How adorkable!

Always with the dogs in the sidecar. Always.

A worthy effort, but not up to the level of SURF Alaska, the gold standard of San Francisco hipsterdom.

For shame.

Hey! Do you know cycling is up a lot in San Francisco during this Era of Fixie Bikes?

It’s because this is the Era of Fixie Bikes.

Cycling has its boom and busts and right now we’re in a boom.

This boom has nothing to do with having more bike lanes in the city recently.

Sorry.

But that’s why assigning more real estate to bike lanes won’t increase cycling 500% by the year 2020, which is the official goal* of SFGov.

*I don’t think anyone believes in this goal, but it’s what people say nevertheless…

Famous San Francisco street photographer Justin Beck has bounced back from losing his camera on the mean Streets of San Francisco, looks like.  He’s got another Nikon to work with so that’s nice.

Check it, a canary yellow streetcar.

Is this an album cover?

Hipster Era Ends on June 3, 2010 at Cafe Royale – It’s the Hipster Apocalypse!

Monday, May 31st, 2010

Tenderblog brings news of the Hipster Apocalypse arts show at Cafe Royale (800 Post at Leavenworth) running ’til June 27th.

Drop by and you’ll get to see works from:

Mario Delgado, D Young V, Megan Wolfe, Albert Nguyen, Kevin Buckley, Teppei Ando, and Tamar Solomon

Don’t miss the opening reception on Thursday, June 3rd, from 8:00 PM  to Midnight. 

The manifesto:

“Ironically, although hipsters have existed in one form or another for decades, the hipster movement has become more mainstream, influencing the American status quo by supporting alternative art, music, and fashion. Like an epidemic of entitlement, the hipster condition has spread across America and over the seas to Japan and other countries susceptible to American culture. We see hipsters every day riding their fixed-gear bicycles on their way to studying film at local art schools. They drink the most expensive coffee and the cheapest beer. Imagine a world where alternative culture is pop culture; a world where Vampire Weekend plays the half time show at the Super Bowl instead of Bruce Springsteen; a world where stores selling used records and clothing are as large and as common as Walmart. The purpose of this show is to create awareness of the hipster way and the rise in demand for outrageous moustaches, vacuum sealed jeans, high-school sports tee shirts, and the over-consumption of Pabst Blue Ribbon.” 

That’s harsh. Harsh but fair.

“Café Royale is a neighborhood coffee & tea house and beer & wine bar offering a wide assortment of international beers, wines and distinctive sake and soju cocktails. Located in the heart of San Francisco, the Café supports the work of Bay Area artists throughout the month through visual arts exhibitions, music programs, art markets and events to benefit nonprofits.”

See you there!
