Barfing in Dolores Park: Protesters to Stage Puke-In

So you think you can't stomach what happens at San Francisco's Dore Alley fair, but how about a massive puke fest in Dolores Park? Keep reading.

To show the city how they really feel about commercializing S.F. parks, a group of San Franciscans is planning a puke-in at Dolores Park this weekend. As the group notes on its Facebook page:  "Privatization makes me sick."

We assume once a few people start tossing their cookies, it won't take much effort to get more of them on the puke train -- the sight and smell of throw-up alone is enough to fuel a puke fete.

In addition to retching in the park, the group has started an online petition, Take Back Our Parks, opposing the Recreation and Parks Department's move to allow permits for food vendors in Dolores Park.

"I'm gonna puke!!!!! How do you get the attention of the people of SF? The neighbors of Dolores Park have no idea that the trailer issue is even back, so to get the word out and get people talking about it, we are gonna have a protest, sort of. We're all gonna puke in Dolores Park on Saturday the 23rd at 2:00. More details soon. Privatizing our parks makes me sick. How about you?"

  • 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.'"
