Peskin and The Gang— here, Supervisor Alioto-Pier— have thrown a cog in the wheel of Gavin's Sunday Streets event during which 4.6 miles' worth of pavement through Bayview and along the Embarcadero will be cordoned off in an effort to
get everyone off their lazy asses encourage San Franciscans to meet-and-greet while strolling/ biking/ Segway scootering along the promenade. If the Supes have their way, however, Sunday Streets will be subjected to the Board's whims before it even gets off the ground— and we all know how bureaucracy rolls around these parts. Business folk at Pier 39 and Fisherman's Wharf have damage with the plan— in this town, it's not a real event unless someone has beef, after all— even though Gavin's jumping through hoops, having already scaled the 4-hour event back from three to two Sundays in August.
