Eric Cash Eats Fire, Blows Smoke

You can find him around Fisherman’s Wharf on certain evenings…

Unfortunately, the Pier officials have decided to ban fire from street performances and have been threatening to make arrests.

Eric and others like him have been doing these shows for years without harmful incident (except to himself…), so the indictment of fire is purely speculatory and baseless. It also effectively destroys his act if the measure remains in place.

Combined with the ABC’s sudden draconian measures against live music venues, threatening to fine establishments that allow under-21 audiences to ANY shows, I have to ask: Why does San Francisco suddenly seem so hostile to the vibrant local culture that made it great in the first place?
