Big Changes to St. Luke’s


uHooders. Get ready for the pile drivers…a new St. Luke’s is coming
to an unsightly parking lot near you. If approved in September,
construction begins in 2011.  Here’s an excerpt of what we can expect:

Construction of the proposed St. Luke’s Replacement Hospital would begin in 2011 and continue for approximately 4 years. The approximate duration of key construction phases is expected to be as follows, with some overlap occurring between certain phases:

► utilities realignment, 8 months;
► excavation, 3 months;
► foundation work, 8 months;
► structure and exterior work, 20 months;
► interior work, 18 months; and
► demolition of the existing hospital tower, 5 months.

Thank god we’re renting our new place. It just became a lot less
appealing for the next seven years.

Wild Pepper “Grand Opening”

Oh Wild Pepper – we in the uHood are not fooled by your "Grand Opening" banner nor by your three new plants outside.  We know you are the same crappy Wild Pepper we never ate at before.  At least have some creativity in your re-launching efforts like the restaurant formerly known as Toad's!  


So Excited for Today, 21 July 2010!

Hey gang, today is an exciting day.  Guess which restaurant is scheduled to open?  That’s right, GRUB!  

Here’s the post on Table Hopper from last month:

Come to think of it, maybe I should shelve my excitement.  There’s NO GODDAM WAY that place is opening today. Or any day.  EVER!

Our own farmer’s market


uHooders – No need to trek up the hill to Noe anymore.  No need to brave the crowds at the Ferry Building.  We now have our very own (nearly uHood) Mission farmer's market.  Every Thursday from 4 – 8 pm on Bartlett between 21st and 22nd.  And looks like it will be Mission style with music, food, and mural painting (what else do you need while you shop for vegetables?).   For more information:

Arizmendi Keeps Threatening

Arizmendi keeps threatening to do something with their 24th @ Valencia location.  I checked their website today and it indicates that they expect to open their Mission location fall/winter 2010.  That’s total weak sauce of the first order.  They need to get baking now!  Now, I tell you!  NOW!

Since Arizmendi ain’t doin’ shit, what do you uHooders think about a pizza night over at Pethompson?  It’s been a while.
