My San Francisco Wishlist: Part One
Hi San Francisco,
I really love you as a city. You’re far more exciting and diverse than my native Detroit. You have so many neighborhoods, with so much personality. There are more restaurants per capita here than anywhere else in North America they say. You offer parades and bars and people of every persuasion. But I do have a few problems with you. This is one of them:
Why is so hard to figure out what to do every weekend? Why do I always hear about things after they happen? What I’d like from you San Francisco–what I would really love in this great city of ours, is a centralized calendar telling me everything that is happening on any given day.
Sure, we have Squidlist and MetBlogs and SFist and the Chron for some local events. And every concert venue has their own calendar online. The SFBG and SFWeekly have their own claendars, and for sexy events you can check the ErosBlog calendar. But I don’t want to have to check two dozen sites to figure out what there is to do on any given Sunday. I want to check one.
Why isn’t there a central site that culls all the info about what’s happening, and then provides to us in a simple, searchable interface? Anyone out there interested in engaging in the tireless, thankless task of making one? I know I’m asking a lot here, San Francisco, but it’s only cause I love you.
PS If you have any great suggestions for calendar sites that would fill this hole in my heart, please respond in the comments below.
