This sign was posted on a lamppost on the corner of Larkin and California Street across from Olea restaurant a couple of days ago. It's also nice to see low-tech signs still happen, even among the techies and nouveau riche of my neighborhood.

The recently-closed Gypsy Rosalie’s has re-opened at 1222 Sutter, and
a mere two weeks after H & T Nail Spa closed at 1545 Polk, Mani-Pedi Spa has opened at the same location. Not only have they kept word ‘spa’ for continuity, both ‘Mani-Pedi’ and 'H&T Nails' have almost the same amount of letters, which no doubt will come in handy when updating the old sign.

In the last week or so I read more than one writer in the local press claim that the current sea-change San Francisco is undergoing is nothing new, that newcomers have always been arriving, and this is just a new generation coming in.
That’s not quite true. While there's always been a new generation coming into the City every 20 years or so, the current influx shift is more than generational – it’s a whole new economic strata or class.
The following quote illustrates what I mean by that:
“Some of the wealthy young people are literally coming down [to buy a cordo or apartment] with bags of cash, and whatever the offer price is, they’re offering $200,000 over – in cash.’

is showing up with a silver attaché case neatly stacked with rows of benjamins.
This is no longer a city you move to. This is a city you buy in to.
But that’s the way it is in San Francisco 2015, our Monaco-by-the-Bay, the City of the Future!
