DISCLAIMER: I’m just going to ignore the fact that I haven’t blogged in 16 days and hope you all still love me and don’t think I’m a huge San Francisco hater. Cause I love San Francisco, and to make up for my lack of SF enthusiasm I am listing 7 reasons why I love San Francisco (inspired by a post today on SFist). Here we go….
Most of this list comes from the amazing weekend I just had

Zip-Lining over the Embarcadero: Some people may be surprised to hear this, but there are little kids who get to do this everyday on their way to school! Yea, yea, we’re all supposed to feel bad for them, but I’m fricken jealous! Don’t get your panties in a bunch, I know it’s horrible and sad, but still! Just sayin’|

Unfortunately, I do not have my own dog. Also, unfortunate: no one abandoned their dog at Dogfest for me to gladly claim. NUTS!|

Only in San Francisco can you spill a beer in your friends lap within the first 5 minutes of arriving at your destination and have everyone, INCLUDING the beer soaked friend laugh. Oh yea, AND have said beer soaked friend poor another been on his own lap to make us laugh even more. I’m guessing most of the credit goes to $1 day at Golden Gate Fields. $1 beers = Happy San Franciscans|

6. Random marching bands down Haight St. all for the cause of sit/lie. I really have no comment on the issue. I have been lucky enough to not be one of the people sitting or lying on the sidewalks of San Francisco.

Why do you love San Francisco?
