A Dozen years ago, I stumbled across a telltale scene in my apartment. A pair of voices emanated from the shower, my room was, literally, fogged up, condom wrappers littered the floor, Marvin Gaye played on the sound system, and a bone dry bottle of wine was on its side. I suspected my roomie had fallen into some luck -- and my hunch was strengthened when he subsequently married the girl and had two kids with her. I'm perceptive that way.

Now, the above scene caught on Haight appears to be the remnants of a wild night of margaritas: An empty case of tequila and a blender box. Open and shut.

Sadly, none of the delicious alcoholic beverages were there for the taking when your humble narrator chanced across this tableau. On the good side, however, neither was any margarita vomit.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
