Whither Slim’s Nightclub? OMG, It’s the Entertainment Commission’s “San Francisco Neighborhood Summit” on April 6

And you know who else will be there? Numerous members of the San Francisco Entertainment Commish, plus that dude what’s from the SFPD Alcohol Liaison Unit, plus a Sound Technician, plus NAYYYYYYbor “Advocates.”

So let’s see here, we’re going to have The City, the SFPD, a sound guy, and officially-designated NIMBYs all meeting South of Market just a few weeks after the Slim’s Nightclub / Jeanmarie Guenot / Other NIMBYs* L’affaire Du 2011.

Refurbished Harvey Milk Center for Recreational Arts Open for Business

Sunday, June 21st, 2009

The Harvey Milk Recreational Arts Building at 50 Scott Street in Duboce Park had quite the grand opening kickoff yesterday morning. Read all about it at Linda Post’s SF FYI.NET.

“City Parks general manager Jared Blumenfeld thought the late supervisor Harvey Milk would be very proud of the voter-approved two-year project. ‘It’s got recording studios, it’s got darkrooms. Just beautiful, light spaces, community rooms,’ Blumenfeld said. ‘It’s really architecturally stunning.'”

The American Dream starts with the neighborhoods” – as recorded by Laura Spanjian, Assistant General Manager for External Affairs for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC)
