Links of Interest For Friday, July 10th!
-First, this line of hipster-like apparel is kinda nice, particularly the Boeing-car themed ones, and the quality is a bit better than the run of the mill stuff you see online.
-Next, my friend Michael did this photoset of the Vulcan Stairway. This is one of those things I was ostensibly aware of , but never really thought to go see for myself until seeing this photoset. One of the things I've always liked about San Francisco are the many municipal stairways we have, something you don't always see elsewhere.
-All around Good Person Emily Drennen has a 3 part series in the Examiner that has a can-do, no-complaining attitude we could use more of in San Francisco. Regardless of whether you agree with her 100%, she at least makes a case thoughtfully, and without the political brickbats we often get when you say the b-word (bicycle).
-The SF Weekly blog has two litttle snippets of interest - first, a soon-to-be-retired MUNI shelter being used as a skateboard ramp (!) , and another contest, this time betting on when the Mayor will pull the rug out from under the naive "deal" struck by Budget Chair Sup. Avalos.
-The kind folks who run the SF Appeal have some BART related news - the ongoing struggle to get BART to finally accept TransLink cards as payment, and the latest on the acrimonious negotiations between labor and management at BART.
It's unclear if any unions will strike after all, but I sure wish both sides would dial down the posturing and war rhetoric, and get back to business. A strike would be a major pain in the collective ass of the Bay Area at a time when we really do not need it. Plus it would be really bad for our trivia team. So there!
That's all for now...have a great weekend and enjoy the many fun things to do on a summer weekend around town. And if you spot any particularly bad MUNI fail or win, feel free to twitter at me or email me over the weekend.
PS: We're always looking for Guest Bloggers to post on Wednesdays! This week's blogger had some work duties catch up with them so we missed one this week. Email me if you're interested and we'll get you on the schedule for July and August.
