Hot Spot/2Lips Watch: The wooden boards have come down. Hopefully they’re reopening soon. I had a nightmare last night that I visited them after re-opening and it had turned into a retro diner. Market between Van Ness and Polk.

I’ve been neglecting to post this Kahn & Keville sign that I’m sure most of you have seen by now. Don’t worry, K&K, all of the character in this city will be gone soon enough.

In other neighborhood-related arts news, I’ve reached out to the documentarian of the Tenderloin film that premiered in the TL library. He says he’s working on getting more screenings hopefully both here in SF and in Oakland. I’ll keep you posted.

Update (3/25/2014): Confirmed. It is Luisa Hanson of John Barleycorn destruction fame. 

And so it is. All last remnants of The Front Room are history. Their relocated place sandwiched between Encore and the old Lumiere theater (which looks to open soon as the posh and expensive clothing store, Marine Layer) is now to be Luisa Pizza and Pasta. Uh oh. Is it that Luisa? *shudder* California between Polk and Larkin.

De Afghanan Kebab opened at the beginning of February, but I missed reporting it. Good luck to them at that poisonous location. Geary, between Polk and Van Ness.

A documentary about the TL will be screening Tuesday, March 25th, at 5:45pm at the public library in the Tenderloin. A film by Henri Quenette, Love Me Tenderloin follows a day in the life of 4 Tenderloin residents who have had a hard life and apparently isn’t a hit piece on the ‘hood, like the meth zombies National Geographic decided to create. The screening is free.

You have 7 more days March 28th) to request membership into the advisory committee for the Van Ness bus rapid transit project. Your input might help get us up and down Van Ness faster than the slow slog we have today. Fight businesses who will claim this will destroy them! Fight seniors who will claim this will send them to an early grave!

But in all seriousness, this will be the city’s first try at BRT, which is picking up steam in other cities, and will no doubt either shape or ship out the SFMTA’s next planned BRT, the 38 Geary - that rush hour-packed hell line. Both corridors could desperately use more efficient lines.

Not Tender, but Tender-adjacent and I’ve always enjoyed photographing this old church. The end is near for the church on Larkin, at the corner of Clay. A fence has gone up and I checked the public records. A historical demolition was approved at the end of February. Condos are going up. Condos you surely cannot afford.

This condo project was battled for years by all sorts of groups. They’ve all been paid off or given up. Developer wins. A 6-story, 29-unit building will be erected.

I missed this meeting, but apparently there are some new condos/apartments planned for 1525 Pine… which is Grubstake’s address. I’m hoping it’s not Grubstake, but the burned out/boarded up building next door. But don’t be surprised if another neighborhood institution is about to die. Just part of the New San Francisco. Pine between Polk and Van Ness.
