Well, here it is, from the Bing Maps:
(IDK, this is less offensive than “Uptown Tenderloin,” one supposes, you know, coming from San Francisco’s non-profit profiteers.)
French Quarter sounds a bit, grandiose?
Here’s the cure, as usual, from wilds of the Internet:
“Ha. No one here knows by that name. There’s not a distinct boundary for the collection of French-serving restaurants and businesses near the French Consulate, the church and school of Notre Dame des Victoires on Bush Street. But apparently it’s been dubbed by some hotel marketing person as the “French Quarter.” Belden Alley and Claude Alley intersect with Bush Street, and each have some French cafes. On Bush/Grant Ave. is the Cafe de la Presse — a coffee house with French and international newspapers, and restaurant. There’s Cafe Claude on Claude and some other bistros. Plouf! is an excellent mussel house on Belden…”
All right, keep on Binging, Microsoft.
Flyers Just Posted All Over Town: $5000.00 REWARD – MISSING PERSON – SEAN SIDI – MEDICALLY DEPENDENTTuesday, July 16th, 2013
A reward has just been offered.

WHEN: July 14, 2013 between 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
WHERE: On Broderick between Fell and Oak opposite Peet’s coffee.
There is parking in the DMV lot
WHAT: Pick up new fliers with the Reward Offering. Receive a location assignment for posting of fliers.
Sidi Friends and the San Francisco Community,
We would like to express our gratitude for all the tremendous support that we have received from you. So many of you have brought us food, donated money, spent hours posting fliers and helped in any way possible. This outpouring of love and kindness has kept us going in the absence of our beautiful son Sean.
We have yet to receive a single clue of Sean’s location. As many of you know, we have placed fliers all over San Francisco, Marin, and some in the East Bay. We have sent search parties from San Francisco all the way to the Oregon border. Last weekend, Claude (Sean’s dad) and two friends flew up to Montana to the Rainbow Gathering. This was a gathering of as many as 10,000 hippies and transient individuals. Some of the Rainbow family were in the park when Sean disappeared and it was speculated that he might be at this gathering. Unfortunately, Sean was not at the event, however, Claude and his friends managed to spread the word and hand out hundreds of photos and fliers.
At this point it is time to bring the search to the next level. We are now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to Sean’s safe return. We are hoping this will stimulate further interest and some possible solid leads. As a result, we need your help to post these new fliers and help spread this information.
If you are able to help us out, please join us this Sunday, July 14th. We will have 6,000 freshly printed fliers available to distribute. There are specific neighborhoods/locations that we would like to be certain to cover, however, if you prefer you have the option of placing the fliers in your own neighborhood. Be sure to bring a staple gun or tape (or both).
Thank you so very much,
The Sidi Family”

I showed up late at last night’s NightLife so I wasn’t able to squeeze in at the Swamp – here’s the best shot I have of the crowd while it sang “Happy Birthday” to San Francisco’s favorite reptile:

Bon Anniversaire, Claude! California Academy of Sciences Offers Fish Cupcakes to Special Albino AlligatorWednesday, September 15th, 2010
KTVU TV has the best video of the affair, AFAICS (and there’s no pesky commercial so that’s a bonus).
The observation galleries were filled with sciencey-types:

Claude knew something was going on – he was looking upwards like a pup about to get a special treat:
A couple of human birthday boys brought over the special cupcakes as Director of Communications Stephanie Stone emcee’d the affair:
Then the chief gator wrangler went over the wall and down the ladder – once more into the breach, dear friends:
She quickly tamed the hungry beast and kept it under control until…
…the special gatorcakes came down:
Then it was a frenzy:
Chewing, sort of:
…but not all. Here, some green “frosting” ends up landing on his snout:
Afterwards, there were plenty of regular cupcakes to go around for those born on 9-15:
Joyeux anniversaire! Bonne fête!
See you next year.
