Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

The new ones are in the back, on Divisadero:

If you can see some great difference betwixt the stylings of these street AND you think it’s a great idea to tax the Little People in order to replace perfectly good, utilitarian, existing street lights, then YOU’RE a part of the problem.

Sry.

Frisco Goes Full Florida – What are All These Miami People Doing in Town All of a Sudden? Photographic Proof!

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

I says to myself, I says, what is this, did all of Miami Beach come to the Western Addition?

And then I see the Florida plates:

Oh, that explains that.  And then I notice the bluest Camaro I’ve ever seen.

Speaking of which, more Florida plates, this time in the 94102:

(Florida plates, heh.)

And what’s this, a brand-new LEAP bus?

Cf. this brand-new eBay bus. “Surf blue?” How about Bay Window Beige instead?

I cry foul:

Your monochromatic blues, your gold-wrapped Lambos, they all belong in the Sunshine State, non?

And the latest insult, on Van Ness?

Shouldn’t the neon pink MIAMI AD SCHOOL be in Miami and not SF?

We’re not ready for all this. Take your pinks and blues and head on home, Florida!

Hurray! The Memphis Minnie’s “Big Pig” Van is Back on the Road, After Being “Destroyed” in a Giants Victory Riot on Haight

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Remember when our San Francisco Giants won the World Series the time before last?

It was back in 2010. Good times. I celebrated by climbing on top of the Memphis Minnie’s Barbeque Joint And Smokehouse Ford van parked on the street in the Lower Haight.

There I was, looking fierce bouncing up and down in my little black dress and orange pumps, along with bunch of other people.* We few, we Band of Brothers, we Baseball Furies.

Anyway, as the above link to Haighteration shows, the Big Pig, she got messed up.

But here she is back on the road in 2013, wavy roof panels and all:

I don’t know, I think this ride is worth more than it would have been without the battle scars from aught-ten.

I think this rig is now a historic artifact worthy of preservation.

Keep on keeping on, Memphis Minnie’s.

*Oh, not really. Actually, after watching on a friend’s big screen (’cause I don’t I have cable ’cause I want the Comcast monopoly to die die die) I had to ride my bike on up to Pac Heights. The city was electric, all over, not just in the Mission and in the Haights.

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?

[Wow, touchy touchy we are, huh?]

Here is a video:

Here is the original version.

OMG, the New “Google Offers” from Google is Just Like GroupOn, Except It’s for Places You Like: 50% Off of Little Star Pizza!

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Remember back in the day, when Little Star Pizza had a GroupOn type of 50% off deal?

Well, that one didn’t last long – sold out with a quickness.

But now, a similar deal is back, courtesy of Google Offers.

See?

Note that this if for Early Birds only, so you’ll need to be seated by 6:30 PM. (Little Stars are busy enough during prime-time dinner hours already, right?)

Hurray!

Also, Hurry! As this deal won’t last long.

So far, all of the other deals offered by Google Offers since it began in San Francisco have been good as well.

Like this:

Now, you know Little Star, right?

Western Addition 846 Divisadero St.

Mission District 400 Valencia St.

Albany 1175 Solano Ave

(Little Star is now in Albany? Wonder what the Zachary’s people think of that?)

Bon Courage Google Offers!

Bon Courage Peu D’Etoile!

OMG, Popular Brenda’s French Soul Food is Now Open for Dinner on a Safe Block in the Otherwise Crime-Ridden Tenderloin

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Will popular, four-star rated Brenda’s French Soul Food be as popular for dinner as it’s been for breakfast, brunch, and lunch?

Only Time Will Tell.

As recently seen on Polk, near the western fringe of the crime-ridden Tenderloin. Criminals tend to not like crowds of potential witnesses, so dread nought.

Why not get in line at 652 Polk betwixt Eddy and Turk, dine and then make a post to the Yelp, as thousands have before you?
