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:
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 HaightTuesday, 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.

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:

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.

Cheese and rice, Randy Shaw. What color is the fucking sky in your world?
[Wow, touchy touchy we are, huh?]
Here is a video:
