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.
