Greetings and Salutations on this fine Turkey Day

Hello! I’d just like to pop in for a second and say a hearty hello to my new home! For those of you who don’t know me my name is Jason DeFillippo and I’m one of the co-founders of this here Metroblogging thing. I just moved to this fine city and have had to leave behind my comrades at Blogging.LA so I’m feeling a bit nervous about my first post. Feels a bit like my first day at school. I’m just learning my way around the city and getting settled in so bear with me while I get up to speed and try not to go the wrong way up a one way street. Which I have done a few times now but survived thanks to my mad driving skills which are inversely proportional to my sign reading skills. So on this, my first Thanksgiving in a new city, I hope yours is a happy one and marginally more interesting than mine. I plan on hitting the local laundromat for several hours and exploring my new neighborhood which, if you’re wondering, is right by Amoeba in the Haight. So any recommendations on places to hang out here are very welcome. See ya around!

    One word – “Cha Cha Cha”

    Cole Valley is a much cooler scene, the Haight is primarily tourists, slacker homeless and wanna bee punks.

    Ninth and Irving area is also worth the travel – just jump on the Muni train. Lower Haight is where the ‘young people’ hang, and hayes Valley as well.

    Yeah, I’ve noticed the homeless and punks quite a bit but haven’t seen many tourists. Parking is a bitch though. I need to go explore Cole Valley and the other surrounding areas. Since I’m done moving I plan on getting out more :-)
