On July 6, two men were standing on the 1700 block of La Salle Street when Mendez allegedly fired multiple rounds, striking both victims in the chest and back. Police say 37-year-old Antonio Cortez died three hours later at a local hospital; the second victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital and survived.

    Secret Sidewalk plays the Legionnaire Saloon in Oakland this Sat/26. By Micah Dubreuil As a child, you imagine your toys come to life whenever your back is turned. As an adult in the Bay Area, you imagine that every night you choose to stay in, the bars are all packed with experimental underground DJs, food carts, live visual artists and the kind of freaky electronic jazz you would see in a Blade Runner spinoff series. And yet when you do turn around — at either age — your dreams often fall short (if your toys ever did come to life, please let us know).Read more »

Hamels pitched eight strong innings and Chase Utley had a tiebreaking RBI single in the fifth inning to lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 2-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday. Hamels (5-5) got the better of Tim Hudson in a matchup between starters who have combined for seven All-Star appearances.

  • Giants' mid-season report card

    15 Jul 2014 | 1:48 pm
    As a team limping into it, the all-star break couldn't have come quick enough for the Giants after their downward spiral that started in early June.Over the last several weeks, they've demoted their closer, lost their leadoff hitting center fielder and have gotten next to nothing offensively from the second base, shortstop, center field and left field positions over the last 4-6 weeks. That's 1/2 your lineup vastly underachieving so it's easy to see where the chunk of the Giants' downfall blame should lay. Hunter Pence has been about as steady as they come after a quiet week or two to start…
  • Giants counting days until All-Star break

    8 Jul 2014 | 10:13 pm
    For a club with the recent struggles the Giants have had and the way they're banged up and in need of a rest right now, the All-Star break cannot come soon enough.Last week, we discussed at length some of the issues with the pitching staff, both relief and in the rotation, but right now the team's offense looks tired and are in the midst of a prolonged slump. This offense went through the first 2 months of the season hitting for both power and average, making run-scoring pretty much a non-issue. It helped them get out to that huge lead in the West and to the best record in all of baseball.

    One Month ago today, pretty much everything was going in the Giants favor. They were the ones getting the big hit late in games and getting the excellent starting pitching which led to the best record in baseball and a comfortable led in the West.Fast forward four weeks, however, and all of the sudden they're neck and neck with the Dodgers for a stranglehold on the division with the All-Star break quickly approaching. It hasn't just been one area of the team that caused the 10-16 June and a 1-6 stretch over their last 7 games. The lineup has been struggling majorly as they try and endure some…
  • Pitching, untimely hitting has Giants in rut

    19 Jun 2014 | 11:13 pm
    Entering play about 10 days ago on June 9th, the Giants had the best record in baseball and sat nearly 20 games above .500. However, a 1-8 run since that date has dropped them back down to earth and has shrunk their lead on the 2nd place Dodgers to just 4 games. A big reason for the Giants rut has been because of some unstable pitching, from the top of the rotation through the back end of the bullpen. Tim Hudson had his worst outing as a Giant this week in Chicago vs. the White Sox, giving up 7 runs on 12 hits in just 4 1/3 innings. Matt Cain followed up Hudson's outing with his worst outing…

  • Seattle Had Its Spoon Man, But San Francisco Had Pigeon Man – Remembering Civic Center’s #1 Pigeon-Feeder of 2012

    TweetForget about superwellknown Spoon Man from two decades back. Just two years ago, San Francisco had its own icon – Pigeon Man. All the pigeons of Civic Center knew Pigeon Man was coming – they’d walk with him down Larkin, Pied Piper-style. See? Click to expand They used the crosswalk better than the average San Francisco pedestrian: Here was the reward, some kind of grain, like what the Road Runner used to peck at: Hurray!

