The ever-popular Sunday Streets program in San Francisco kicks off on Sunday, March 11 with the first in a series of car-free events across the city.
Just when you thought the political antics of the new year had settled, city politicos have gone ahead shaken things up again. They are trying to redraw supervisors’ districts. This means, for example, that if you live in a progressive stronghold like the Mission (Dictrict 9) and the district boundary was altered to include a more conservative neighborhood, then the chances of a more liberal supervisor getting elected from that region would be diminished. This scheme could profoundly change the city’s political climate.
With such great neighborhoods in SF it’s easy not to have to leave your ‘hood. For many residents, you can get groceries, grab a coffee, read a book and go to the gym all within blocks of where you live. This can also be applied to holiday shopping. Neighborhood businesses are encouraging residents to keep it local this year by hosting various block parties featuring discounted goods and services. Tonight Bernal Heights merchants and businesses hosts their first annual Holiday Evening Stroll from 6-9pm.
