This week is INSANE in the SF bay area, especially San Francisco!  Check out all of the things that bring us to the busiest, craziest week ever!

  • To start off this week, we entered it on Sunday with a blue moon and the start of a heat wave.
  • Columbus day.
  • Americas cup races in the bay.
  • Fleet week
  • 2 Giants playoff games,
  • 1 49er game.
  • Oracle’s anual “company party” which this year is a private Pearl Jam concert on Treasure Island.
  • Hardly strictly bluegrass festival.
  • Castro street fair.
  • Italian heritage parade in N. Beach.
  • Military exercise on Ocean Beach and Lake Merced.
  • Cloud conference at Moscone Center.
  • Florence & the Machine concert at Shorline Amphitheater.
  • Kevin Hart at the Oracle Arena.
  • New Order at the Fox Theater.
  • Cal vs. UCLA at Cal.
  • Justin Bieber at the Oracle Arena.
  • Joe Jackson at Masonic Hall.
  • Lenard Skynyrd at Mountain Winery.

and…

  • Madonna at HP Pavilion.
  • Oh yeah… cant forget the grand west coast opening of UNIQLO in Union Square.

I think that is enough to make anyone who has to get to any of these things to think twice about getting into that auto and driving.  Sheesh.  it makes me nervous having to leave the house to go to the store!  It is just crazy!  And… once again… It is thanks to our dear shitty Mayor Ed Lee making his backroom deals.  He clearly didnt have his filofax with him at this planning meeting!

It will be anything but dull that is one thing i think anyone can count on!

  1. Man I’d love to see Pearl Jam… 🙂

    I’m not really sure that I know what Fleet Week is, although I’ve heard it spoken of in the past. Has it got anything to do with sailing?!

  2. I left for work at 7am this morning – there was a line around the block at UNIQLO. I got home at 5pm this morning – there was a line around the block at UNIQLO. Really?

  3. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who was conducting a little research on this. And he actually ordered me breakfast simply because I discovered it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this issue here on your web page.

    • I am so glad to hear that my little blog actually manifested itself into a meal for someone!! That is a cool bonus win for all of us i think! I could not believe what our mayor and sups. had lined up on that week. It was so clearly the “perk week” that the mayor (horrible Ed Lee) had set up for all of his big businesses that he just drew here to make their home base (Zynga, Twitter, AirBnB etc). Our mayor is a huge fan of offering exclusive perks as bonus incentives to any business that (if he can recruit) is willing to pour their cash into (his pockets) the city. He did so much recruiting for SF that he single handedly created our horrific housing crisis. He brought in 40,000 new employees to live and work here in a city thats normal population (of full time residents not including those that commute into the city) of 100,000. That is almost another 1/2 of the current population at the time. And… Surprise!… There are not enough places for all of these new residents to live in! So unfortunately, it is the old, multi generational neighbors that are slowly being forced out. I mean come on… I just saw a listing for a crappy no amenities studio in the TENDERLOIN asking $1750.00 a month!!! That is truly insane. And this week it was all made visible what the perks of bringing all of these businesses and commerce in. It was interesting too on a side note. They must have brought in the blue angels 3 days early (they always came on wed. and left on mon.) because there were SO MANY military planes free flying over the city skies on the night of the blue moon (the SUNDAY before the wed. they were usually to come.).

      Nothing like city planning (with open pockets) gone wrong!

      I am glad i could be of help to you with my little observations. If i didnt live it and write it down, i dont know if i would have believed it when it happened. It was so crazy that week in SF!
