First Lady Michelle Obama is headed to San Francisco this weekend where she hopes to squeeze plenty of cash from members of the 1 percent so that her husband can secure reelection and help the 99 percent.

The First Lady will swing through the city on Friday night for a fundraiser at the California Academy of Sciences, where it will cost you at least $500 to get in the door. Or if you have tons of money to throw around, you can get your photo taken with her for $5,000.

A "co-host family" who is willing to pay $35,800 will get to join a

private reception with Obama, and will receive a family

photo with the First Lady. What's more, they will also will have a family photo

taken with President Barack Obama when he makes another visit to the

Bay Area, whenever that is.

But Obama isn't just here for money. According to news reports, she is also making a stop in Alameda, where she will take part in a ceremony for the Coast Guard Cutter Stratton, placing it in active duty for

homeland security and national defense.

After that, she will travel down to Los Angeles, where, by the way, there are far fewer sugar daddies to pamper Democrats.

  • 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.'"
