You’d think the Oakland Warriors would be paying for blacktop ball in, IDK, Oakland?

Wonder if they’ll be able to advertise here, the way they fixed things at the (failed? failing? improving?) Willie Brown Academy…

We’ll find out Sept 10th.

New Wayfinding Signs Point Tourists on Bikes Off of Fell Street and On to the Panhandle Bike Path

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

You have many legal choices here, heading west at Baker – you can go on the bike path or you can go on the left side of the left lane of Fell, or you can go on the right side of the right lane of Fell, or (assuming you’re feeling especially vigorous and can keep up with Frisco’s version of a freeway even though it’s going uphill in this area) you can TAKE THE LANE:

I’ve seen people doing all of these things, but 99% of the time, ppl take the bike path, as they should. And this especially applies to rental bike tourists, who generally don’t seem to be aware of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle Bicycle Path. Hence the wayfinding sign TO PANHANDLE PATH (even though it’s actually pointing exactly AT the path, oh well.

But these signs are kind of small, so I’ll still expect to see tourists on Fell Street oh well. And then on the return trip to their Union Square or Twitterloin hotels, I’ll still expect others to come east on the bike path and then go the wrong way on Fell for a couple blocks until they give up swimming upstream at Divisadero – that’s where the helmetless blond Euros with the 12 weeks of annual vacay generally seem to lose their religion to go the wrong way on, as stated, Frisco’s version of a freeway, oh well…

SAVE THE DATE: Our Oakland Warriors Will Do _Something_ on September 10th, 2016, to Promote Their Move to Frisco

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016

One supposes. Somewhere around Golden Gate Park?

Let’s see here, they just did their advertising deal with SFUSD.

And the Panhandle blacktop backboards, well they’re all shut down now, getting refurbished. See?

And the Oakland Warriors have been on a somewhat offensive charm offensive in Frisco lately, the better to do battle with these people, as the UCSF Mission Bay people wonder about their future.

I suppose we’ll just have to wait ’til September 10th…

The Urban School Expands All the Way to Oak Street – Here It Is, You Won’t be Able to Miss It

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

The house you see on the left used to be on the right – they moved it east a good 40 yards to make way.

Anyway, this location on busy, busy Oak will soon raise the profile of The Urban School…

Whistling-Blowing Park Ranger Harshes Owner of Unlicensed, Unleashed Dog in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle

Friday, April 8th, 2016

Camera left shows the Ranger and camera right shows the errant dog owner.

I’ve never seen this:

Reader Notes:

I’m assuming the dog’s unlicensed, as the vast majority of canines aren’t licensed in Frisco and I imagine the rate for non leash owning dog owners is lower still.

Don’t know if any woo woo or wee wee came out or if it was picked up.

The owner and dog sauntered away, with no threat of getting cited, it appeared.

Anyway, I’ve never seen this…
