Oh, and parents, please “expect a five percent tuition increase per year,” ’cause, you know, what’s another ten thou, right? C’mon, that’s chicken feed!
These aren’t real ads, not yet. But they show you how the SFFC is thinking:
(BTW, what the SFFC calls a “job” is what I’d call a gig, some of which are offered at less than minimum wage, just like the America’s Cup)
All film commissions are bad.
How is the SFFC better than any of the rest?
How is the SFFC better than SF’s recent hosting of the disastrous America’s Cup?
BTW, NBC’s Trauma medical drama was a big piece of shit, you know, frankly. Now people might say that I shouldn’t say that, but I don’t think they’d contradict me. Yes, the Trauma people spent some money and some people benefited, but there’s no reason why they should be treated any different than any other group of visitors coming to town. Anyway, Trauma sucked, big-time, despite what the SFFC people said about it. And part of the reason why it was cancelled had to do with how damn expensive it was to film on the Streets of San Francisco. So, what I’m saying is that maybe the whole concept of filming Trauma on location in SF was a bad idea – I’m certainly not saying we should have subsidized its production even more than we did.
And if Hollywood says it doesn’t want to come here to film, that’s O.K. Some productions, the ones that make sense, will come anyway.
Anywho, look for one of these feel-good banner ads to appear on your screens soon…
Insert “sliver” building here, right in the middle, just to the left of Geary:
1481 Post is like 8 Washington, and yet not like 8 Washington…
Take a close look at this motorcyclist’s helmet on Geary – in between the two tall buildings, you can see the coming construction site of 1481 Post.
Dude gives off a Hank Schrader vibe:
Some people who opposed the 8 Washington Wall on the Waterfront project just might support a tall spire on the top of Cathedral Heights, right?
I think so.
Anyway, all moto helmets should be chromed, huh?
Well, here it is, the proposed 1481 Post Street, from the ADCO Group.
And here’s your welcome:
“Welcome to 1481 Post Street: An Iconic Residence Reflecting Years of Neighborhood Input and an Innovative Approach to Urban Growth.”
And here’s one possible future for Geary and Gough, as “seen” from our Chinese Consulate on Laguna:

And here comes the backlash, here’s the concomitant anti-1481 Post Street group, SOS Cathedral Hill, or SAVE CATHEDRAL HILL, or something like that.
That’s what you call a dramaturgical dyad, redolent of 8 Washington, IMO.
BTW, this group is claiming “No Community Outreach,” but what they really mean is no community outreach this month or no community outreach right now.
If anybody has a non-maudlin argument or anecdote or something against this building, I’d like to hear it. ‘Cause, so far, I haven’t heard it yet.
It seems to me that 1481 Post would slot right in with all the others in this part of the Western Addition, in this part of town betwixt the Tenderloin and J-Town…
Here it is, the San Francisco Dungeon up at 145 Jefferson St. between Mason and Taylor in Fisherman’s Wharf – it’s the newest and spookiest addition to Fisherman’s Wharf. Check it out. It’s opening Thursday, June 26th, 2014.
And that makes it the ninth Merlin Entertainments Dungeon in the world. The roster: Berlin Dungeon, Hamburg Dungeon, Amsterdam Dungeon, the Blackpool Tower Dungeon, the Edinburgh Dungeon, the London Dungeon, the York Dungeon, Warwick Castle and now San Francisco.
Beth Spotswood of SFGate says she “screamed bloody murder.”
And here’s San Francisco Bay Guardian skeptic / Harvard-boy David Kurlander’s bit. He dropped by last week and wrote a lot about the dungeon. He says, “…the Dungeon transcends a lot of the more toxic elements that drag down other Jeffersonian locales.” I guess that’s a compliment.
And here are the Yelp reviews.
I’m thinking that if you’re part of a fun group and you’re in the mood to have good time, then the SF Dungeon just might be for you.
Here are some scenes:
Colonel Jack Gamble welcomes victims (guests) to the San Francisco Dungeon in San Francisco, California
Nikko, of Shanghai Kelly’s Boat Ride, claims his victims (guests) in the San Francisco Dungeon in San Francisco, California
Underground boat ride? Mmmm… Maybe I’ll make it up there someday. (It seems a lot more appealing than any wax museum, just saying.)
All the deets, after the jump.
See you there!
I don’t know when this UC “campus” got built, but just look at what was in fashion back in the day:
Huge empty lawns and huge empty driveways that never get used. What were they thinking? Were these lawns a “gift” to the people of San Francisco? Were they something we wanted or appreciated paying for? IDK.
I could see this place out in the country where there’s plenty of space, but I don’t know what it’s doing in SF.
Anyway, we’ll be enjoying this campus as we walk, ride, and drive by for the next half-decade, it looks like.
And then, who knows.
You know, I’m pretty, I’m popular, so I thought I’d be a cinch to join this new outfit and take over the joint. But then I read the fine print and It’s all, “up and coming,” and “professional,” and “young,” and I’m like WTF?
I guess this group’s not for me.
But you, well, you’ll fit right in:
“The Chamber will soon be launching SF Up, a new networking group for up and coming young professionals and we want your input! Are you a young professional under 40? Join us Thurs Feb 20, 5:30 – 7 pm, for a focus group and tell us what you’d like to see in our new program. Admission is free, but per-registration is required.”
