It’s not exactly our usual fare, but for a bit a early week levity by way of a plugged-in tipster and San Francisco’s Planning Commission Agenda for tomorrow:
565 CASTRO STREET – on the east side of Castro Street between 18th and 19th Streets; Lot 062 in Assessor’s Block 3583 – Request for a Conditional Use Authorization, pursuant to Planning Code Sections 303, 715.54, and 790.60, to allow a massage establishment (dba Hand Job) to operate within the Castro Neighborhood Commercial District and 40-X Height and Bulk District.
Preliminary Recommendation: Approval with Conditions
Our tipster’s off handed (ba-dump-bump) comment: “…I hope one of the conditions is reconsideration of the name.”
To bring the story full circle (which is why the tip made our cut), it was two years ago we broke the news that First American Title which had occupied the space was closing down due to “market conditions” at the time.
UPDATE: The reader’s comment we wish we would have thought of first: “I hope the tipster will let us know if this story has a happy ending.”
