Maybe my favorite opening sequence of all time. Music, cinematography, everything is perfect.

I live right next to the ballpark.

Fuck me.

Everytime the Giants are playing, taking the N back home and having to deal with Giants fans is the pits.

I thought Dodger fans were idiots... Giants fans are idiots too but way fatter.

candlestick in the 80s was like they empitied the alameda county jail and sent them all to the game

Since there was almost nothing around the ballpark when it was built, we must assume you moved in knowing it was there, right? This is like buying a house next to the airport and complaining about the noise.

The only nice thing about the stick was that it was just inconvenient enough to prevent east bay residents from being Giants fans. I always thought all those blue collar fans were lost boys from Santa Cruz.

I loved the stick. City has gotten a lot worse since those days.

They had that Mercedes 600 limousine in front of the Transamerica Pyramid.

Also "Harold & Maude" was filmed around the Bay Area.

Corporate housing

Except for Giant fans. I live the soma/misison bay area. UCSF gym is nice, has basketball courts, and cheaper than douchebag equinox

my first experience in candlestick was a giants game in 88' and I was barely 8 years old. parents and i were ignorant to the fact that a late july game could get frigid there and by the 4th inning we gave up and drove back to our cousins house. mind you we were from boston so we thought we knew cold - but the disarming sudden changes in temperature that whole day scarred me for life about the bay area.

my first experience in PacBell/ATT was a interleague mid week day game in july 2007 (vs the blue jays). the tickets were really cheap (like less than $10 each) and there was a skinny rookie named tim lincecum making a spot start. i remember him warming up on the sidelines and even from the nosebleeds was in disbelief to be seeing someone so small and thin appear to be throwing some fucking heat even in warmups. didn't stay for the whole game but I was correct when I finally saw the radar gun clocking his fastball at upper 90's

the last time i went to ATT was when there was an interleague game between the giants and redsox in 2010. it was the same day as the gay pride parade and we ended up seeing my older brother's old batchmate from back east in full leather chaps jacket and vest and a redsox hat at the game.

Dammit. I withdraw my snark.

How safe is SF? I feel very comfortable in Manhattan almost all of the time ... I don't think I've ever felt uncomfortable, but I think that this is the case only because of my lifestyle. Like, there's no reason for me to ever be anywhere that would make me uncomfortable. I keep hearing about Lower Nob Hill and Lower Pac Heights being shady, etc. -- a lot of what I hear about Manhattan but have never actually experienced -- but is this something that you can accidentally wander into in SF? Or is it pretty benign no matter where you go, which tbh is kind of what I'm assuming.

One time the cab driver misinterpreted the building number for the street number and I ended up in Harlem in the middle of the night, but I got back into the cab pretty quickly.

You might feel uncomfortable around many parts of town then.

You can try The Archive for some stuff in the Rick Owens vein. Barneys should have Thom Browne, Raf Simons, Margiela, Dries, etc.
