Outdoor Western Union

Next time you’re falling victim to a scam on Craigslist, you can transfer the earnings of your fraudlent check via Western Union without entering an enclosed space. Thanks to San Francisco’s love/hate relationship with the great outdoors, we now have a sidewalk kiosk for money transfers.

Spotted at Valencia and 16th.

Pica Pica applies for outdoor seating permit

Pica Pica Permit

Everyone’s favorite Pokemon themed Venezualen eatery, Pica Pica has applied for an outdoor seating permit. By eating outside their establishment, one could combine the intoxicating smells of a delicious arepa with the intoxicating smells of intoxicating substances.
