It’s Friday, which means it’s time for a round up of the juicy bits and pieces.
First up: We’ve posted about the water park that used to inhabit the ‘hood before, but we found some more awesome photos at FoundSF. You should check it out, it’s a great mini-history with some rad old photos.
Next: Looking for work? The Booksmith is hiring for a backlist reorderer and accounting guru. Bookstore experience a must. Email resume & references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Someone was stabbed on Muni in the Haight on Monday. The details are still a bit vague, but SF Gate reports that the stabber hopped off at Haight and Central, and they’re still trying to track him down.
Heads up: Santa’s coming to Cole Valley on Sunday, November 25th for Cole Valley Improvement Association’s Sidewalk Cleaning Fundraiser. Sit with Santa for $20 to benefit the sidewalk cleaning program. 11a.m. – 5p.m. More details here.
Finally: Ted Loewenberg, president of the Haight Ashbury Improvement Association (HAIA), along with two other opponents to the proposed bike lanes on Fell & Oak Streets, filed an appeal to delay construction on the project, claiming that it “discriminates against the disabled,” since the bike lane would displace some curbside parking (even though none of the space are designated as spaces for drivers with disabled placards), and should require additional review by the California Environmental Quality Act. Regardless, the city plans to go ahead with the project. In fact, they should begin striping the bike lanes today.
Have a nice, calm weekend folks. You’ve earned it.
