Protesters vandalize Google bus, block Apple shuttle

In San Francisco’s Mission District, the epicenter of the housing crisis, protesters surrounded a bus full of Apple workers at about 9 a.m. and held it up for about 30 minutes, according to local news reports and witnesses. Demonstrators chanted and carried banners reading “Eviction Free San Francisco” and “Get Off The Bus.” Some urged Apple workers to join them; one did.

Never leave the uHood – have it delivered!

So the options for deliveries to the uHood continue to increase.  I can personally attest to the beauty of Google Shopping Express and the free six month beta.  Free delivery from Target, Walgreens, Lucky, and Nob Hill Foods is pretty sweet.  They have also added Whole Foods, REI, Costco, Blue Bottle, and many more stores.  But they don’t deliver fresh food.  Enter Amazon Fresh!  Which delivers to my house (I confirmed my address) so I assume it will deliver to yours. Besides just groceries – Amazon Fresh seems to have some really awesome local vendors and semi-prepared foods like Delica Japanese, Homeroom Mac & Cheese, and ever raw Rosamunde Sausages!  Check out the initial vendors here:  https://fresh.amazon.com/Category?cat=spotlight&appendmp=true&pf_rd_s=center-4&pf_rd_p=1687837342&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=21&pf_rd_r=1TT2WGYC4AQFTFBF0ZHR

They have to have unobstructed access to your front door to deliver.  I am certainly going to give it a try.  Free delivery for orders over $35 but they seem to be pushing people to sign-up for the free Amazon Fresh Prime trail (30 days free but if you don’t canx $299 for the year).

The Eater article also mentions lots of other delivery options:  http://sf.eater.com/archives/2013/12/11/amazonfresh_grocery_delivery_has_arrived_in_the_bay.php

Really why ever leave the uHood?

Review of Clooney’s

So 7×7 had a hysterical review of drinking at Clooney’s.  You can read the whole thing here:  http://www.7×7.com/music-nightlife/weeknighter-clooneys but my favorite quote, “Local drunks and weirdos sat around the horseshoe-shaped bar staring at the TV . ..”.  So true, so true!
