South Bay to South Bay

I had to go to the South Bay for work today.  On the way, I made a few quick calls – one of them back home to the South Bay in which I grew up – the one in SoCal (which is what my mind stil pulls up first when I hear “South Bay” at all).  Maybe it’s nomenclature, maybe it’s the sprawl and the lack of leafy foliage – but this more northern South Bay is comfortable to me.  Sure every freeway there is perma-under construction.  Sure it’s not SF proper.  But it’s warmer and familiar.

Of note on the drive down – a man painting on the side of 19th Ave, just North of Geary – easel and everything.  Couldn’t really tell his subject.  Further proof that in San Francisco art can happen anywhere, anytime, and in any form – even shockingly traditional forms.

Lastly – since this is partly a what to see/do/watch/eat/hear/touch kinda site – I have to praise 97.3′s nightly radio program “Chill.”  Does it make me pedestrian to admit to liking corporate radio?  Should I only fess up to BBC, NPR, maybe KFOG or others?  Probably.  Maybe my cred is gone already.  But I dig it – on Sundays from 10 – 2 and Mon – Thurs nights from 10 – 12, 97.3 plays what they describe as electronica and, uh, something else.  It’s good to blog to at night in bed.  And even better – take your walkman to Reverie (at Carl and Cole – now serving booze! will be great for my study habits!) in Cole Valley on a sunny Sunday – grab the paper, and sit on the back deck and bask in the air and the sound.
