the ski jump is back on!

SF panel votes 8-0 to approve event next week:

Backers of a much-ballyhooed ski jump in San Francisco's Pacific Heights won city approval today to stage the event next week.

More than 70 people -- homeowners, lawyers, skiers and Hindu monks and nuns -- packed a small conference room to support the youthful spirit of the event, or lambaste it as a violation of city safety codes.

After almost two hours of public comments, the Interdepartmental Staff Committee on Traffic and Transportation decided that ski and snowboard wax company Icer had satisfied all safety requirements and voted 8-0 to grant the permit, which will close Fillmore Street between Broadway and Green and Vallejo Street between Webster and Steiner streets Sept. 28-29.

Thursday, 2pm-4pm here.

    It just won't be the same without a VIP vodka garden. I mean, wasn't that the entire point in the god damn first place?

    Geeze, it's just all too obvious that Hunter is dead.

    So I assume the Hindu monks and nuns were opposed? Because if they turned out in support that would probably be the most awesome thing in the history of awesome.
