OMG, Madonna’s Material Girl Collection Launches August 3rd! Giveaways at Macy’s Union Square!

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Now, you’re too young to remember Madonna’s Material Girl phase (well maybe this is a better example), but her 80′s look is back in a big way for 2010.

So, this coming Tuesday, August 3rd, you can start lining up at the Macy’s at 170 O’Farrell to get one of 200 free bandeau tops and a gift card and maybe even an autographed Madonna T-shirt if you can pull off a proper Material Girl get-up.

Appears as if Taylor Momsen won’t need too much help to get to an MG look. Anyway, look for her to model la coleccion starting next week:

 

See? Same lipstick:

The deets:

“The collection launches next week, on 8.3.10, at Macy’s Union Square, and this location is throwing two launch parties on Tuesday to celebrate! The first event will start promptly at 10 a.m, as the first 200 customers to line up at Macy’s in Union Square at this hour will receive a free bandeau top from the Material Girl collection and a $10 gift card valid only on August 3. At 11 a.m., show up in your best Madonna look for a chance to win an autographed Madonna t-shirt. Then, later in the day (at 3:00), everyone is invited to a shopping party at Macy’s!”

Ever more deets, after the jump

Will the Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill Gain Official California State Bird Status?

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

When they’re not eating flowers, the Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill like to fly around San Francisco in big flocks.

Wild parrots above the KPIX-TV building on Battery Street and also near 202 Green Street, where Philo T. Farnsworth invented television a while back. 

Some people are afraid of these red masked conures, but others would like them to become the state bird of California instead of the Valley Quail. We have some quail in San Francisco as well, but not all that many.

Will the Parrot cell phone-accessory company be able to change our state bird from quail to parrot?

Only Time Will Tell.
