Shenanigans: Money where our mouths are

Instead of spending money on signatures, buy us dinner

By Dave Maass
shenanigans
The committee behind the “Comprehensive Pension Reform” ballot measure (now known as Prop B) spent nearly $1.16 million to collect 94,246 valid signatures. If you’re going to spend $12.28 per signature, how about instead of hounding us outside the grocery store, next take all of us out for one of the following, equivalently priced dinners.

1. A double cheeseburger with a craft beer at Hodad’s (Ocean Beach)

2. Phở Filet Mignon with a Vietnamese coffee at Phở Fifth Ave. (Hillcrest)

3. Kilimanjaro beef skewer, with dengu, ugali and two cream-cheese-coconut-pineapple sambusas at Flavors of East Africa.(University Heights). 

4. Twelve-piece gizzard combo with cornbread, fries, side of collared greens and grape Kool Aid at Annie Belle's Famous Wings & Greens (Emerald Hills)

5. Three pupusas, fried plantains and a horchata at El Salvadoreno (Grant Hill)
