I’ve never seen anything like that in a signature line.

In other news, Charlie lives – he just got a life sentence on a farm someplace after his mouthpiece struck a plea bargain with Dennis Herrera and the San Francisco City Attorney’s Office.

But, come to think of it, attorney John Mounier is actually “The Animal Attacker Protector,” IRL.

Oh well.

TARGET Just Keeps on Giving to San Franciscans – Lucky “Eva E” Finds Golden Ticket in Colma

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

The next time some allegedly rich allegedly yuppie-types* say something like, “…San Franciscans are supposedly ["supposedly?" what?] going elsewhere such as Colma and Serramonte for their department store fix….,” you can just point to the case of San Francisco resident Eve E. Why? Well, she just made a surprising discovery after making a run for the border to do a little shopping at one of the busiest tar-GHEY stores in the world.

Per NESTLE USA:

“The first lucky winner, Eva E. of San Francisco, presented her shiny Golden Ticket to WONKA for official verification, and it has been verified as the first genuine WONKA Golden Ticket! WONKA’s Golden Ticket delivers the Grand Prize of a lifetime: a trip around the world for the winner and three guests. The prize is worth up to $40,000.”

(You can actually go out and buy a WONKA bar? Did not know that, no sir.)

What it’s like to discover the Golden Ticket:

Charlie Bucket was lucky to have a Target near where he was living…

*Is that a slur or an attack? “Rich, Young, Urban, and Professional” – I don’t think so…

All the deets:

Extra! Extra! First Two WONKA Golden Tickets Found!

Only Eight Coveted Tickets Remain in America’s Search for “Gold”

GLENDALE, Calif., July 27 — The hunt for WONKA’s legendary Golden Tickets is now more intense than ever. Inspired by the grand search in the beloved WONKA story, new WONKA® Exceptionals chocolate bars were distributed across the country, and a WONKA Golden Ticket was placed inside 10 of them. Today, WONKA announced that two of 10 Golden Tickets have been found.

The first lucky winner, Eva E. of San Francisco, presented her shiny Golden Ticket to WONKA for official verification, and it has been verified as the first genuine WONKA Golden Ticket!WONKA’s Golden Ticket delivers the Grand Prize of a lifetime: a trip around the world for the winner and three guests. The prize is worth up to $40,000.

The second winner, Jason C. of Southaven, Miss., had his Golden Ticket verified not long after Eva.

“We’re thrilled for Eva and Jason, and can’t wait to hear more about the adventures they have planned for their globetrotting journeys,” said Patricia Bowles, spokesperson, Nestle Confections & Snacks. “This serves as a good reminder that only eight WONKA Golden Tickets remain to be found. We look forward to celebrating as more Ticket holders come forward.”

Eva found her Golden Ticket in a WONKA Exceptionals Chocolate Waterfall Bar purchased at a Target® store in Colma, Calif. Jason found his in a WONKA Exceptionals Domed Dark Chocolate Bar at his local Walmart® store in Southaven, Miss. The WONKA Chocolate Waterfall Bar and Domed Dark Chocolate Bar are two-of-three varieties of new WONKA Exceptionals chocolates (the third is the Scrumdiddlyumptious Chocolate Bar). The collection of delicious chocolate can be purchased at retailers nationwide.

As for the first two Grand Prize winners, where will they go? What do they plan to do, and who will they take with them? One thing is certain: they will only be limited by their imaginations!

Ever more deets from our corporate overlords, after the jump

Senator Leland Yee Helps to Re-Open Sava Pool in the Parkside

Saturday, December 20th, 2008

Well it’s finally here: San Francisco’s fabulous brand-spanking-new Charlie Sava Pool at 2695 19th Avenue near Wawona in the Parkside / Sunset area. It’s from Mark Cavagnero Associates & Paulett Taggart Architects. Do you like it? Per KCBS:

“Lisa Seitz Gruwell with the Department of Recreation and Parks called the public facility state of the art. “The water system is designed to maximize re-use,” said Seitz Gruwell. “This is probably the most environmentally friendly pool in the city and probably in California.”

Now it’s not as long as the Olympic Club’s gorgeous Olympic-class pool, but Sava Pool is a standard 75-foot length now, so that’s a good thing.

The scene this morning with hundreds at the ribbon-cutting ceremony, with Mike Farrah, Director of Mayor Gavin Newsom’s Office of Neighborhood Services, on hand:

Let’s head inside to see the nice looking locker room:

People started using it immediately:

A relay race among local high schools:

Students from Lowell High School won all the relay races (apparently) during the grand opening:

Lots of windows – they’re great. You can see the Pacific. Can you spot the Farallones?

Yes, today you can. Here’s the view looking west from inside the building – Southeast Farallon on the left and Sugarloaf Island on the right:

Fashion update - Carmen’s red shoes caused a minor frisson (“oh my gosh, look at those!”):

Take a look at the destruction of the old and the construction of the new, if you’d like.

Hopefully, the NIMBYs won’t be too upset (they usually get over things after a few years.) And of course this nice pool is a much nicer thing for this neighborhood to be famous for compared with that other fitness center they had at nearby 1202 Vicente.

So there you have it. Would a visit here be worth your hard-earned $4? Signs point to YES.

Just grab your partner (“a kinda out-of-shape 30 yo guy working for some famous tech company doing cool work helping non-profits save the world”) and go.

See you there!
