Scenes of the City: Beer On Wheels Aboard the brewtruck

We hung out with the brewtruck crew a couple times recently, once while driving around our beautiful city, and again at Fort Mason. Either way, we thoroughly enjoyed the world’s first mobile taproom.

Scenes of the City: Oakland's Bill Pickett Rodeo

It's summertime, and that means it's rodeo season. Get out your boots and hat, and head to your nearest fair.

Scenes of the City: America's Cup Opener

Despite the lack of competition, it was a thrilling and beautiful day to be out watching the first day of the America's Cup sailing, with Emirates Team New Zealand reaching almost 50 mph on the water. The Luna Rossa Challenge team sat out Sunday's opener due to a rule dispute, so Emirates Team New Zealand sailed alone, picking up the first point. 

Plenty of people joined the festivities, led by Maori dancers, jazz bands and all sorts of activities at the America's Cup Park. Enjoy the slideshow and look out for more America's Cup coverage while the action lasts.

Scenes of the City: Portola's Abandoned Rose Nursery

For this week's Scenes of the City we tour a historical gem in San Francisco's Portola District. Overgrown and falling apart, the 'hood's old rose nursery is one of those places that reaps its magic from its state of decay. Full of brambles, broken glass, and old nursery tools, the greenhouse takes up an entire city block. See it on Google maps here

We traveled to the Outer Sunset to witness boutique surfboard manufacturing at Sunset Shapers.

Scenes of the City: The Central Subway Project

We went underneath San Francisco to bring you an update of the Central Subway Project, slated to be finished in 2019.
