Memorial Day weekend is here, as is the Mission's Carnaval, and so are the sobriety checkpoints to make sure you don't drive after knocking back one too many Coronas.

This weekend of enhanced enforcement in the city starts Friday with a sobriety checkpoint on the Embarcadero at Washington. It begins at 8:30 p.m. and will continue into the wee hours of Saturday morning. 

Last Memorial Day weekend, the DUI crackdown snagged 26 drunkards --  and police will be out in force again this year, even after Friday night. 

Captain Al Casciato, commander of the San Francisco Police Department's traffic company, says Health Department statistics show that 25 percent of all injuries and deaths in San Francisco are tracable to car crashes

So don't become a stat (there is an app for that), and don't end up with a DUI. But still ... have fun.

And be safe!

  • 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.'"
