I'm kicking off a series that is destined to be as relevant as Ken's encyclopedic collection of Creed CDs. My 2 teenage cousins are going to be spending the next 3 weeks living with me. During that time, we are going to be doing a lot of the touristy things around the City I love. So, I thought I would write up some guides to these places along with some small tips, a little history and whatever else I can think of. And to add some ironic detachment to the whole thing, I'll have the girls give each place a one sentence review. Get ready for a slew of moments like "Yeah, I guess the Diego Rivera murals in Coit Tower were sort of cool." For even more eclecticism, for some events, we will be joined by my friend Olaf from Germany. When he comes along, I'll get his one sentence review as well. He's already told me that he will only go to Alcatraz if I can assure him there are no para-military commandos with poison gas on there.
Who knows, maybe this can become a regular feature. Brian and Mike can do it for Jersey and Ken can do it for Los Angeles. I'm not sure which of those is funnier.
Stay tuned: Wednesday is a visit to Berkeley & the Cal campus and Friday is Alcatraz and Fisherman's Wharf.
