Well, there goes the neighborhood. If you weren't en route to the playa, and were still slummin' in SF this weekend, you may have wondered what the heck was going down on Divisadero. Haighteration gave this write-up about the Absolut Vodka commissioned street art project. So is Western Addition the next Williamsburg? What do you think? Does it qualify as neighborhood beautification? Or yet another sign of gentrification? What about the art itself? Does it inspire or repulse you? Another example of how corporations have "bought" San Francisco? I have mixed feelings. And apparently, just like Black Rock City, it's temporary. Store owners and residents will be able to decide if the art/eyesore is here to stay.
judy b. - a true renaissance woman - writer, actor, singer, cyclist, baker, producer and TOUR GUIDE. Her literary bike tour of San Francisco criss-crosses the city to some of the places where her short stories in her book, Stories For Airports, happen. Now is your chance to join her tour THIS SUNDAY. The tour starts at Huckleberry Bicycles on Market Street. Let me tell you, as someone who rides bikes with judy b. and has read her book, the two together all at once, it's like a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. She'll take you to places where you can see your future... Reminisce about family vacations... And see the world, or at least San Francisco, in ways you never imagined. Get Lit! This Sunday from 1 - 4 pm.
