Honestly, if you want to buy G-Star just go to Hub.


G Star is being opened by the same owners of HUB so I assume HUB will no longer carry G Star. I have bought a few things there but their selection was kind of limited, or a least pretty conservative. I hope their G Star store will carry the same things you find in their San Francisco store, I cold have walked in there blind folded and walked out with something I'd like. :)

FYI this afternoon at 4:30 at the Irish Cultural Center there will be a 'visioning' meeting regarding Hance Park. Come on by and watch me become apoplectic about the City's lack of vision.

congratulations. Hopefully you didn't buy anything in Landmark, but welcome to the neighborhood either way.

^Nice but can you put something North of the Sheraton to obscure that monstrosity?

I feel so bad for anyone who lives in 215 E McKinley who's entire southern view is dominated by the towering tan tombstone.

I found a stray cat and 2 of its kittens under my house last night. Does anyone know anyone that may want a new kitten? One is white with caramel colors, the other is Black with gray stripes.

I can't believe this cat discovered a tiny hole leading to my crawl space, especially since I have run him off my yard before and my dogs hate cats.

If you look to the north of the Sheraton, nothing will be built there in our lifetimes.

One could only hope that the Sheraton will someday get a make-over in 20-30 years. Probably unlikely though. It'll be one of those structures that people say, "what were they thinking" once the newness wears off.

We we're saying "what were they thinking" as soon as we saw the renderings for the thing.

I did a little "Staycation" this weekend at the Hotel San Carlos. I realized at one point if I wanted to use an ATM I had to walk from the San Carlos all the way to the BofA tower (if I wanted a BofA ATM that is). Thats ridiculous. With all the blank walls in some of the shittier designed buildings downtown, there really ought to be a lot more ATMs. It would help turn the blank walls into something slightly more permeable.

Vicelord John Oct 11, 2010 9:54 PM

You were really that worried about the $2 that you walked almost 1/2 mile? Who doesn't take debit now anyway?

Hmm... staying downtown on a "staycation" with a need of cash in the middle of the night. One word.... HOOKER

Congratulations on missing the point entirely.

I had to go over by the BofA tower anyhow to make copies at FedEx Kinkos, so it was on my route. Either way, we need more fucking ATMs downtown like most big downtowns have.

Who said I got it in the middle of the night? It was in the middle of the day. Furthermore, whats wrong with staying downtown on such an excursion?

no, you're missing the point, Mr. Defensive.

Who the hell uses cash anymore? Unless you're buying drugs, street food, hookers, strippers, or used goods off of craigslist, it's obsolete. That's why there aren't more ATM's... it's very '90's.

And who said you can only buy hookers in the night? For a comedian, you sure don't ever seem to have much of a sense of humor.

Heh...my photo got published on the front cover of a magazine, kind of cool. :)
