Back from the Wrong Coast

I just got back into town from a vacation on the Wrong Coast. After that much-needed break, I’m very slowly getting back into the whole Interweb scene. While I get my bearings, enjoy this funky little map of the Bay Area, courtesy of the always informative and entertaining Strange Maps.

Cincinnati PARK[ing] Day Locations: go out and meet your neighbors over fresh-squeezed lemonade or a game of cornhole.

Wind Damage in OTR: CityKin documented the aftermath of Sunday’s winds, including damage to beloved Grammer’s.

How Berkeley: a passive aggressive note found in San Francisco; pot, meet kettle.

Fading Ad Blog: hurray, a fellow lover of ghost signs and other vernacular forms.

The American Experience: Coney Island: a PBS documentary that I now have to see.

Pictures of Walls: says what it is, is what it says — “a gallery of walls with stuff written on.”

Spa Town Erects Enema Statue: oh, my goodness.
