A portion of 25th Ave will be closed from 4pm until 2am rather than 2 pm... Good work San Mateo!

Gerald Butler is neither a Maverick or a Man. Now that Michael C. Hall is a real maverick man. He can really take out the trash and change a diaper too (and he knows Jiu-Jitsu). I just can't see closing down the road for this. I might change my mind if they included a 4 horsemen of the apocalypse parade.
