Weekend Fun: Sunday Streets II: Electric Boogaloo and LaPlaya Fixit Party!

SundayStreets.jpgThere’s quite a lot going on this Labor Day Weekend. If you haven’t heard by now (and I can’t imagine anyone hasn’t at this point) the Bay Bridge will be closed all weekend, so if you’re planning to go to the East Bay, you’ve been warned. There are alternate routes, and BART will be running extra hours to accommodate people.
Also, on Saturday morning, neighbors at the end of the N Judah line have been organizing to give the area a nice upgrade of all the medians and such. You can read about their plans at their website, and they’re having a work party, sponsored by Java Beach, from 9:30-12:30. Block by block, the Inner and Outer Sunset is becoming an even nicer place to live than it already is. That’s great, and the volunteers who put in the time to do these things deserve some thanks.
On Sunday, we have the last Sunday Streets of the year. Now, apparently some people think Ocean Beach is hell and gone from “civilization” but I thought the last one they did was a lot of fun, and hey! you can walk all the way from the California Academy of Sciences to the SF Zoo, if you so desired.
A few other notes: The San Francisco County Transit Authority (SFCTA) is accepting applications for people to join its Citizen Advisory Committee. If you’re at all interested in how the Prop. K sales tax money is spent, or what the SFCTA is doing, this is a great opportunity to get involved.
And finally, a shout out for my friends at the Blackthorn: they now have their own WiFi signal, free of charge! Just a casual glance around the neighborhood indicates that every block in the Irving/9th area ha some sort of free WiFi signal now. Rather impressive!
I’ll update this list as I hear of more things going on around town. Have a great weekend!
