The city of San Francisco is getting a giant helping of cosmetic work done in time for the Giants playoff run that starts Thursday.
A beautiful sight from AT&T Park, where extra flags, bunting, and landscaping are being applied to gussy the place up for its national TV close-up. The Giants have Twitpic'ed a photo of the beautiful NLDS 2010 logo just painted on the grass on the field.
More Giants shenanigans came Wednesday from the Office of Mayor Gavin Newsom. Or, rather, the Twitter account of Mayor Gavin Newsom.
Yeah, that Lieutenant Governor campaign is keeping Newsom real busy.
San Francisco City Hall is, of course, already lit orange in the evenings. SFist reports that City Hall will stay orange-lit in the evenings for the duration of the Giants' post-season.
Remember, you have to do your own part, too. Thursday is a day of orange-wearing obligation as part of the Giants' Orange October.
