OTOH, the place has 4.5 Yelp stars…

“8/1/2013 Found this place on Yelp and came with a friend…came back with more friends the next day! I truly love the Salad Bar selection at Chez Fayala because it’s much more than a generic Salad Bar, with options ranging from gourmet salad entrees like kale salad or arugula + grilled red onions salad to different varieties of roasted veggies to Italian/French/Asian foods to fruit salad…and of course the amazing spicy Fried Sea Bass that is lightly sprinkled with sesame sees (this the largest reason while I came back the next day. Craved it badly.)  What impresses me is that this all-you-can-serve bar has options like gourmet olives, various styles of homemade hummus, etc. Stuff that isn’t just wholesale, canned Costco material like many other Salad Bars. Payment is by the pound. Those of you who are frequent SF lunch-timers in the FiDi, might have come across Portico. Think of Chez Fayala as Portico on steroids! Lunch rush is bad, and it’s hard to find seats but we managed to find some both times. Just know that till December, the Salad Bar is 50% so most boxes end up between $6-$8. I might find it hard to pay $13 for a regular food box, even though that Fried Sea Bass is top notch. Until then, I’ll enjoy!”

Did the SFPD’s Park Station Spend Half a Day Just Taking Shopping Carts Away from Homeless People? Yes – Shift Log

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Well here it is, straight from the horse’s mouth:

“Our zero tolerance for quality of life violations is continuing. We are recovering many misappropriated shopping carts.”

So that’s why the SFPD’s Park Station spent half a day taking shopping carts away from homeless people

Check it, the log from January 29th, 2013:

Per commenter bd3517:

“According to the 1/24/13 Park Station Newsletter, in that week they recovered 11 shopping carts, describing it as misappropriation of property. An example entry from the report:‘Officer Diskin recovered a misappropriated shopping cart and admonished the culprit who had misappropriated it.’”

This is what it looks like.

Park Station didn’t confiscate shopping carts like this before.

I wonder what led to this policy…

Dude was saying how it was better that he didn’t have some kind of permit, else all of his stuff would gave been taken away instead of just his cart.

That’s how it works in the SFPD’s Park Police District, San Francisco, USA.
