The man behind SF's Happy Meal ban enjoys fast-food tacos 

Two months after Supervisor Eric Mar's legislation banning happy meals from McDonald's and other fast food chains went into effect, the Richmond district representative admitted he likes fast food.

During Tuesday’s entertainment commission meeting, Mar addressed the commission on a request for a Jack in the Box on Geary Boulevard to operate extended hours between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m., Mar testified saying he enjoys the fast food chain’s tacos.

“I eat late night tacos at Jack in the Box,” he said. “I just admitted I eat fast food.”

The Jack in the Box operating hours decision was ultimately tabled for two weeks to allow Mar, the residents who do not want the restaurant open during that time and the business owners to meet.

Mar's legislation to ban toys went into effect on Dec. 1, 2011. In July 2011, McDonald's announced its own changes to the happy meal toys by charging 10 cents for kids to get the toy, with all proceeds going to the nonprofit Ronald McDonald House.