    TweetI’ll tell you, Supervisor Scott Wiener, for one, lives in fear of running afoul of these people, the very same people who vandalize the “no dogs allowed” signs our Feds put up on certain parts of our Federal lands: Click to expand Our Feds wonder why Bay Aryans can’t abide the rules the rest of America accepts with no trouble at all… So look out, little Western Snow Plover. The dog pacs of the world say that you’re nothing special and that, in fact, you don’t even exist – they say there’s no such thing as a Western plover anything. OK…

    TweetYou know what’s poorly designed? Every last bike light paid for and given away by the SFMTA stamped with the SFMTA brand so that you’ll like that SFMTA more better. You know what’s well designed? These semi-counterfeit light sets from Amazon for $8 each free delivery: BV Bicycle Light Set, Super Bright 5 LED Headlight and 3 LED Taillight, Quick-Release Oh, they’re sold out now? Sorry.

  • The Unpopular SFMTA Used to Poll Neighbors Before Permanently Installing Traffic Circles, But Not Anymore – Why’s That?

    sfcitizen
    24 Jul 2014 | 6:28 am
    TweetI’ll tell you why. It’s because the SFMTA dramatically overestimated its popularity and the popularity of traffic circles being plopped down in the middle of intersections. Isn’t that pathetic? It held all these mini-elections and it lost every last one. So these days, there are no more mini-elections and the SFMTA is free to spin however it wants. Actually, this new one on Anza is more of a traffic oval: Here we go: “Traffic Circles Then & Now – In 2003, the SFMTA experimented with removing stop signs and  installing traffic circles at several…

    Written by Dee Dee Russell San Francisco, CaliforniaGreetings! In case you're wondering I've had this blog since 2007 and there are hundreds of post that I have hidden. Actually I think blogging is obsolete and will be pretty much over in 2016. There is so much social media out there and blogs are stagnate which is why I post very rarely here but mainly I do other things that I don't really advertise here. I may be ramping up in the days to come, who knows. All I know is White folks in San Francisco are acting up over this new round of gentrification, as though nobody ever got priced out of a…

  • Stark Insider TV: Andrew Ripp Live at Robert Mondavi Winery (Video)

    Loni Stark
    24 Jul 2014 | 9:14 am
    In this Stark Insider episode, singer-songwriter Andrew Ripp talks about discovering his voice (thanks to Mariah Carey no less), song-writing versus hit writing, and tapping into his creative side at 9am everyday, even when the words aren’t working. “Now when I get up on stage I’m really trying to show people a guy who has found hope.” Andrew Ripp has seen the ups and downs of the music industry. Four albums in to a career that is on a roll, he recalls dark, “party” days in L.A. “I became like a party animal. The drinking got kind of crazy. I spiraled…
  • Mighty Mojos tripping through history, powdered wigs and all

    I caught the very last day of American Dream Cabaret. While the DREAM will be decidedly past tense by the time you eyeball this on your [insert device name here], the show and its progenitor, Mojo Theatre, still merit discussion. Shows like this speak to ticket prices, audience expectations, and why we go to theatre at all. The local theatre ecology means that little theatre companies come and go like clouds scudding across a San Francisco sky. Such instability doesn’t necessarily correlate with the overall value; not only do such companies occasionally offer up some of the more vital and…
  • Not Just a Fish Story: Moby Dick – Rehearsed (Review)

    Cy Ashley Webb
    21 Jul 2014 | 10:00 am
    Moby Dick – Rehearsed is a curious play that gets produced far too seldom. One of Orson Well’s seeming cast-offs, it offers a play within a play within another play. Don’t be put off by this overworked device, however; the Stanford Summer Theatre (SST) may have changed its name to Stanford Repertory Theatre (SRT), but it continues a tradition of  gripping theatre under the thoughtful direction of Rush Rehm. Part of the critical success of SRT lies in casting. Moby Dick – Rehearsed includes a mix of professional players, students and recent grads. This current offering…
  • Hardly Child’s Play: ‘The Great Pretender’ at TheatreWorks (Review)

    Children’s TV host Mr. Felt (Steve Brady) greets his puppets in the World Premiere of THE GREAT PRETENDER at TheatreWorks, July 9 – August 3, 2014 at the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto. Some of the most satisfying moments in Bay Area theatre evolve out of TheatreWorks’ “New Works” festivals. These include David West Read’s comic drama The Great Pretender, which just opened at Palo Alto’s Lucie Stern Theatre – and The North Pool, which spoke to a city still soul searching in 2011. The Great Pretender will seem like home to those who remember a golden…
