Are these scallions or green onions?
at 15 Marina Blvd., an infamous pick up spot for at least three decades,
opened in June, 1959. Its reputation is well documented in magazines, travel
guides, and other media. In Tales of the
City, a creep tries to pick up Maryann with the line, "Are these scallions
or green onions?" Mister SF knows a guy who picked up a woman in the dairy
isle here using, "Do you have time for coffee with a guy who makes crème
brûlée?" If you can't score here, you can always go home and
drown your sorrows in Häagen-Dazs. The mosaic
mural on the building's east side depicts food sources and distribution
from around the world and was created by San Francisco artist John Garth.
