Party Poopers Put Up a Sign at California and Mason – Simple “HILL” on Nob Hill Replaced with “LOW GROUND CLEARANCE”

Wednesday, December 20th, 2017

Back in my day, a simple say saying “HILL” was all that prevented out of towners with long vehicles from high centering, and that was the way we liked it!

But these days, we get a graphic graphic:

The signs I can see online all have railroad tracks and just three lighting bolts, so maybe this is a custom job…

Ah, mem’ries:

Anyway, it’s nice to see AS and the Giants working together on something, as opposed to this land deal

Unloved Marissa Mayer Signage has “Taken a Beating” in Golden Gate Park – And Now Area Yahoo Uses Buffalo Paddock Sign as a Bottle Opener

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Get up to speed here, from a couple years ago.

I still don’t know what people are doing to this sign in the Buffalo Paddock* in Golden Gate Park. I don’t think the vandals mind her donating money – what, like $50,000? But I think they don’t like the idea of the thank you sign being planted here. Just a WAG.

Anyway, here it is, taking another beating, this time to pop the top off of a beer bottle, or three:

Maybe Rec and Park should melt down this rusty sign for reuse and then somehow thank Marissa Mayer and Zachary Bogue some other way?

*Or is it Bison Paddock? I can’t keep up.

Annual “4-20 Day” Irks SFGov Because It Can’t Make Money Off Of It – But Whole Foods Stanyan Just Looooves It

Thursday, March 24th, 2016

It’s funny how some of the white, wizened, wealthy homeowners of the Western Addition (you know, the Nopa, the NOPNA, the Alamo Square) used to try to lobby the corner liquor stores of the 94117 to shut down on their busiest day of the year, Bay to Breakers Sunday.

Needless to say, the lika sto owners told the richers to go to Hell, you know, effectively, by staying open and selling all the booze they could sell.

Now let’s head over to SoPa (South of Panhandle, I’m srsly, that’s the term some realtors use) to see the Haight Stanyan Whole Foods getting ready on the day before its busiest day of the year, April 20th:

So, WF is happy, but Rec and Park is all, “Well, how is this event good for us?”

Sorry RPD, 420 is NOT good for you. (Why not just shut it down? Oh, that’s right, you can’t.)

Oh well.

Here’s how things will go in 2016 – it should be a relatively mellow Hump Day Wednesday:

The unofficial time line of 420 day
An example of the typical rundown from tokeofthetown.com – things may change from year to year, especially if 4/20 falls midweek.

  • 10:30 am – The “unofficial” vendors usually begin to arrive
  • 1 pm – The crowds start to get a bit thick as does the haze of smoke over the crowd
  • 3 pm – It’s now wall-to-wall stoners
  • 4:20 pm – It’s go time: crowd is at their peak, drum beats get more frenzied, and hippie girls twirl faster as 4:20 approaches

A good day to call in sick / play hooky..

Beast From Sky: The Message Our Super Bowl 50 “Host Committee” Has for Us is “BUD LIGHT … FOR AMERICA!”

Saturday, February 6th, 2016

This is as close as I’ll get to Super Bowl L:

What could be more inappropriate?

At least I understood that one. This one was illegible to all concerned. Using my camera I could figure it out mostly, but I read it (from the wrong side) as JOIN US AT UNION 20 or JOIN US AT UNION 50, which I imagined to be a new (or pop-up) eatery or bar. I just couldn’t make out the squiggly on the big “Q,” oh well:

This is the best I can do here. (Is this effective advertising?)

7J7C0377 copy

Oh, here we go – some of these ads are kind of surreal, huh?

Wondering if Bud Light ads in Canada say, “BUD LIGHT … FOR CANADA!”

Gp
