    Civilized should probably read "civilized."

    He's coming from Portland to see a Barry McGee retrospective. Just put him anywhere in the Mission, or maybe Oakland.

    Or in a "I just got back from Black Rock and haven't had a chance to wash the playa dust off yet" RV parked on the Embarcadero.

    You can. When you look at the threads list, double-click right next to the thread title (i.g. to the right of "Francisco.", don't click the hyperlink) and you can change the title

    really? To anyone who knows, saying "Piedmont" is more impressive than Berkeley. Piedmont is like the Palo Alto of the East Bay. Architecturally, it is spectacular. Lots of pre-WWI Maybeck and Morgan homes. It's the best of Berkeley without a trace of the worst of Berkeley.

    should have been clear: she was talking about people outside the bay area. which people inside the bay area must do ... occasionally, if only under protest.

    I thought there was a time limit on changing titles. Maybe that was the old system.

    Since they don't allow profanity in thread titles I'm open to ideas.

    "Why are all these idiots waiting in line?"

    "Hey, there's a naked guy!" "So?"

    "How have you been harassed by a homeless man today?"

    "Why I hate this restaurant, part..."

    "Wait, why won't you eat this perfectly good food?"

    San Francisco coffee shop Four Barrel has laid the law down on hipsters patronizing their outdoor coffee outlet, Alley Barrel, in order to keep things peaceful between them and their neighbors.

    The coffee shop will no longer tolerate littering, dirty dishes left outside and rowdy customers at their premises—rules that most coffee shops would enforce.

    However, they also prohibit customers from talking about “annoying hipster topics like who they f###ked last night”.

    When hipsters protested by sharing the poster on Instagram—the coffee shop had to step in by introducing a new rule: “No posting this on Instagram, you hipster”.

    4 Barrel have the reputation of being the coffee version of the Soup Nazi.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to order a coffee without making the clerk cry. Perhaps I should try this place out. I do like their Antigua Guatemala coffee.

    BTW, I totally went native on my recent trip to NorCal. I brought my own shopping bags to the store everywhere I went.
