Jesse Mullan of the Dogpatch Howler has the deets of the remission of SFMTA’s parking-meters-solve-everything expansion. It appears Operation Barbarossa is bogging down this winter due to heavy assault from the Proles.
Per the crappy SFMTA’s Jay Primus:
“I am writing with a brief update on the parking management proposals for the Mission Bay, 12th & Folsom, and 17th & Folsom areas.
The SFMTA Board will no longer be taking action on the SFpark expansion areas at the February 7th Board meeting. Rather, we will conduct further outreach ahead of Board action.
The northernmost section of the Mission Bay Parking Management Proposal was already designated as an SFpark area and will be the only part of the proposal going forward.
For the SFpark expansion areas, including the Dogpatch and Potrero Hill neighborhoods and the 12th and Folsom and 17th and Folsom proposals, the SFMTA will conduct additional outreach and engage in further discussion with various stakeholders before any further action is considered.”
So, that’s their way of saying no parking meters for now.
Doesn’t the SFMTA know by now that it sucks? It’s hard to tell. Sometimes it seems that the SFMTA thinks it’s not dysfunctional. Isn’t that funny?
The 12th Annual How Weird Street Faire went off without a hitch today down in the SoMA.
(There’s little wonder about why the former Howard Street Festival is so popular, of course.)
This year’s theme was “Mythical Realms” a celebration of a pefect society where differences are appreciated as things of beauty.
Now, doesn’t this maypole remind you of your schoolgirl days at Bryn Mawr?

Hunky Darth Vader turned a few heads:
It was just as you would have imagined it:
And, good news! It seems white people no longer get Chinese character tattoos anymore – they’re into pink poodles and whatnot. See?
All right, that’s it for this year:
“I’m drunk and Osama Bin Laden is dead #howweird“
Lastly, leave us give thanks to all the NIMBY’s of the SoMA, for not complaining so much this go-around. Huzzah!
“If theres a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed now
Its just a spring clean for the May Queen”
See you next year!
Rockslide at Quintara and 12th Avenue: Innocent Lincoln Mark VIII Totally Pwned in the Sunset District This AMSaturday, March 26th, 2011
Nice, non-cliquish Mike Billings of the San Francisco Examiner has the deets.
And famous area photographer Jim M. Goldstein of JMG Galleries was on the scene as well – here’s his gallery.
Look out for those landslides, InSetters!
“At 0839 hrs today, 2 boulders fell from a hill and landed on 2 unoccupied vehicles in a residential neighborhood. There were no reported injuries from this incident.
Quintara between Cragmont and 12th Avenue will remained closed until 24 hours after the rains have stopped. The 6 Parnassus bus line will continue a switch back at 14th Avenue and Noriega. DEM will monitor the situation until 24 hours after the rains have stopped.”
The 12th Annual San Francisco Cherry Blossom Costume Parade and Contest went off without a hitch yesterday in Civic Center.
This shot from official Cherry Blossom Photographer David Yu captures the scene:
Here’s the awards ceremony under the pouring sun.
And here are the winners, starting their journey to Japantown:
Congratulations to all the participants.
See you next year!
The powerful San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee is, once again, having elections come November. You’ll be confronted, once again, with a ballot that’s filled with a bunch of names, most of which you’ve never heard of, and the obligation to check off your dozen favorites.
If you want, you can head over to the intersection of Market and Octavia this Saturday, April 3, 2010 and then head into the the LGBT Center‘s Ceremonial Room from Noon to 5:00 PM. Then you’ll be able to see and hear some of the candidates for DCCC in 2010 address members of the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club.
They’ll all be answering a few questions from the crowd. (I don’t know if you need to be a member of the club to drop by, but you should be able to join the club, of course, if you want.)
The 12th District (Assemblywoman Fiona Ma country) reps the west side and 13th District (Assemblymember Tom Ammiano country) reps the east side of town, mas o menos. Find your district and see if any of these folks will be one of your twelve favorites:
DCCC DISTRICT 12th CANDIDATES:
Sandra Lee Fewer
DCCC DISTRICT 13th CANDIDATES:
Melissa Ann A. Apuya
Robert Gabriel Haaland
Owen P. ODonnell
Joe Alioto Veronese
Choose or lose…
And, oh yes, Alex Volberding would like everyone to know that he too is running for the DCCC in the 12th. But the two lists above aren’t exhaustive, they just show who plans on showing up at the next Milk Club PAC meeting. (The entire exhausting list of candidates for S.F. has 51(!) names this go-around.)
Assemblymember Fiona Ma, who represents the interests of San Francisco’s west siiiiide in Sacramento, will be in the bowels of the San Francisco State Building at 455 Golden Gate Ave tonight at 7:oo P.M. to host a special constitutional convention panel being thrown by the San Francisco Young Democrats.
All the deets after the jump. See you there!
Here’s the scene this morning in the outer Outer Sunset District / Parkside area of San Francisco – it’s Congresswoman Jackie Speier at her Town Hall Meeting. Here’s the news – as far as the replacement for departing United States Supreme Court Justice David Souter is concerned, Jackie has “no doubt it’s going to be a woman.”
And who might that woman be? How about Miss San Carlos (San Mateo County) 1977 and current rust belt governor Jennifer Mulhern Granholm? She went to Cal and then Harvard Law and she’s the Democrat Sarah Palin – how’s them apples? Jackie helpfully points out that Ms. Granholm would be the first [actually second, see comments] naturalized citizen to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. We’ll see.

Look below to see what Representative Speier has been up to the past year.
When: May 2, 2009 – Saturday
10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Where: Ulloa Elementary School, 2650 42nd Avenue, San Francisco
