Dial B For Beretta

As someone without a tap-tap-tap smartphone, I often use GOOG-411 to dial up local establishments while away from the www.   Boop beep bamp bompbomp… I’ll connect you!

This past weekend, unfortch, attempts at reaching Beretta (Valencia at 23rd) were all sorts of messed.

Voice search pronunciations carried out included: brrrr-eh-tah, bee-reh-duh, beh-re-TA!, and so forth.  Attempts were made by three parties of mixed age, gender, and socioeconomic status.  No dice!

Goog did, however, pull up the following results:

  • Goodwill (wha?)
  • Baraka (almost!)
  • Piranha (eh.)
  • Ghirardelli Square (pronounced: grrr-ARRGHHH… delisquare)

Sure, okay, I’ll dine at Goodwill.

READERS: Try this one at home! If you figure out the correct way to pronounce “Beretta” for GOOG-411ing purposes, make me a reservation. The caponatina with burrata (#56 on the 7×7 list) makes eggplant relevant again (sorry, eggplant).

    I have the solution- Google text! Text “(business name), sf, ca” to 466453. I usually get a response in fewer than ten seconds.

    Firstly, WTF is that? If you talk like that I’m sorry, if you just write like this to be cool, sorry, lame.

    On topic, post wise, Person uses Google about place in mission + padding == story? It’s as bad as link baiting.

    Quality please.

    Say the city and state, then say the category “restaurant.” Give the cross street of Valencia and 23rd. Beretta is the first choice.

    Or just show up, put your name in, go get a drink at, oh, I don’t know Latin American or Lone Palm and wait for them to call you.

    Works every time. Swear.

    I had the exact same problem. Try asking Goog411 for the phone # for Frjtz, not an easy task.

    Beretta only takes reservations for 6 or more. You can also dial 911, they love to help, make sure to tell them how important it is for you to make a reservation at a place that doesn’t take them.

    has missionmission declined? OMG read this post. Where have all the blogs gone, long time passing
