mayor's message to the city's bartenders. kiet? >> reporter: well, both the mayor and the bartenders themselves know that they have a lot of power on game day. and often, they are the first line of defense. if the niners win the super bowl -- >> they ain't gonna lose. are you from back east? >> reporter: sorry about that. when the niners win the super bowl, mayor edwin lee does not want a repeat of this, what he called knuckleheads. they set fire to a muni bus and rioted in the streets. mayor lee released this statement, saying he expects a celebratory and peaceful super bowl sunday in san francisco. he encouraged bar and restaurant owners to use their best judgment when serving alcohol and not serve visibly intoxicated patrons. >> well, i think to myself, no
11:01 pm
duh. >> reporter: they'll be keeping a close eye out for potential troublemakers. >> don't be dumb. let's just have a good time. don't destroy other people's property, you know. make it a fun night. >> reporter: bartenders say they won't hesitate to cut you off if you're drunk. >> being a bartender, we won't tolerate any, you know, people getting out of control, especially not here in the bar anyway. >> reporter: as they say, let's not tear down the city, and show the world we're high-class fans. after the niners beat the falcons last week, they celebrated with respect, something to keep in mind as they are trying to bring the super bowl here to the bay area in 2016. live in san francisco, kiet do, cbs 5. >> good advice. a few of the 49ers have found a different way to stay a
11:02 pm
little loose. >> dennis is here to show us how. plus, colin kaepernick and those much talked about tattoos. >> yes. on his bicep and who is not thinking about getting one right now. colin kaepernick is the talk of the 49ers. but after the quarterback, the second-biggest sports star in the bay area might be the kaepernick tattoos. the big trend among the 49er faithful is the quarterback's ink has become a big discussion since kaepernick became the team's starter in november. today in santa clara, kaepernick was asked which tattoo was his favorite. >> probably the one inside my arm that says my gift is my curse. i just feel like that's something that applies to my life in many different ways. i mean, being an nfl quarterback, there's a lot of advantages that come with it. there's a lot of doors that open when you're a quarterback. but at the same time, you're
11:03 pm
under a lot of scrutiny. there's a lot of things you can't do as well. >> a lot of scrutiny, a lot of pressure, especially when you're approaching a super bowl. but you don't have to worry about the 49ers being too tight before their biggest game of the season. ♪[ music ]♪ offensive lineman alex boone, joe staley and mike competed. it was clear who got the best moves. >> i had the most rhythm. i don't know if anybody noticed that, but i was killing that dance-off. i'm the challenger. if you want a piece, you gotta come over here and get some. >> i thought staley had a little something on you. >> come on. i know you don't mean that. i know that. >> my interview with alex boone just part of the lineup. there it is, 49er preview super bowl edition. 7:00, here on cbs 5. >> an all-
11:04 pm
star lineup for sure. >> then we're headed off to new orleans on saturday. >> life is good. all right. dance moves are one thing. but cbs 5 reporter len ramirez learned coach harbaugh isn't about to let anyone speak a peek at the 49ers fancy footwork on the field. >> reporter: we are one day closer to the super bowl and one day closer to super bowl intensity. apparently coach harbaugh was concerned about our cam on the very top of our transmission tower. we are able to take pictures with the camera. but i can assure you, coach, we were not taking pictures of your practice this afternoon. but it just goes to show you that this is intensity and this is possibly an indication that jim harbaugh may have a couple of trick plays for his brother when they play in the super bowl. len ramirez, cbs 5. some people selling 49er merchandise are feeling a little paranoid. much of the stuff you see being
11:05 pm
sold on street corners is counterfeit. one vendor told us his gear was officially licensed but customers confirmed it was not. >> the downside is you're not getting a genuine republic. the quality is probably not good. there may be chemicals that are not approved to be used. >> official nfl gear has a halo gram, tags, and yes, they are more expensive. >> we want to thank all the hundreds of viewers who have been sending us fantastic photographs like this one. this little guy's name is cloud. he is from san jose. he just turned two. thanks to his dad, tan, for that very nice note about the station he sent us. and this family is ready to root for their hometown team, of course, the niners! keep the pictures coming.

11:07 pm
repeatedly about the health care. >> i was pretty persistent, but it wasn't the only issue. so i had this perception that i was, you know, a little bit of an annoyance. >> reporter: last week, the city attorney slapped the restaurant with a 200,000 fine. in response, the company issued this statement, saying they took action the moment they noticed that they made a reporting error. >> in early 2009, we were in compliance. in mid 2009, we dropped the ball on reporting our health savings accounts to our employees. we solved that problem on our own in 2011. >> reporter: however, the ceo claims after signing the settlement with the city, he realized that the restaurant did make payments for health care expenses in 2009. more than 1900. and he says the company sent brandy and other employees letters like this one, outlining their benefits. >> we have two statements that we gave brandy. one in 2009 and one in 2011
11:08 pm
that outlined her health savings accounts. so you know, i'm sorry that there was a period of reporting that we missed, but she definitely knew that the accounts existed. >> reporter: but brandy says she got no such letter in 2009 and attorneys at the city confirmed the letter freeman showed us today never came up in the months of negotiation. in fact, they say freeman admitted to them that the restaurant never set up a 2009 health care account for employees at all. julie watts, cbs 5. well, we don't usually hear things like this from senator feinstein. >> i was the one to put a finger in a bullet hole, trying to get a pulse. >> coming up, a personal story about a day she rarely talks about. i was just like a jack ass in a jumpsuit. i was a damn fool. >> he's back on stage. hear what it took for this 70's

around 50 and santa rosa, 42. not warm but not as cold as we have been. we've got to main flow of the jet stream, basically the atmosphere's path of least resistance. let's scoot right along. sometimes low pressure areas get cut off from the jet stream. this one right here is certainly fitting that bill. when that happens, they often don't move where computer forecast models think they're going to go. this one got closer to us today and it's feeding up all this moisture. all of this jargon i'm talking about, i've got some rainfall that you probably weren't expecting. that begins to move out after tomorrow morning. we'll get a weak cold front, giving us another chance of showers. but next week, sunshine is back. but look at the arrows, down from the arctic. we'll have highs barely into the 50's on sunday and staying in the 50's for a couple days thereafter. clouds keeping us milder at night, like tonight. couple showers tomorrow, mainly

brady to reach the super bowl. flacco has played one more game in the play-offs, of course, than kaepernick, but look at his impressive numbers. nine touchdowns, no interceptions. still, he doesn't get the respect he deserves, and he doesn't care. >> that's the story of my life. no respect. >> i really don't care. you know, there's guys out there that have to make a living hating on somebody, and if that's gonna be me, then i plan on being around for a while, and if you want to continue to do it, i'll be here. >> wow. for the first time since 1997, the golden state warriors have an all-star. lee averages nearly 20 points per game. seth curry was not selected. i got college hoops. usf-portland. time is running out. the dons win 75-72.
