Of Course 

Wednesday, Jun 20 2007
Given the general awesomeness of miniature golf courses, it comes as no surprise that an art group finally got around to making one. But Wowhaus, the husband-and-wife team of Scott Constable and Ene Osteraas, didn't construct theirs without an eye toward the kids — and anybody who prefers a surreal nine holes to the real thing. As the latest in the series of Patricia Green's temporary public art projects, the Hayes Valley Historic Miniature Golf Extravaganza is playable, albeit with Wiffle balls and handmade wooden putters. Traveling the course is like spinning through history, with holes featuring historic chapters in the life of the valley. Play through recreations of the original sand dunes, Hayes Pavilion, the craptastic Central Freeway, a giant tooth representing director Eric von Stroheim's 1924 masterpiece Greed, and the San Francisco Zen Center, which appropriately has "no hole — no goal."

Tee times start today at 1 p.m. (and on alternating Saturdays through September 15).
June 23-Sept. 15

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
