Bad time for tourism

There are signs all over Pier 39 down at Fisherman's Wharf on how, with the lovely and mild climate of the Embarcadero, the person who developed Pier 39 as a tourist trap attraction refused to allow A/C or heating systems to be installed, and it has saved them EVER so much money over the years.

It's about 40 degrees out there, tourists are about as rare as flamingos in Fargo, and the poor sods who are working are probably cursing him with venom and vigor. I bet the only places on the Wharf doing any business are the coffee stands, and the place that sells heavy sweatshirts.

Do you actually know the developer refused, or do you just infer as much from the otherwise inexplicable lack?

Like I said, big signs all over the Pier about what a smart move it was.

My girlfriend of five years is one of the people working there. So yes. She's lucky enough to work mostly indoors, though.

And you think he didn't know what he was doing when he named it "Pier 39"?

Poor choices are everywhere...
