SF Chihuahuas Still Await Departure To NYC

​Apparently, bad weather in the northeast has delayed San Francisco's orphaned Chihuahuas from flying out this morning to New York City where apparently, the ankle biters are in high, high demand.

The dogs, who have overpopulated San Francisco's animal shelter, were scheduled to depart SFO in high-style, walking across a red carpet and boarding a Virgin American flight with doggie treats and plenty of toys. Volunteers would escort the dogs and track their journey across the country in real-time via WiFi.

Last chance to adopt the pups before they leave?

  • 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.'"
