Even the Richmond is toasty with this better-late-than-never summer weather we’re having. To commemorate it, that’s a photo of one of the Golden Gate Park Concourse fountains, which are once again running. Finally.
Speaking of water, commenters have lots to say about the SFPUC’s proposed Westside Recycled Water Project which calls for the construction of a new treatment plant in Golden Gate Park and installation of underground distribution pipes in the Richmond District and Presidio. There’s a public meeting next week – get up to speed and join in the discussion.
Campy movie lovers won’t want to miss tonight’s only showing of “SUCK” at the 4-Star Theater. It’s a rock-n-roll vampire comedy starring Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop and a bevy of other actors and rockers.
If you’re in town this weekend and tend toward the creative, you should check out Zine Fest in Golden Gate Park. It’s all those people who like to self-publish, kind of like literary scrapbookers. Cool people are welcome too.
For those who are more inclined to big guns, get a tour of the 50-ton “disappearing” cannon at Baker Beach’s Battery Chamberlin on Saturday. Guaranteed kid fun.
On the history tip, don’t miss some new (old) photos of Sutro Baths which are spectacular. Or check out this vintage 1909 map of San Francisco and the Bay Area. I think you’ll be surprised by the names and places on it.
Have a great holiday weekend everyone!
