The SF Recreation and Park Department Picks a Cold December Day to Confiscate This Communal Tent in GGPMonday, December 9th, 2013
I’ll tell you, it’s just 59 degrees up near the ceiling of my living room this chilly AM, but I think I’m getting used to our current cold snap. People who might feel differently would be those who were making this big-ass tent their home in Golden Gate Park as recently as Thursday night.
Man, that was a big-ass tent:

Do hippies really try to pitch tents within a couple hundred yards of the Conservatory of Flowers? Hippies do. Apparently. I guess it makes for an easy commute to Upper Haight or wherever.
Anyway, here’s the scene about an hour later, with this woman yelling, incredulous, saying, “The tent’s gone? They took the fucking tent?” And dude up the hill was all, ” I tried to stop them.”
I know that RPD staffers get irked by homeless people living in GGP but the 415 is experiencing a pretty epic cold snap these days and Golden Gate Park has the coldest places in the city, like four or five degrees colder than what gets officially reported for San Francisco.
So I think I’d probably let the hippies be until things warm up a bit, just saying.
“We first reported on the film about a year ago when we learned that Hanson was developing a movie based on the late legendary surfer Jay Moriarty and that Sean Penn was considering the Hesson role. According to Variety, the story will center on Moriarty’s “quest to ride the iconic Northern California break known as Mavericks, where winter swells bring in treacherous waves the size of five-story buildings.”
O. K. then.

Not exactly sure how long this snow on Polk Street will stick around, but you should be able to see it today, anyway.

San Francisco to Open City Hall Doors to Public on Sunday, December 12th from 2 – 5 p.m. with Holiday Snow Park, Mobile Zoo & Other Family Activities in Civic Center Plaza
Mayor Gavin Newsom and First Lady Jennifer Siebel Newsom today announced that City Hall will open its doors and offices to the public for the first-ever City Hall Holiday Open House on Sunday, December 12 from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. Civic Center Plaza will also host family activities this Sunday, including a first-ever children’s snow park and a mobile zoo.
“The holidays are a time for family and friends to gather in celebration of all we have to be thankful for and the new year ahead,” said Mayor Newsom. “This Sunday, Jennifer and I want to invite families from across the City to join us at City Hall in honor of the season at our Holiday Open House.”
This event is free and open to the public and will provide guests with an opportunity to meet the Mayor, tour City Hall and connect with many of the City’s elected officials and departments’ staff. Many Supervisors and other elected officials will also be opening their offices to the public. Guests will be treated to holiday cookies, hot cocoa and entertainment by Magik Magik Orchestra.
Also, Mayor Newsom is asking guests to support the San Francisco Food Bank’s Holiday Food Drive by bringing nonperishable food items to the open house. No one should go hungry over the holidays or any time of the year.
The snow park will be open from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. in Civic Center’s Joseph L. Alioto Performing Arts Piazza. It will include a snow run for young children and a snow play area for babies. There will also be jumpy houses and holiday music. A mobile zoo for children will also be onsite from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Penn would play “Rick ‘Frosty’ Hesson, an ex-lifeguard, champion swimmer and mentor to the tragic Moriarty.”
That’s pretty much all the detail that’s out there right now. They’re still just talking about it.
