Oh, well, maybe it’s just a tad unofficial

Here it is now. Pretty sweet, huh?
Pretty sweet indeed, but it makes Trouble Coffee & Coconuts appear as if it’s souther than it really is.
How about this instead? I mean SF pretty much already appears to be a hunk of $4 toast from the get-go, right? We’re basically a 7×7 square with a bight taken out of the northwest corner.* That’s correct, Gentle Readers, the unprotected bay at Lands End is called the San Francisco Bight. That sounds just like “bite,” right?
It’s also where the Four Dollar Toast Founder hangs out, more or less. Check it out, from This American Life:
“John Gravois tells the story of a potentially annoying San Francisco food trend: artisanal toast. John explains how, in fact, the trend’s origins are very down to earth, and more heroic than annoying. John wrote a version of this story for Pacific Standard magazine, where he is an editor.

Anyway, just a suggestion. Thank you, drive through.
*This bight is why SF isn’t actually 49 square miles. Add everything up from the Farallon Islands to the small chunk of Alameda Island(!) that’s actually SF County, and we’re at 46.something square miles.
So, sure, as an athlete at Sochi you got offered a free Note 3 phone, but the fine print on the deal says you have to cover over the Apple logo on your iPhone if you want to use it to take some snaps at the Opening Ceremony.
“Olympic sponsor Samsung wants to see the opening ceremony no competition items in your TV picture. Those who want to attend the ceremony on Friday at the invasion photos or videos with a competing product which has to cover for example the Apple logo.”
Sounds like a fair deal to me, as my 2012-era Note 2 is getting long in the tooth these days.*
Oh Apple, will you ever win?
In closing, please enjoy this German to English translation from the same graf:
“As a welcome gift to get the Swiss athletes not only beer tankard (from one of the sponsors), Swiss Olympic laid it on the pillow chocolate balls ready.”
That says it all, huh?
USA! USA! USA!
I’m sorry, sAmSUng! sAmSUng! sAmSUng!
Leaving you with the Beirut Boat Show:
*(Oh that’s right, I have no skillz with which to become an Olympian, oh well. At least I have my Android Phone Name Generator)

Check it, BEFORE (Trademark serial number 75868216 from 1999) and AFTER:
And here’s the livery:
“My fascination with the Muni logo started a long time ago. It’s an iconic piece of San Francisco’s heritage and probably the most recognized SF symbol after the SF Giants. Because of my obsessive compulsions, I’ve been itching to rework the main mark without compromising its longstanding aesthetic quality.
I collaborated with Mirtho Prepont to come up with a new approach for the Muni brand, ranging from the original logo, to additional extensions such as sign systems, apparel, interactive applications, among others.
This is an exercise of civic engagement and it is a fictional effort for personal and educational purposes. This exercise isn’t meant as a rhetorical call to action for SFMTA. That would be unwise of the agency to spend money on such a thing rather than improving their service. However, I think these are things to be considered if they do decide to work on it later on in the future when they have solved the rest of their issues.”
I’m sold. Make it so.
