Karma Report: Storm-Felled Tree Avoids Cyclist, Kills Car

by Andrew Dalton on October 13, 2009

In case you live in a windowless basement apartment and haven’t left the house yet, you might not have noticed there’s an End of Days-type storm going on outside and it’s been fucking up everyone’s hair and MUNI commutes all morning.
Also, early this morning a brave cyclist on his ride to work nearly had a [...]

Aggressively Opining: Divisadero Improvements Threaten Public Safety

by Andrew Dalton on October 12, 2009

Here at Aggressive Panhandler, we occasionally have opinions about the issues around us. Which we were told in high school was a good thing, but really opinions are like farts: they all stink except yours (unless you’re in the shower, in which case – gross).
You may have noticed we’ve been pretty excited around here about [...]

Overly Aggressive: Craigslisting for bomb-making materials

by Andrew Dalton on October 12, 2009

This one didn’t make it into the Sunday CL round-up, but there’s free Garden Chemicals & Fertilizers at 1725 Fulton. I’ve seen Fight Club, I know what kind of chaos you can create with some household items. Is this some sort of terrorist plot? Are they using secret Craigslist codewords to rally their troops? Probably [...]

Big Flashy Traffic Sign Update

by Andrew Dalton on October 12, 2009

When I saw SFist picked up on our (read: NOPNA’s) fight against those freeway-style signs set to go up over Fell and Oak streets, I thought it was a good sign they would be taken down. Turns out Brock and company just wanted to take the opportunity to call the neighborhood “adorable”, which is a [...]

AggroPa Tonight! Drinks and Tarot and Books at The Page

by Andrew Dalton on October 12, 2009

Well, once again it looks like I’ve forgotten to do my homework. I totally forgot about the One City, One Book program designed to get San Franciscans talking about the same book instead of just making each other feel guilty for skipping over Malcolm Gladwell’s latest in favor of some straight-to-big-screen Dan Brown paperback they [...]

by Andrew Dalton on October 11, 2009

Free stuff!

Free ticket to Phoenix! (The southwestern state, not the French electro duo) You just have to call this guy in the neighborhood by tonight, and you could be spending the next three days in Arizona.
Sweet vintage ski gear! Just think how cool you’ll look rocking some rad retro gear in Tahoe this season.

Friday Digest: Which came first, the restaurant or the neighborhood?

by Andrew Dalton on October 2, 2009

The other day the ever-skeptical Eve at SFAppeal questioned a thin and unattributed article at SFGate about which restaurants “capture the spirit” of their neighborhoods. I guess the people at The Chron/SFGate still have money to eat out despite all those layoffs (cheap shot!) And sure enough the anonymous Chronicle writer(s?) only included a couple [...]

by Andrew Dalton on October 2, 2009

Sure, you’re bike gets “53 miles per burrito” or whatever your clever t-shirt says, but how about you make a real difference with that burrito money? SFoodie at SF Weekly let us know that next Friday, October 9 Papalote on Fulton will be donating 30% of sales to help support the victims of Tropical Storm [...]
