Dry ice dumped into Lloyd Lake… A Twitter user (leo811) captured some video on Monday of “about a dozen eruption points” where dry ice had been dumped into Golden Gate Park’s Lloyd Lake. It is not certain exactly who decided to dump the dry ice in the lake, but it does reside near where the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival took place. There is no word on whether any wildlife in the area was affected.

Stow Lake Boathouse has website… And it has details on a new cafe, planned improvements and a new fleet of boats. Ortega Enterprises took over as the vendor earlier this year.
