Target Protest August 14 or 15 -- or Both or Never?

Never mind the fact that this city doesn't even have a Target yet. San Franciscans are being called upon to head to their local store -- apparently Daly City or Colma -- to demonstrate against the chain's $150,000 donation to a political action committee that gave to a gay-hating Republican gubernatorial candidate in Minnesota.

Whether they need to protest against the nonexistent San Francisco Target on Aug. 14 or 15

is in serious question, so we've contacted those behind the Facebook

pages National Day of Protest Against Target (Aug. 14) and Target National Protest

Day (Aug. 15) to find out if maybe there's some mistake?

We'll keep you posted. And, hopefully, tell you where to go.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
