THEORY: If a Corporation Illegally Markets on the Sidewalks of Frisco, It Will be Coerced Into Buying SFMTA MUNI Bus Ads

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

So here’s the theory. Say your marketing people go hog-wild with the chalk ads on the Streets of San Francisco, like this:

So then somebody calls 311 or somebody else posts a photo on the Twitter and then an investigator at the City Attorney’s Office takes a look at things and then the people at Parlophone / Warner Bros. get a jingle and then somehow things get smoothed over by the Brothers Warner or somebody else making at buy at the SFMTA MUNI for some hastily-created and more or less useless ads such as:

Cf. the Blue Wolf at a Dream Force about 1.5 years ago:

And then these hastily-created and more or less useless ads started to appear:

Just a theory, man.

And here’s the thing about chalk. You can’t scrub it off your car tires to avoid a citation and you can’t scuff into Frisco’s sidewalks, I’m srsly. What’s that, UBER, Microsoft, Verizon, et al, it’s “only temporary?” Well, yeah, sure, that’s what I’m talking about, it’s agin the rules, temporary or not.

The Dos Equis Most Interesting Show in the World Tour 2009 is a Must See

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

As promised, the free, “hella entertainingMost Interesting Show in the World rocked San Francisco’s SoMA district last night at The Mezzanine. Dos Equis picked up the tab and brought a truckload of smooth, refreshing  XX Ambar (Amber?) and XX Lager to hand out for free. Verily, it was “dope.” If this is how our corporate overlords want to spend their money during a recession, whom are we to argue?

See below to discover if this show is coming to your town next. If you’re in Houston, Texas, you can get your ticks now. Otherwise, you’ll have to figure things out on your own. (You had to go through ShowClix to get tickets in S.F.)

[UPDATE: Now you can get tickets for all shows by clicking on TOUR DATES here and then on “RSVP” for your town. Still a few ticks left in Fun Diego, I see…]

There were whips and crossbows in the house, but edged weapons were the order of the day:

Mr. and Mrs. G have a Mr. and Mrs. Smith thing going on, apparently.

This was the line early on going up Jessie Street betwixt 5th and 6th Streets. But everybody got in so long as they had their printed-out ticket. The Mezz at Triple Four Jessie appears to be a well run nightclub, with an aware but mellow staff that enforces rules without any unneccesary vitriol. Hurray!
