It’s just another Manic Monday so here are some local links to start off your week…
- The annual Great Heron watch at Stow Lake is coming up when these beautiful birds court, build nests, mate and lay eggs. Every Saturday from April 16 through May 21, SF Nature Education will host free spotting scopes and answer questions about the herons, and lead nature walks (10am-12:30pm; $10, children free). Follow the signs from the Stow Lake Boathouse to SF Nature’s observation site.
- Another candidate, David Lee, has thrown his hat into the ring for District 1 Supervisor. You may remember him from the 2012 election where he came in second with 38.5% of the vote.
- Former public school teacher Irving Rothstein will be at the Richmond Library on April 16 (3:30pm) to talk about his new book “It Couldn’t Have Been the Pay: A Life of Teaching and Learning in Public Schools”. Rothstein collects his stories from more than 30 years of teaching, mostly in San Francisco.
- Mark your calendar for the upcoming Dahlia Plant & Tuber Sale on April 16 at the Hall of Flowers in Golden Gate Park (9:30am-12noon). Proceeds benefit the Dahlia Society, who grow and maintain both the Dahlia Dell in Golden Gate Park and the Cabrillo Playground Dahlia Garden on 39th Ave. near Fulton.
- Hot Sauce and Panko, the favorite wings spot on Clement near 17th Avenue, finally opened its new location in Nob Hill at 1468 Hyde (formerly U-Lee). They’re open Wednesday through Saurday 11:30AM – 7PM and Sunday 11:30AM – 5PM. If you’re really jones’ing for their wings, Postmates can hook you up with a delivery. As you may recall, they had to close their Clement spot because the building is due for demolition.
- Spoke Easy bicycle shop is now open at 1901 Clement at 20th Avenue. Stop in for tune-ups, new bikes and gear.
