News & Booze Friday Edition: Will We Allow Smoking on the Suicide Barrier?

Posted By on Fri, Sep 12, 2008 at 1:12 PM

Chris Daly's attempt to further ban smoking may be gasping for air because - hey - we've already banned smoking everyplace we could do it easily.

Also, he didn't say "pretty please." He never does.

But a mayoral panel did say the suicide barriers proposed for the Golden Gate Bridge aren't pretty enough. Is that outrageous or accurate?

How about this: if you want to kill yourself in this city, you're allowed to go on the Golden Gate Bridge and smoke. Will that satisfy everyone?

Joe Eskenazi and Melissa Griffin are in the studio drinking with the microphones on.

(All that, plus a very special message from the Gavin Newsom for Governor Campaign.) --Benjamin Wachs

  • 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.'"
