Amazing that the Fox has reopened. Ten years ago, I worked across the street from it, and looking out the window you could see that the theater and all the storefronts around it were abandoned – except for one store whose business was fixing broken pool cues.
That is a very unusual business, and I finally realized that there is only one way it could have survived: it must have been common for people to get in fights in pool halls and to bash each other over the head with their cues – which helped them win the fight but also broke the cue, creating business for this store
“Given the ton of bikes, it is such a travesty that between 8th St. and the Embarcadero it is a total traffic free-for-all with essentially no bike infrastructure at all (green sharrows notwithstanding).”
