San Francisco

Tonight! Care about Your Government for Once

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


I know that voting can seem like a hassle and that keeping up with the news is god-damned depressing. But the San Francisco mayoral election is coming up (November 8 of this year, to be exact), so it’s important for you to start paying attention if you don’t want our city to be taken over by Happy Meal-banning, gay marriage-hating weirdos. Oh, wait, that already happened? Well, I guess you can try to prevent terrible events in the future by learning about your potential mayors tonight for FREE!

Because this is very important, I’m giving you a friendly reminder that there is a mayoral candidate forum tonight at the Castro Theatre, where you can hear political discussion from the likes of State Sen. Leland Yee, former supervisor Bevan Dufty, Board of Supervisors President David Chiu, and City Attorney Dennis Herrera. Will it be boring? Probably. Will it better equip you to exercise your voting rights this fall? I sure hope so.

Mayoral Candidate Forum at the Castro Theatre
429 Castro St. at 17th [The Castro]
Monday, August 8, 7-9:30pm

Sarah M. Smart - Red-Light Special

Sarah M. Smart was summoned into being on a distant ice cream planet
through an unholy union of Two-Buck Chuck and unicorns. They sent her to Indianapolis and then the University of Missouri's School of Journalism
to spread peace and big hair. Perpetually in mourning for the comma, she
has worked for a variety of print media, including Indianapolis
, Global Journalist, and Vox. Since moving
to San Francisco for the booming dumpster-diving scene, she has been an
online operative for such fine folks as , Neo-Factory, and
Academy of Art University. After a day of cat-feeding, hat-making,
dog-walking, vegan baking, and daydreaming about marrying rich, all she
wants is a margarita as big as her face.
