The Creepy Guy By 24th & Mission BART

I’m really creeped out by a guy whom I see every morning standing in front of the coffee shop right next to the mexican pastry shop nextdoor to Pizza di Mano.  You know the guy; in his fifties, holds a cane, wears a checkered coat and looks kind of like he’s been around the proverbial block a few times.

Here’s what creeps me out about him: he’s there when I go to BART at 6:50am each day, standing at the corner cat-calling just about every woman who has the misfortune of entering his field of vision.  And he’s in the SAME SPOT when I return at night some 12 hours later.  What the fuck does this man do for a living?

I’ll do my best to get some furtive photographs.

uHood Restaurant Secrets


So I feel as though there are many tips, tricks, hints, and secrets about our favorite restaurants in the uHood that would be perfect to share on the microhood blog (fitting with the editorial policy).  Here are a few:

Rosamunde Sausage Grill delivers!  $10 minimum delivery, order on-line at   And another little known fact – they will sell sausages un-cooked so you can grill them at home ($2 – $2.50).  

Papalote has a frequent buyer punch card.  Buy 10 burritos and get one free (and they are very liberal with the punching system.  i.e. you can use the same card for a whole group order).  You can also buy the salsa by the pint to take home.

Beretta will let you call ahead and put your name in line up to 45 min before you arrive.  They also have a private dining room downstairs!

Blue Plate discount coupons are sometimes available at  This is usually paying less than $10 for a coupon good on $25 off a minimum purchase of $35.  If you sign up for the mailing list you will get almost weekly offers to buy the coupons that normally cost $10 for $2 – $3. also offers coupons for Good Frickin' Chicken, Bissap Baobob, Tokyo Go Go, Panchita's #3, and Destino.
