Possible Suicide This Morning on Stuart Between Market and Mission – Very Close to OccupySF Base Camp

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

Don’t have the details for this death on the sidewalk of Stuart just south of Don Chee Way (which is now the southern border of OccupySF these days).

Per Justin Beck:

“A guy apparently just died on Steuart near Don Chee Way. Paramedics tried CPR but then covered up the body. No other info yet.”

That’s Occupy in the background – I have no idea of the dead person’s possible relationship to OccupySF or the Hotel Vitale:

The cookhouse for OccupySF is in the lower left-hand corner, first-responder SFFD Engine 13 is in the lower right, and “Spa Vitale” is on top:

Tent City in SoMA! Are People Lining Up On 10th Street Just to Get the New DPW Food Truck Permits?

Monday, March 7th, 2011

Well, first it was all like this, and then it was all like this, but now it’s like you can’t legally sell food from a food truck how many hundreds of feet from a legacy restaurant? Isn’t that called corporate welfare when you try to protect struggling bidnesses from competition? (Alls I know is that the Golden Gate Restaurant Association thinks this whole sitch is “fair,” which is a big fat clue that it’s not.)

Anywho, this was the scene on (speaking of corporate welfare) Tenth Street in SoMA betwixt Market and Mission over the weekend on Saturday. The white signs say “DPW Mobile Food Permits – Line Starts Here,” or something. (I could have broken stride to check, I could have stopped to actually talk with these poor souls, you know, to find out, but I haven’t renewed my journalistic license since the SFPD started charging $50 a year…)

Is the new mobile food fad just another “DEAD END” forĀ gastronomicĀ entrepreneurs? (Not sure if this new gold rush is ending or if its still beginning, actually.)
