Look What Our SFMTA has Done to the Geary / Masonic Hairball – “Such Lovely Trees” have All Been Given the Chop

The Tree People are not happy, even though they’ve been promised replacement trees.

I’ll tell you, I can’t exactly see how it’s even remotely possible that whatever SFGov is doing to “improve” this intersection, plus the 3000 feet of Masonic to the south down to Fell, will “transform” this area, oh well.

Anyway, the large stand of old growth street trees what used to be out in front of 5 Masonic (in the triangle where you can see the light blue Mini Cooper) will get some kind of art installation. Will that be an “improvement?” IDK, I guess, for some people.

In the meantime, things are looking pretty bleak up there at windblown Mervyn’s Heights…

UNPROVEN THEORY: Proposed Designs for All “Local Interest” T-Shirts at City Target are 1) Phoned In, Literally; and 2) Never Rejected

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

[Gruff Man with Brooklyn Accent] So put in a Golden Gate Bridge with waves below and some fucking seagulls above and surround it with a heart. And then how about a California in Miami Blue except make it look like the Coca Cola script and then throw in some fucking trees like they have in L.A. And give me an SF surrounded by a fucking circle or a square or a triangle, whatever. And give me a Fog City like it’s a baseball logo – make it Dodger Blue, or Royals Blue, or just any kind of dark blue what’ll just scream “San Fran” to the buying public. And for the rest of it, just surprise me, anything will do.

[Textile Factory Owner] Yes sir. Right away, sir.

[Buyer for City Target, Living Somewhere in the Central Time Zone]: We love your samples! What genius creativity! We’ll start off with 100 gross of each design. We’ll pay whatever your asking price is.

According to one passerby, in SoMA:

His GF also had a thumbs down. So no sale for these two fans…

Signs of Full Employment in Frisco: MINI MASS HIRE at Target Stores, Saturday, Dec 10th, Noon – 4 PM

Friday, December 9th, 2016

(Ah memories, back when NOPNA tried to say NOPE-NA to City Target West. But even the millionaire landed gentry of the “NOPA” Western Addition shop here now, even though they hate the idea of living so close to a busy Target store. Of course, they’d still kill this operation if they could, but they can’t, so oh well. And oh, prices are higher here at a City Target than a regular Target that you can find down in the Colma Daly City Serramonte area oh well.)

Hey, does Target operate the Starbucks at Geary and Masonic? Sure looks that way:

It Was PARK LIKE YOU FEEL DAY at Our Local City Target West: Diagonal White Parking Lines are All What’s Left of Mervyn’s, and Sears

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

You can pave over white lines, but they have a way of coming back. Confused shoppers didn’t know which lines to obey, on this day:

Bye bye Sears.

Bye bye Mervyns.

Target Trolls Frisco with “SAN FRAN” T-Shirts – Is This a Joke? – No, Seriously, Is This a Joke?

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

[UPDATEKatie Dowd of the San Francisco Chronicle / SFGate weighs in here. And here’s . And KCRA-TV of Sacto (or Sac, or Sactown – the list for Sacramento goes on) weighs in as well.]

Read the news and turn the pages:

“17 Reasons Why It’s Okay To Call It Frisco – San Fran is still strictly forbidden.”

And yet, here comes City Target West. at Geary and Masonic on the west si-iiide:

I dare you, Gentle Reader, to purchase this SAN FRAN shirt and walk about town.

READER NOTES:

“Balderdash,” Caen wrote. “The toughest guys on the old S.F. waterfront, neither rubes nor tourists, called it Frisco, and no effete journalist would have tried to correct them.”

There is *nothing* ironic about my Frisco usage. Nothing.

Frisco is okay. It is “San Fran” that is to be hated.

Nice flag-keeping there, City Centre Mall!

Turns Out That the Best Way to Fill Up the Parking Lot at the Horrible LUCKY PENNY Diner was SHUTTING THE PLACE DOWN

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Here’s the lot of our former LUCKY PENNY (“People Hate Us On YELP!”) as it is these days:

Man, the only time I’ve seen as many cars here was that week in December when news got out that the joint was going kaput. (Otherwise, this place was like a ghost town in the daytime…)

So now this parcel of land can fulfill its highest and best purpose – as a parking lot for neighboring Trader Joe’s #100:

Good times.

Hey, are people living inside the Lucky Penny, our Brokedown Palace these days? IDK. But what are the people in there doing?

Oh well.

SFPD Arresting Shoplifters at the Mall: For Some Reason, This is a BIG Issue in the Twitterloin, But a NOTHINGBURGER at City Target West

Friday, February 19th, 2016

Shoplifters, like this one

in the Twitterloin District are a big concern.

Yet, a scene like this a few miles to the west raises…

7J7C1185 copy

NO hackles at all.

Why’s that?

IDK, but Out West, out in the Western Addition, SFGov doesn’t spend eight figures a year on non-profits so there aren’t any “organizers” to “organize” against the functioning of the SFPD?

Generally speaking, residents to the west of the Twitterloin don’t want to micromanage the SFPD, for whatever reason…
