You can't say the San Francisco Police Department isn't giving drunken motorists a sporting chance. In announcing today's kickoff of a "17-day crackdown" on drunk drivers, it reveals exactly where the weekend's checkpoints will be.

The SFPD and other local police agencies are hoping to "arrest nearly 100 drivers" between today and Jan. 2. It will likely be 100 people who don't read the following:

On Saturday, officers will be manning a checkpoint at Embarcadero and Washington Streets betwen 8:30 p.m. and 3 a.m. On Sunday, you'd be foolish to swerve a car around Lombard and Divisadero Streets at the same hours.

Should you do so, you'll have lots to explain to members of the SFPD, U.S. Park Police, California Highway Patrol, San Francisco State University Police, and San Francisco Community College Police.

  • 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.'"
