Speaking solely in generalities, hipsters live in the Mission and douchebags inhabit the Marina.  Right?  Isn’t that something that we’ve decided on as a culture here in San Francisco?  That white guys can really be only one of those things?  The truth of the matter is that I’ve met plenty of moronic fucktards who live in the Mission and I also know some fantastic people who live in the Marina.  That being said there’s always some bit of veracity to every generality, and truth be told, there really are a lot of douchebags in the Marina.  And nothing has the potential to bring out doucheness (even in the most righteous person) than daytime drinking in the sun.

Enter the Union Street Festival. Like any San Francisco street fair there’s tons of arts and crafts booths, festival food (I LOVE festival food), live music, and even an space for “green” exibitors and businesses.  But the real treat here is watching grown ass men get totally smashed by 1pm and act like 18 year old boys.  The propensity for violence at these kinds of things always astounds me.  What is it about upper/middle class white guys in collared shirts that makes them want to fight each other so much?  Are there lives really that bad?

The people watching today will be of the highest caliber.  Enjoy!
