Ok, I hear you: half of you are groaning and the other half are humming the theme song to the wonderfully cheesy 80s TV show.
I loved watching Full House back in the 80s, but come on, I was eight. The fact that it was supposed to take place in San Francisco certainly had something to do with it. As a kid, I grew up in Spokane, WA, but I always felt special because I was born in San Francisco. And here was this show that showed three girls growing up in this idyllic city. Every week, I watched the opening credits of the show,which shows the Painted Ladies and Alamo Square, implying that that was where the family lived.
My friend recently moved a few blocks away from Alamo Square and told me that I should check it out. But like any other local (which I now call myself since I have lived in the South Bay for almost 5 years), I never made it to this tourist spot. This weekend, I finally stopped by on the way to drop off my friend. We jumped out and took a few pictures before the sun went down. And the whole time, I admit, I couldn’t get the Full House theme song out of my head.
What other classic San Francisco activities do us locals never get around to doing, but really should?
