There are people that swim there and don't even use wetsuits. I don't know how.

Three Bay Area cities saw record high temperatures Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. The high temperature today in San Francisco was 86 degrees, breaking the previous record of 82 degrees set in 1996, National Weather Service forecaster Bob Benjamin said.

Have I mentioned SF residents hating on SF residents that go to Burning Man? Like, tons of people on facebook and twitter are talking about how great it is now that burning man is going on.

Rejoice -- San Francisco Freedom Fest 2015 is here.

Thousands and thousands of our neighbors are (voluntarily) far away in a hot, dry inhospitable place full of white people on molly who are pitching their next app and/or plotting the complete colonization of the City by the Bay, all while waiting in line at the orgy tent.

I say bless them and their days of magical t?h?i?n?k?i?n?g? community making. It won't be long before they return to reclaim their love of billionaires, Bi-Rite, BMWs -- and the not-so-magical commodification of everything.

For now, the city is ours again.
Unfortunately, like most of Valencia Street, our beloved Clothes Contact is no more. But we are nothing if not resourceful, so get on your best, most outrageous San Francisco play clothes, everyone.

It's time to party like it's 1995.

Most shared story of the year:

The Mission Hipster is dead

http://www.48hills.org/2015/09/01/the-san-francisco-hipster-is-dead-yall/

Quote
At least hipsters tried to be cool and attempted to care. There was a tenuous connection to the alternative, anti-corporate spirit of the ’90s, the angular styles of the ’80s, the free-spirited experimentalism of the ’60s (and drug overload of the ’70s), the fussy transcendence of the Beats. Now we’re simply succumbing to a blinding shade of bland, reflected in the latest trend of painting all our formerly calico Victorians dove grey and toxic taupe.

Sure, there are moments when it all comes flooding back — Outside Lands, say, when the streets run wild with mismatched patterns and festival-only hairdos. But if you spend 10 minutes talking on the street with some of the attendees, things start to get strange. They’re in sales, and want to turn you on to a new time-share app they’re prepping for second-round funding. They call you “bro” and talk about how hot all the chicks in matching floral crowns are this year. Or they pour out their heart to you about how lonely it is being the only female in their development pod, but they’re off to Mykonos next week for some fun on the beach, so things are good, and by the way, did you know a lot of gay guys go to Mykonos? IT’S SO FUN AND GAY THERE!

One of my best days in SF was on my last trip there.  I rented a bike, and a buddy and I went on a thirty mile bike ride, which included riding along the Embarcadero.  Then we rode across the Golden Gate Bridge which was amazing.  I'd recommend bike riding there.  I'd like to do that again on my next trip out there.

SF may be the best city in the world for year-round cycling

I haven't biked in many, but the streets were friendly for riding.  And the weather is almost always perfect for the activity.  I've only been in the summer time over the years, but would like to see winter there.

Winter is just like summer there. And spring. And fall.

I've heard that, but a friend of mine tells me there is a difference in seasons.  I'd just like to experience it.  It's a beautiful city.  They live two blocks from AT&T Park.  Walk over to the Giants games.

so apparently we are going to Mrs. Mikey's friends wedding next Memorial Day.   It's in Oakland?

I'm looking at making it a 4-5 day trip for our 10th anniversary.    Sounds like we will want to stay in Oakland for the wedding Sat/Sunday, but where else should we look?
