I think I hate San Francisco. - Page 148

Perhaps, but it's much like blaming Greece for the fall of the Roman Empire.

I did read the article. I just didn't agree with it.

which is not altogether unreasonable.

Something everyone can hate: MTV's The Real World returning to San Francisco.
Quote:
After yesterday's announcement that MTV's The Real World would be returning to San Francisco for its 29th (and possibly final) season, our initial reaction was, "Where will they be living so we can gawk at the renovations?" Followed shortly by, "How can I avoid that neighborhood at all costs?" Today, after a little bit of digging, we learn the cast of the next Real World: San Francisco will most likely be proud residents of 1244 Sutter Street, a two-story party pad within stumbling distance of Polk Street in Nob Hill.

The space between Polk Street and the Regency Center on Van Ness, built in 1911, was once home to the Avalon Ballroom, a Bill Graham-affiliated venue frequented by a number of music legends in the late sixties. Janis Joplin, the Grateful Dead and the Doors all had headlining sets at the spot during its heyday.

Sometime over the next few months, however, the building's 21,900 square feet of space across two floors (plus a mezzanine and another 10,000 square feet of ground floor offices), will be done over with the sort of hip updates and product placement opportunities that MTV tends to throw into the renovated spaces for their eager young cast members.

It is called "Urban lumberjack" by many and is just as common in Brooklyn as anywhere in the Bay Area.

Well, for the 2013 crowd - perhaps the following example:

 

 

 

But for my generation, the following example is what took place on a regular basis:

 

 

Then again, my generation started off with song lyrics you could actually understand.  Then after I got older, it evolved into just screaming.

Having just been to San Francisco for a few days for the America's Cup trials, I have to say that I was a bit surprised by what I saw. So many people that are probably best described as "scruffy." On the other hand, our Jack Russell terriers found people up there fascinating. Apparently they have all sorts of wonderful smells. If you're a dog, that is.

Saru definitely gets better Yelp than Hamano. But we ate at Saru once... the wife vetoed any returns. Something about a lack of authenticity, weird service, bad atmosphere. We'll try Kiss Sushi.

Was at bi-rite last Saturday. No Line. Was very good, but not really life changing.

Crikey! Finally, the perfect use for a phrase that I've wanted to use for over 30 years.

 

For some background, for those of you who didn't go to a prep school, you're never told how to dress appropriately, but you're often somewhat rudely told when what you're wearing doesn't meet with the approval of the other boys. The phrase that I remember the most was, "I had a blazer [or whatever] like that once. Then my dad got a job."

 

This "urban lumberjack" style wants me to use that phrase in a very, very bad way. Not that I actually would, of course.

But my guess is that Sakana is as good as sushi gets in SF. Actually my in-laws from Kyoto went there when they visited, and really liked it...

Hmm. Thats odd. I went there only once and got major food poisoning. The main chef there looks to be drug dependent. I was with a couple if ER nurses from San Fran General. They said he looked and showed the traits.
