Judgment Day for the Former Bread and Butter Cafe in the 94117

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

Not much happening at the corner of Hayes and Ashbury lately, not since this incident reported by Hoodline.

But now it’s being cleaned out, with detritus propped up on the sidewalk.

I says to myself, I says, “Man, that neon Heineken sign won’t last long, and that Sierra Nevada sign as well.”

And they were the first to go.

But the rest is still out there – have a look see, why not.

Only In Marin: An “Oriental Rug House” What’s Been on the Verge of “Closing” Down for Years and Years – EVERYTHING MUST GO

Friday, February 17th, 2017

Vox populi via Yelp:

“I came in one time thinking they were having a sale b/c they were going out of business (there was a large sign posted outside.) When I asked when they were closing, they said they weren’t, and pointed out that the sign had the word “below” printed in small letters on top of the words “going out of business sale prices” (the word “below” was in such small print, it was too hard to see while driving by.) When I commented that I thought the sign was misleading, the owner – or whoever – became extremely hostile and started yelling at me (stuff like “what’s wrong w/ your eyes, can’t you see the word “below” is printed there, what’s misleading about that?”) I mean, it was really, really clear that the sign was intended to give the initial impression that the place is going out of business — anyone could see that.”

Seattle’s HOMEGROWN Sandwich Chain OPENING SOON at Troubled 222 Battery

Thursday, December 29th, 2016

That was the windup, now here’s the pitch.

They look almost ready to open at this star-crossed building what’s been shut down for years and years, IIRC.

Read all about it at Eater SF

(And the new bay area locations are not to be confused with HOMEGROWN OAKLAND?)

Oh, the Seattle location has surprisingly low Yelp rating, IMO.

Anyway, this was the scene yesterday with the future “Sandwich Partners” getting training inside:

“LOVESAC Opening March 2017?” – Heh, You Said “Sack”

Thursday, December 29th, 2016

And then you head to the website and it’s all, “As a LoveSac Member…”

As seen on Market somewhere:

And I’m like, “Heh, you said ‘member.'”

Good times.

Oh, as seen on TV.

Bonus: Happy Fun Slander* via Yelp:

This store and brand is a huuuuge waste of money. The mark-up is ridiculous. It may cost them 50-75 TOPS to make these BEAN BAGS that are made with “Memory Foam” but they sell them for upwards to a thousand bucks. Not to mention the Manager is extremely obnoxious and the associates are purranas. They tell you the couches have a lifetime warranty when in fact each little piece to the couch has about a 2 year warranty and the only thing that’s lifetime is the wood frame… Umm.. that’ll do me a lot of good. Save your money and time and go somewhere else.

*Potentially, you never know. And unless you’re super sure about all the deets, you should always say defamation, as that’s the umbrella term for libel and slander, mas or menos.
