Scenes of the City: Forage SF-Edible Wild Food Walks

For this week's "Scenes of the City," we tagged along on an edible food forage in Golden Gate Park. Instructor Kevin Feinstein of Forage SF guided a small group of students through areas of Golden Gate Park, all the while pointing out edibles and informing the class how to best harvest, prepare and consume the plants. While foraging in Golden Gate Park is illegal, it's not illegal to learn about what we can eat in the city around us.

NOISE POP 2011: Photos & Review, The Growlers and The Fresh and Onlys @ Bottom of the Hill

The Fresh & Onlys could not have a more streamlined operation going onstage. Bathed in sunlight during one of the last Noise Pop shows of 2011 at Bottom of the Hill, San Francisco's own played one of their most airtight sets yet and left the day-drinking crowds completely buzzed off their unbridled energy.

Dan Deacon is a tease. From his sound check to the music itself, the Baltimore-based analog wizard's first Noise Pop set was a glitchy glimpse into the restless mind of one of the best indie showmen travelling the country right now. Set up on the floor of the Independent, engulfed by eager fans' faces plastered with Cheshire Cat grins and testing his Vocoder and noodling on his equipment under the light of a glowing green skull, Deacon cracked jokes about Simon & Garfunkel tunes and braced the crowd (and himself) for his second show since Halloween.

Scenes of the City: Street Portraits in North Beach

For this week's "Scenes of the City" we're adding to our ongoing series of street portraits of different San Francisco neighborhoods (check out Castro Street Portraits here). We staked out at Washington Square Park in North Beach and captured some of the people milling about.
