Is It Hot Out Here? 

Wednesday, Sep 26 2007
Although the Comedy Day Web site never fails to worry us, with its animated clip art, banana-peel logo, and side-splitting tagline ("Comedy Day. Comedy Everyday." Hah!), the annual event is a safe bet. More than 500 comics have performed to more than 500,000 attendees since 1981, and the alumni list is rife with headliners: Dave Chappelle, Ellen DeGeneres, Robin Williams, Margaret Cho, and Janeane Garofalo have all sweated in the sun, trying to humor the locals. Expect a good dose of "Look! I'm a comic and I'm outside!" jokes, and probably some about Frisbee and dogs. But they're selling beer and wine, so it won't be a totally alien scene. Today's lineup leans on local talent, including Will Franken, Marga Gomez, Will and Debi Durst, Tom Ammiano, Doug Ferrari, Brian Copeland, Aundré the Wonderwoman, and many more. Music by the Stupeds kicks things off.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
