Modernist McDonalds Makeover Tells the Western Addition, “We’re Not Going Anywhere”

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

I mean, it wouldn’t make sense to put all kinds of money into the famous McD’s at Golden Gate and Fillmore if you were planning on selling out to developers in the near future, right?

It doesn’t look like a McDonalds anymore, FBOW. (Reminds me of nearby Jane the Bakery somehow.)

IDK how many San Francisco McDonaldses we’ve lost in recent years – the list must have a dozen entries the past decade. But not this one, not yet…

Normally, this place is filled with people just hanging out, but I saw no one at all here at this time…

Friday, February 24th, 2017

Add this to the list of McD’ses (Pine, Market, Grant, Mission, the list goes on) what have failed in Frisco:

This was the scene yesterday. And this here was from a few days back.

You’ll Never Guess What’s Under the Christmas Tree at This McDonalds

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

I’m thinking a Big Mac, a Quarter-Pounder and maybe a McFish or something, the gold, frankincense and myrrh
of McD’s:

These are the new-school cardboard packages.

But ‘member the old design? I do.

Our Brokedown Palace, a Formerly Architecturally Significant Mcdonald’s, Gets Tagged – But Signs of Life Now

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

Here’s the scene at Golden Gate and Van Ness, with the vacant McD’s to the left and newly-placed construction trailers to the right. But it turns out that the trailers are just there for the multiyear Van Ness BRT project, which will finish sometime in the 2020’s

Cruel Shoes: If Ronald McDonald Wore High Heels

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

Or are these platform heels? (One supposes that’s a subcategory of high heel, but one doesn’t know for sure)

Kings Things:

– The #1 occupation for those with a foot fetish is … shoe salesman, just saying.

– I talked with a shoe salesman in Union Square one time. He side his “primary job” as a salesperson was to determine if the customer wanted to buy some new kicks TODAY. “Women will go shoe shopping to kill time, while waiting for a bus.” OTOH, if you told him that you were a serious shopper, he’d “have all the time in the world for you.” That’s life on commish, I s’pose.  

SUPER BOWL 50 CELEBRATION Kicks Off Sept 10th – ELLIE GOULDING AND TRAIN Play Justin Herman Plaza – Free Concert

Sunday, August 9th, 2015

At 4:30 PM on Thursday, September 10th, 2015 you can head over to Justin Herman Plaza to see Ellie Goulding and Train perform live.

Hey, you know who’s hosting Super Bowl 50? That’s right, “the San Francisco Bay Area” is. (Shhh. Don’t tell our SFGov City Family about that.)

Speaking of which, SFGov is probably looking forward to getting some national attention for something other than the shooting of Kathryn Steinle.

All the deets:

“2015 NFL KICKOFF PRESENTED BY HYUNDAI” TO CELEBRATE START OF THE NFL SEASON AND NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS’ SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONSHIP
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10
NATIONWIDE KICKOFF TO SUPER BOWL 50 CELEBRATION
ELLIE GOULDING AND TRAIN TO PERFORM LIVE IN SAN FRANCISCO
NBC’S FOOTBALL NIGHT IN AMERICA KICKS OFF SEASON AT GILLETTE STADIUM
NBC/NFL Network Special on Thursday, Sept. 10, 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. ET
Precedes NFL Kickoff Game:
PITTSBURGH STEELERS vs. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

The NFL kicks off both its 96th season and the season-long celebration of Super Bowl
50 with “2015 NFL KICKOFF PRESENTED BY HYUNDAI” – 7:30 PM ET Thursday,
September 10, it was announced Sunday night during NBC’s national broadcast of the
annual NFL/Hall of Fame Game. Festivities will take place in both New England, home
of the Super Bowl XLIX champion Patriots, and the San Francisco Bay Area, host of
Super Bowl 50.

Celebrations will begin in San Francisco with a free concert featuring multi-platinum
singer-songwriter ELLIE GOULDING and San Francisco’s own Grammy Award-winning
band TRAIN live at Justin Herman Plaza across from the historic Ferry Building. The
musical performances and activations in San Francisco are part of the year-long On
The Fifty campaign dedicated to celebrating the Super Bowl and commemorating Super
Bowl 50.

Performances by Goulding and Train will be featured in simulcast coverage of a 60-
minute pregame show from New England 7:30 – 8:30 PM ET on NBC and NFL
Network. The live pregame broadcast also will be available via NFL Mobile from
Verizon.

The concert and pregame show lead into the season opener between the Pittsburgh
Steelers and Patriots at Gillette Stadium (NBC, NBC Sports Live Extra on desktop and
tablet, Westwood One Radio Sports, 8:30 PM ET).

This is the 14th consecutive Kickoff celebration to start the season and the 11th time the
NFL has saluted the Super Bowl champions with the opening game in their stadium on
a Thursday in primetime. As part of the Kickoff events leading up to Super Bowl XL ten
years ago, the NFL incorporated musical performances from Los Angeles (home to the
first Super Bowl), Detroit (host of Super Bowl XL) and New England (which won Super
Bowl XXXIX).

Television’s most-watched studio show, NBC’s Football Night in America, will be live onsite
in New England.

Fans nationwide will participate in Kickoff festivities leading up to the season’s first
games. For example, in Chicago the Bears will host the “2015 Super Bears Shuffle 5K”
at Soldier Field, while Baltimore’s Inner Harbor will be home to the “Ravens Kickoff
Party” at Power Plant Live. In Pittsburgh, the Steelers will host the “Gatorade-Steelers
5K” at Heinz Field benefiting the Art Rooney Scholarship Fund. These are just a few
examples of the many ways teams and fans are getting back to football.

2015 NFL KICKOFF will be produced by RICKY KIRSHNER, the Executive Producer of
the Super Bowl pregame and halftime shows, and directed by GREGG GELFAND.
In addition to presenting sponsor Hyundai, top tier sponsors for the NFL’s Kickoff
platform include Bridgestone, Bud Light, McDonalds, Microsoft, Pepsi, Snickers,
Verizon and Visa.

concert. The credential deadline is Friday, August 28. Media interested in covering the
