Local Bird Refuses to Quit Smoking

Posted By on Thu, Aug 30, 2012 at 11:39 AM

So you think you've seen it all in San Francisco, but you really haven't seen anything until you've witnessed a local bird smoke a cigarette.

As you can see here, that nicotine patch isn't helping this local blue scrub jay kick his tobacco habit. A Bernal Heights neighbor snapped this photo shortly after the bird flew on his deck, "beaked up a cigarette" from the ashtray and flew to the rail to chillax while he had a smoke.


We can't really blame him. Where else is a bird to go in this city to have a smoke without Supervisor Eric Mar on his ass?

  • 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.'"
