When they were building this thing last year, I thought it was going to be a tall apartment building…

The Horrible Pedestrians and Bike Riders of the So-Called Great Highway, Way Out There in the SunsetMonday, December 8th, 2014
An overly-confident pedestrian is a dead pedestrian, sometimes:
Oh, here’s the same scene a few blocks up the road:
Oh, what’s that, jaywalking is merely a “legal construct” and “Vision Zero” 2024 is going to prevent all transportation-related deaths in San Francisco County within a decade?
Saying Something Nice About the Sunset District: It’s Right Next to Strawberry Hill / Island in Golden Gate ParkTuesday, November 25th, 2014
I’ll tell you, I used to live in the Sunset District, for a short time, when I was in my twenties, and now I’m in my forties and most of what I remember is the relentless fog.
And these days, I keep hearing from the current residents, the Fog Truthers, people who Deny The Fog.
Some people in the Sunset go there every day / every week, so good for them.
And all the Airbnb’ers of the Funset should get on over there as well, if only just once.
So there, I’ve said something nice about the Sunset…
The Current La Playa Safeway is a Time Machine: It Will Take You Back – Visit Before It Gets Replaced, Replaced By ThisWednesday, July 9th, 2014
I guess the Safeway people have resolved not to put any more money into the La Playa store, and that makes sense considering that The Future is just around the corner.
The current set-up is straight outta the 1970’s and it looks it, for better or worse – it’s shabby-chic but without the chic:

No matter, Safeway La Playa is the place people hit for bonfire wood and cheap beer before heading out to an evening at Ocean Beach, and that will always be true.
Twas ever thus.
The Outer Richmond District: Where Every Day is Christmas and Every Night is New Year’s Eve – Parking on the “Lawn”Monday, July 7th, 2014
When SFGov hasn’t the will to enforce the laws and regs it enacts and you ask them about it, a govt rep will start talking about “complaint-driven” enforcement.
And that means no enforcement at all.
So feel free to pave over your front yard and then paint your brand-new parking spaces in alternating red and green, you know, to celebrate, Christmas-style:
(Actually, the most exciting time in the Outer Richmond is the evening of the Fourth of July and the morning of the Fifth of July, what with the illegal fireworks and all…)
Oh Outer Richmond:
You’ve got the biggest heart
Sometimes I think you’re just too good for me
Every day is Christmas, and every night is New Year’s Eve
Will you keep on loving me
Will you keep on, will you keep on
Bringing out the best in me?
Judgment Day is Nigh: Signs for the “Oversize Vehicle Overnight Parking Restriction Pilot” Have Been PostedThursday, June 12th, 2014
I don’t actually know if they’re enforcing the new RV parking restrictions in the Panhandle part of Golden Gate Park yet, but here are the brand-new signs, anyway:

Of course, 22 feet is pretty long – that’s enough to cover your Ford Excursions, your Chevy Suburbans and even your Maybach 62‘s. And seven feet is pretty high, so the rules seem fair enough if the goal is to kick the RV liveaboards out of the Panhandle.
But I haven’t heard or seen any RVs getting the heave-ho yet…
