Purported District Six Supervisor Jane Kim is holding a meeting about crime tomorrow at the Luggage Store in Mid-Market. That’s the news of the day from Live SOMA, your South of Market Blog.

(Is there actually “Increased Violence in South of Market” these days? I don’t know.)

Anyway, here are the deets:

Gavin Newsom Calls for More Giant Glittering Sidewalk Eggs: “Market Street Should Have 100 of These Damn Things”

Friday, December 10th, 2010

San Francisco’s most productive journalist these days has got to be Steve Rhodes – the man is out there in the field reporting on things All The Time.

As it was last night, when S.R. was on hand to catch Mayor Gavin Newsom encountering the debut of The ARTery Project,” which is:

“An exciting series of art events, fairs, installations and performances taking place along Market Street between UN Plaza and 6th Street.”

O.K. then.

And let’s let Steve tell us what Gavin was saying last night:

Market st should have 100 of these damn things. I can say that now that I only have 30 days.”

A few minutes later shaking a man’s hand: “It is good to see art out here”

There’s still more to do.

O.K. then.

I think I missed all that fuss, passing by a little while later. (You could tell something arty was going on just by the number of art student-types milling about the Mid Market.)

All the deets, below.
