Once again, you can't argue the San Francisco Police Department isn't offering drunken, antisocial motorists a sporting chance.

Only the most oblivious, besotted fools will fail to learn that on New Year's Eve, a sobriety checkpoint is planned for Eighth and Folsom between 8:30 and 3 a.m. Naturally, drunk driving is not encouraged. Especially in the vicinity of Eighth and Folsom.

During this year's Bay Area DUI crackdown, 54 suspected drunk drivers have been arrested -- 20 fewer than the 68 arrestees at this time last year.

  • 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.'"
