Comes now Sam Singer, who gets paid to spread the Party Line about the historic Bay to Breakers Street Party and Fun Run coming up this Sunday:
“Bay to Breakers goes dry with new no-alcohol rules”
Now, wasn’t alcohol banned the year before and the year before and the year before? Yep.
So, the new rules aren’t new at all, are they?

Has anybody ever been arrested at a BtoB for alcohol possession? I don’t know, maybe some mouthy minors have. What I’ve seen myself is the SFPD taking away people’s alcohol or making them pour it out. Oh well.
Leave us not forget the “tipping points,” the years when things went too far in the opinion of the white, aging, home-owning, Prop 8-supporting millionaires and billionaires who get upset every year.
So, in 2008, 2007 was the “tipping point.”
In 2009, 2008 was the tipping point.
In 2010, 2009 was the tipping point.
And in 2011:
“Last year was the tipping point,” said David Perry, who was hired by the city to help publicize the new rules. “Last year was such a mess that organizers, the city and (police) decided we had to change something.”
And you know, for all the talk, there are years where nobody gets arrested at one of the biggest street parties left in the 415.
All right, here’s the new likka sto map from Exercising While Intoxicated:

Now the homeowner’s associations of the Western Addition are pressuring area stores to not open on Sunday morning, to not sell alcohol. The people at the stores where I’ve visited think that’s a laughable idea. (Anyway, I’ll check and see how effective our local Taliban’s anti-alcohol campaign is come Sunday.)
All right, get the latest updates here, at the People for the Preservation of Bay2Breakers.
See you Sunday!
