EDIT: Ignore the 3
I'd vote for #1 if the space between San & Francisco can be tightented a bit (Rule of thumb is the width of a lowercase l in the chosen font should be the space that's between words.)
Quick totorial on how to do that in photoshop:
1) Put your cursor in the space between the words.
2) open your "character" pallet. The third window down from the left has an A|V symbol. There you can choose - (negative) whatever number you want (you can type in values).
3) keep decreasing the space until it looks about the width of maybe an uppercase I in that font (since it doesn't have lowercase L's).
Otherwise I vote for #2.
I was suggesting to do version "A" a long time ago
I agree with Kathy.
I fixed it.
Im too tired to go back and give it a black background, but if you stare at it for 45 seconds and look at a black piece of paper it will give you an idea of what it looks like behind a black background.
...watch someone actually goes and trys that...
Oh cool work Erick!
One more nit-pick (don't kill me!)
I'd add some positive kerning space between the CI in Francisco. They are so close to touching that from a distance it may look like a backwards D
The A could be a hair closer to the S in San, but that's not as major as the C & I colliding. F & R could use a touch more space but are the least offender. Sorry, I just noticed it since higher res version was posted.
It's OK when letters like the I & S connect. It's called a ligature and doesn't harm the readability of the letters.
OK, Kerning lesson over
I think it's great that the red looks just as readable on white as it does on black. That way it can be used on business cards and a variety of other things! I really like this new version of the Logo. It looks very starwarsy, and I like the was San Francisco stands out more!

reminiscent of the Empire logo.
A looks good to me!
Nice kerning! No more SAN FRANDSCO
Can't wait to see the shirts! Thanks for all the hard work Erick!

We should have a san franDisco.
Well spelling like that would make us the dumbside of the Force and Disco... ew...
Yeah you're right, Eva might go.
Hey, disco was cool! The music, that is. Now the clothes are another matter.
OK, back to our regularly scheduled topic...
Looks like voting is over, but I would have voted for A as well... sorry, but things have been hectic for me and I haven't had a chance to get on the boards much.
Great job on the new design though - I really like it that way!
