Remember how we told you that officials were comparing security at Super Bowl City to that of the airport? Well, actually, it turns out it's way stricter!

The "fan village" at the foot of Market is free to the public, unless you count the time investment one must make in, per ABC7, passing through a metal detector then having your possessions searched.

But, OK, this Curbed SF post makes it sound a little fun. Besides, I've never seen Chris Isaak in concert, which as an Outer Sunsetter I feel like I should? He's playing at the SB City grand opening on Saturday (the place is open from 11 a.m. to 9 or 10 every night through February 7, when it closes for good at 3), so maybe it's worth going.

But first, I gotta get that chaw and my Karma Go out of my bag, as neither will be admitted. In fact, here's a list of all the items you are not allowed to bring onto Super Bowl City's sacred grounds:

  • Bags larger than 18" by 18" in size
  • Alcohol
  • Bikes, pedicabs, roller skates, roller blades, skateboards, "Razor" style boards, Segway personal transports, hover boards, or any other self-propelled device
  • Drones
  • Coolers or containers
  • Firearms, fireworks & explosives
  • Sticks, rods, bars or poles of any kind [insert joke about the one up someone's ass here]
  • Dangerous weapons including any type of edged weapon to include knives, impact weapons and electric pulse weapons
  • Flags or banners with poles and non-approved commercial signage
  • Sprays & pepper sprays
  • Laser pointers
  • Stunning devices
  • Shopping carts
  • Demonstration articles or items including tents
  • Offensive weapons
  • Folding chairs or lawn chairs
  • Illegal drugs or substances
  • Smoking cigarettes or e-cigarettes, chewing tobacco
  • Radios, walkie talkies, jammers, scanners
  • Portable speakers
  • Wireless access points
  • Hazardous and toxic materials [Sugar? Nail polish? Celery?]
  • Pets and animals will not be permitted through the site during Super Bowl City opening hours except for service and support animals, such as guide dogs, assisting those with disabilities [SORRY THUNDER]
  • Any item deemed inappropriate or hazardous by Super Bowl City security [So, basically, the "because I say so" security line catchall]
