On Friday, we did a family trip to The Color Factory in San Francisco. It’s a really fun interactive exhibit and is especially fun for the tiny humans.
I’ve been checking out the progress of the Pier 36 teardown the last few weeks along Embarcadero as I walk home from work each day. The pier is being torn down in preparation for the next America’s Cup regatta, to be held in San Francisco in 2013. It’s been a pretty fascinating process to see!
Earlier today, I snapped a few photos with my iPhone using the Hipstamatic photo app. Black and white make for some pretty dramatic photos of a construction site!

Transmission tower in Dreamtopia, inspired by San Francisco’s Sutro Tower
The basic premise behind the game is that you have have the ability to make dreams come true — in order to do that, you need to build things to fulfill various goals for each character.
Imagine my surprise when I saw this absolutely awesome take on San Francisco’s very own Sutro Tower inside our game! I think it raises a valid point:
How awesome would it be if there were a restaurant / observation deck on top of Sutro Tower?
I’m not the only one to wonder this. Three years ago, Laughing Squid had an awesome post on what it was like from the top of Sutro Tower.

So, who do we have to talk to in order to make this happen? 😉
This image from over a year ago at Dolores Park in San Francisco is especially relevant today. Blue skies, mid 60’s, an otherwise perfect day!
My friend Scott and I took the afternoon off this past Friday to check out the Blue Angels practicing over San Francisco. We somehow found ourselves on a boat and ended up having front row seats to the practice. It was incredible!
If you need some proper theme music, may I suggest the Top Gun soundtrack? You’re welcome!
It’s official. After living in San Francisco for the last seven and a half years, I’m moving! More specifically, Kerry and I are moving to Oakland. There are a number of reasons: easier commutes for both of us (seriously! BART > Muni), cheaper, and the apartment we’re moving into is just fabulous.
Don’t worry, I still love you, San Francisco. We’re just trying something new for a bit!
It seems like such a lovely place, doesn’t it? 😉
