TweetFinally, news of some movement on the resuscitation of Mervyns Heights, from the SocketSite. That’s right, next week Target will officially request authorization to build a urbanified store at the corner of Geary and Masonic at the site of our defunct Mervyns, that brokedown palace. Hurray! Charlize Theron, if she ever gave consideration to the Godforsaken windswept [...]
TweetAs they said back when FaceBook was popular, back when FB was the New Thang: “Yes! San Francisco Needs a Target!“ Until we get a store open in there, feel free to hang out on the roof and groove on the gigantic blue mervyn’s sign whilst taking in the views: Click to expand See you [...]
TweetThe average wait for an emergency room visit at UCSF‘s Parnassus Heights campus is 4.5 hours for people with mild medical emergencies? Wow. Wouldn’t it be nicer to pay $5 to check-in online and then wait at home rather than in the ER? That’s what UCSF thinks. Check it: “UCSF patients with minor medical needs [...]
Tweet[Oh, SocketSite is, once again, all over this sitch.] It’s happening, man. It’s finally happening! Down at the Planning Department, they’re inking up the rubber “APPROVED” stamp for our new Target Store up at Geary and Masonic. Here’s item 12 for tomorrow’s meeting: Planning Commission Hearing Thu, Jul 28, 2011 at 12:00pm @ City Hall, Commission [...]
TweetWell, here it is, the 2200 block of Octavia Street betwixt Washington and Jackson in San Francisco’s tony Specific Whites District right near writer Danielle Steel’s large white mansion and just up the hill from our 3.5-star Yelp-rated German Consulate.* See? It’s got a brick surface and it’s curvy, sort of: There it is on [...]
TweetLos Angeles City Council President Eric Garcetti wants to be The Next Mayor of Los Angeles, so he’s coming up to the 415 to try to raise some cash. Lots and lots and lots of cash. Here he is, the son of Gilbert Salvadore Iberri “Gil” Garcetti. (Junior sort of looks like the guy what sold [...]
TweetWell it looks like the Upcoming Races Page at The Usual Suspects might need to get updated for District 9 because Uptown Almanac’s Kevin Montgomery declared himself a candidate for the Board of Supervisors on April 1, 2012: KevMo 2012 from daniel jarvis on Vimeo. Hahahaha, jk? I think his pro-cell phone reception platform will prove [...]
TweetSee? Click to expand If you can call Bradford a street, as some do. Anyway, this is a view of part of it.
TweetSee? Aslan is on the move at Mervyn’s Heights: Click to expand And if that’s not enough for you, somebody hung a sign what says City Target (although it’s all bunched up so I couldn’t see it clearly. So that’s it. Did you know that Target likes opening new stores in October (in addition to, [...]
TweetBrand-new giant signs like this one never lie: Click to expand I’ll tell you, area NIMBYs got steamrolled on this one. It’s not that certain millionaire, property-owning ladies residing west of the Western Addition and south of North of NoPA are happy about this situation, but they didn’t get any traction due to massive community support, [...]
TweetWell, you know, the rich, home-owning, millionaire NIMBY ladies of NOPNA (the number one homeowner’s association in the Western Addition) had steam coming out of their ears a few years back when they realized how hopeless their plan of keeping Tar-ghey from infecting their “NoPA” neighborhood was becoming. Good times. Oh well. Mervyn’s Heights is [...]
TweetWell, this was the big rumor of May 2014: Taylor Swift Rumored To Buy Historical Presidio Heights Mansion for $18M But the Taylor Swift people said no way, Jose. But hey, look what’s on the front door now, a weathered posting: Here’s my stab at it: MR HU XU AND I MISS XIA XU OWN [...]
TweetLet’s take a peek through the open door: The part of this lecture that I overheard appeared to do a good job about hammering home the rule about RPD workers not driving* park vehicles on the grass. Here’s your context, from last year: “Woman killed by SF truck identified as outrage grows - Vivian Ho and [...]
TweetSometimes. But dividing the cost of a security guard among 20-something families is prolly pretty expensive, so at other times there’s only an empty SUV posted as sentry. Click to expand And best of all, the place is Caucasians-only, sort of: “In a small brochure, Object Lessons in Homebuilding, developers Baldwin and Howell promoted racial covenants [...]
TweetHere’s is all I know about the giant sundial: “This sundial is located in Hilltop Park in the Bayview District of San Francisco. The steel gnomon is 78 feet long.” Click to expand Big, isn’t it?
TweetBenton Avenue, Bernal Heights:
TweetFor one brief shining moment, some thought Taylor Swift would buy this long-empty fixer-upper up in Presidio Heights. Then there was the art-thieving squatter – he’s imprisoned now, AFAIK. And now this is how things looked last week: I count five sk8tr boyz recording their tricks up there. Look for the results on the YouTube. […]
TweetI see this dude all the time: He rules the 94118
TweetSo there are four possible answer sets to these two questions, so you’ve got a 25% chance of success by simple guessing. Now if you know then answers, then you know the answers and you won’t be tricked and you’ll win. OTOH, if you use INTUITION (the Heart) or REASONING (the Mind), I don’t think […]
