Photographic evidence of yesterday’s encounter at In-n-Out burger.
I’m a sucker for the counter culture. A whole city to explore and I’m back at Vesuvio taking in the Beat Chic. They serve a nice Guiness. That’s my excuse. Every time I take a walk around SF I’m struck by what a quiet city it is. Not silent by any means, but there areContinue reading “Beat Chic”

And after that I will be at the WorldContinue reading “World Fantasy, Shortfuse and the Hockley Hustle”
