sushi Bar at 1306 Fulton for just a $20 charge on your Visa card.

Per my Huggy Bear

“You pay $20 with your Visa card (debit or credit) to get your $40 credit, and then receive another $40 credit free to give to a friend (or keep for yourself, it’s not at all required to send the second credit to someone else). So that’s an $80 credit for only $20.”

And then if you refer three friends then you can get another $40 credit. That’s the deal as I understand it.

Tsunami looks appetizing from this angle:

I’m failing to see any unexpected downsides* here, people. (Be sure to tell me if you have any probs with this brand of social shopping.)

See you there!

Traffic Signal-Nesting Pigeon Family Will Surely Change Your Prejudice About Flying Rats

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Here’s a scene from my third trip (and counting, there’ll be more) up and down Market today – it seems the traffic signal-loving rock doves of Mid-Market are actually members of yet another young family trying to make a go of it in the big city. They’re nesting up there.

The Almost-Famous Pigeon Family of Market Street (Familia Casi-Famosa de la Paloma de Calle de Mercado, mas o menos) just might change how you think about rock pigeons. Be sure to look up at the Mason Street signal the next time you illegally proceed up Market Street in your private car.

The amber light has the young-uns along with one of the parents while the red and green lights serve as perches for the other parent.

Bon Courage, Rock Pigeon Family.

San Francisco’s Traffic Signals are Now Overrun with Resident Pigeons

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Is this piece of street furniture on Market Street a traffic signal or a pigeon coop?

As seen betwixt Fifith and Sixth Streets with the Gap building behind:

You’d think a simple pigeon guard could keep these boids out...
