Get on Amazon. It’s evil, I know, but they deliver overnight.

Listening to (conservative) A.M. radio this morning, and all the old farts were calling in to complain about how eScooters are dangerous and killing people right and left. Yes, this is also the "guns don't kill people"/personal responsibility crowd. Quite the pickle.

You know how dog-friendly offices are all the rage in SF? I just saw a woman who works in an architecture firm next door walk into her office carrying a rabbit.

WTF man

Portrero is a very "locals only" neighborhood in that there's really no reason for anyone to go there unless there's a show at Bottom of the Hill (rare, because that place kind of sucks)

Thee Parkside and Connecticut Yankee are good bars close by (unless Parkside has a show)

Also I think Hayes Valley or Lower Haight are more stereotypical SF movie ish but that's probably just because I go there more often

I walked all over the place in potrero and yeah it seemed like everyone knew one another.
I'm only in town for like 36 hrs and staying in palo alto and it's gross.

That's a great thing to do but potentially problematic if you take a route that's too hilly. PA has nice ridiculously expensive homes but not a whole lot interesting going on

When you wander into Manny’s at 16th and Valencia, everything is chill. It’s a big space. And it’s crowded. People are working on projects, sipping $1.75 cups of coffee, or reading the literature they can purchase in-house from an adjunct of Dog-Eared Books located in the store (curated titles from Franz Fanon, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Howard Zinn and many others for sale).

This space feels casual and accessible. That’s the idea. Owner Manny Yekutiel, in fact, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with United to Save the Mission, a coalition of more than a dozen neighborhood nonprofits and activist groups, to ensure the “community” is copacetic with his “community space.”

The Mission anti-gentrification activists wanted a “bicultural, bilingual environment for Mission families” with bilingual signage here. And that happened. They wanted Yekutiel to hire bilingual staff that “reflects the availability of qualified applicants in the local community,” and the staff here is now heavily composed of local people of color (many are also LGBTQ, like Yekutiel). United to Save the Mission called for “moderate price points” — and not only is the coffee a buck seventy-five, but Tecate runs you two bucks and a meal starts at six. The food here, in fact, is prepared on-site by Farming Hope, a nonprofit employing homeless, formerly incarcerated, and low-income community members — and they earn all the food revenue. 

Quote
“Boycott Manny’s and its ‘woke-washing’ of the Mission,” blared an email sent Dec. 5 to media outlets by “The Lucy Parsons Project,” a self-described “radical black queer direct action group fighting anti-blackness in the Bay Area.”

“Manny’s as a gentrifying wine-bar, cafe and fake ‘social justice’ space in the Mission District, will only accelerate the raising of rents and the displacement of Black, Latinx, disabled and trans/queer people in the Mission,” the letter continued. “Additionally, the proprietor of Manny’s, Emmanuel Yekutiel, has unequivocally espoused racist, Zionist, pro-Israel ideals that we will not tolerate or accept in our community. … We will not tolerate gentrifiers and Zionists attempts at invading and destroying our community through ‘woke-washing’!!”
