Will You Be My MONSTER JAM Valentine, Gentle Reader? Monster Trucks Hit the Oakland Coliseum Feb 18thThursday, February 9th, 2017
SATURDAY SATURDAY SATURDAY, Feb 18th, 2017 at Oakland Coliseum.
I’ve never been to a monster truck anything, but this event just might make my bucket list, who knows…
Valentines on sale now, Fulton Street Lucky, West of NoPA:
SHUTTERED: Former Fresh & Easy Parking Lot on Clement Way Out in the Richmond, Where Parking is Hard EnoughThursday, February 9th, 2017
This was the plan, but things didn’t work out.
So now, since the CVS is super not busy, this lot upstairs got closed.
What can this space be used for?
Our Golden Gate Park Panhandle bike path / muilti use trail used to be narrower, but more ppl started riding bikes so it was widened. Now that it’s getting overtaxed again, why not widen it again?
Of course joggers might like to jog on the softer ground next to an even wider parh, but six feet per lane doesn’t seem wide enough to me.
This is part of the latest effort. I guess you can mark PRO-SF down as anti.
Requiring peds to be on the lookout for bike riders even though the peds have the green would seem to be going a bridge too far.
I’m calling this proposal extra wacky, akin to trying to get residents on nearby Page to vote in absurd traffic signals back in the aughts. The SFMTA lost on that one, badly, and it will lose on this one as well, if the SFMTA pushes for it, which I don’t know that it will.
Anyway, that’s the update.
Oh, here’s one approach – just dawdle on up Fell at about 12 MPH, or about as fast as you can pedal uphill without your hands on the steering wheel. This is called “taking the lane,” by some:
Kate Spade and Prada, I know those names, plus they had some other expensive brands like Michael-something and Michael-something else.
I don’t think any of these luxury manufacturers exactly want this, but there you go, it’s retail’s bad boy we’re talking about here.
What they’ll say is oh, that might be counterfeit. But it’s not. Then they’ll go on to say, well, Costco isn’t an authorized reseller or whatever and well, no shit Prada. Tell us something we don’t know. It’s just like with the Crocs.
On It Goes…
Do These Simple Newspaper Boxes Look “Ugly” to You? Well, the Expensive “News Rack Program” to Replace Them is UglierWednesday, January 25th, 2017
Here you go, this is how some Frisco area news racks look in 2017, just like everywhere else really.
But thousands of others got removed by SFGov under the expensive “News Rack Program” what kicked off in 2002. Get the deets on that from Hoodline.
