San Francisco park officials on Friday announced two confirmed mountain lion sightings in the city in recent weeks, one at Golden Gate Park and the other at Lake Merced in the southwestern part of the city. Neither report indicated aggressive behavior toward humans, but scare the shit out of us.
Outside Lands 2019 has beefed up its fencing and road closure system so much that you can no longer rubberneck from sidewalks and paths to watch Outside Lands for free like in years past. But there are still Golden Gate Park quirks that can position you to pretty clearly hear
