My Week in Points July 29-August 4: Mr. Pickles Sandwich Shop is cash only

Check out our Top Rewards Cards to boost your points earning and travel more!

Family, friends, work (of the travel sort) intervened and I did not do a darn thing miles and points-wise this past week other than to earn some the old-fashioned way, by travel.

So instead, a little inside moment for the miles and points set from my San Francisco business trip. Rolling south through the Mission District after my GQ-inspired ice cream binge, my sluggish head swiveled at the sight of Mr Pickles Sandwich Shop.


The store lacks the proper leading definite article* and avian mascot of The Mr. Pickles, does not even accept credit cards or participate in dining rewards programs, and I was too stuffed to sample if the culinary tribute is worthy of the namesake. Much improvement needed to be an apropos homage.

(*Yes, I had to look up the part of speech for “the.”)

It seems more like it should be called Senior Pickles to cause less confusion with The Mr Pickles. I’m just sayin’…its seems too easy a mistake to make.
