anger at the De Young Museum opening
This is the scene at the de Young museum this morning. At 10:00, the time noted as the opening, this long queue formed in Golden Gate Park.
Unfortunately, there was either a mistake or a change of plans. The VIPs filled the museum, and the hoi-polloi were told to stand in line for another two hours. Luckily, perhaps with the presence of a half-dozen SFPD officers lounging around the pool registering, the anger raised in the stroller-wielding crowd was sublimated to furious drinking of vanilla lattes on 9th Avenue.
The queue’s length last night around 10 p.m. was unbelievable, stretching all the way down to JFK and towards the Conservatory of Flowers as far as the eye could see.
The museum claims to be open today until 5 p.m. Let’s all go and enjoy.
