Best friends Anna Wilson (left) and Annie Yu (right) were happy to step out in some post-rain daywear last weekend. I love seeing how different the styles of two best friends can be. Both students at Academy of Art University, Annie wore a trendy layered look with a killer turquoise statement necklace, while Anna's was much more free-spirited with tri-color hair and textured toe-nail polish.
For anyone who thinks North Beach has lost its way as a leading literary light, shrouded o’er by a toxic cloud of weekend rowdies, think again.
Last night, every descendant of Ginsberg’s angel-headed hipsters within a world-wide radius clamored to Jack Kerouac Alley for the joyful kick-off of the 2nd San Francisco International Poetry Festival.
Founded by former SF Poet Laureate Jack Hirschman, that raffish North Beach raconteur and beloved “poet of the people,” this now-biennial bash is a solid hit.
