Speaking at the Ferry Building yesterday, Mayor Gavin Newsom urged San Francisco restaurants to stop hawking bottled water in favor of serving local tap water, though he admitted that such a move wouldn't be financially feasible for a few smaller, poor restaurants. Y'know, like the PlumpJack restaurants, with investors like Gordon Getty: "But his new request that restaurants make the switch is just that - a request. 'Not every restaurant is going to be able to afford to do this,' Newsom said, noting that restaurants make a significant profit on bottled water sales and conceding that even some of the restaurants he once owned still offer the bottled variety to customers."
