Whoops, You Probably Missed a Sweet Deal at Little Star

by Andrew Dalton on August 23, 2010

Friend and sometimes panhandler, Broke-Ass Stuart launched his new deals site: Broke Bucks today and his inaugural deal is (was) half-off at Little Star on Divis (suck it, Valencia Little Star patrons!) the only downside is that you probably missed the deal because you’re slow and all 200 of the $12 coupons sold out in [...]

New Haircut Store at 537 Divis [UPDATE: It's Called Population]

by Andrew Dalton on August 23, 2010

Now that the miserable June/July/August deathgloom seems to have subsided, we’ve been spotting some changes in the business along Divisadero. The most drastic change is probably the slick new salon at 537 Divis where the Divisadero Community Gallery used to be located. (Speaking of which, what happened to that place?) There’s no signage up yet [...]

Mojo Wants You To Drink on Divisadero, Bay to Breakers Doesn’t

by Andrew Dalton on August 3, 2010

The June/July gloom has been keeping us down a little bit here at Aggressive Panhandler HQ (a tent in the panhandle, you’ll recall), but August has so far turned out pretty sunny, so naturally we’re thinking about the best places to drink beers outside. Aforementioned malaise has kept us from following any recent Bay to [...]

Emergency Public Service Announcement! Sidewalk Sale at Steiner and McAllister

by Andrew Dalton on July 31, 2010

The Internet sure moves fast! So fast that I almost forgot we had promised to fulfill on our neighbor Roseanne’s heartwarming request to publicize her Sidewalk Sale over on Steiner and McAllister. I guess it’s just as well because it starts in exactly 10 minutes (9:30am!) and she is very adamant about NO EARLY BIRDS.
Roseanne [...]

Golden Gate Park Getting a Waffle Truck

by Andrew Dalton on June 23, 2010

EaterSF reports that Waffle Mania Waffle Truck-turned-Kiosk has been approved to set up another location in Golden Gate Park. Caroburger over at Eater is a little thin on the details, but apparently they’re going to operate out of a truck set up “near the museums”. So, at JFK Drive and Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive, then?

Fell & Divis Arco Owner Kind-of Assaulted BP Protester Maybe.

by Andrew Dalton on June 21, 2010

So it turns out the Arco/BP Shutdown party wasn’t just a one time thing and the Facebook Revolutionaries behind the protest are doing this weekly now (who knew?).  More importantly though, last Friday’s protest not only angered a lot of drivers, but it apparently pissed off Arco Station owner Larry Armstrong who, according to facebook [...]

New Sidewalk Cafe at Fell & Divis

by Andrew Dalton on June 18, 2010

I’ve noticed this dirt-cheap hot dog offer in the past (which may or may not be related to the hot dog cart guy that hangs out in front of the Independent), but now they’ve got a table and chairs out in front of the convenience store at the 76 Station. Because if there’s one thing [...]

Protest a Bunch of Stuff and Make a Park at the Fell/Divis Arco

by Andrew Dalton on June 10, 2010

At this point we all really hate British Petroleum, right? And in the neighborhood, I think most of us agree that we already hated the Arco at Fell and Divis because that fucking place was really a pain in the ass to pull into and then you had to pay in cash at that stupid [...]
