Can you spot the door what’s not red yellow  blue?

Monday, November 21st, 2011

See? It goes Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet, just like a rainbow:

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

There I was, trying to figure out where Girls’ Night is going to be this Wednesday, and I came across this:

Now that’s a five-star cat (which shares a name with a four-star restaurant in SoMA)

It goes cherry, white lemon, blue raspberry:

Just like a Popsicle Firecracker, non?

Did you know that the first popsicle was made in San Francisco by 11-year-old on a freezing night in 1905?

Frank W. Epperson invented the Popsicle on an extraordinarily cold night in San Francisco 

No sir, did not know that. Thanks Wiki!

Rich White People Prefer “White-Only” Christmas Lights in Civic Center – Everybody Else, Not So Much

Friday, December 10th, 2010

This is how the Holiday Tree in front of San Francisco City Hall was lit at night two years ago:

Via Steve Rhodes, who, like Visa, is Everywhere You Want To Be.

And here’s how it looks this year, with all the color drained out:

See the difference?

Apparently, it costed five-figures to remove the color from the lights on the Great Christmas Tree of Civic Center.

O.K. fine…

“Traditional” WASP Values Cost San Francisco $13K and a Colorful Christmas Tree

Monday, December 14th, 2009

This is how the Holiday Tree in front of San Francisco City Hall was lit at night last year:

Via Steve Rhodes, who, like Visa, is Everywhere You Want To Be.

But all that color in Civic Center offended certain WASP-y type people. People like Thurston Howell III et ux Lovey:

So here are the expensive new lights for 2009, or some of them anyway. These colorless lights cost $13,500, per City Insder Rachel Gordon

That ought to placate the richers for a while.

But couldn’t Rec and Park have put this matter to a vote, maybe online using that social media and whatnot? A penniless blogger could throw up a voting system in about five minutes – can’t Rec and Park do the same? This isn’t a matter of health or safety, right? So it seems appropriate that the Gilligans, Professors and the Mary Anns should have a say as well. Why do we seem to only listen to the Howells?

Oh well.

For 2009 anyway, enjoy your boring, WASPy-white, star-free Christmas Tree, San Francisco. But don’t give up Hope for Change (is that a “traditional” train ’round the tree R&P?) next year.
