MUNI Buses as a Rosetta Stone: Teach Yourself Spanish and Chinese with These McDonalds McCafe McAds

I haven’t seen the answer key ad in English – maybe someday

Now that we speak the same language, see how you would have handled this super-sad MUNI bus fight on the 30. Myself, I would have placed my burly frame betwixt them, giving them both a chance to save face and shut up…

The Rear Entrance of the Hippie Hill McDonalds at Stanyan and Haight Emptied of Hippies + A Security Guard

Thursday, November 28th, 2013

There I was, taking Heckle and Jeckle out for a walk when I noticed that the rear patio of world-famous McDonalds 3566 was entirely bereft of loiters AND I noticed a private security guard walking by.

I’ve never noticed either of these two things before.

Just saying.

Stay hungry, my friends.

Street Buns, Street Buns, Street Buns! From McDonalds – See Where Your Egg McMuffin Bread Gets Put Before You Buy It

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

This isn’t literally on Haight Street – it’s on the short road drivers use to get from Haight Street to the McDonalds parking lot next to Amoeba Records. This is where cars would drive thru if this store had a drive-thru window.

I guess the pavement suffices when employees need a place to put the buns down temporarily:

(Next time I pass through, I’ll check to see if they still offer the McDouble at the loss-leader, giveaway price of  just a dollar. McDonaldsese’s Dollar Menu has been updated nationally recently, and some local franchises have used that opportunity to raise McDouble prices to $1.29.  This particular franchise on Haight Street was famous a couple of years back for  banishing the Dollar Menu in order to, purportedly, cut down on the general hippie/streetkid population in the area.)

Our World-Famous Haight Street McDonalds, Upside Down and Backwards – Where Up is Down and Left is Right

Now, let’s hear from the peanut gallery:

If I could give it zero stars, I would.  This location is synonymous with trash, drug abuse, and a family unfriendly environment receiving literally hundreds of police calls.  McDonalds HQ should shut it down or clean it up as it gives all McDonalds a bad name.”

OK then.

San Francisco Celebrity Product Endorsement: Frank Chu, the Former Quiznos Man, at the Chevron McDonalds – Market Street

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

This Micky D’s is in one of the former Chevron Buildings on Market in the Financh / South of Market Area. It even has a fake gas pump inside. (And yet McDonalds promotes Shell these days, go figure.)

Anyway, you can find Frank Chu here like multiple times per day. If that’s not a product endorsement, I don’t know what is.

Back in the day, Quiznos used to pay Frank to have its name on his Famous Sign – you’ll learn about that in colledge, Marketing 101

Where Will YOU Be on 420 Day? In Golden Gate Park or at 420 Day Street in Noe Valley? Plus, an Awesome Vapor Cloud Photo

Friday, April 19th, 2013

Golden Gate Park be getting all crowded these days on annual 420 Day, so why not head on down to Noe Valley and light up at 4:20 PM at 420 Day Street instead?

The neighbors will welcome you interloping potheads with open arms. I’m sure!

Actually, Noe Valley is the locus of NIMBY – it’s filled with asshole millionaire homeowners and concomitant neighbor feuding.

Here it is, 420 Day, or close enough. Check out the comically large Planning Commission NOTICE OF HEARING notice on the front gate and the comically small recycling bin out front. (No black garbage can? A point of pride, I’m sure)

Oh, here we go, here’s real 420 Day, not too far from the Haight Street McDonalds on Stanyan.

That’s not fog, that’s a cloud of exhaled Mary Jane:

An excellent capture from world-famous Broke-Ass Stuart.

All right, Happy 420 Day 2013!

This POLIZIA Lamborghini Has Been Pulled Over, Ticketed Repeatedly, and Towed the Past Three Weeks

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Do you remember this one, from last month?

If You Want to Look Like an Italian Police Officer, Just Paint “POLIZIA” on the Side of Your Lamborghini Gallardo, Like This

I do.

Good times.

Well, since then, this vehicle has been making waves, you know, getting pulled over by the SFPD, getting ticketed by SFMTAMUNIDPTSFBC meter maids (Tough People, Good Jobs), and getting towed outta Chinatown like a beached whale.

And you know what the little people, the tiny topolino, those boring, mousy types who can only dream of being piloti di Lamborghini  or a sexy-time lover of piloti di Lamborghini, you know what they do? They whip out their cell phones and then post photos to the Internet.

Fucking haters!

As here on Market last month, via my Samsung Galaxy Note II phablet:

And here’s an effort from Lulu Vision a few days later:

But there was no ticket issued for this particular yellow zone violation. Lucky Devil!

Now speak of the Devil, El Diablo, here’s a list of recent citations issued for this whip by the SFMTA:

02/13/13  T37C STREET CLEANING  $62.00
02/25/13  T202.1 PRK METER DOWNTOWN  $72.00
02/28/13  T37C STREET CLEANING  $62.00
03/01/13  T38C WHITE ZONE  $98.00
03/02/13  V22502A OVER 18 IN. FRM CURB  $57.00
03/02/13  T38C WHITE ZONE  $98.00
03/02/13  T38A RED ZONE  $98.00

Of course the cops don’t care about you parking in the yellow zone when they’re pulling you over, as here on Kearny. Also via Lulu Vision:

Hey look what came out of the Lambo –  it’s a quarter ounce of medicinal Mary Jane plus a quarter gallon of medicinal luxury vodka.

Good times. Good times for 32-year-old Mr. Cheng.

(Good thing that vodka was capped, Brother. Anyway, the SFPD let him go with a ticket.)

But getting towed from the front of the Chinatown McDonalds because of corrupt Rose Pak’s Chinese New Year’s parade, well that’s the limit, am I right, people?

Via Angimm11

I’ll tell you, I don’t know if this kind of exoticar lifestyle is sustainable.

Well let’s the driver of this car can Go Forth And Sin No More…

How Many Goddam Pit Bulls are Too Many Goddam Pit Bulls for One McDonalds? Eight on Haight

Friday, September 28th, 2012

This was the scene last night at the famous Micky D’s at the end of Haight Street at Stanyan near famous Hippy Hill.

I passed by two pit-bull-looking dogs outside at the rear entrance, two pit-bull-looking dogs inside the store with owners on the way to the bathroom, two pit-bull-looking dogs with owners in line to buy food,* and two pit-bull-looking dogs as I exited out the front steps.**

Now, some of them might have been less than a year old, mere pups I suppose, and some of them might have been presa canarios or whathaveyou, but goddam, I didn’t expect to encounter eight fighting dogs*** in one minute at one McDonalds.

I’m not particularly afraid of dogs at all and I’ve never been bitten, but that was my reaction.

And here’s an update – the Dollar Menu is still there but it’s not as prominent as before, as if they don’t want you to see it, it seems.

See you in about a year or so, Haight Street McDonalds.

*At this point, I was looking for an exit strategy, like if they all went Hera and Bane on me, I’d have hopped on one of the counters, that kind of thing. 

** Sans food. I was going to get a large order of fries and two side salads for $4-something for a special lady friend but the line was kind of long and there was some kind of kerfuffle going on so I said the Hell with this and left for the WF right across the street.

***The most I’ve seen in one place at one time.
