Thanksgiving Shit Storm: Packing Them In At SFO

Posted By on Fri, Nov 16, 2007 at 12:02 PM


Today is the busiest day of the year at SFO, with 124,000 people expected to push, pull and drag their crabby, luggage-toting asses through its gates, and you can forget about hoping for that seat next to you to remain blessedly empty: airplanes will be running about 90 percent full.

Passengers are being advised to leave the cars at home and take public transportation instead. A note to gift-bearers: do not wrap them, because if "contents cannot be determined" they will be opened, and I'm guessing the last thing you want is to give something nice to the TSA, especially after waiting in security lines for (I'm laughing to myself as I quote the Chronicle here) "seven to nine minutes."

Have fun with that, travelers.

  • 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.'"
