Scenes of the City: 23rd Annual Jimmy’s Old Car Picnic

Saturday's sunny afternoon was ideal for hanging out in Golden Gate Park at the 23rd Annual Jimmy's Old Car Picnic. The wide array of vintage cars and BBQ proved to be a great alternative to the crowds at TI Music Fest.

Pier to Plate: Part I

Look down at your plate. Do you know where that food came from? It's the question of the decade, if not the century, and everybody (in the Bay Area anyway) is paying attention. Surrounded by open water, San Francisco has quite an advantage over our landlocked sister cities when it comes to indulging in fresh seafood. We wanted to take a closer look at the journey our local fish takes on its way to the dinner table, so we hung out at Pier 45 to document the process. The first part of our three-part series is all about the pier.

 

Scenes of the City: Cal Bears at AT&T Park

This for week's Scenes of the City we hung out inside and outside of AT&T Park for a couple odd events. One was the aforementioned Cal Bears football team playing in the park (they will be playing most of their home games there because of renovations to their home field). The other is the first-ever water polo match in McCovey Cove. As part of effort to garner support for their sport, the UC Berkeley Alumni Water Polo team vs. The Olympic Club Water Polo team played a match in the somewhat frigid waters of the bay.

Scenes of the City: BART Protests

For this edition of Scenes of the City we tagged along for the fourth week of BART protests in downtown SF. The protesters stayed out of the paid area of the BART stations until they made their way to the Embarcadero. In the Embarcadero Station, one man crossed over to the paid area. Two arrests were made over the evening.
