Good Morning Mission

It is currently 7 a.m., 52° and headed to the mid-60s. It’s going to be partly cloudy this morning, with a slight chance of rain.

Today is Carnaval Day Two, and just like yesterday we plan to go out and bring you the most compelling moments in the form of photographs. The parade starts at 9:30 a.m. at 24th and Bryant streets.

That’s not the only celebration in the city; today is also the 75th birthday of the Golden Gate Bridge. Many people are expected to be there, and traffic agencies want them to take public transportation instead of driving.

Per the Chronicle:

“Driving is just not going to be an option” to travel to the bridge celebration, Mary Currie, spokeswoman for the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District, said Saturday. Or at least not a good option.

Instead, bridge celebrants are encouraged to take public transportation, walk or bike. No public parking will be available at or around the festival site or the bridge on Sunday.

Also from the Chronicle, we learn about some rumbling behind the scenes at the Department of Building Inspection:

Wild times have returned to the San Francisco Department of Building Inspection, with Director Vivian Day taking a week off because of stress.

Her reason: She says the mayor and head of the commission that oversees her agency are trying to force her out.

Have a good day, and if you stop by Carnaval, be sure to try the Elote Loco.
