UC Berkeley’s Diversity Cupcake Sale 2011 is All Over – Comes Now Taiwanese NMA-TV With a Sensitive Portrayal

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

Or not:

“Affirmative action has always been a touchy subject in California, a state with many high achieving white and Asian students. In 1996, California residents passed Proposition 209, which prohibited public schools from considering race in the admissions process. After Proposition 209, the number of Asians in the elite UC college system surged. But now, a California legislator has put forward Bill SB 185, which would allow public universities to consider race. The Berkeley College Republicans fear the effects this bill might have on the UC system. They hosted a “diversity” bake sale to protest the possible effects of the law. Will the bill go through? Maybe – but some foresee it being vetoed next month.

Diana Ross to Make Her First San Francisco Appearance Since 1969

Eagerly Anticipated Return of One of America’s Most Enduring Music Legends

SAN FRANCISCO, July 21, 2011 – The City by the Bay is eagerly anticipating the triumphant return of one of the American music industry’s most enduring and beloved artists. Diana Rossis set to appear Friday, September 16, 2011 at 8 PM at the Golden Gate Theatre in downtown San Francisco. This will be the recording superstar’s first performance in San Francisco since 1969, when she performed with the Supremes at the Fairmont Hotel’s Venetian Room.

Diana Ross, her music and her voice are legendary. The concert, a full theatrical experience, will include breathtaking costumes and stage design, along with a live string and horn section. Ross has sold over 100 million records and recorded 18 number one hits. Her music became the sound of young America in the ’60s soon after she signed with Motown Records in 1961 with The Supremes. She embarked on her extraordinary solo career in 1970, and has not stopped since.

Diana Ross has had a profound influence on American popular culture and has become an icon in the entertainment industry. She is an Academy Award nominated actress for her unforgettable role as Billie Holiday in Lady Sings the Blues, a Tony and Golden Globe winner, a bestselling author, winner of 8 American Music Awards and a recipient of The Kennedy Center Honors.

SHN’s Golden Gate Theatre is one of the West Coast’s premier venues for live entertainment. Conveniently located in downtown San Francisco, the historic 1922 art deco theatre is a dramatic yet intimate setting. Located at 1 Taylor Street at Market Street & 6th, the Golden Gate Theatre is close to BART and MUNI.

Word From the Street: The Passion Cafe on 6th Street in the Mid-Market Will Remain Open Under the Same Ownership

Monday, July 18th, 2011

This has gone back and forth for a while, but today, the owner of the Passion Cafe has made a commitment to staying on 6th Street and operating business as usual with no plans to sell.

So this photo is now out-of-date:

Here it is, straight from the horse’s mouth:

“Thank you, all.

After the wonderful altruistic support we’ve had since and before the incident at Passion Cafe, we’ve decided against selling the restaurant.

Our initial goal was to create a change for the betterment of the residents in the Sixth Street corridor. After 35 years of building South of Market there had been one continuing desire and that was to bring change to Sixth Street which was festering throughout the SOMA neighborhood; as contractors, we took the most blighted building on the Street and we accomplished our goal and have encouraged many new businesses to use us as a model to bring their ideas to the Mid-Market, Sixth Street corridor.

No one could have predicted the economy, consequently we decided to operate Passion Cafe and we’ve had much success and have been lauded from State Senator Mark Leno and have received awards from City, State and Federal entities, too many to mention (except, thank you Supervisor Kim, S.F. Travel, CVE, Mayors Gavin Newsom and Ed Lee, Urban Solutions). The show of gratitude has been humbling.

It’s ironic that on the morning of the incident, I had come early to have someone hang a for sale sign early in the day as to be safe not to injure anyone below, if not for that I would never have been the recipient of a sad, deranged attacker. We had come to that decision feeling very proud of our accomplishment. We’ve survived, in large part, because of our supporters.

After a confusing period, I would like to put all speculation to rest and again, thank everyone for their continued support and encouragement. Passion Cafe will remain, amongst our new neighbors, from Burning Man to Twitter to the International Museum of American Art to all the other eateries we’ve encouraged to move to the new, vibrant Sixth Street and Mid-Market.

Please continue your patience, big things are on their way.”

NetFlix is Evil: Film Yard Video is Shutting Down After 14 Years of Business in the NoPA Part of the Western Addition

Or, maybe NetFlix isn’t evil.

No matter, highly-rated Film Yard Video will be gone by the end of the Summer of 2011 – the Tenderloin Geographic Society has the deets.

Uh, $9 for a DVD? Isn’t that a lot?

OMG, Today is Administrative Professionals Day (fka Secretary’s Day)! But It’s Not Too Late for Recchiuti Confections

I don’t know, I think this unofficial secular holiday has been losing steam over the years and decades, but can you really afford to ignore it altogether?

Mmmm.

Anyway, I’d advise against giving “trinkets,” under all circumstances:

“In the United States, the day is often celebrated by giving one’s assistant gifts such as flowers, candy, trinkets, lunch at a restaurant, or time off.”

All right, you’re on your own…

Yay, It’s the New “Atelier” (That Rhymes, BTW) from the Academy of Art University on New Montgomery

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

All right, first up:

An atelier is an artist’s studio or workroom.”

O.K. then.

Now, the news of the day is our Academy of Art University opening up some retail space 79 New Monty in the SoMA:

“We’re pleased to announce the opening of the Academy of Art University Atelier – a unique retail gallery space dedicated to showcasing the creative work of our students and alumni, where all profits will benefit the University’s Student Scholarship Fund.”

And best of all, it’s “ultra-curated,” baby. Per Carolyne Zinko and/or Cindy Ha, this new AAU joint:

“…showcases students’ work, including home decor, art, clothes for men, women and children, and jewelry. A few faculty and alumni, such as Gr.dano, are also included.”

Everybody on the scene is young, thin, and attractive so of course I fit right in. (And they looooove wearing black (lots and lots and lots of black), just like me!)

And everything you see here is on sale:

Bon courage, AoA Atelier!
