List: Escape from Alcatraz 

Wednesday, Jun 30 2010

This is the time of year many San Franciscans get away from the Bay Area for some much-needed R&R. What do they leave the city to do?

• Stay in hotel rooms that are bigger and cheaper than their apartments

• Openly hate homeless people

• Act like they've never heard of composting

• Enjoy sex in a way that has nothing to do with gender politics

• Feel less alienated

• Ask people whether they're liberal or not

• Get somewhere in under 15 minutes

• Enjoy how friendly people are in the Midwest

• Think locally and act locally

• Eat Asian food that is less authentic

• Go for days without using irony
