Here’s How The Salesforce Convention Might (?) Screw Up Your Life

: sfist – excerpt

According to the SFMTA, as of 8 p.m. tonight, Howard Street between 3rd and 4th streets and Fulton Street between Larkin and Hyde streets will be closed, and won’t reopen until 3 p.m. on Saturday, October 18.

Starting at 6 a.m., Saturday through 6 a.m., next Saturday, Grove between Larkin and Polk will also be shut down. as of 10 p.m. Monday, you can also kiss Larkin Street between Hayes and McAllister streets, Polk Street between McAllister and Grove streets, and Grove Street between Larkin and Hyde streets goodbye until 6 a.m. on Wednesday, October 15.

That’s not all! From noon Tuesday, October 14 to 6 a.m. Wednesday, October 15, Grove Street between Van Ness Avenue and Polk Street, Polk Street between Grove and Hayes streets, and Dr. Tom Waddell Place (that’s the street formerly known as Lech Walesa) between Van Ness Avenue and Polk Street will be closed…

That last closure is likely because of the Tuesday’s “Concert for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals,” an event that’s part of their “Dreamforce Gala.” That night, attendees will enjoy cocktails at City Hall, a performance from Bruno Mars at Civic Center Plaza, and a performance from Cake (remember them?!?) at Bill Graham. There’s even an “exclusive after-party” at City Hall, hosted by MC Hammer and (twitter hissyfitter) Of course…
