OMG, Here’s a San Francisco Bus You’d WANT to Ride – It’s LABERINTO! – But “PRIVATE COACH, NOT FOR HIRE”

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

Look at this beaut blocking Samsome for a few light cycles – it’s LABERINTO!

You know who I thought could have been on board?

Rico

Suave

But the welcoming paint scheme is marred by this:

PRIVATE COACH

NOT FOR HIRE

See?

The Line at the “Curry Up Now” Food Truck on Bush is Now Even More Insane – Curling Onto Sansome At Times

Friday, August 2nd, 2013

This food truck line has it all:

1. Length 

2. Girth

3. Staying Power

Here it is – all these people (except for that one dude) are queueing up for Indian food at the truck parked far off in the distance:

So what’s stopping you from competing with this food truck?

Regulation. Recently-passed neo-corporatist regulation sponsored by Golden Gate Restaurant Association-loving Supervisor Scott Wiener that is.

Oh well.

Consider this CUN truck a pioneer, a ’49er or possibly even ’48er, in the Great Food Truck Gold Rush

CW Nevius Gets It Done! A Few Words From His Now-Paywalled Column Stirs Government Workers Into Action – Or Not

Friday, June 21st, 2013

You know, San Francisco columnist CW Nevius used to complain about all the people commenting underneath his writings. In fact, he would dedicate some of his bits to rip on all the uncouths who dared contradict his conclusions.

(I’ll bet he misses those days now, he misses the time when he had hundreds and hundreds of commenters on SFGate instead of just a handful on the Chronicle website.)

Anyway, here’s the latest, about a BART / SFMTA / MUNI entrance near the intersection of Sutter and Sansome:

A sign on the barrier said the portal would be closed until June 4. When that date passed, a commuter added a sign that said: “Or whenever we get around to it.” The date was then changed to June 21.”

But Nevius got BART to change the sign to say that the opening date was pushed up to June 20th. See? Here’s how it looked the morning of 6/20:

And here’s the same location on the afternoon of 6/20:

Oh Nevius, when will all your incessant source greasing and beat sweetening pay off?

*OMG, the line. I’ve never seen a food truck line as long as CUN’s over such a length of time. Check it out at Bush and Sansome around lunchtime. It’s been that way for months and months and months. CUN is making food truck history, I’ll tell you.

Racist or Not? San Francisco Pedicab Rickshaw Driver Wears a Conical Asian Hat

 As seen on Sansome – click to expand

I don’t know, just last month I saw actual rickshaws in Japan, where the name comes from. But rickshaws are banned in some other parts of the world for being too dehumanizing or demeaning or something.

Above, we have a bicycle rickshaw driver in a Conical Asian Hat.

Oh little boy, do you think that’s racist? Now don’t be afraid to express yourself: 

Fair ‘nough.
