Via Socketsite: Gavin Newsom’s City Residence is Officially For Sale – A $2.75 Million Asking Price for 1581 Masonic

Friday, July 8th, 2011

Of course Socketsite (“San Francisco real estate tips, trends, and the local scoop”) is all over this new listing for 1581 Masonic Avenue, you know, the place up in Ashbury Heights that was purchased just two years ago by former Mayor Gavin Newsom and former First Lady Jennifer Siebel Newsom.

The purchase price back then was $2,738,000, so that means that they’ll yield a “profit” of $12,000 if some lunkhead actually pays the asking price that was posted last night: $2,750,000.

They say it’s lovely on the inside:

OMG, the McDonalds “Dollar Menu” Has Returned to Haight Ashbury – McDoubles for All, Hurray!

Monday, June 6th, 2011

Remember back in the day, back last year in 2010 when the Hippie Hill McDonalds at the West End of Haight Ashbury on Stanyan got rid of its Dollar Menu, per Will “Big Daddy” Kane and Eric Thomas of KGO-TV?*

Well, the Tea Partiers nationwide had a field day with that one. And the “homeless veterans” and runaway teens, well they didn’t appreciate that price increase one bit.

But it’s all different now.

I first noticed when I was acting as a lookout for my friends who were shoplifting at the new Whole Foods Upper Haight – I could see a sign on the Micky D’s across the street that’s all “4 MEALS UNDER $3.**” See?

And I thought, well, that’s sounds like a pretty good deal, wonder if they brought back the Dollar Menu. Well, check it:

So, as of June 2011 anyway, you can enjoy the Great Recession Dollar Menu at McDonalds.

That means that they’ll add a patty to your $1.09 Cheeseburger and then lower the price to boot – that’s the Miracle of the McDouble.

Hurray!

Let’s hope they’ll still have the Dollar Menu running at the next Haight Ashbury Street Fair:

Sunday, June 12, 2011, from 11 am until 5:30 pm

*Per KGO, this store is located at Haight and “Canyon.”

**Apparently, that sign has been up there for the duration, since last year at least, To me, a $2.99 meal deal and the Dollar Menu go hand-in-hand, but I guess I was mistaken about that. (Your McDonald’s manager/ownerfeels that s/he should get about $7 per customer on average so can you imagine how offensive your order for three McDoubles to go is? It’s highly, highly offensive…)
