Beware the Bay to Breakers, Binkie
Planning a romantic picnic in at the Rose garden at Golden Gate Park on Sunday?
Leaving San Rafael to hop on a fun filled flight to Vegas Sunday afternoon?
Or planning to rent bikes and float down Haight Street, meander through the Park to Ocean Beach for a walk on the beach?
Binkie, Sunscreen, GPS, seat belts, and the best intentions will not save the day.
Beware the rides of May.
Mayhem? Oh, yeah.
Once a year, thanks to the famous Bay to Breakers, the streets of San Francisco get horrifically clogged with runners, walkers, party animals who don’t really know about the race – but “get” the Animal House party idea…streets are blocked off and backed up for miles with pedestrians, partiers, and perplexed drivers who can’t figure how to get through the Park – down 19th Avenue.
Enjoy the day, stay away!
Stuck in Marin?
Recipe for a perfect afternoon: lunch at the wonderful Avatar Restaurant in Larkspur before viewing the movie, Lunchbox.
