The Halloween Report

Greetings blog peepers,

Yes, I survived Halloween.

The place not to be last night was the Castro, where dressing as a cop or a news reporter was the costume of the night.

KIPP Spelling Bee

KIPP (the Knowledge Is Power Program) had 10 student finalists face off in its second annual spelling bee championship, which was hosted at the Gap offices by the KIPP Bay Area Trustees—Gap, Inc. cofounders Doris and Donald Fisher are trustees. Attendees included SF District Attorney Kamala Harris, Oakland A's VP/GM Billy Beane and SF 49er Vernon Davis.

Greetings chums,

There’s a buzz in the air this week. Could it be about Bee Movie? The Bee flick was directed, produced and written by Jerry Seinfeld—and he starred in the movie too.

Hump Day Halloween

Halloween happening midweek is always a bit confusing. When do you put on that costume? Do you party at the front or back end of the week?

Thankfully, tonight there’s still a lot to do, but in true San Francisco form, many of you have already been dressing up for a week now.

Last Saturday, I ventured to the Exotic Erotic Ball for the first time ever. I’d heard about it, and have always been a tad curious, so this year we showed up with a crew to film the night’s festivities.
