Why Don’t You Go On the “San Francisco Ghost Hunt” for Just $20 – It’s Guaranteed!

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Whenever you see this kind of scene on the Streets of San Francisco, odds are it’s just local Ghostbuster Jim Fassbinder and his nightly San Francisco Ghost Hunt.

This highly-rated three-hour tour of the Victorians around Lower Specific Whites Pacific Heights is guaranteed, in a way, and for $20 you can’t beat that.

As seen California Street for the past 13 years. Which one of these people is the ghost?

Here’s your guarantee:

“I really can’t guarantee ghosts. But I can guarantee the San Francisco Ghost Hunt will be nearly three hours of unearthly fun! You’ll see wonderful Victorian mansions and learn the city’s haunted history, be touched time and again by the magic of supernatural beliefs, and hear documented authentic ghost stories presented with passion and drama. You will be amazed to learn a few ways to directly encounter a ghost yourself…if you dare. You will get exercise, fresh air, and have an outstanding good time. The San Francisco Ghost Hunt is: humor and history, emotion and education; with supernatural spookiness! You will be entertained, enlightened and enchanted. That’s absolutely GUARANTEED!”

And they’re baaaaaa-ack for 2011! See?

See you there!

Your Police Station’s Daily Overnight Crime-Accident Update: Available on the Twitter These Days, Probably

Friday, March 25th, 2011

Does your police station/area Captain/area Commander have its/his/her very own Twitter feed these days? If not, why not?

This is how the Richmond District Police Station does it, for example:

3/24@1115PM Victim on 38 Geary bus fell asleep listening to iPhone. She woke up when her music stopped. 4 perps took the phone & fled*

3/25@658AM Fulton@Park Presidio-car making right turn struck pedestrian in the X-walk. Ped taken to hospital by ambulance.

Now of course, there are others who got going last year and before, like Captain Ann Mannix in the Western Addition.

What about your police station? What’s it Twitter?

Geary Boulevard, the No Left Turn world champ:

What’s that, you don’t have a Twitter feed available for your area?

Well, why not? Ask for one, if you want.

*Or get a Microsoft Zune HD instead for like $100 –  nobody will try to steal it, I can guarantee you that.

Criminals From Back East Cold-Busted at Marina Apple Store – Stolen Credit Cards Used to Buy Mad Apple Products

Friday, October 1st, 2010

Police Captain Ann Mannix of Northern Station took time out of her bizzay sked to Tweet about a couple fraud arrests in the Great White North:

“Great fraud arrest on wed, Apple Store victim; 2 suspects arrested with lots of Apple products from many stores in Salifornia  bought with stolen credit cards, both suspects flew in from east coast for their spree.”

Criminals just love Apple products, huh?

This is how employees of the Apple Store on Chestnut greeted me when I walked in the joint on Opening Day back in aught-seven. Good times…

Let’s hope nobody else messes with the Big Apple:

Courage.

Huge Harvey Milk Candidate Meeting this Saturday, Bay Guardian Issues Endorsements

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

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:
John Avalos
Michael Bornstein
Andrew Clark
Sandra Lee Fewer
Chris Gembinski
Hene Kelley
Tualatai Mamoe
Eric Mar
Milton Marks
Jake McGoldrick
Jane Morrison
Melanie Nutter
Kelenia Olsen
Connie O’Connor
Arlo Smith
David Wong
Larry Yee

DCCC DISTRICT 13th  CANDIDATES:
Melissa Ann A. Apuya
David Campos
David Chiu
Ryan Clary
Michael Goldstein
Robert Gabriel Haaland
Rick Hauptman
Hope Johnson
Joseph Julian
Leslie Katz
Rafael Mandelman
Kim-Shree Maufas
Carole Migden
Owen P. ODonnell
Aaron Peskin
Eric Quezada
Alix Rosenthal
Tom Taylor
Joe Alioto Veronese
Debra Walker

And the San Francisco Bay Guardian has just issued its endorsements for the DCCC today.

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.)
