City Hall Blues
San Francisco City Hall was lit up this weekend in an aquamarine blue for a couple of days, for reasons unknown. Though local government spends millions on press spokespersons and elaborate websites for every department, good luck trying to find out any current or useful information from either source. So it was a Mystery Blue Weekend in Civic Center, a good color for newly re-elected Mayor Ed Lee who can't seem to show up for a public event these days without being booed by protesters. It's going to be a long four years for our deeply unpopular "caretaker" mayor. Update: Eve Batey at SFist finally tracked down the answer. The blue lighting was for a Fitbit late-holiday party and they requested the color as part of their rental.
