It’s 7 a.m., 46° and headed to only 66°. Details for the next 10 days are here.

SFist has posted a round up of the “Looking” reviews concluding:

Looking, has been declared both a quiet triumph and a bore. Among the adjectives frequently employed on both sides of the debate, “unremarkable,” “boring,” and “tame.” But as Vanity Fair‘s Richard Lawson rightly observes, “Looking not only has to bear the heavy burden of having to be a consistently engaging show on its own merits, but is also laden with the rather impossible demand that it be correctly and ecumenically representative of the Gay Experience entirely.” Which, of course, it’s never going to be.

Now, first, the positive reviews:

The LA Times gave it a rave, calling it “charming and significant” and saying, “HBO’s ‘Girls’ will have to shove over and cede some of the Frank New Voice limelight to ‘Looking.'” Read More Here.

Moving “Girls” over should be easy enough. Does anyone else find it soporific?

SF Weekly reports that San Francisco is doing well in just saying no to nicotine. 

Serena Chen, regional advocacy director for the American Lung Association, says that out of the 10 most populous cities in the state, Oakland and San Francisco are the only cities with a “B” ranking. The remaining cities held “C’s””D’s” or “F’s”.  Read more here. 

And if tech companies are worried about a backlash at City Hall, they can stop now. The city approved continued tax breaks for “five companies including Twitter” located in the mid-Market area. There is more here at SF Gate. 


9:30 a.m. Assessment Appeals Board. Room 406 City Hall. Here are the properties to be discussed.

10:30 a.m. Government oversight and audit committee. What sounds interesting here is a hearing on the Budget and Legislative Analyst’s Performance Audit of the Fire Department.

1 p.m. City Hall Chambers. Neighborhood Services and Safety Committee. Supervisor David Campos will hold a hearing on the proposed Jail Replacement Project.

1:30 p.m. Another Assessment Appeals Board meeting in Room 406, with the properties to be discussed listed here.  You do have to wonder how so many properties could be eligible for being assessed at a lower value when real estate prices keep going up.


Noon Paxton Gate Story Hour for kids.

4 p.m.  The Mission Community Market returns to 22nd Street near Bartlett.

6:30 p.m. Ruth’s Table Benefit at the Roxie Theater.

9 p.m. Poetry Slam at 16th BART Plaza.  For those new to the neighborhood, this might be an interesting experience. Here’s a video we did in 2010.

Here is a full listing of bar events from SF Weekly. 

And here is a list of today’s AA Meetings. 

Enjoy the day!
