3rd-Mar-2009 09:05 am - Betrayed at the Aurora Theatre!
Ladies & Gentleman!
Come check out a show at the Aurora Theatre in Downtown Berkeley--it's the last week of our extended hit show Betrayed by George Packer!

Some more information from our website:

Following a successful run in New York, Betrayed is a theatrical adaptation of journalist George Packer’s (author of The Assassin’s Gate: America in Iraq) eye-opening essay in New Yorker magazine. A Sunni and Shi’a Muslim build a rare bond as they face with humor, dignity, and outrage the daily dangers of working for the Americans in Iraq. Joined by a woman who refuses to submit to Islamic law, the men struggle to be heard by their allies while all three fight to realize their dreams and hopes for a new world.

Filled with drama and urgency, Betrayed is, according to Theatremania, “that rare theater experience that commands absolute attention while watching it, and which continues to haunt the viewer long after the play ends.”

show length: 1 hour 45 minutes

5th-Feb-2009 10:48 am - bus/BART info & other.
laughing


Hi, all,

I'm actually posting for a friend who just moved to SF to go to art school but is currently staying with a friend in Oakland and may be finding an apt there instead of SF.  That means she has to take an oakland bus, then the BART, then a SF bus.  A number of places we've lived before the local public transports let you buy a monthly pass, but I don't see that on 511.org.  Is it possible to buy a monthly pass for any of those three?  If so, where should I/she go?

Since this comm doesn't look like it's super active, I'm wondering also if anyone has a suggestion of a more active comm we might be able to post (as annoying as that may be)?  I see one I think just called sanfrancisco that looks similar to the damnportlanders one I'm on here in Portland.

Thanks!

23rd-Aug-2008 01:02 pm - Newbie Cell Phone questions.
calvin
Hi! I'm a Canadian and I'm living here temporarily (3 to 6 months, probably) on a work contract. I'm currently staying in Santa Clara because its close to where I'm working.

I'm slowly working things out with respect to living here, but my next big hurdle is to get a Cell phone. Since I don't know how long I'll be here, I don't want to get a contract. I also already HAVE a perfectly good cell phone, so I'd hate to have to buy another one, but my old one is locked to my cell phone company in Canada (Fido). Had I been thinking, I'd have got it unlocked before I came, but it never occurred to me.

So, I need to
  1. get myself some sort of pay-as-you-go plan with a carrier that covers Santa Clara and San Jose (at least); and
  2. either find myself a really cheap unlocked phone, or find someone who can unlock mine.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
13th-Aug-2008 09:41 am - Camping?
pickles - fucked up
Are there any really campground-savvy people here who would let me know about some campgrounds anywhere in the Bay Area which might be available this Friday through Sunday night? So far everything I'm finding seems to be booked up, and it's kind of important to find something soon... Any suggestions are very much appreciated =D

12th-Aug-2008 04:35 pm - Gang of cool people needed!

Hey, I am Eva; I’m 25 years old and live in the Piedmont/Grand Lake area. I have quadriplegic cerebral palsy, which means I cannot walk, speak, or use my hands. I use a wheelchair to get around and communicate what I want to say by spelling out on a letterboard. This might seem daunting at first, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes really easy. I need full time assistance to facilitate me living my life.

As my aide, you will assist me in daily life activities such as dressing, showering, communicating, eating, note-taking, driving, etc. (but no heavy cleaning - you will not be my maid). Also, my aides help me do stuff I want to do, like having coffee with friends, and just chilling at home. I’ll be starting grad school at The Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in October. I also do a moderate amount of GLBTQ activism, so you’ll probably assist me with that too (see www.queersonwheels.com).    

Right now I have one weekend shift open, and I also want to build a very solid backup crew to call on if someone doesn't show up or in the event of an emergency  Obviously I would have more than one backup person, so you would not feel obligated to drop everything and come.  The requirements for the job are the strength to do regular lifting (to lift me, but I'm pretty small. and can help), a driver’s license and decent record (you’ll sometimes be driving my van), a moderately interesting personality, and a moderate interest in hanging out with a 25 year-old dyke with a wacky sense of humor. It would be great if you had an interest in human sexuality too, since those are mostly the courses I will be taking. I don’t mean you have to know everything or even have taken classes in the field; just I don’t want you to be bored in class with me. You should like dogs as well since I may be volunteering at a shelter and I plan on adopting a dog in the very near future. This is not so much a “caretaking” job as a “hang out and help me” kind of job. We have to have some sort of interesting connection otherwise we’ll both be bored and I’m not cool with that. No experience required because I will train you, and all people welcome queer and straight. Currently I have these positions open:

-Part Time (Weekends 8-4 Sunday)

-Back-up (whenever)

The job would start as soon as possible. The pay is between 11 and 13 dollars per hour and will be facilitated through ICR (Inclusive Community Resources), the agency that will be providing my aides; however, you will be working through them for me.

If you are interested, email me about yourself and a resume at evasaidead@yahoo.com

Thanks!

normal, curly!
I'm new to the city so of course I'm confused...Is it possible to get from Van Ness/The Civic Center to Larkspur using public transit? If so, how? Help please, it's for employment.

19th-Mar-2008 09:42 pm - Apartment rental / Roommates
pickles - fucked up
Assuming some people are still watching this community, and assuming some of you were in the not-so-distant past also new around SF...What would be the best day to look in the paper for apartment rentals and/or roommates? Most papers seem to have a prime day for that kind of thing. And of course I'll be checking craigslist as well, but no harm doing things the old fashioned way sometimes too.
23rd-Oct-2007 08:35 pm - Rental Help!
Hello!

I recently moved to the east bay (Oakland) with my boyfriend. We currently live with my sister, but are hoping to move to find a place just for the two of us. I have hunted for apartments in other towns, but the strategy was different. I am not sure how we should go about our search.

We both would like to be close to a BART station, because we do not drive. We have a cat and would love some kind of outdoor area (yard, balcony, rooftop access). We kind of want a two bedroom or a large one bedroom (it feels like there are too many studios out there that are far too small for two people and a cat).

When do we start looking? Any recommendations? (buildings, neighborhoods or companies.) I have only been using Craigslist, so if you know of any useful websites that would be helpful too!

Thanks so much!! :D
