Notes and Photos by Janine Kahn

Sunday: Pistahan 2008

The weekend's Philippine festival was a godsend for those of us starved for a piece of the motherland - especially if that piece was lechon kawali (pan-roasted pork). Pictured: Pinoy shirts featuring hero Jose Rizal next to Adidas-turned-adobo.

Monday: Rats at Apple

The two-legged kind, according to these protesters from the Carpenters Union who spent most of Monday morning outside Apple's downtown location. "Community Alert: Apple Inc. has hired South Bay Construction and procured a lot of work from Apple as a Union Contractor. And now they have terminated their agreement with the Carpenters Union and turned their back on workers and the community! Shame on you!" read the neon green pamphlets they passed out.


Tuesday: The big top goes up

Circus Vargas is in town - right across the street from the SF Weekly office. Here's the big top's transformation from my window.

Wednesday: The mayor's office is now open

...for all your microwave lunching needs. Who knew?

Thursday: Sea creature dead on Market

Julio Vasconcellos shares this sad scene with us. Somehow this manta ray (or whatever ray our readers decided it was) ended up high and dry on Market Street. It's debatable whether the creature arrived at the scene dead or alive. Either way the image of such a beautiful creature baking in the concrete jungle tears at our heartstrings.

Friday: Bigfoot fakery

Does this look like legit Bigfoot evidence to you? Our Andy Wright took the train down to Palo Alto for a much-anticipated press conference and was disappointed. See more photos from the event here.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
