Local Hobos Snub Chris Daly's Bar

Posted By on Thu, Jan 27, 2011 at 3:08 PM

Yet another reason for Chris Daly to get it on like Donkey Kong: The fellows carrying on day and night outside his bar seem to be getting their drinks from somewhere other than Buck Tavern.

Videographer Photorikki posted this video showing two fellows who spend their days at a darkened part of Stevenson Street behind the 1655 Market St. bar. There, Photorikki writes: "They get drunk, get loud, and want to involve everyone in their drama."

About 45 seconds into the video, one of the

men carefully hides four, 24-ounce cans while a police cruiser

passes. We don't mind the sneaking -- although it does seem ironic in light of the "no lies told on city sidewalks" measure Daly proposed in April, which would have made it illegal to tell lies on city sidewalks. It was his irreverent way of opposing former mayor Gavin Newsom's measure to ban sitting and lying on city sidewalks.

But it seems pretty uncool to get hammered off store-bought alcohol when beer and liquor are available at a nearby bar owned by a dedicated public servant like Daly, who is also known for hosting office cocktail parties to raise money for the homeless.

Boys, it's time to give back.

Hey, wait a second: those aren't Buck Tavern drinks.

  • 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.'"
