Here’s What Tonight’s World Series Viewing Party Will Look Like – But No Alcohol in Civic Center – Vote No on Prop B

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

You’re invited to come to Civic Center tonight to see Game Four of the World Series on a makeshift “Jumbotron.”

See you at 5:07 PM (or earlier, to get a good spot if you want to be able to actually see the action unobstructed.)

It’ll look like this, but probably with more Matt Cain than Timothy Leroy Lincecum on the screen:

The SFPD requests (more or less) that you transfer your alcohol to unmarked containers, thusly:

And, oh yes, speaking of the Rec and Park, Remember to Vote No on Proposition B (November 2012), the so-called “Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond”

PS: The after party will be in the Mission District – spread the word, bring fireworks.

*Poor Sony. It appears that any television-like contraption bigger than 100 inches now gets the generic term “jumbotron.”

Oh well.

Displays similar to the Jumbotron include:

Stow Lake Boathouse Judgment Day is Finally Upon Us – Listen In at 2:00 PM as the “Historic Snack Bar” Gets Terminated

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

Terminated with extreme prejudice, that is.

I don’t know man, I’ve seen more than my fair share of NIMBY groups and hysterical societies in the 415 over the years, but the absurdly-named Save Stow Lake campaign is, without a doubt, the worst in recent history.

See the NIMBYs  go down in flames starting at 2:00 PM (at the earliest, tonight’s meeting could be a long one) at the SFGTV.

Recreation and Park Commission to Approve New Vendor at Stow Lake Boathouse December 2nd, or Soon Thereafter

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

Appears as if there’ll be some changes coming to Golden Gate Park’s Stow Lake Boathouse – our Board of Rec and Park will vote on the matter on December 2nd, 2010, anyway.

Check out the PowerPoint and the new lease if you want.

(The phrase “pink popcorn” is used three times, IIRC)
