The driver of this ride was nowhere to be seen.
Man, that’s bold.
“Upcoming Tenant Convention
Please join me and tenant leaders from the Richmond and Haight-Ashbury for a Tenant Convention to be held on Saturday, January 18th at 1:00 p.m., at the Park Branch library (1893 Page St. between Cole and Shrader).
It will build on the momentum that was generated by the Our Richmond/No Eviction event that I convened on December 4, which drew over 70 participants from the Richmond eager to talk about what can be done to stop the eviction crisis that is tearing apart communities in District 1 and throughout the City.
Come and learn about what you can do if you or your neighbors are being faced with eviction and help us to plan for legislation to fight back.
This gathering is sponsored by the San Francisco Tenants Union, Housing Rights Committee, Causa Justa/Just Cause, Senior and Disability Action and ACCE.”
On most streets, nobody’s going to stop you, so why not do it?
The only downside would be causing an accident, ’cause you could have some liability there.
But see? These gals are Doin’ It Right – they parked in the middle of the block. Whatever you do, don’t park too close to a cross-street:

Ah, breaker one-nine, this here’s the Rubber Duck. You gotta copy on me, Big Ben, c’mon?
Ah, yeah, 10-4, Big Ben, for sure, for sure. By golly, it’s clean clear to Flag Town, c’mon.
Yeah, that’s a big 10-4 there, Big Ben, yeah, we definitely got the front door, good buddy.
Mercy sakes alive, looks like we got us a convoy…
Well it’s the morning of the second Sunday of June, so that means it’s almost time for the Haight Ashbury Street Festival.
Lets take a look at some photos from recent years.

…and all around:
From Bluoz: Upper Haight is for Lovers:
Let your freak flag fly, baby. From the Eastern Stage:
And here’s one from Chris Witte:
There’s a feeling I get/
when I look to the West…
…and the East…
…on Haight Street on the Second Sunday in June.
At least the Yelpers like Frank:
This ganga guy in purple will sue you for $1000 if you take his photo, or something:
And Obama in a Giants cap, just the way they had it at the recent Union Street Festival:
You know who loves the Haight Street Fair? Parole agents
A mass of humanity:
Hookahs! Get your hookahs! It’s Hookahs.com
A dancing baby grooving on Haight Street:
Can you see the superfluity of nuns in white approaching the Fair? Also note the F430 Ferrari supercar (sans license plates), one of many exoticars that made the journey to the Upper Haight today. Also note the sign: “No Open Containers of Alcohol.” Too bad.
Of course, all you need to get around the alcohol ban is a gallon jug of overproofed white rum and a giveaway “water” bottle. As seen on Ashbury.
Former District Five Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi on the scene
Poorbot looking for handouts:
“SHOW US YOUR BOOBS… please.” “FABULOUS PRIZES.” “DON’T WORRY (WE’RE GAY)” These inebriates residing above the Ben & Jerry’s at the corner of Ashbury were true to their word, tossing down trinkets to all flashers male and female.
You kmow why this San Francisco Native baby is better than you? Cause he had the foresight to be born in San Francisco, that’s why. He won the lottery/ when he was born.
And There You Have It.
It generally looks like this scene from yesterday night, with three prowlers on hand to handle one set of sleepy-headed car sleepers:

Or so it seems.
You know, lately, the past few months.
Don’t know why…

PS: MUNI sucks. And San Francisco’s “strong Mayor” systems sucks as well. Perhaps there’s a relationship there…
PPS: Speaking of which, Mayor Ed Lee’s approval rating is now in the 40’s and MUNI’s on-time rating is down in the 50’s. Perhaps there’s a relationship there…
PPPS: An on-time rating is a fairly stupid way to keep track of MUNI, but it’s what we have so oh well.
And no one’s been lying
‘Cause we don’t lie any more
Via the Niana Blog from Carl and Cole, here’s what you need:
“Whether you are a biker or not, it’s perfect for sealing your holiday cartons, boxes, or anything! People will be pleasantly surprised before they even open their packages.
2.5 inch x110 yards or 65mm x 100m. Wider than the regular 2 inch tapes (so that you don’t have to tape several times to ensure the carton opening is covered completely.)
I even used the bike lane tape on my checked luggage, and my suitcase totally stood out in the luggage conveyor at the airport. Not only my suitcase won’t be picked up by others by mistake any more, it also earned plenty of eyeballs :-)”
