Oh No, Now Even Our San Francisco Zoo is Working Blue – “The Scoop on Poop” Opens January 25th 2014

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

Taking a cue from our naughty, naughty PUC, your San Francisco Zoo has a new exhibition called The Scoop on Poop.

I’m appalled.

But your kids will love it.

And afterwards, check out the brand-new ELINOR FRIEND PLAYGROUND.

All right, see you there!

All the deets:

The Scoop on Poop! Opening Day

Special Members-Only Preview: January 25, 9:00 – 10:00 am
Open to Public: January 25, 10:00 am in the Pachyderm Building

Poop. Doo-doo. Dung. Number 2. No matter what you call it, you’ll be able to learn all about it at The Scoop on Poop, our latest special exhibition on view in the Pachyderm Building. Based on a popular children’s book by the same name by Dr. Wayne Lynch, The Scoop on Poop leads visitors on an investigation of what poop is and how animals and humans use it.

Animals use poop to build homes, hide from enemies, attract mates, send messages, and cool off – some even eat it! Veterinarians, farmers, naturalists, paleontologists, Maasai tribesmen, and power companies use it, too. Poop is a scientific puzzle, and with a little detective work, you can learn a lot about an animal by what it leaves behind.

Ever more deets, after the jump

Monday, March 1st, 2010

Our California Attorney General Jerry Brown can’t abide you smokers out there thinkingorganic” cigarettes from American Spirit are better for you than other cigarettes. So he just cut a deal with the Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company affacting how these ciggies will get marketed in California. Deets below.

Anyway, an appealing package, IMO:

Brown Secures Agreement with American Spirit Cigarettes Maker over Misleading Marketing of Organic Tobacco Products

Los Angeles-Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr. today announced that his office has secured an agreement with Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company, Inc., the manufacturer of American Spirit tobacco products, that requires the company to clearly disclose that its organic tobacco is “no safer or healthier” than other tobacco products.

Attorneys general from 32 other states and the District of Columbia signed onto today’s agreement.

Stamping an organic label on tobacco products is ultimately a distinction without a difference-organic or not, cigarettes are bad for your health,” Brown said. “Today’s settlement with Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company ensures that all future advertisements make it clear that organic tobacco is no safer or healthier.”

Jerry Brown, automático para la gente:

World Series Mayhem – Ace’s Bar is a Little Bit of Noo Yawk in San Francisco’s Tenderloin

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

This was the scene last night on Sutter and Hyde in San Francisco’s Tenderloin (aka Tender Nob, aka “Theatre”) District last night just after the New York Yankees won the World Series. With all the boisterousness, passersby could tell that some kind of mayhem was afoot even from a block away.

And then when the crowd started belting out New York, New York,” well, you started to suspect that Yelp-rated Ace’s Bar just might have a New York theme.

Welcome to the Bronx Zoo” juxtaposed with “Quiet Please - Click to expand:

Owners Scott and Barbi beseech you to “Get your ass to Ace’s

“With inexpensive prices and the cleanest bathrooms in the city, Aces brings the unique vibe of NY to the laid back streets of San Francisco.”

So, when you pine for Fair Gotham, Get Your Ass to Ace’s post-haste.

It’ll soon become your little piece of 10001 in the 94109.
