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.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.
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.
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?
