Teeny Tiny Tree House Back by Popular Demand

Naturally, it was city bureaucracy that resulted in the sad and abrupt departure of the beloved teeny tiny tree house in Golden Gate Park.

According to ABC, it was the rigid folks over a the Recreation and Parks Department who removed the small door hinged to a tree in the park; city leaders claimed the miniature mouse pad had "damaged the tree."

But alas, Democracy rules -- and city leaders claim they will return the adorable door to appease the people of San Francisco.

Last month, the mysterious walnut-colored door appeared, drawing enough media attention to make it a potential tourist trap. Kids with wishes and parents with cameras would visit the tiny burrow, leaving notes and other tiny artifacts behind.

Then on Tuesday, the fairy tale world came to a screeching halt when the door -- and thus its occupant -- was uprooted for unknown reasons.

Now the city has interloped this fairy tale, which means there's going to be a lot of teeny tiny red tape for the city's smallest housing unit to get through.

  • 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.'"
