Are there public murals where you live?
Smileycreek, I and the SFKossacks had a meet-up this past weekend. I must tell you the truth. This was the best meet-up we've ever experienced other than Netroots Nation Conventions because it was a total blast the entire time. It started with the party at DailyKos Headquarters on Friday, then continued Saturday afternoon with Kim O'Conner in the Mission District. Later on Saturday afternoon we met up with a bunch of the SFKossack boys at the Twin Peaks Bar for drinks in the Castro then went to Lefty O'Doul's in Union Square that night for more drinks and dinner.
I could name drop who, what and where...but you know who you are, and you look marvelous! One thing I did was bring some money. By some force of nature, I came home with scant bits of it. Did we have fun? Well, is a frog's ass watertight? That's should answer that question.
In the Mission District Kim was an amazing tour guide. If you ever have the chance, you simply must get yourself to Kim's place...sit in her amazing garden...then have her tour you around. Smileycreek and I both ---> want to go to there...again. Here are some pics I took of murals in the Mission. San Francisco is and has always been one of the funnest places I've ever been. Growing up in Denver, once I got my drivers license, I drove straight to San Francisco, which takes 24 hours. I did that over and over. Then I moved to Santa Cruz and could get to SF in 90 minutes. Now it takes 3 hours to drive there. And we love it, every time.
