Bay to Breakers

Bay to Breakers was two weeks ago. Bay to Breakers is an annual foot race started in 1912 as a way to lift the city's spirits after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. It starts from the Bay's financial district to the great highway adjacent to the Pacific coast where the breakers crash onto Ocean Beach, but most importantly it's an opportunity for people of all ages, races, sexes, and sexual orientations to come together and dress up in stupid costumes and get drunk before 10 AM on a Sunday. Here's a picture of a guy in a Winnie the Pooh costume I found outside my door at around 4:30PM getting screwed with by his friends. I call this picture "Pooh, Poohed".
