What’s this stuff made of? It’s been there at McAllister and Divisadero in the north NoPA, DivCo, western Western Addition for months now:
This would be agin the rules even if it were temporary chalk, oh well…
I can’t believe that the Verizon people paid millions for the right to look like a bunch of jackasses during Super Bowl 50’s Super Week in Frisco.
Verizon doesn’t know/respect SF advertising laws? Apparently. Now it wants money back from our local Host Committee, the same committee that has committed to pay us, the people of San Francisco, back money if things don’t work out with SB50?
So that’s STRIKE ONE. STRIKE TWO is that even though AT&T DIRECTV isn’t an OFFICIAL SPONSOR, it has a BETTER LINE UP than what you can see up at SUPER BOWL CITY. See below. (IDK how available tickets are for any of these events now. I heard a radio ad when I was down at Pier 70 the other day but not since, oh well.
And STRIKE THREE is that AT&T’s party is down at PIER 70, where it belongs. Hey, why couldn’t Verizon have its parties down in that area instead of making office workers go through metal detectors in the Financial multiple times a day? (And man, Pier 70, the whole complex is amazing – there’s a lot of character / history here. Oh a and a few leaks when it rains, but they’re working on it…)
And of course, AT&T is working on making sure your phone works in the bay area over the next few days, no matter how many people are around you. But of course so is Verizon so it’s anybody’s guess who will win that race. I bet they’ll both do fine…
S0 BOO, Verizon. (Hey why not offer to pay SFGov all the money we’re out for your street party, Verizon? Write a fat check payable to “SF GENERAL FUND,” I’m srsly.
And YAY AT&T, why not?

DIRECTV COW at Pier 70: Sitting right outside the venue for the DIRECTV concert series, we have multiple antennas on the COW as well as two antennas inside the building that run with cables back to the COW. We can provide a tour and more details about network upgrades throughout the Bay Area and especially at Levi’s Stadium.
AT&T expanded its mobile Internet coverage: We invested more than $25 million so fans can post and share experiences on social media faster and easier than ever. This is part of our continuing investment to support growing demand for wireless devices and services… and, especially, to keep our customers connected from the moment they arrive for the big game.

Ooooh, street cred, sort of:
“In 2009, it was named the 34th best hard rock song of all time by VH1.”
“Ann Wilson revealed in interviews that the song was about Heart’s anger towards Mushroom Records’ attempted publicity stunt involving her and her sister Nancy Wilson in a made-up incestuous affair. The song particularly focuses on Ann’s rage towards a man who came up to her after a concert asking how her “lover” was. She initially thought he was talking about her boyfriend, band manager Michael Fisher. After he revealed he was talking about her sister Nancy, Ann became angry and went back to her hotel room to write the original lyrics of the song.”

You gonna burn, burn, burn, burn, burn to the wick

Anyway, if you advertise your product/service in this way on the sidewalks of Haight Ashbury, The Man (City Attorney Dennis Herrera) just might come at ya, Josef. Oh, what’s that, it’s chalk and it comes right off? Well, that’s what all those corporate PR types said, to no avail.
Just saying, Comrade.
I cry foul:
