These signs are held in place by the world’s tiniest padlocks – you can see one on the right:
That’s not too groovy, is it, man?
All’s I can say about this one is that we’ll have to wait and see how it works out. Deets below.
You know who likes today’s news? It’s Benji Tosi, American Grand Champion:
This one could prove popular:
I wouldn’t plan on driving through the area anytime before or after 1:00 PM on Sunday, but feel free to sit and or lie about the sidewalks – this could be your last chance before the new law* kicks in.
It’ll be mayhem once again at the corner of Haight and Ashbury:
See you there!
*”In the City and County of San Francisco, during the hours between seven a.m. and 11 p.m., it is unlawful to sit or lie down upon a public sidewalk, or upon a blanket, chair, stool, or any other object placed on a public sidewalk.”
But, Bike There is not enough for at least one Berkeley resident at the tersely-named Berkeley Blog. And believe it or not, Sylvia Paull‘s recent tale of woe got a mention in the New York Timeseses’ The Bay Area. Seems that, after consulting her PC and starting a journey on her $5000* custom-made, carbon/titanium/unobtainium Ben Serrota ride:
“‘Ms. Paul found herself pushing her bike up ‘Everest’ hills. ‘If Google bicycle maps had told me the truth,’ she said, ‘I think I would have missed the party or found a ride with friends.’”
She should ask for a full refund from Google or something, huh? Or, alternatively, she could invest $5 or so in a bike map that shows hills.
Over here in the West Si-iiide of the Bay, people use the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition‘s SF Bike Map and Walking Guide to see how hilly the streets are. On the East si-iiide, you all have a wealth of free online sources plus the East Bay Bicycle Coalition‘s East of the Hills Map. It looks a bit like this:
Easy peasy, right?
Of course, some people like Get There more than others, but oh well.
*Mas o menos, those things cost muy dinero, especially the ones that are “much easier” to carry on BART than a laptop PC.
Personally, I’m thinking the SFPD could have done a better job with the photos they released of the two suspects in last week’s tragedy in the Sunset District. Anyway, find an effort at enhancing the photos below.
The very wide and usually quiet Moraga Street:
Here’s Polly’s versions of the SFPD-released captures:

That’s it, there aren’t any official updates for this case.
*Moraga Avenue isn’t in the Avenues, it’s in the Presidio, for some reason.
This scene is about as crunchy as you could imagine. Click to expand:
Or TugTown Pirates, either way.
Some stores close as late as 9:00 PM, so there’s still time to get your share.
When you expected it least and needed it most on a hot one like today, be advised that it’s Free Scoop Day at participating Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream shops. Be sure to try new flavors like Mission to Marzipan and Peanut Butter Cookie Dough.
But make sure you finish your treat before you get back in line for another cone. Last year, these people got back in the queue immediately and finished up as they got to the door again. Bad form:
See you there!
