Corey and Tommy Do Bernal Heights

On Tuesday evening of last week Tommy and I explored San Francisco's Bernal Heights neighborhood as part of our #coreyandtommydoearth adventure series. Below is my contribution to our shared Corey and Tommy Do Earth web log.


Firstly, I'm sorry to be posting this post nearly a week late. I think I'll blame the weather in Boston and the release of season three of House of Cards on Netflix.

Secondly, I can't believe we walked all the way to the top of Bernal Hill in the dark last week. Also, did you know that Bernal Hill, along with the other hills in the San Francisco area, is a folded hill which was created by the "wrinkling up" effect of the Pacific plate subducting under the North American plate when the North American and Pacific plates were converging around 150 million years ago? It's true. Or it's probably somewhat true, maybe? It was on Wikipedia.

Anyway, my favorite parts of last Tuesday evening were as follows:

  • Overhearing a woman say into her cell phone, "I wanted to fucking kill my client, and then myself."
  • The view of the city from Bernal Hill
  • Hopscotch
  • The Mexican blankets at The Blue Plate Restaurant
  • Dipping French fries in onion ring dipping sauce at Burger King

I am so super stoked about tomorrow's visit to, um, Union Square, which also happens to be the first neighborhood that I lived in as a San Franciscan.

Okay bai!


P.S. Here are some pictures I took with my iPhone 6.
