What’s This? You Can Buy Beer at the Chipotles in Metreon on Fourth Near Mission? Well, There’s Goes the Neighborhood!

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

I’ll tell you, I don’t have strong feelings either way about Chipotle’s. It’s like whatever, dude.

But check it, Chipotle’s is selling beer in SoMA on a LIQUOR LICENSE PENDING basis?

I’m as shocked as you are:

Now isn’t alcohol something people don’t want sold so close to Tenderloin Housing Clinic Beyond Chron-editing poverty pimp Randy Shaw’s corrupt Twitterloin / Skid Row North / “Uptown”* Tenderloin?

I thought so but now I don’t know.

Anyway, these days we have a place what sells fast food and beer together, just like a French McDonalds or whatever.

Oh, here’s what I could dig up on any liquor license application. It aint much.

Hey, remember the Redevelopment Agency? Here’s their No Irish Need Apply announcement from back in the day:

“Request for proposal for General Contractor Services for tenant-improvement build-out of a quick-serve kiosk restaurant, San Francisco Soup Company, in the food court of the Metreon, located on the ground floor at 135 4th St., San Francisco, CA 94103.

San Francisco Soup Company will select an applicant following staff’s evaluation of the bids, Statements of Qualifications and oral interviews.

This opportunity is open to all businesses, both for-profit and non-profit. Applicants and SFRA certified Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise are strongly encouraged to apply. Be advised that the SF Soup Company and SF Redevelopment Agency are committed to vigorous equal opportunity employment.”

All right, enjoy.


By the summer of 2008, going “uptown” in San Francisco will mean heading to the Tenderloin.”

Cheese and rice, Randy Shaw. What color is the fucking sky in your world?
