They used to stop at 5th Street, but now they don’t – they go farther this year.
Won’t this please our corporate overlords at Twitter? (Probably not, but, you know, can’t hurt to try.)
All right, come to the annual lighting ceremony with the Mayor this Thursday evening, if you want:
“Snowflakes on Market – Lighting Ceremony
Nov. 17, 2011 through mid-January 2012
More than 140 five-foot-wide energy-saving LED illuminated snowflakes will decorate Market Street’s signature “Path of Gold” light poles this winter from Second to Sixth streets. A lighting ceremony, featuring dancers from the San Francisco Ballet’s Nutcracker, is scheduled for Nov. 17 at 6 p.m. near the cable car turnaround at Powell and Market streets. The event is free and open to the public. For information, visit www.marketstreetassociation.org.
It will go a little something like this, probably.
Dixitque Gavin fiat lux, et facta est lux:
Those are Nutcracker-starring “Snowflakes” from the San Francisco Ballet. (The run starts up again December 9th this year.) Jessica Carter is the snowflake in the middle, so I’m told.
One or both of these people work security at the Old Navy Flagship store at Fourth and Market.
Seems as if the O.N. security staff was keeping as busy as the overworked clerks, what with all the descriptions of perps being bandied about on walkie talkies
Oh well, it’s a living.

Apple’s Black Friday discounts are bigger than expected for 2010.
Now, I wouldn’t ever recommend you starting down the path of Apple for a real computer (something like a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro or an iMac*) but you might find something in the iPad-or-smaller-category appealing.
Act now, today only:
*Why? Cause Apple’s competition is generally harder, better, faster, stronger, cheaper and will be for the foreseeable future.

See? This was the warm-up to show folks how to do the hottest(?) dance since the Macarena. If you were able to imitate these critters well enough, you could have won yourself free tickets yesterday, or something.
People have been practicing for weeks, as we see, in the Castro:
Congratulations to all the winners!
OVO is fantastic.
OVO’s been going been going for a week or so, but people were calling yesterday’s performance Opening Night – the food was free for some reason and there were a lot of San Francisco Swells and/or People You’d Recognize in the crowd, including Olympic Gold Medal-winning Kristi Yamaguchi - she’s now Twittering about how she was in “constant awe” last night.
Myself, I liked the suspended rope bit from Maxim Kozlov and Inna Mayorova best but the whole show was great.
The kiwi ants were memorable…
…and the very flexible spider was off the hook:
All the fun ends January 24th, 2010
