This Panhandling Pup Can Still Afford a (P)leather Jacket

Posted By on Wed, Jan 28, 2015 at 12:24 PM

San Francisco has long thought of itself as a fashion-forward city — even when its fashion choices are seemingly ass-backward

But because donning hipster hoodies and spiked collars isn't statement enough, we have taken to the curious act of outfitting our pets in trendy attire. The worst part in all this: Often times you'll witness a pooch who pulled off a jacket much better than you ever could.

1-Bedroom Sinkhole for Rent in Richmond District

Posted By on Thu, Dec 4, 2014 at 8:49 AM

A good sense of humor is worth a million bucks — or at least it's worth your next month's rent.

This Craigslister had fun with that sinkhole in the Richmond District yesterday, broadcasting it as the latest 1-bedroom up for rent  in San Francisco for $2,800. It's the perfect digs for someone who doesn't need much room to breathe and has hit rock bottom.

Per the ad:

Unless you're an "angry lesbian," an angry lesbian maybe isn't someone you want to spend the rest of your life with (or maybe you do). Having said that, if you hate your family, then an angry lesbian tends to make the perfect Thanksgiving date. 

So for those of you looking to stir up some family drama to go with your turkey and stuffing tomorrow, this "angry, hairy, man-hating lesbian" is offering her services: to grind her axe right there at the dinner table.

Police Use Puking Pumpkin to Warn Drivers About Drinking and Driving on Halloween

Posted By on Wed, Oct 29, 2014 at 10:06 AM

We really couldn't think of a better way to illustrate a life-altering hangover than this pumpkin puking out its insides. 

Cops are tweeting (and retweeting) images of these adorable, yet totally screwed pumpkins in attempt to convince all of you planning to party on Halloween not to drink your body weight in alcohol. More importantly, if you do drink too much, as in over the legal limit, don't drive.

A Very San Francisco Halloween: Building Occupants Want You to Show Them Your Pumpkins

Posted By on Tue, Oct 28, 2014 at 7:39 AM

  • Erin Sherbert

When it comes to Halloween-related attention-getters in San Francisco, this image above is definitely up there with those bitchy pumpkins in Bernal Heights (are they back this year?)

No, we didn't spot this communiqué in the Castro. It was seen scribbled on a building near the Financial District, where you don't tend to see people flashing their pumpkins ever.

SFPD Gets Local Reporter to Remove Blue Jacket and Put on Orange Sweatshirt While Reporting on the Giants

Posted By on Wed, Oct 22, 2014 at 11:51 AM

There's plenty of advantages to being a beat cop, we assume. One of which is exercising your authority over mundane things, like fashion. Apparently, when it comes to World Series allegiance, donning blue at a time like this —especially on television with San Francisco as your backdrop — is damn near criminal. 

At least that's what San Francisco police seem to think. 

KTVU reporter Tara Moriarty was busted sporting Kansas City blue while reporting on the SF Giants, and San Francisco police were not going to tolerate that level of unruliness.

Elderly Pirates Fan Wanders Into the Giants Dugout (VIDEO)

Posted By on Thu, Oct 2, 2014 at 8:01 AM


Not being much of a sports fan, we can safely conclude that for us, this was one of the more amazing moments in last night's Wild Card game between the Giants and the Pirates. This dear Pirates fan somehow ended up in the Giants dugout, bewildering not only the security at the game, but this morning's YouTube audience. 

According to SB Nation, the elderly fan seemed to have surprised herself when she ended up in the closely guarded dugout. Perhaps that's because she'd have had to do some "impressive climbing" to get back there. The cop's reaction is definitely a highlight:

Outside Lands: The Best Failed Attempt at Smuggling Booze

Posted By on Mon, Aug 11, 2014 at 8:29 AM

The Bread and butter of any good music festival - TWITTER/@DO415

Neighbors of Golden Gate Park are already up and complaining this morning about the stench of urine and trash left behind from Outside Lands attendees who shelled out a lot of cash to rock out all weekend long with no shame. 

Speaking of shame (or the lack thereof), it's a damn shame this booze-in-the-bread bootlegging attempt didn't work out for one festival goer dedicated to maintaining his buzz.

Dick Runner: Q&A with Claire Wyckoff, the San Francisco Woman Who Draws Dicks With Nike+

Posted By on Thu, Aug 7, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Why yes, that is a giant dick over Cole Valley; and it took runner, and San Francisco resident, Claire Wyckoff just a hair over 48 minutes to create. Using Nike+ to create art out of her runs, she's been posting the masterpieces to her blog: Running Drawing. Her works of running art include Space Invader, Slimer from Ghostbusters, and everyone's favorite: dicks. Her Instagram account says she's "just trying to save the world."

SF Weekly recently caught up with Wyckoff to discuss her process, aspirations and whether life dick-tates art, or art dick-tates life.   

How long have you been running?

I’ve been running off and on for the last 10 years. I run more when I feel fat. Less when I don’t feel fat. 

Why do you draw shapes when you run?

It just seemed funny. And I think there’s something great about using things for the opposite of what they were intended for. I don’t think Nike intended for dicks. That’s funny to me.
