It’s 7 a.m., 54° and headed to 73°. Details for the next 10 days are here.

District 9 Supervisor David Campos is asking for volunteers — from optometrists to lawyers – for the first Project Homeless Connect event in San Francisco focused on the LGBT community. He posted the following message on Facebook yesterday: “This one-day, multiple services event on October 7th is an opportunity for low-income and homeless LGBT-identified folks to access a huge variety of services, from dental care and housing support to pet grooming and foot massages. LGBT folks make up twenty nine percent of homeless people in the city, so the need is great.” Learn more or sign up at www.ProjectHomelessConnect.com.

Yesterday, we reported that HBO was filming a new show called “Looking” at Doc’s Clock. By the way, they’re casting, according to Mission Mission. And Uptown Almanac reports that “Looking” isn’t the only show in the works. Amazon is producing “Betas,” a show about app developers in the neighborhood.

Speaking of apps, Berkeleyside published an interesting article about startups leaving San Francisco for the East Bay. Does anyone have a sense that startups are fleeing the city?
