I was going to put something snarky about making sure everyone gets to the First Friday Friends Social tonight RIGHT ON TIME! (Assuming you’re a member or have been invited by a member.) The Port food tonight is about a destination that powered the construction on our shipyards; it was also one of the major sources of the great migration westward, with our Donner Family involved (maybe THAT’s why we’re called Cannibal City!) San Francisco is the source of food which our Ward 2 Councilor Eigerman has intimate knowledge of; and it is absolutely incredible.
But then it hit me, the topic tonight is akin to lighting fireworks inside the building!
Tonight is about the exciting and sometimes sad story about the Central Waterfront that is still being played out even as I write. It’s about clashing visions between citizens, and the developers and politicians caught in between. (of which many are certainly not guiltless!) It’s an information session for those who want to know about the entire debate from inception to completion. (sometime in the distant future!)
BUT IT’S NOT A POLITICAL SESSION!
Do not use tonight as a platform to push your or your allies’ position. Do not grand stand. Do not use the question and answer period to be an embarassment to yourself and to the rest of us. Tonight is getting caught up on the facts and being informed and enjoying the great conversation (and food) at the Custom House Maritime Museum.
I hate to lay it out but both sides have many times behaved themselves in a crazy manner. Knowing the facts, I certainly won’t say NOT to be crazy.
Just not tonight.

Then came the Dream! No need for park grass in this plan!
