But IRL, Halloween in the Marina District actually looks like more like this.

A Raucous Halloween Night in the Marina – Sidewalk Brawl Looks Like a Scene from a Judd Apatow Film

Friday, November 5th, 2010

Uptown Almanac’s Kevin Montgomery rightly points to a Marina Moment in front of Mayor Gavin Newsom’s former Balboa Cafe from Halloween Eve 2010.

It’s at 2300 views so far…

“Who’s got a camera? Let’s YouTube this shit!”

Young Isabella Steals the Show at Assessor-Recorder Phil Ting’s Birthday Party

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

This was the scene the other day at the Eastside West gastropub, 3154 Fillmore where San Francisco Assessor-Recorder and City Bright Phil Ting celebrated his birthday.

But Phil’s daughter Isabella ended up being the center of attention:

In San Francisco, They Have Parking Meters Everywhere

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

Well check it out – a fully functional official City and County of San Francisco parking meter on a platform at the Greenwich steps. It’s not hard to get to, just follow those hunting for the huge home-made sculpture of Tatiana the Tiger.

(Did you know that Tatiana the Siberian Tiger has the highest rating of anything on Yelp?  It’s little wonder why the attorneys for the “charmless” Dhaliwal Brothers Paul and Kulbir (aka “the boys” or “the kids” despite the fact that they are adults) don’t want to have San Franciscans determining how big a payday (cha-ching!) they merit from the Christmas tragedy of 2007. What the Dhaliwals’ Yelp ratings would be like…)

Oh well, back to the whimsy:

Find the tiger sculpture then look downhill.

What a strange little street.

San Franciscans Flock to the Shrine of Tatiana the Killer Tiger

Saturday, December 27th, 2008

Not too many made it to the recent unveiling of the Tatiana sculpture on Christmas Day, but now people are making pilgrimages to the site of the community garden at 274 Greenwich on the famous Greenwich Steps. Per sculptor Jon Engdhal:

“It was one year ago today that Tatiana died so senselessly, a scale statue is in place to remember her.”

This is a peaceful place, free of the vitriol that surrounds the Carlos Sousa Jr., Paul Dhaliwal, and Kulbir Dhaliwal case from a year ago

You’ll find this Siberian tiger cub right next to the parking meter

Looking down from Tati’s perch. This is about 75 feet down the hill from the old Julius’ Castle restaurant on Montgomery:

The view from the path:

This thing seems larger than life – it’s probably quite heavy.

Enjoy it while it lasts. She might not be there a long time.
