Sunday was one of those classic sunny San Francisco summer days where there were a dozen different things going on. Some 25,000 people were in the AIDS walk in Golden Gate Park, the San Francisco Symphony was doing a free show in Dolores Park, and the Sunday Streets project shut down a few block in the Mission for an early block party.
This guy was playing guitar from his room but it was that hand made drawing that caught my eye and was probably the most random sight of the day.
It’s former KTVU reporter Dennis Richmond!
People were yelling his name as they walked by like it was Metallica.
I just wrote about this guy the other day and how everyone from the 25 year old Harvey Milk documentary are still ubiquitous today.
How random is that…
Valencia Cyclery had a free renegade style barbeque once the Sunday Streets officially ended at 2PM. Deep and the Trikeasaurus provided the beets and people were playing frisbee in the streets. It was like a Fresh Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff song.
And the next two Sunday Streets are going to be in The Outer Sunset. It’s amazing what different worlds they are. You can get a tan in the Mission, ride the bike back to the Outer Sunset and catch a cold. It’ll be interesting to see if as many of the locals come out when we take over The Great Highway for a few hours.
