Royal Cuckoo Market’s big Planning Commission hearing is this Thursday


Here’s the deal, from an message to their mailing list earlier this week:

Dear friends and neighbors of The Royal cuckoo Market,

Will you join us on Thursday, Sept. 7th?

The Planning Commissioners on Thursday, September 7th, will decide if we can serve food or not.  The Hearing is public, and the outcome is based greatly on community support so we implore anyone interested and available to join us at City Hall to show that they would like this business to continue to operate as it has been by granting this permit.


September 7th Thursday

City Hall, Commission Chambers- Room 400

1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place

San Francisco (enter main civic center side of city hall not the Van Ness side and take elevator up to the 4th floor)

AGENDA: starts at 1:00 sharp but there are several items on the agenda.  The order of items will be posted on the SF planning department site before the hearing but the exact time of our item is not available.

Full text of the email after the jump:


No more momentarily mistaking this place for a burger joint

FullSizeRender 12 copy 2

Remember, corner of 20th and York, across from Jay ‘n’ Bee, used to be a salon called L’Burget I think? With a big “L’Burget” on the sign? And so every time you’d go past it, even after the like 1000th time, you’d still momentarily think maybe it was a burger joint? Remember?

(Now the only danger with the new sign is you might momentarily think it’s Lil Tuffy’s house.)

RIP Coco Frio, longtime neighborhood institution


(Not.) (And also, Pizza Joint & Grill and the Fizzary.)

UPDATE: Marisa says, “saw a sign up that said it was being turned into some kind of pinball hall/game room …”

UPDATE: Sorry, didn’t mean to be all flippant.

Local nightclub and gambling den gets cool new signage


Looks pretty fun!

Capp Street Crap has the story:

Taylor Peck, the owner of the former Fizzary soda shop, told Capp Street Crap that he spray painted the messages on the front of the building yesterday in hopes of forcing authorities to do more about a dangerous new problem going on inside.

“I’m in a really frustrating situation and this was a last ditch effort to get some assistance/attention,” he wrote in an email.

According to Peck, after blowing fuses in the building, the people who have been subleasing from him and operating an alleged gambling den, have started using a gasoline generator inside an upstairs office of the building for power. A gasoline generator used inside would be a carbon monoxide threat.

Who says the Mission is no fun anymore???

What’s up with that new Gus’s Community Market at 17th and Harrison?


Capp Street Crap was there for opening day:

Stopped by Gus’s Community Market for its official opening today and it was awesome. The sister store of Haight Street Market and Noriega Produce located at 17th and Harrison streets, Gus’s is large and bright with a great selection of meat, cheese and produce. The dessert selection was also pretty impressive.
