New Warriors Arena to be Slightly Lower, Assuming It Gets Built in the First Place – Artist’s ConceptionTuesday, November 12th, 2013
So, unlike the disastrous America’s Cup and 8 Washington campaigns, the Golden State Warriors project is based around stuff that San Franciscans can actually benefit from.
So that’s a good sign.
Remember, the more you complain now, the better this deal gets for San Francisco. You the public are the bad cop and genial SFGov figurehead Ed Lee is the good cop. And of course the good cop won’t be able to get the best deal possible for San Francisco without the bad cop.
If Ed Lee doesn’t like this game, then he can just retire, right? Or go back to his old job the way he promised to in the first place, right?
It’s too bad that Oakland will lose its team.
Hurray! The Memphis Minnie’s “Big Pig” Van is Back on the Road, After Being “Destroyed” in a Giants Victory Riot on HaightTuesday, May 21st, 2013
Remember when our San Francisco Giants won the World Series the time before last?
It was back in 2010. Good times. I celebrated by climbing on top of the Memphis Minnie’s Barbeque Joint And Smokehouse Ford van parked on the street in the Lower Haight.
There I was, looking fierce bouncing up and down in my little black dress and orange pumps, along with bunch of other people.* We few, we Band of Brothers, we Baseball Furies.
Anyway, as the above link to Haighteration shows, the Big Pig, she got messed up.
But here she is back on the road in 2013, wavy roof panels and all:

I don’t know, I think this ride is worth more than it would have been without the battle scars from aught-ten.
I think this rig is now a historic artifact worthy of preservation.
Keep on keeping on, Memphis Minnie’s.
*Oh, not really. Actually, after watching on a friend’s big screen (’cause I don’t I have cable ’cause I want the Comcast monopoly to die die die) I had to ride my bike on up to Pac Heights. The city was electric, all over, not just in the Mission and in the Haights.
Well the announcement is officially coming this AM, but Messrs. Matier und Ross already have the skivvy on the brand-new, slightly-more-NIMBY-friendly proposal.
And, here, check the latest illustrations.
From the former proposal, a silvery looming UFO with kayak access…
…to the new proposal, a slightly lower silvery looming UFO without kayak access:
So Warriors, take that 13% rate down to 3% and then you might have something, you might have a privately-financed stadium deal.
Now let’s review our waterfront proposals.
The America’s Cup deal was poorly-negotiated on purpose so we could pay for Larry Ellison’s ego trip. It’s an ongoing travesty.
And 8 Washington is corruption.
But this here arena proposal seems OK fine to me, more or less.
I’ll now invite the rich, property-owning NIMBYs of SoMA to move to Fairfield, where 15% of the houses are in foreclosure.
