Things You Never See  MAR 08 2001

Things You Never See in Minneapolis, But That Are Rather Commonplace in San Francisco: A man dressed in a short, pink dress and slingback pumps playing a violin and singing loudly in a foreign language. I've been here just long enough that I really didn't even think it was that strange.

Speaking of, the 12 galaxies guy (Frank Chu) was sporting a new sign the other day: "Impeach Monroe", referring to former President James Monroe, I would assume. Doing a little more digging, it seems that Frank isn't too picky about what goes on his sign:

"Apparently, Frank will rent his sign space to pretty much anyone who will pay him...the LearnIt! people did pay him to advertise..."

Will advertising on Frank's sign become the hip new advertising trend here in San Francisco?
