The Happy Morning Joggers of the Tenderloin – Could This Be the New UC Hastings Running Club, the “Legal Eagles?”

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Usually when people run in the corrupt Twitterloin / Civic Center / Tenderloin area, it’s because they’re either victims or perpetrators, right?

So just jogging around for fun, well, that’s something new I think.

All the deets from the oldest and largest law school in the West:

Purpose: To encourage healthy living and life balance through regular athletic activity; to promote a positive image of UC Hastings to the larger Bay Area community through involvement in charity runs; and to foster a sense of community at UC Hastings”

Marinello School of Beauty Bounces Back from Trayvon Verdict Protest – Now There’s Less Broken Glass in the Twitterloin

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

First came the Trayvon protesters, down Market Street.

Then came the workers who put up plywood sheets.

Then came the taggers.

Then the plywood got painted over.

Then glaziers did a proper repair job, just yesterday.

So what’s this, Willie Brown failed in his attempts to have SFO and Third Street and the western span of the San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge named after him and this will have to do?

OK fine.

Web Designer and “Girl in Tech” Kari Suleman Offers $30 for a “TaskRabbit” to Wait in Line for Her at Dottie’s True Blue Cafe

Monday, July 15th, 2013

Per Mid-Market resident Bluoz:

“It was inevitable. make 30 bucks waiting in line at Dotties at 6th and Stevenson – https://www.taskrabbit.com/tenderloin-san-francisco/t/wait-in-line-at-dotties-for-us

And here’s Kari‘s ad at the Task Rabbit website:

“Please wait in line for us at Dottie’s starting at 10am. Text us when you are about 20 minutes from the front (5 or so people deep). “

(“Aren’t you a good task bunny! Here, have a little* cabbage.”)

Is this the so-called Mid-Market Renaissance?

Of course, this is how the “Renaissance” got started:

“Alvin Dworman, the owner of a Market Street building proposed as the new headquarters for Twitter, gave sharply discounted office space in the same building to former Mayor Gavin Newsom’s campaign for lieutenant governor — a political contribution valued at more than $11,000, campaign finance records show.

Weeks after the gift last fall, Newsom officials aided negotiations between Twitter and Dworman by offering the Internet company a payroll tax freeze as an incentive to move into Dworman’s building, a 1 million-square-foot art deco structure at 1355 Market St. once known as the San Francisco Mart.

*Actually, $30 seems generous to me…

You can see the flat spots on the left there – Golden Gate Park and The Presidio.

Of course the high-rise blocks are features of Randy Shaw‘s corrupt Twitterloin, aka the Mid-Market area, aka NeMa (“New Market”), aka The Tenderloin, aka The Yammerloin, aka The “Uptown” Tenderloin, aka Skid Row, aka Sixth Street, aka Lower Nob Hill, aka “Downtown.”

“Serving the Hastings Community” it says on the side.

So Hastings still has unarmed uniformed security guards? IDK. Back in the 1990′s there was some push for them to cowboy up with sidearms* but some people thought it a bad idea.

Anyway, presenting one of the few police vehicles in San Francisco not made by Ford…

*Or “assault weapons” in the lexicon of our day.
