Not seeing the issue here.

Grease smoke, even lightly greased smoke, gets kinda nasty after a while.  And by a while I mean that if your house is next to an unfiltered stove cooking nothing but bacon, within a week running your finger over the wall will drag off about an eighth of an inch of cold, unsalted lard.

And it sounds like the owner's response was basically "yeah, I can see that, as soon as a get a work permit I'll fix it."  Pretty reasonable interaction, yeah?

Nobody is being unreasonable here...

'You should install a smoke filter to reduce the smell...' 'Okay, I'll install one if my permits are renewed'

Actual BLT sandwich at Tony's Restaurant in Frankenmuth, Michigan. Somewhere under that pound of bacon there's lettuce and tomato.


I love bacon as much as anyone else, but how the fark does someone eat that?  The point of bacon is that is a supernova of salty, meaty flavor in a small package.  Taken in moderation, bacon makes things better.  Just eating a pound of bacon is like drinking a gallon of pure, fresh-squeezed, unsweetened lemon juice.

I love farking, but I don't want a whorehouse moving in next door.

I love bacon, but I don't want that placing moving next door.

And yeah, I'm betting the restaurant came second: Bacon Bacon set up shop in its current location last summer.

Anyway, the complainer just wants the restaurant to put a filtration system on the air vents. That seems pretty reasonable.

Yep. It must have been a slow news day because neither party seems especially angry or put out over everything. The resident (who was probably there first and doesn't want to have to move just because of a restaurant) doesn't like the scent of bacon that accumulates over time. (Which isn't nearly as nice of a smell as you'd think, believe it or not.) The owner says "fair enough, I'll apply for a permit and put in a filter" because odds are he knows how bad the smell can get as well and wants to accommodate the other person. It's not like the guy is asking the guy to leave and close the restaurant.

I worked in a restaurant that specialized in Southern cooking, which meant that bacon and pork products in general were heavily used. When you have tons and tons of grease cooked on a weekly basis, that stuff can smell pretty rank sometimes. Especially in the summer. I love bacon, but even with regularly cleaning we couldn't quite get rid of the smell of coagulated grease or keep up with how quickly that stuff can build up everywhere. Even when the smell wasn't awful, it can get pretty old smelling nothing but bacon everywhere and we had some employees that stopped eating pork products while they were working there. Crazy talk, I know, but you really don't understand how bad the smell can get until you've worked in a place that cooks a large amount of pork products.

Vampires like bacon?


FriarReb98: I'd say "find the neighborhood vegetarian/vegan," but it's San Francisco.  Whomever the douchenozzle is needs to not live next to a restaurant.


It's Haight-Ashbury. My guess is aging hippie vegetarian.

No surprise this is in Haight Ashbury.  That's like vegan hipster central of San Francisco.  Half the people who live there only do because they like to say, "I live in the Haight", which is worth something like 25 hipster points.  They can barely afford the rent and live on handouts to get by, but they live in the Haight.  The other half can't stand the hipsters, though.

The only thing that improves the smell of frying bacon is frying bacon with onions. Brewing coffee at the same time is my favorite combination of smells.

If the smell is that repugnant, I'd start shopping for another rental. This is people's livelihood in a struggling economy we are talking about.

L.D. Ablo: Are we talking American or Canadian bacon?


You dare speak of Canadian Bacon?

Do you also talk about Taco Bell menu items when the discussion turns to Mexican food?

revrendjim: I gave up bacon a few weeks ago because I have heart disease and it's really not on the heart-healthy list. Today I was in Albertsons and it was $2 off. The good brand, too. I snapped. Tomorrow morning I will make bacon, eggs, and hashbrowns. Then I will have a massive coronary and die with a smile on my face.


I tell myself that on the morning of 9/11, there was some person that elected to do without a special treat that morning.  Not only could it have saved their life by taking time out of their morning to sit and enjoy a snack, but dying because of it just ain't worth it.

Moderate and enjoy life.
