SF Street Style: Best Friends with Distinctly Different Styles in Union Square

SF Street Style: Best Friends with Distinctly Different Styles, at Union Square

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. 

Transported: Biking for Newbies

Welcome to "Transported," our new weekly series about getting places in San Francisco, whether you take the bus or the BART, bike or drive. Come here to find the skinny on secret parking spots, the new bike lanes and how to get across town on Muni without losing your mind.

So, you've finally caved, ditched Muni for good and gotten yourself a bicycle. You want to learn to bike the city without getting killed, right? First tip: Wear a helmet. Here are some more to get you started.

Easy bike routes to practice your skills:

The world-famous Wiggle is a gradually-climbing route that zig zags through the city and has long been used (on foot and on horseback) as an easy way to navigate San Francisco. It starts at the Ferry Building and takes you through major neighborhoods like downtown, the Castro, Panhandle, the Haight and Golden Gate Park. Use Market Street's new green bike lanes until you hit the Castro and Lower Haight. You'll be on Fell Street, a high speed, one-way road, for only one block before you hit the Panhandle, which will take you to Golden Gate Park. Once you're in the park, relax and enjoy the scenery.

Welcome to "Transported," our new weekly series about getting places in San Francisco, whether you take the bus or the BART, bike or drive. Come here to find the skinny on secret parking spots, the new bike lanes and how to get across town on MUNI without losing your mind.

A lot of us see Muni only as a means to an end, and that's mostly what it is. But that isn't to say you can't enjoy yourself for $2: let Muni take you on some scenic SF tours (sans parking hassles). Below are some of our favorite bus routes. Tell us some of your favorites in the comments.

Is Fisherman's Wharf Less Lame When It's Miniature?

The answer is yes. Check out this video from Bhautik Josh. He used a homemade tilt-shift lens to make a tourist-trap version of Honey I Shrunk The Kids. The wharf gets a bad rap, but there are some rare gems of cool. Check out our Non-Cheesy Guide to Fisherman's Wharf to find out what.
