Fuck You All, a traveling exhibition of work by American photographer Glen Friedman — known for his photography of skateboarders and musicians like the Beastie Boys, Fugazi, Black Flag, etc. — arrives at 941Geary (just off of Polk Street) on Saturday and will run through Dec. 31. The exhibition will feature some unviewed collaborations between Friedman and media darling Shepard Fairey, who’s also made his mark in the area with his hot button Obama posters.

The Alhambra Theater, as you may have noticed, is my favorite building in Russian Hill. But funny thing . . . Julie over at Caliber calls the former hotel Alhambra her favorite building in the Tenderloin. I guess there’s something about palatial Moorish architecture that’s hard to resist.
