• The 100-year-old Roosevelt Tamale Parlor announced its permanent closure today, though a new Mexican cuisine tenant is already lined up. Ownership of the long-running Mission District restaurant has been under Aaron Presbrey and Barry Moore for the last 10 years (they closed briefly in 2016), who announced a permanent closure Tuesday. But City Hall records show that something called La Carreta Rotisserie has already signed a lease on the space. [Mission Local]
  • Dreamforce 2022 started Tuesday with an estimated 40,000 people attending, which is way up from the less than a thousand who attended in 2021, but way down from the normal 170,000 attendees. The big hits at the tech conference are a fake waterfall and a puppy area, people have spotted Lenny Kravitz, and Marc Benioff (Bunny-Off?) was seen sporting bunny ears because that apparently promotes some sort of Salesforce product.
