Complete with a fire truck…

and an open mike. (OMG, could this be Performance Art in the Panhandle?)

“I’ll be here all week,” he says. Hilarious.

Yes, of course, there were NIMBYs there. And yes, there were elements and/or known sympathisers of that horrible PRO-SF Panhandle Residents Organization Stanyan/Fulton (they’re On The Record as being against Performance Art – can you believe it?) in the house. But what can you do?

A good time was had by all.

See you next year!
