NOPNA 10th Annual Block Party a Huge Success on Lyon Street in 2010

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

This is what Lyon Street looked like today at NOPNA‘s (yeah, they probably could use a real website and “RESPECT THE NEIGHBORHOOD” does come off a little sanctermonious, but what can you do?) Tenth Annual Block Party today.

Complete with a fire truck…

…moon bounce….

and an open mike. (OMG, could this be Performance Art in the Panhandle?)

“I’ll be here all week,” he says. Hilarious.

Yes, of course, there were NIMBYs there. And yes, there were elements and/or known sympathisers of that horrible PRO-SF Panhandle Residents Organization Stanyan/Fulton (they’re On The Record as being against Performance Art – can you believe it?) in the house. But what can you do?

A good time was had by all.

See you next year!

NOPNA 9th Annual Block Party a Huge Success on Lyon Street

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

This was the scene yesterday outside of beloved Parkside Market on Hayes in the North of Panhandle / NOPA area of San Francisco - it’s the 9th Annual Block Party for the neighborhood, with “MUSIC and BBQ!”

Didn’t see any bubbles this year, oh well. Here’s what it looked like yesterday.

This pooch was on best behavior and was soon able to gain access to the nearby burger. One chomp and it was gone.

Speaking of electricity, see this band? They were loud.

All thanks to sweet, sweet AC electricty – that sure beats a shopping cart full of car batteries.
