EMBEDDED SOUTH SIDE By Ted Friedman/Berkeley ReporterAug. 20, 2013
South side Urban gardener, featured on Berkeley Patch, thanks to Charles Burriss, narrowly escaped being re-arrested for '"open container," Sunday, in Camp Hate, People's Park.
The camp is really camp tough love, but if Hate Man hears about camp love, tough or not, he'll correct me (and he's a former NYT's reporter).
I overheard the officer say, "youuu, that's a cold one," as she snatched away O.G.'s beer. But the ticket went to another camper, I learned.
Miss Hollywood," from my latest Berkeley Times yarn, currently appearing in print around town, had her belongings dumpstered this morning by a People's Park worker. "it was everything she owned," said her boyfriend.
"She is very attached to her stuff," he added. I haven't had a chance to talk to her.
SHAKESPEARE'S GRAFFITI A graffiti mural, alongside Shakespeare's Books, dedicated at Sunday's Telegraph fair has been critiqued by South Side regular, Berkeley muralist, Marin Fisher. "Thoughtful and well executed," said the veteran muralist.
I popped in to the bookstore to see what Shakespeare would have said about graffiti.All we could think was, he'd approve, being an avid collector of graffiti himself.
PARKING KER FLUFFLE NEAR FAIR, SUNDAY
Some wise guys turned the 2400 block of Teley into their private parking lot, Sunday, until South Side regular, Sgt. Murray showed up, visions of multi-tickets dancing in his head. He walked among the cars lined up parking-lot style, like a car-hop taking orders.
Winged angels and a hula dancer enlivened week ten of the fair. Students are returning for Fall. Move-in day starts Saturday.
The Niners will open soon against Green Bay, with collective breaths on hold fearing Kaepernick gets injured without a back-up, or worse, is told to cool the running. -30- Follow Ted Friedman at berkeleyreporter.com for more South Side dish.
