All Accepted Here | Dolores Park

"Hey, are you going to be here awhile?  Do you mind watching my stuff for a bit?" A shirtless man with an ornate cross tattoo on his lower back asks us.

We look to our left at his stuff.  A homemade table made out of 6 empty beer bottles held together by red duct tape, a wheel-less skateboard as the table top.  Jars of jelly and peanut butter are perched on top.  An empty coconut is jimmied under on the of the skateboard lips, presumably for better stability.  A VHS of a Giants World Series win leans against the table base.

California Academy of Sciences | San Francisco

I’m always on the lookout for cool, free things to do in the city.  I mean, who isn’t? So when I discovered Neighborhood Days at the California Academy of Sciences, I couldn’t have been more thrilled.  Neighborhood Days provides free entrance to the California Academy of Sciences for people who live in a certain San Francisco zip code on certain days of the year.  No matter your feelings about corporations, a big “thank you!” to Target for sponsoring these free days at the Academy.  General Admission on a normal day is $35 per person, making it quite the savings.
