Crab pots? Crab traps? Lobster? I don’t know the biz.

I think you can rent these near China Beach?

Anyway, never seen this, in all my years, you know, way out west near Ocean Beach instead of near the fleet at Fishermans Wharf

Yeah, me right near the beach
Right near my reach is the fire for the streets
If the feds test me, me gwan take aim
Crunch like Nestle, Snipe from the planes
Snipe like Wesley, punch like Hawaiian

Perhaps these new signs could be plugged into a Waze or Google Maps app?

BRO, DO YOU EVEN [BLANK?] – The Strongmen of La Playa Lug Their Parallel Bar Apparatus Halfway Across Ocean Beach

That’s all I got, the headline.

I wonder how far they carried it, or if they rode MUNI with it.

Anyway, at the very least they lugged it from a parking lot off the Great Highway, and that’s a workout in itself…

Is this sign necessary in the coming Age of Waze / Ubiquity of the Google Maps?

I don’t think so…
