Sisters Doing it for Themselves: Trying to Remember Bay to Breakers Before the NIMBYs’ Ban on Nudity

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

[UPDATE: Here’s the other shot of these two in action.]

You kids might be too young to remember, but the annual Bay to Breakers footrace used to run wild on the streets.

As here, from back in The Aughts.

At this point, race-leader Caroline Rotich (#2) must have been thinking how different things are here compared with Kenya:

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

OMG, the 2011 Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Truck West Coast Tour is here in the bay area through the end of July, 2011!

Just check the sked right here to see where they’ll turn up next.

And best of all, if you Tweet them or Poke them, maybe they’ll show up at your office or whatever with some tasty free B&J.

Check it – these “happy gals” from Edelman Digital San Francisco (and some more over here at the San Francisco Bay Guardian) have already beaten you to the punch:

(In Soviet Russia, [You know, I’m going to have to issue a recall on my lame Yakov Smirnoff reference. What I want to say is something like, “In Soviet Russia, ice cream eats YOU.” But that doesn’t make sense. You know, I just haven’t heard enough of his material. Apologies.])

Hurray!

Bay to Breakers 100: All You Need to Know – How They Lie About Alcohol Every Year – New Booze Store Map

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

Comes now Sam Singer, who gets paid to spread the Party Line about the historic Bay to Breakers Street Party and Fun Run coming up this Sunday:

Bay to Breakers goes dry with new no-alcohol rules”

Now, wasn’t alcohol banned the year before and the year before and the year before? Yep.

So, the new rules aren’t new at all, are they?

So, in 2010, alcohol was banned. In 2009, alcohol was banned. In 2008, alcohol was banned….

And yet:

Has anybody ever been arrested at a BtoB for alcohol possession? I don’t know, maybe some mouthy minors have. What I’ve seen myself is the SFPD taking away people’s alcohol or making them pour it out. Oh well.

Leave us not forget the “tipping points,” the years when things went too far in the opinion of the white, aging, home-owning, Prop 8-supporting millionaires and billionaires who get upset every year.

So, in 2008, 2007 was the “tipping point.”

In 2009, 2008 was the tipping point.

In 2010, 2009 was the tipping point.

And in 2011:

Last year was the tipping point,” said David Perry, who was hired by the city to help publicize the new rules. “Last year was such a mess that organizers, the city and (police) decided we had to change something.”

And you know, for all the talk, there are years where nobody gets arrested at one of the biggest street parties left in the 415.

All right, here’s the new likka sto map from Exercising While Intoxicated:

Now the homeowner’s associations of the Western Addition are pressuring area stores to not open on Sunday morning, to not sell alcohol. The people at the stores where I’ve visited think that’s a laughable idea. (Anyway, I’ll check and see how effective our local Taliban’s anti-alcohol campaign is come Sunday.)

All right, get the latest updates here, at the People for the Preservation of Bay2Breakers.

See you Sunday!

Bay to Breakers Organizers Admit Past Mismanagement By Doubling Port-a-Potties for 2011 – Be a “Potty Hero”

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

Now, I don’t recommend registering for the annual Bay to Breakers Fun Run and Street Party, cause what you’re pretty much doing is putting money into the pockets of a Colorado billionaire, who, in turn, puts money into the pockets of the anti-gay Yes on Prop 8 campaign.

But that’s how you roll, that’s fine.

But hey, look what they have for you this year – the Zazzle people sponsoring the 100th anniversary are going to monitor you during the race to see how much of your urine gets into a port-a-potty. And if you do well enough, then you’re going to get a garish, lime-green wristband. Hurray!

See?

And, if you’re a straight, millionaire, white, wizened homeowner who moved into the Western Addition thinking it was something else (like Hayes Valley or “NoPA”), well urine luck. Look at this, free neon-pink lawn signs, you know, for your front lawn, the one you mow every Saturday morning along with all your neighbors.*

See how garish and San Mateo County there are? Hurray!

Here’s the email for the signs, but I’ll tell you, the nail that stands up gets hammered down and the duck that quacks gets shot, or something. Anyway, freepottysign@zazzle.com.

All right, enjoy your street party on Sunday!

*Uh, the Western Addition is loaded with bossy old white people these days, sure, but front lawns? Not so much. Perhaps you should visit sometime, Zazzle, when you take a break from making things that nobody needs…

ZOMG, It’s ZOMG From Zazzle, That Crappy T-Shirt Company – Bay to Breakers is Represented by a Classy Lady

Boy, she just screams San Francisco, huh?

Oh, wait a second, Zazzle is from the Peninsula, right? OK, fine.

Free Truffles Tomorrow at All Godiva Chocolatier Boutiques! OMG OMG OMG!

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

Brace yourselves – it’s Truffle Month at Godiva. That means that tomorrow, November 19th, 2009, they’re giving away truffles starting at 5:00 PM at malls everywhere.

Of course, it’s just one per person, while supplies last, yadayadayada. San Francisco (and Emeryville) locales are listed below – find any boutique in the U.S. right here.    

Check it. Speaking of OMG, note the golden “GOD Chocolat” part of the ad. Does Godiva know what they did there? Hell to the yes they know what they did there. Why they made the ad that way shall remain a mystery:

Now, they might try to slip you a truffle with sea salt on it, but all you have to say is, “Sea salt belongs in the ocean, not on my truffle. Give me a different one.” There you go.

To conclude, OMG, OMG, OMG - free truffles!
