Sunday Streets Great Highway & Golden Gate Park a Huge Success for 2011 – Dogs, Dancing, Davids, Dudes and Dune Rolling

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

Sunday Streets Great Highway 2011 II on July 10 worked out all right, with generally sunny skies in the east and generally cloudy skies in the west.

Although some, like The Tender found today’s event in the West Bay sad:

Sunday Streets at Golden Gate Park & the Great Highway was a bit sad – foggy, windy, not many people… Also: http://t.co/aCWQhit

Didn’t seem like a whole bunch of people this go around, but oh well.

Dog #1:

Dog #2:

Dancing – Lindy in the Park:

David #1, Chiu to be precise – he’s running for Mayor or something. (D.C. won the Mayoral race today, Sundays Streetswise. Saw some people from the Dennis Herrera and John Avalos campaigns as well.) That’s famous Public Bikes Founder Dan Nguyen-Tan‘s famous orange Funcycle in there – it seats seven:

David #2, Onek to be precise – he’s running for District Attorney or something:

Dude #1, It’s Mark Lukach (plus Dog #3) repping the always-reliable Ocean Beach Bulletin. OBB in the Hizzy:

And Dude #2, piloting the Famous 415 Quadricycle:

Dune Rolling:

AT&T sent its youngest employees to hand out shopping bags. They were gathering pro-utility box petitions for U-Verse / LightSpeed, I think:

But life went on in the West Bay regardless. So the Beach Chalet was serving a full house:

And the surfers were surfing. “00:43:17 Look at that. Breaks both ways. Watch. Watch. 00:43:20 Look! Good six-foot swells!”

And the Segwayers were Segwaying:

Hurray!

Sir Paul McCartney to Play AT&T Park on July 10, 2010! Tickets on Sale May 24th

Thursday, May 20th, 2010
 
Up and Coming Paul McCartney just can’t stay away from our sports stadia, right? A mere 15,971 days after playing the ‘Stick, he’s back to play the ‘Booth.
 
From Barbara Koh’s About.com comes the exciting news:
 
Paul McCartney has announced two new performance dates, the first at San Francisco’s very own AT&T Park on Saturday July 10th, and then at the Rio Tinto stadium in Salt Lake City on Tuesday July 13th, as part of his ‘Up and Coming’ 2010 tour. Keeping with his headline-making special concerts over the last few years, the tour will see the iconic star and his band play unique venues, places and locations; new cities he’s never played and familiar markets he’s not visited for a while.”
 
Get that? He’s not visited “for a while.” I”ll check you on that, good buddy.
 
 
(Did you know he was also in a band _before_ Wings?)
 
See you there!
 
“The July 10th concert date at AT&T Park will be Paul’s first performance within the City of San Francisco since The Beatles’ last concert tour appearance – at Candlestick Park on August 29, 1966.
