I'm back! What's new in the city? 

Post#1 » by cdubbz » Tue Sep 14, 2021 5:01 pm

I'm back in the Bay Area for a few days and going to check out what's new in San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose the next few days. Any cool new spots to visit? I'm definitely going to pass by the Chase Center when I get a chance.

I was just home visiting for the first time in a few years. Needless to say, the Bay has changed a lot.

I went to a few Giants games while I was there...super fun. Found a few cool bars in SF and Santa Cruz. Spent most of my time in Pacifica, where I am from. The Taco Bell, which is now a cantina, is fun. Had lunch by the beach and watched the surfers.

Melo and amare should thrive in this offense. If Jeremy Tyler and cole Aldridge looked that good in summer league then us knick fans have a lot to be excited about. Make room for all the bandwagoners when we take off

Down near Chase Center, check out Mission Rock, the Ramp, or the Atwater for outdoor food and drinks.

Same! They serve booze now. It's worth doing for sure.

I used to live in Pacifica back in the mid to late 90s. Had an oceanfront ocean view apartment on Esplanade. I was there during El Niño which was in either 97 or 98. The waves were crashing so hard on the cliffs in front of me, made it hard to sleep at night It was so loud. They ended up cutting a house in half to expedite it's fall off the side of the cliff. Every morning the news helicopters would be out there and I would be in my window drinking coffee and smoking a cigarette. Then watch myself on the news later. Lol. But they brought in truckloads of car sized boulders and dropped them over the cliff to make a seawall. That was probably the last good rain California had.

In 2002 I moved to Pacifica from dogpatch in the city when I had my first kid. There are some cool breweries now and a tap room from Humble Sea on Pedro Point.

And yes, the cliffs are slowly eroding and some of those apartments on the north end of town are perilously close.

Yeah, the Lands End which was kitty corner across from me lost their parking lot over the cliff. I think they actually maybe closed down now. The apartment I was in Still had a street and the front of the cliff in front of me. I was at 405 esplanade on the second floor. I had zero obstruction to my view. I was working at Compaq in San Bruno at the time. It was about a 10-minute drive to work.

Cant say im surprised, but every big city is the same. Shell of its former self. Lots of businesses went under downtown, but at least it is more alive than Seattle.
