You know that dumpster with trees growing out of it by the Chronicle building on 5th St? Turns out it’s actually supposed to be a mobile parklet. Seems like a dumpster filled with a garden is kind of a lazy man’s parklet. But then look at the sponsors: our local garbage hauling provider, Recology, is behind this. It all makes sense now, doesn’t it?

Stopped by the Metreon lately? (No? Of course not.)
Currently it’s being torn up, and almost everything is closed. The only two remaining establishments are the theater and the Japanese restaurant. Everything else is either gone or being rebuilt. Even Jillians is closed for renovation, despite signs everywhere claiming the opposite.
The only two enterances now face 4th St. and Yerba Buena Gardens, with a temporary theater ticketing area on the ground floor. Everything else is walled off, with warning signs about hard hats.
Here’s to hoping the Metreon’s new Target store means fewer trips for us city folk down to the “twin Targets” of Colma and Daly City.
