Arizmendi Parklet Looks Like a Sure Thing

ARIZMENDI BAKERY
  • Arizmendi Bakery

The Inner Sunset's Arizmendi Bakery appears to be on its way to getting a parklet all its own. Yesterday's public hearing before two officials in the Department of Public Works saw some 15 neighborhood residents (out of about 20 in attendance) speaking out for the sliver of public green space, and four speaking against, says parklet advocate Adam Greenfield. Next step, Greenfield says, is for DPW to get the Fire Department to sign off on the plans, and then the agency will make a final decision. Greenfield, who's on the board of Inner Sunset Park Neighbors, helped conduct a petition drive in favor. "If a thousand signatures and 36 businesses aren't enough, I'd be very surprised," Greenfield says. Though the mini park will be a public commons, Arizmendi has pledged to serve as host.

  • 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.'"
