Anchor Brewery Announcement Leads to Delightful Day-Drinking

Had Anchor Brewery's proposed waterfront extravaganza been extant in the days of Otis Redding, sitting on the dock of the bay could have been a less melancholy experience.

Yesterday's big development announcement was made during a dreary gray morning. But, even on a clean, crisp Northern California winter's day -- like today -- things can always get better. You could be enjoying a beer during the daylight hours and wandering through this city's environs in a slightly altered state.

That appeared to be the happy plight of a number of our fair city's political movers and shakers yesterday, per the above delightful photo snapped by Chris Roberts. Among others, that would be Supervisors Jane Kim and Carmen Chu alongside Mayor Ed Lee and Giants' CEO Larry Baer.

We've put in calls to Kim, Lee's spokeswoman, and Chu -- whose two-handed approach to beer-drinking is fascinating. Lee never struck us as a tippler; when he dropped in on Chris Daly's bar two years back, he sipped on a Clausthaler.

Yesterday's Anchor, however, seemed to agree with Lee.

More on this pressing matter when we know more.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
