Three-Dollar Chicken: The Ethical Dilemma of the Food Pantry Black Market by Albert Samaha

1. Do you see that “Market Street Specials” graphic, The Bold Italic? It’s better than anything you’ve ever done* since you came to town to try to make money hawking made-in-San-Fran goods to clueless tourists and your fellow newcomers, you dig? It serves THE READER, right? Oh, what’s that, TBI? Your job is to lose millions upon millions year after year to serve up a fat tax break for your corporate masters Back East? Well, mission accomplished.

2. And srsly, I don’t think it’s the job of SFGov-funded COMMUNITY AMBASSADORS to confiscate food in the Twitterloin.

3. Uh, the vast majority of food market food comes on 18-wheelers, you know, on pallets and stuff. (Speaking of corporate tax breaks…)

4. Adieu, writer Albert Samaha? :( It’s been real.

5. And finally, ah memories. Find the Crispy Hexagons cereal and win:

Friday, May 17th, 2013

(Or “Krave,” as you Yanks call it.)

And Big Cheez-Its, that’s also available at a steep discount on the corner of 7th and Market these days.

But, cheez it, the cops! See them?

Do they ever do anything down here?

Everybody wins when big corporations, like, I don’t know, Wal-Mart, take big tax deductions for donating food and when donees sell it to happy customers. Hurray!

Kaepernicking is Ten Times Cheaper When You Buy from Bootleggers off the Street Instead of from the 49ers

At the Justin Herman Plaza official lunchtime 49ers trailer – 150 didgeridoos!?!

Now here we go, just $15 for a shirt that spells out Kaepernicking  for tout le monde to see.

It’s like a farmer’s market, but for t-shirts – Market Street, USA:

Perhaps all those millionaires at the San Francisco 49ers should lower their prices?

Remember to buy local!

NB: Sorry NFL, but lots of counterfeit stuff now has hologram tags as well. Oh well…c

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.

*Uptown. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Testify, Randy: 

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? 

Cold Busted: Members of the Pink Bag Mafia Lose the Food Bank Food They Were Trying to Sell in Mid Market – “Immigration Issues”

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Here’s the scene from yesterday AM at the corner of McAllister and Market and Jones in the Tenderloinish Civic Center Twitterloin area.

The woman involved were trying to sell the stuff they had gotten from a program what just gives it away with just one condition, can you guess? The condition is that you DON”T GO TO MID-MARKET AND SELL THIS FOOD ON THE SIDEWALK RIGHT NEXT TO THE THUGS SELLING STOLEN iPHONES.

Anyway, this one was a little different. Instead of just kicking the women off the corner, our SFPD (you see them all – there’s a bunch in there) actually took their stuff. And word on the street is that the cops didn’t want to bust them, in part, over “immigration issues.”

*A reference to “the first existential country song.” (Ignore the first ten seconds – it’s a little what you call saccharine.)

Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time” ranked “Wichita Lineman” at #192. 

“the greatest pop song ever composed” 

“one of those rare songs that seems somehow to exist in a world of its own – not just timeless but ultimately outside of modern music”

I know I need a small vacation

And the PG&E Lineman is still on the line
