Stop the gravy train!!!
Cool. It's always interesting to hear what these places were in the past.
Now I'm hungry for Indian food.
I think I ate here before they closed.. I haven't been back to the Tenderloin in so long, I had no idea this was already gone. I believe they're still at their other locations.. it's a pretty good and (relatively) cheap small chain.
I don't recall seeing any poop anywhere, but wouldn't be totally surprised if I did.
Yeah, it's actually a really beautiful area of the city. I could totally see it getting gentrified, but I bet its reputation is strong enough to keep that from happening so quickly.
Any human excrement? That's when you _really_ know you're in the Tenderloin.
Nice area apart from that, stayed there once myself :)
This would make a good bumper sticker if it weren't so long.
Hey, I've just found something to paint on the side of the van if I ever get sufficiently sick of "LIVRAISON - Eau de Source"
I've always liked the signage in SF. I'm glad I'm not the only one!
That place is the most fun since the Bates Hotel.
great shot Vic! The tree is a white pine (tree nerds need that level of detail- about trees anyway) and the spiral is just a spiral and calling it a "candy cannon" sounds a lot nicer than "stripper pole" which is apparently what it is. thanks for the shots!
Great story and funny ending about the startup. :) But sad to hear about your stolen bike.
I didn't get a chance to use the Caltrain bike cars, and didn't touch a bike the whole time I was in California, but I managed to pop into one of the bike cars when I got off the train in SF. Judging by the number of cyclists getting off the train and around the station, it was very well-used.
Caltrain has nice bicycle cars, but I had my bike stolen from them once while commuting to Sunnyvale. It was in Palo Alto, so I blame some no-good Stanford student. Presumably the proceeds from selling my bike went to fund a start-up.
Cool, I also recently visited Toronto and reviewed the bike lanes there, with a view to their applicability in Ottawa: http://centretown.blogspot.com/2010/10/montreal-part-2-bike-lanes-segreg...
(My post on the Bixi system will be later in the series).
they are really remarkable. It's too bad they're in Mississauga. As for your desire to see the view from the top, I suspect the best view from up there would be looking straight down, watching the curves pull away and back as the tower descends.
Haha...We know there's only one in there, but don't know if it's a boy or girl yet.
AWESOME!!!!! good luck with the TWINS
Good to hear from you. Yes, Jen has changed a bit.....mainly her belly has grown nice and large. Will pop in early December :)
now that is cool to catch the flame like tha t
WOW it would have been cool to get up close to those trains like that ,,,,, uhmmm Jen hase changed since the last time I saw her??
Looks like biking makes you happy! Share this with others by eating chocolate in order to build bicycles...
The Bicycle Factory is giving Canadians the opportunity to help send up to 5,000 bikes to Ghana – by eating chocolate! Participants also have a chance to win a trip to Ghana to help deliver the bikes. Details are online now at http://thebicyclefactory.ca
Thanks for your help!
i HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR INSTRUCTIONS LIKE THIS FOR MONTHS! THANK YOU!
Long time-ago, is three or 4 bottle of Zubr that it go bad. We know it go bad -- is there long time and is funy taste. But I drinked all anyway and when I sitted -- is image like this one that I see! Not make a recommend for that!
Lovely and yet mysterious.
I asked this question of Torontoist and here's their reply: http://torontoist.com/2010/07/ask_torontoist_blansdowne_fence_makeover.php
The artists are Scott Eunson and Marianne Lovink. Very cool!
I'm not sure who the artist is, and I don't know the whole story behind it. When I took this photo, there were just a couple of silhouettes up, but now obviously alot more. I need to take more pics :)
I bet someone in the DIGIN crowd knows. I should ask them. I know it's come up in conversation before, but I can't remember the details. Certainly Giambrone's office would know too.
