Civic Center welcomes Porta-Conan’s

Porta Conans

This week’s tapings of the Conan O’ Brien show at the Orpheum Theater near Civic Center plaza have seen the temporary installation of 15 “porta johns”, or perhaps they are better referred to as “Porta-Conans”.

So far the usual leisurely loiterers and dastardly dealers gathered near the fountain and BART station stairs seem to be enjoying them very much. Crowds are expected to gather each day prior to the taping window of 1:30pm – 5 pm each day.

Porta ConansWord is that the producer of the Late Night Show has arranged for patrol service by three separate, two person patrols from the Tenderloin District of the SFPD. Since a homicide occurred in broad daylight at 4 :16 pm only a block and a half away on Hyde & Golden Gate on Friday April 13th, that’s probably a good idea.

Wonder if this is all part of a new “Conan not Cash” program ?

Either way, San Francisco’s Civic Center’s temporary TV tourists & regularly destitute denizens all say Thanx NBC !
