OMG, “THE HUNGER GAMES EXHIBITION” is Coming to Frisco! Our Palace of Fine Arts to Become THE INNOVATION HANGAR Starting Feb 13th 2016Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015
Watch out, The Hunger Games – The Exhibition is coming/ to town, starting February 13th, 2016! That’s right, fellow Panemanians, Our historic Palace of Fine Arts will soon become THE INNOVATION HANGAR and you’ll be able to see it all for just $29.95.
You know, for kids:
See for yourself at, and I’m srsly, the iHangar.com.
I can think of more than a few 94123 landfill-dwelling millionaires who are GOING TO BE PISSED about this attraction, when they find out that troubled Supervisor Mark Farrell’s District 2 will soon transform troubled President Snow’s tech-rich District 3
ASSIGNMENT DESK: Hey, just how much is Hollywood going to pay SFGov / Rec and Park for all the trouble? One wonders if we’re charging a $100,000 “premium reservation fee,” or a $50,000 “park regeneration fee.”
Don’t stop believing, Panamaniacs – the iHangar is for reals.
See you there!
Video: RedBull “SteepCrest 2014” on De Haro in Potrero Hill – Bike and Skateboard Ramp Jumps – Kind of a NothingburgerMonday, November 24th, 2014
I’d wondered why I hadn’t heard of any coverage of this one.
It was kind of a nothingburger. See?
I don’t know, if Red Bull wants to start shutting down streets to promote itself, I think it could come up with some better ideas.
Here are just a few. Hey RB, try to be more like this:
Video games-wise, Sega Genesis used to be king.
Here’s what’s left of the American part of the company, as seen in San Francisco in 2013.

Here’s What Tonight’s World Series Viewing Party Will Look Like – But No Alcohol in Civic Center – Vote No on Prop BSunday, October 28th, 2012
You’re invited to come to Civic Center tonight to see Game Four of the World Series on a makeshift “Jumbotron.”
See you at 5:07 PM (or earlier, to get a good spot if you want to be able to actually see the action unobstructed.)
It’ll look like this, but probably with more Matt Cain than Timothy Leroy Lincecum on the screen:

The SFPD requests (more or less) that you transfer your alcohol to unmarked containers, thusly:
And, oh yes, speaking of the Rec and Park, Remember to Vote No on Proposition B (November 2012), the so-called “Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond”
Well, because Prop. B is too costly for San Francisco
And also because Reform is Needed at San Francisco’s Recreation and Parks Department.
Also because area lawyer Philip Alan Ginsburg would consider passage of Prop B (November 2012) an endorsement of how he’s running the RPD.
Now, let’s hear from San Francisco Mayor Ron Conway,* after the jump. (Spoiler: He wants you to go to Chipotle’s and spend your money before you blow town.)
PS: The after party will be in the Mission District – spread the word, bring fireworks.
*Poor Sony. It appears that any television-like contraption bigger than 100 inches now gets the generic term “jumbotron.”
“Displays similar to the Jumbotron include:
- Martin Professional LED Screens
- Barco LED Screens
- D3 LED‘s Dynamic Digital Displays
- Daktronics ProStar
- Mitsubishi DiamondVision
- Panasonic AstroVision
- Philips Vidiwall
- Toshiba TechnoRainbow”
OMG, OMG, the Free Olympic Games Viewing Party is Coming August 7th through August 11th in Civic CenterFriday, July 6th, 2012
I’ll tell you, I haven’t seen anything from the NBC in years and the games of the 2012 Olympiad aren’t going to change anything.
But you, you love the Olympics, so get on out to Civic Center Plaza to watch them on a gigantic screen for free from August 7th through August 11th, why not?

Let’s hope that area politicians won’t show up at this one to speechify…

“Squaw Valley is an incredible and diverse mountain, and we are committed to honoring every aspect of the mountain’s history, legacy and legend,” said Andy Wirth, Squaw Valley’s president and chief executive officer. “We’ve talked to guests, skiers and riders regionally and around the country and learned that the very caliber of this mountain may have kept some visitors away, and we are dedicated to creating an approachable and friendly experience for our guests of every ability level. This philosophy is present in every aspect of our mountain and base area improvement plans—and will remain a theme as we continue to change.”
YEAR ONE: Winter 2011-12 / $15 Million
