This in from SF Gate:

San Francisco locations of Chevy’s might be dropping like flies over the last several years (for these keeping track, we’re down to one remaining, same as Olive Garden), but the City by the Bay is getting its first Applebee’s.

According to liquor licenses applications, the chain restaurant that bills itself as a “taste of the neighborhood” is plotting its first San Francisco location. It’s slated to be found on Fisherman’s Wharf, unsurprisingly, where it should fit in nicely with its new neighbors like the Rainforest Cafe and Bubba Gump’s; the official address is 2770 Taylor Street, which is just off Jefferson.

So yes, an Applebees plans on opening in the most touristy area of San Francisco.  I suppose that suits the company well considering it can't open restaurants up in just about any other area of the city.

Ahhh but that won't matter to the tourists.  They'll just go ahead and eat away and be completely oblivious to the following:

Yes, 2770 Taylor Street may be near Pier 39 and in a perfect location that's a magnet for tourism but that doesn't mean we can't go in and show our "We Love Obamacare" signs, right?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
