Paddling 101 

Wednesday, Aug 31 2011
Kayakers are like surfers. They get started, and the next thing you know, other parts of their lives begin to fall by the wayside. They try to get you to go with them. And no finer kayak evangelist exists than Ted Choi of City Kayak; he has introduced many, many paddlers to the joys of the nighttime city skyline seen from the water on a full moon, among other vista beauties. But what about the upside-down thing? Do you automatically have to go upside down underwater if you get in the boat? Find the answer to this and other dumb questions at Choi's Downtown San Francisco Kayak Trip, which is suitable for inexperienced and/or clumsy mariners, although you should be able to do five push-ups. The one-hour course teaches the basics on a calm little inlet. If you ever want to see that night moon skyline, this is a perfect place to start.
Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays-Sundays, 11:30 a.m.; Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays-Sundays. Starts: April 12. Continues through Dec. 23, 2009

  • 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.'"
