    It was a joke. And Ed Lee is trying to bring it back again. I’ll pass. Like the supervisor said in the article, why not spend all that money on improving roads and put it towards education.

    Yeah. I would have missed the whole thing if they didn’t come back like that. I actually think it could have made sense if it was planned better. The pavilion could have had a lot more events, etc. and made a ton of money.

    The last time something was posted on this topic that I caught on FB (I think it was mezmer), there seemed to be some very confused individuals out there who don’t work in the service industry and def are NOT small business owners so really have no clue what’s going on in the community. This absolutely had zero positive impact on most small businesses in SF (for the most part this is true). I don’t know why all these politicians stroke the wealthy like this…well, I do know why; but seems pretty obvious there is a better solution to bring more of a positive benefit to this city other than some “international recognition” that most of us don’t care about anyway. As for Ellison … Just another egotistical billionaire spending his F U money. Thanks for sharing Matt Seliga

    I agree Sam! As a major sponsor of the entire event, I wasn’t impressed. Over estimating the attendance was a big mistake.
