scenes of the city
For this week's Scenes of the City we took a bicycle ride on the Sunday Streets route through Golden Gate Park and turned south to follow the Great Highway to Sloat Ave where the event terminated. The day was full of lots kids running around, fun music, dancing in the street and even a bit of sunshine.
For those who couldn't make it to Stern Grove yesterday, here's a photo recap of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings' stellar performance. 80 degree temps + free world class music = a great day.
Scenes of the City: Rock Climbing and Bouldering At Ocean Beach, Glen Canyon Park and Corona Heights

We rose early on Sunday and made our way down to Marina to capture the harrowing Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. Swim, bike, run and do it as quick as possible. This year's winner, Andy Potts finished the 1.5 mile swim, 18-mile bike and 8-mile run in just under two hours. Badass.

Anchor Steam Brew House.
For this week's Scenes of the City we visited four different companies supported by SF Made, a nonprofit which encourages companies to set up shop and produce locally. We visited Anchor Brewing, Rickshaw Bags, Cayson Design Inc. and Ritual Coffee Roasters.
This building is now gone -- torn down by its property owners, Caltrans. It was demolished last year, but for many years it sat on the shore of Islais Creek in SF's Bay View Hunters Point neighborhood.
For this week's Scenes of the City we visited Alemany Farm on the southern slope of Bernal Heights and several other gardens in SF and checked out spring planting, cleaning and maintaining. Also check out details of the Alemany Farm Earth Day Celebration here (scheduled for April 23). Enjoy.
Pineapple Sage grows readily in the cool SF climate and smells like, you guessed it, a pungent pineapple.
