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.

Scenes of the City: Burrito Joints and Taco Trucks

By now, you've probably heard (or commented on) our naming (by blind taste test) of the top 7 burritos in San Francisco.

For this week's "Scenes of the City," we turned to a few of San Francisco's burrito joints and taco trucks that make all the magic possible.

Scenes of the City: Meet Your Cougar Valentine Party @ 111 Minna

For this week's "Scenes of the City" we attended the Meet Your Cougar Valentine Party at 111 Minna. Although the scene was a bit like an awkward high school dance at times, as the drinks flowed, people loosened up and the cougars and cubs came out of their dens.

As night falls on downtown, Andrew plays his full drum set on Market Street in hopes of finding a professional drumming gig. His sign reads, "Seeking Pro Opprotunities!"

Scenes of the City: Traversing Van Ness

We've decided to start a bit of a photo diary project here on 7x7. Every Tuesday,  local photographer Joseph Schell will post a series of photos documenting a facet of San Francisco life. We're calling it "Scenes of the City." For his first project, he walked Van Ness (a street which traverses San Francisco) end to end and documented how things change along the way. Enjoy.
