Michael Bolger is really good at getting laid off.

…and I really don’t have a problem with that.

Sunday Streets in The Outer Sunset. August 9th, 2009. FREE. 2

It’s amazing how much of your life you trade in when you agree to work & commute 50 + hours a week.

It’s amazing how many more hours there are in the day and things to do when you’re not working & commuting 50 + hours a week.

I have the chance to take a year off and explore the neighborhood and the city that I love just as we enter the next great depression.

Go somewhere new everyday. Do something different every day.

Game on.

I really like the blog. If you’d like to get to know the neighborhood a bit more, you might be interested in a project I’m working on to start a park group at South Sunset Playground (on 40th Ave and Vicente). Send me an email at msilva@sfnpc.org or 415-621-3260 if you want to chat about it. Check out the blog I created for the park group in the meantime http://www.sfnpc.org/blog/southsunset

I came across your blog when I was doing an image search. It’s making me miss California quite a bit. The architecture, travel, all of it–it’s exactly what I want to read. Oddly enough, you even have a post about one of my company’s customers. Thank you

Hello, Fun site! I was wondering if you took submissions for events, and how might I contact you for that? Thanks so much!

Hey Beth,

Thanks for the interest and saying Hello. It’s weird, but ever since I’ve been on sabbatical from blogging I’ve had more people ask about submissions or collaborations then when I was writing on a regular basis. A much better resource for Sunset event submissions would be oceanbeachbulletin.com since they’re updated on a regular basis like a real website. Thanks and take care –

Hi Michael,

We are currently writing a book and are very eager to get our hands on some images of the Critical Mass events in San Francisco. Could you please email me asap for more info.
