A few hours ago, in honor of us crazed Giants fans everywhere, our parking guru David La Bua, author of Finding the Sweet Spot, cooked up a different kind of true-or-false questionnaire asking Which Is More? between the beloved SF Giants and the much-loathed SF Parking world. What did you guys guess? Here are the answers!
It's no secret that parking in the city is a bitch. So we've enlisted local parking guru and author of Finding the Sweet Spot, David La Bua, to dish out weekly tips on navigating the ins and outs of city parking.
With Giants Fever lighting the whole city up, it’s time to play the new game sensation: Which is More?
1. The Number of SF Giants Managers and Coaches
The Number of SF DPT Parking Control Officer Managers and Supervisors?
2. SF Annual Parking Ticket Revenue
Normally this space is reserved for the latest features to arrive at the local indie theaters, but for one week, in the mischievous spirit of Halloween, we're going to mix it up. If you're looking for a good scare, you've come to the right place.

Enjoy.
Many of us are too young to have experienced the extreme counterculture of the 1960s, but we're all very familiar with one of its byproducts—Ken Kesey's groundbreaking novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. On the eve of the book's 35th anniversary, former Rolling Stone columnist Mark Christensen will bring the literary genius turned free-wheeling acid monger to life in a reading of his new biography Acid Christ.
Morgan Freeman knows this isn’t his defining role. Mention the five-time Oscar nominee – he won once, for his supporting turn in 2004’s Million Dollar Baby – and most people are reminded of the 1994 prison drama The Shawshank Redemption, or maybe Driving Miss Daisy (1989), the role that elevated him from respected character actor to household name.
Hot off the heels of the Friends of the SF Public Library's massive book sale in late September, our sister company Chronicle Books is staging a sprawling sale of titles this weekend to add to your growing collection of rainy day books. Score awesome deals on hundreds of books from their warehouse, all a staggering 65% off their normal price.
This scenario has happened to me and several other smart, cool, normal women I know. You date, cautiously at first. But the guy is all about it. He pushes to see you, says serious things. Then, out of the blue, he runs away. I know it’s his innate fear-of-commitment, must-spread-my-seed caveman crap, but how do I avoid it in the future? A girl can’t tread carefully forever.
