Do you smell something funny in the air? It must be that time of year again—time for SF Sketchfest, the comedy festival that mixes national headliners, local favorites and the best up-and-coming groups for a month of sketch, improv, stand-up and alternative comedy. Besides comedic characters, this week the Bay Area offers multiple chances to boogie down with international groovers, comic artists, and a hip-hop dance party that also gives back to the community.

San Francisco has long been known as a city where you can let it all hang out. Nudists from all over the world flock here to participate in events like the Folsom Street Fair, but the city seems to have had enough of the buff. Last week, city supervisors voted to ban public nudity as of February 1.

As I walk into the new Piedmont Branch of the Oakland Public Library, I see what looks like a library: librarians quietly working, people reading, and there are walls filled with books.

Branch manager, Jenera Burton has been working on the relocation of the library for about two years.

StoryCorps

When Emily McGranachan was a child, her mothers decided to end their long-term relationship. McGranachan sat down with San Francisco StoryCorps to explain what it is like for a child when two parents of the same-sex split up, and how having a legally married status comes with the additional privilege of the ability for a legal divorce.

(SF Gate) // Proposition A, which aimed to break Recology’s stronghold as San Francisco’s sole waste management company, was overwhelmingly rejected by voters yesterday. The measure would have separated the trash and recycling services for the city into separate district controlled by different companies, which is a common model for most cities in California.
