The Bizarre Valentines Day Christmas Trees of Lombard Street

Friday, February 12th, 2010

Look at this huge Christmas Tree taking up all the space at a bar on Lombard Street’s Motel Row. 

It’s been covered over with Valentine’s day-related tchochkes, gewgaws, knickknacks, baubles, and lagniappes.

See? (Customers’ and employees’ faces darkened out of respect.)

Happy Valentines!

Huge Turnout at San Francisco’s Newest Job Center – Is There One in Your Area?

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

Why, yes. Yes there is, and it’s specifically designed to lift people out of poverty. Wouldn’t you, or your friends, or your relatives like to work for Safeway, Andronico’s Markets, Novartis, AT&T, IKEA, UPS, Federal Express, Kaiser Permanente, Bio-Rad Laboratories, or Comcast? What’s that – you don’t need a Rubicon Programs, Inc. one-stop job center ’cause you have all the stuff it offers at home? Maybe, but you should check it out just the same when you can. (See info below.)

And that’s what people were doing today in the Western A. Hundreds were on hand in the wet weather to witness San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, District 5 Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, and Mistress of Ceromonies Barbara Rodgers (“I wasn’t fired [from CBS5 last year], I quit!“) kick off the new center.
