For the 2nd year in a row the Red Bull Ride + Style took over Justin Herman Plaza. The event focused on infusing the fixed gear biking culture with the work of several local SF artists on the obstacle course. The day consisted of bike races around the course and then a series of free style duels on jumps and rails. Enjoy the slideshow.
Although it's intended for those under 12, the new Helen Diller Playground at Dolores Park is a hit with the big and small. Parents, teenagers, and kids are all enjoying the new multi-faceted addition to the Mission. The playground is color coded for different age groups that includes a sand box, 45 foot super slide, natural stone and wood climbing areas, swing sets, and an area with a series of chimes and instruments. Check it out for yourself and bring the kids along....or not.
In a hole-in-the-wall on Ross Alley between Washington and Jackson Streets in Chinatown, you'll find one the city's hidden gems, Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory.
The 210-foot iconic tower stands as a beacon in the northern end of the city, something we pass everyday but many locals have never been in it or know much about it.
All around the city, you can see gardens coming to life. It's time you get your self out there and get one going for yourself. Take advantage of all this rain and sunshine we're having, sow some seeds and get those plants going. Browse these pics, see some edibles and others that grow well in SF-it'll leave you wanting to get your hands dirty.
We took a moment to delve into one of San Francisco's most lively 'hoods. Chinatown is home to stacked apartments, street art, things to buy, eat, and drink. Check out one of the many countries within our diverse city.
