:: CandyLand on Lombard ::

with one comment

Hasbro Entertainment marked today’s 60th anniversary, of the famous board game, CandyLand, by transforming 575 feet of tourist mecca Lombard Street into a life size Candyland board game. They put down 30,000 pieces of colored squares (which looks like jigsaw puzzle pieces sorta) to mark the colored squares that we all used to covet moving to next before our bratty sibling(s) could get there.

as SFist points out, they did change a few things: Queen Frostine is now Princess Frostine, and no more molasses swamp?! Whaaat?

Local University of California SF Children’s Hospital allowed groups of children to form colored teams to participate in a friendly game down the crooked street

there have been 49 million units of CandyLand sold since it’s inception and first production run in 1949.

This is for today, August 19th, only.

i caught wind yesterday of Wired’s Beer Robot serving up some frosty beverages at 21st Amendment – so I traipsed on over after work and caught this appliance-HAL-iphone-esque-kegerator in action.

complete with its line of widgets

i like the HAL 9000 eye

have you seen Asahi’s beer robot?

mmmmm .. be-e–e-e-er
