Map of all the parklets in San Francisco

Curbed SF made it, and it’s interactive, so you must click here to use it. Handy-dandy!

There are 43 in all! Who knew!?

La Lengua, has your time come?

Sure, triangular region of “La Lengua” was acknowledged first by the blogsthe ExaminerCBS local news, and even Google.

But when the real estate folks catch on, it somehow feels… wrong.

Maybe we should call it “the Really Oblique Trapezoid”, in step with recent trends? Or the “2nd Amendment Flats”. You know, because of the gun store and Eagle Donuts.

Dolores Park right now

The real chapel

Yes, it’s on Valencia, but no, it doesn’t host live rock shows. It’s the chapel at St. Luke’s!

Rad map with lots to say tells you everything you need to know about the Bay Area

Like what lies on the other side of the Hills of Income Separation; where to find Tiki Bar Naval Island (Fun fact: I just went to Forbidden Island for the first time last weekend, and I urge you to do the same, but only after checking out the American Pinball Museum); and of course, New Hipster.  Spanning the Bay all the way from Rusty Ship Graveyard to Those Oh So Colorful Salt Marshes, it also answers the most important question, “Why do we love Norcal?”

Because Hawk Hill.

Weird doorknob

How does one open this door? How does that doorknob even work? Does it work? Does it lead to some sort of fanciful kingdom full of crazy doors with doorknobs in the middle???

The mysteries of the universe are too vast to ponder this early in the morning.

It’s so hot today, everything’s in sloooooooow motion

One of the latest from Jeff Diehl, who’s also responsible for Spots Unknown, which has featured all sorts of cool, nostalgic posts like this and this.

Damn.  Now I want some ice cream.

Another take on hating San Francisco

I don’t know if I’ve ever been so offended while laughing out loud at the same time in all my life. Something tells me that if our good buddy Peter Shih took this tongue-in-cheek approach instead of dissing homeless people and “49ers,” he might still be able to live in this city without getting spit on everywhere he goes.

Check out the whole video for a surprise visit by the Tamale Lady (not the mural version), as well as some poignant commentary on gentrification, starring everyone’s favorite albino alligator.
