Any self-respecting San Franciscan owes it to themselves to read Armistead Maupin’s scandalous San Francisco novel, Tales of the City. The story follows the lives of the fictional residents of 28 Barbary Lane as they discover the sex, drugs, and secrets of 1970’s San Francisco. The real “Barbary Lane” is actually called Macondray Lane, and is located high atop Russian Hill. It’s a quaint little enclave, and it’s easy to imagine Anna Madrigal, Mary Ann Singleton, Mona Ramsey or Michael ‘Mouse’ Tolliver might appear any moment.
So you think you know San Francisco? Well, now’s the time to put your knowledge to the test!
The above photo was taken somewhere in San Francisco. If you think you recognize where, and are the first person to correctly identify the location, you win one of our highly coveted ‘Instant Streets’ posters (shipping to US only). Leave your guess in a comment, but be specific, guessing the neighborhood alone doesn’t count.
Good luck! And keep watching. They’ll be plenty of other chances to guess and win.
***That was fast! Queerembraces is the winner. The correct answer was La Rocca’s Corner in North Beach!***
A blurry John Dwyer is better than no John Dwyer, right? Thee Oh Sees played the Eagle last night like it was 2009. For a band that can easily fill much bigger venues, getting to see them at this (newly reopened) legendary space seemed almost too good to be true. Openers Fuzz and Total Control got the hot, sweaty frenzy started and the energy in the room was crazy as Thee Oh Sees took the stage and proceded to melt everyone’s face.
Yesterday we spent some time in the Lower Haight on a photo walk hosted by one of our favorite people, Brian Brooks. After a mural tour, stocking up on supplies at Glass Key Photo, record hunting at Rooky Ricardo’s, playing tourist in Alamo Square, and pigging out at Wing Wings, we have to say we’re a little jealous of all you Lower Haighters. Your neighborhood is where it’s at.
