San Francisco City Attorney Herrera is threatening to sue McDonald's Corporation for failing to clean up drugs and "other public nuisances" at the franchise's restaurant at 730 Stanyan Street near Golden Gate Park.

In a pre-litigation demand letter sent to McDonald's CEO Steve Easterbrook, Herrera states that the restaurant and its grounds have become a site of serious drug trafficking:
In the last six months the police have recovered more than 100 doses of LSD, over two pounds of marijuana, 88.5 grams of psilocybin (psychedelic mushrooms), more than half of a pound of marijuana edibles, and hashish from drug dealers selling their products on your Property. 
Other problematic conditions at the location—which Herrera attributes to the presence of "drug activity"—include fights, assaults, public consumption of alcohol, two dog attacks, and car thefts. Since the beginning of 2012, there have been almost 1100 calls for service to SFPD regarding the McDonald's.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
