Stalker Much?

2011_01_shields.jpgIn a quest to take over a century old bar, a San Francisco restaurant owner opened a business in the neighboring building to keep his eyes on the prize. Then like a man trying to steal someone's girlfriend or get a recently deceased person's rent controlled apartment, he slowly acclimated himself to his desired building's owner, leading them to offer Leary a right of first refusal for the place. Even Gabe Stulman could learn a lesson from this guy. [NYT]
