You know, like this from last year.
This was the scene over the weekend in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle.
See? Just look at those kids go!

But you couldn’t hear this party, cause people were dancing whilst listening to a DJ’s short-range broadcast.
It’s Silent Frisco, baby!
Now, do you remember the five-star rated Panhandle Bandshell from a half-decade ago? It was placed in the same basic place in the park until it got chased away by real estate interests and the horrible white, wizened, wealthy NIMBYs what still infest the Upper Haight / North of Panhandle areas.
Will area NIMBY’s now start complaining about Silent Frisco?
I don’t know, maybe they never even noticed.
Bon Courage, Silent Frisco!
“Silent Frisco makes your “scene” not heard, preserving the right for artists express themselves in public settings where “noise” has previously made such activities impractical or illegal. Through the use of custom “silent” wireless headphone technology, Silent Frisco produces unique music experiences, where live artists rock the house without waking the neighbors!
WE OWN TWO THOUSAND 2-CHANNEL, FESTIVAL-OPTIMIZED WIRELESS HEADPHONES. Custom-designed and built from scratch, Silent Frisco headsets operate TWO simultaneous independent radio channel feeds, while providing the best in audio clarity, volume, and comfort.
Developed in the 1980s, ‘Silent Disco’ concept made it’s U.S. debut at the 2005 Bonnaroo Festival, where resident Dj and Silent Frisco founder Robbie “MoPo” Kowal (pictured) introduced the user-friendly technology to ecstatic audiences seeking additional late night programming. Since then, Kowal, and Silent Frisco team have been pushing this unique concept at dozens of major U.S. music and arts festivals.”
Don’t Call It “Frisco,” But Happy FRISCO Day, Officially, Today, Friday, April 13th, 2012 at Area ColllegesFriday, April 13th, 2012
Today’s a big day for San Francisco High School students.
“What is FRISCO Day?
FRISCO Day is an annual event held in spring to help all San Francisco Unified School District graduating seniors enroll in college, learn about financial literacy, develop support systems and build relationships with other students to help them complete the transition to college.
FRISCO Day (FRIday = Successful College Opportunities) started in April 2011 with more than 3,000 students participating at four locations: City College of San Francisco (CCSF) hosted all students who were CCSF bound and for students who were not yet sure of their educational plan, California State University (CSU) bound students went to San Francisco State’s campus to learn about the CSU system, University of California (UC) bound students visited UC San Francisco Mission Bay to learn about the UC system, and other two-and four-year public and private college bound students attended workshops delivered by the College Bound Network held at the Fort Mason Conference Center.
This year, students will go to CCSF (those students CCSF bound and for students who were not yet sure of their educational plan), University of California San Francisco Mission Bay, UCSF (those students who plan on going to a UC) and St. Mary’s Conference Center (for students who plan to attend a CSU or other 2 or 4 year colleges).

Bon courage, seniors!
AskMen.com, that advertising-choked, Internet laddie magazine home of Jessica Alba, Beyonce, Megan Fox, and Scarlett Johansson, today announced the results of its “Top 29 Cities for Men to Live In“, ranking San Francisco third-best.
Well that’s par for the course for SF, CA, but what about their advice concerning where to go and what to do? It seems more appropriate for my grandmotherthan a swinging young AskMen man. But you judge for yourself, below.

Anyway, here’s their advice:
Can’t Miss: Taking a date for martinis at Top of the Mark
To Avoid: Avoid the Tenderloin district like the plague, lest you actually catch some
Tipping: Gratuity is going to cost you; 20% is considered the bare minimum
San Francisco Bay also features Alcatraz prison, known as the inescapable “rock.” Take the ferry out to what is now a museum, which gives riders a picturesque view of San Francisco’s legendary Golden Gate Bridge.
For the record, the crowd at the Top of the Mark skews older [UNDERSTATEMENT MODE= OFF] to put it mildly, plague is associated with neighboring San Mateo County (not San Francisco’s Tenderloin, which youths would find much more entertaining than Snob Hill), and 20% is considered an average tip around town.
All right, maybe Askmen’s advice would be good for your skinflint grandpa, the one who has never heard about Alcatraz. You know, the one who never tips more than 10% (of the pre-tax total, of course – he never would base his tax on the total bill, oh no).
Fine. But youthful laddie mag readers might not want to rely on Askmen.com.
Read all the gritty nitty and see which burg topped the list, after the jump.
Mark “Papa” Guardado, President of the Hells Angels’ San Francisco chapter, was killed in the Mission District on September 2nd. Tomorrow’s funeral should be well-attended.
The vigil will be held Sunday at 7 p.m. and a funeral Monday at 10 a.m. at Duggan’s Serra Mortuaryat 500 Westlake Ave. in Daly City, with interment to follow at Cypress Lawn cemetery in Colma. The two-wheeled funeral procession could be the largest in Bay Area history.
This is what the sidewalk memorial for Papa Frisco looked like today at 24th and Treat in the Mission. Click to expand:
The Guardian Angels were on patrol in this area over the weekend and there are extra police around as well.
Let’s hope for a peaceful day tomorrow.
