Hot Dogma

A Zen master visiting New York City goes up to a hot dog vendor and says, "Make me one with everything." The hot dog vendor fixes a hot dog and hands it to the Zen master, who pays with a $20 bill. The vendor puts the bill in the cash box and closes it. "Excuse me, but where’s my change?" asks the Zen master. The vendor responds, "Change must come from within."

145 Prime Acres for Sale Above San Pedro Valley Park

Riptide reader Kevin M. reports: "Private land for sale (145 acres, $7.5 million) in the back of Linda Mar above San Pedro Valley Park. On since early August. Hopefully some open-space group will buy this so we won’t have to look up Linda Mar Boulevard and see monster homes looming over the back of the valley."

Surf Spot Restaurant for Sale or Lease

Surf Spot restaurant on Sea Bowl Lane closed August 27. It is now up for sale or lease. Facebook page said: "To receive a refund on any unused Surf Spot gift cards, please send the card with your mailing address to 4625 Coast Highway, Pacifica, CA 94044." Impressed that Surf Spot is honoring unused gift certificates. That's good, ethical business practice by the local owners. We hope they pay off their vendor bills the same way, so nobody gets stiffed.
