“Debris in SF Bay may impact arrival times”

So says an email update from Golden Gate Ferry this morning. Here’s the rest:

With the recent winter storms and rainy weather, there is an unprecedented amount of debris floating in the San Francisco Bay. Maneuvering around this debris may cause some Golden Gate Ferry arrivals to be delayed, especially during the early morning and late evening commute trips when visibility is decreased due to darkness.

We will do our best to keep trips on time, but the safety of our passengers is paramount. We regret any inconvenience.

Wowee. Now go enjoy yourself a possibly slightly delayed budget yachting adventure quick before the government relaxes even more environmental regulations and the San Francisco Bay turns into a giant debris-filled tar pit!

Doc’s HELLO

Thanks to the excellent news that they’ve found a new spot to relocate to just a block or so away, we can once again enjoy a silly joke about Doc’s Clock, and sad poems about it are no longer necessary.

Kinda-secret, kinda-tiki bar temporarily in the Mission

unspecified

Don’t wanna show or tell too much because the mystery part is a big part of the fun, but the drinks were epic and the food was great too.

The place is called Flip Flop for now, but it’ll be different in a couple months. It’s part of a larger concept called Over Proof, and to find it you gotta go into ABV and up a staircase in the back, and to get in you need to have a reservation.

Twins pins!

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 2.02.07 PM

PSA Press debuts yet another entry in their long list of enamel pins celebrating San Francisco’s history! Here’s what they have to say about the Twins:

Marian and Vivian Brown were American identical twins and celebrity icons of San Francisco for more than 40 years. Known as the San Francisco Twins, they were renowned for their appearance in media with adorning signature identically bright snappy outfits and hats atop meticulously coiffed hair. We seek to honor them as they are one of the reasons we fell in love with San Francisco when we moved here over 10 years ago.

Fun Facts about the Brown sisters:

1. When asked if they ever wore pants, Marian said, “I have never owned a pair, I never intend to buy a pair even if they were made of silk!” 2. The twins’ favorite meal was a small combination pizza from Uncle Vito’s served at 4:30 in the afternoon.

3.The twins always wore fake fur. “They call it faux fur but I call it fake. F.A.K.E!” said Marian in one interview.

Vivian passed away on January 9, 2013 at age 85
Marian passed away on November 20, 2014 at age 87

It’s two separate pins sold as a set, so you can have one for you and one for your twin (or bestie). Gettem here.

‘Unusual’ and possibly illegal Immigration and Customs Enforcement activity in the Mission

Governor Brown says California won’t stand for this kind of thing. But we’ll see what happens.

The Examiner reports:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents may have sought to detain an undocumented immigrant on Thursday morning at a building that houses a preschool in San Francisco, the San Francisco Examiner has learned.

The action, which sources familiar with immigration called “unusual,” comes only a day after President Donald Trump signed two executive orders that — among other actions — called for 10,000 new ICE agents to perform deportations across the country.

[...]

Visiting a preschool and other sites containing children is prohibited for ICE officers under a 2011 Department of Homeland Security “sensitive locations” memorandum, save for exceptional circumstances.

“They had batons, they had walkie talkies, they had police belts and vests on top of their black uniforms. I didn’t notice if they had guns,” said Jaime Aragon, services coordination manager at Good Samaritan.

Biographical Info:

"I joked that living in the Mission would be the end of me. And there were nights where it felt like the case.

One night I went out with my friend Allan to the bar that no one goes to on 16th Street, where I lost half my drink and money on the dance floor. Later we skated down 16th to Evelyn Lee, where I fell off my board and landed on my head as the 22 bus sped past behind me. A sobering moment. At the bar, I sulked and nursed my wounds until Allan put on Amy Winehouse’s 'Valerie.' We danced, he dipped me, and I felt better."
