Your walk through Civic Center just got more interesting. Beyond the Jun Kaneko heads outside the War Memorial building and the 24-foot red lotus outside the Asian Art Museum is the new window display "Air & Space Museum," which transforms the storefront space at 155 Grove into a botanical garden of sorts. Local artist Randy Colosky (who's been all over SF of late, with shows at Gallery Hijinks, Museum of Craft and Folk Art, and Incline Gallery) has built a synthetic growing station that will yield an array of plants over the course of the exhibition. Now that's a work in progress.

Dear Parking Guru,
I just received a ticket on Howard between Steuart and The Embarcadero on the South side of the street (the ballpark side). It was for 7.2.25 Red Zone and the fine is $98. There used to be meters here and they suddenly took them away. I was just assuming that they were changing the meters to the new, hungrier meters and that I happened to catch a free day. Much to my chagrin, that was not the case. I cannot figure out why it was for a red zone. How do I contest this and have half a chance at winning? Will they just say, "We're right, you're wrong, pay the money, MUNI needs a new pair of shoes"?
Keep Up the Good Work,

The cult-loved Japanese clothing chain, Uniqlo, just made their much anticipated West Coast debut -- a bit early and via pop-up.
Yesterday, they opened doors to the Uniqlo Pop Up Experience (117 Post, at Kearny), a tech-inspired teaser shop, generating hype for the opening of their Powell St. flagship store later this fall.
Yesterday the San Francisco Film Society broke some incredibly exciting news, announcing that indie bigwig Ted Hope would be stepping up to the plate as the new executive director of the San Francisco Film Society.
Let me offer this analogy for those to whom the impact of this isn't immediately apparent (or who don't spend as much time scrutinizing film credits as I do):
Outside Lands is back this year with a wicked lineup of some great DJs. If you're headed out to Golden Gate Park this weekend, just remember to keep your ears peeled for these seven heavy hitters behind the decks.
