The Chronicle says there’s a dilemma about what to do about Dolores Park. I didn’t realize there was a problem, but one dude explains:
“A few weeks ago, for example, somebody invited 100 people to party, and 300 to 400 showed up,” said Gideon Kramer, who has lived near the park for 30 years. “The problem is there are too many permitted events already, and basically an atmosphere of lax enforcement by the Recreation and Park Department lets people make the assumption that they can go over there and do whatever they want.”
Well yeah, don’t we all go to Dolores Park because we can do whatever we want? (And man, I wish I could throw a party for 100 and have 400 show up.) Anyway, the lax enforcement also extends — allegedly — to rules about nudity and excessive drinking, and the story says this makes some residents sad because it is “preventing them from bringing their children to the park.” Yeah right! I see hundreds of kids having grand old times in Dolores Park like every day.
Bevan Dufty is gonna see about sending more police patrols into the park, so I’m gonna run down there right now and get naked and drunk before they start ruining all the fun.
