The funniest run you’ll ever hear of!

I get a lot of cool event emails around the Bay Area. It’s how I keep you all up-to-date! But I can’t say I’ve seen one that made me laugh out loud like this: Cupid’s Undie Run in San Francisco!

According to the website, the “run” is the largest pantless party and mile-ish run in the nation. It takes place this Saturday, Feb. 9th in San Francisco and raises money (100% of the proceeds) for neurofibromatosis.

If you’re brave enough to take part, go to Pedro’s Cantina on King St. in the city at 12 p.m. this Saturday. Right now, you can go to this website and save 20% on tickets right now by using the promo code “TIMEOUTSF20.”

I have run the Bay to Breakers in normal attire, but I am not sure how I feel about my body to expose it to the public – as you can see by the pictures it is a fairly young crowd that participates and it seems more like a party, but it does sound hilarious and has a great cause attached to it. Not a bad excuse for a few drinks, very little clothing, and a short workout!

Best tours in San Francisco

Just because we live in the Bay Area and are “locals” of San Francisco doesn’t mean we can’t still play tourist when we hit The City! In fact, it’s one of the more fun things you can do when you cross the Bay Bridge. I love just wandering around and finding new nooks and crannies of the city I had never noticed before.

As with any major city, San Francisco has its fair share of awesome tours, and these are five I have researched that I think you should take a chance on next time you visit! From art, to history, to food, you’ll get the real, full, behind-the-scenes experience of San Francisco with any of these. If you go, let me know how it went!

1. Precita Eyes Mural Tour

On the third Saturday of every month, founder and director or the Precita Eyes Mural Arts Center, Susan Cervantes, leads guided mural walks through the Mission. It’s $20, but it takes you through an array from over 200 alley murals in the hippest neighborhood in San Francisco. You can get more info here.

2. San Francisco Urban Hike

Now, I hate to do this, but I think you can self-lead a tour rather than spend $49 on having it guided. This “urban hike,” which has gained in popularity given San Francisco’s plethora of lush areas, is something you can certainly research and do yourself. If you’d rather go with a guide, check out this link!

3. San Francisco Love Tour

If nothing else, San Francisco is known for its role in the Summer of Love. Former hippies and music lovers should be excited to pony up $48 for this radical tour, which takes participants through iconic neighborhoods from the 60’s, and hit main attractions like Golden Gate Park. You’ll see the homes of Hendrix and Joplin, and do it all from an old-school VW van!

4. Teas, Temples and Beatniks Tour

Okay, you can’t beat a tour that combines two of the coolest neighborhoods in a city full of cool neighborhoods: Chinatown and North Beach. You get to try local food, get your fortune read, taste the famous fortune cookies, and venture into North Beach to see the old hangouts of legends like Jack Kerouac. Check it out here.

5. City Guides

You’ve probably at least heard of this tour. City Guides is a full-blown non-profit with more than 200 volunteers leading 50 walking tours all around San Francisco.┬áLocal history buffs share their knowledge and whisk you around the beautiful city. And the best part for those who want to pinch pennies – City Guides is all donation-based, and technically admission is free!
