National Play Doh Day: San Francisco Landmarks

Posted By on Tue, Sep 16, 2014 at 7:25 AM

It may have been awhile since you popped open a cylinder tube of Play Doh and rolled it into various shapes and pretended to eat it (okay, maybe you took a bite). It had definitely been awhile since anyone in the SF Weekly office had constructed a Play Doh masterpiece, so after we discovered that today is National Play Doh Day we decided to buy a few cans and roll out some San Francisco landmarks.

Behold our artistic endevours:

Why yes that is the Fisherman's Wharf sign.

Pretty much Laffing Sal's doppelgänger.

We didn't establish size parameters before starting, so here's our teeny-tiny Coit Tower, Transamerica Building, and Golden Gate Bridge. (Fun fact: The vertical column-like structures on each side of the Transamerica Building are the elevator shafts.)

And while it's apparent we're not trained in the art of sculpture, we've saved our particularly sad one for last: Alcatraz from above.

Happy Play Doh day!

  • 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.'"
