Epic Weekend, Part 4: Uniqlo Launch
2012.10.07

The store actually opened on the Friday before (2012.10.05), but this was my first chance to actually stop by. Lines were ridiculously long for the first week or so, and I never actually made it inside until the following weekend. This is Uniqlo’s first West Coast store, a large flagship spot (former DSW store) on Powell Street in the heart of Union Square, right across the street from H&M and down the street from Urban Outfitters.

Epic Weekend, Part 5: Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival 2012
2012.10.07

The finale to the epic weekend was HSB 2012, a three-day festival of free music in San Francisco’s largest urban oasis, Golden Gate Park. Maybe too much weed-smoking and bare-footed dancing in the grass, but a great close to a great weekend in the City. Not pictured were a 49ers home game and two Giants home games in the NLDS against Cincinnati.

Some views of Berkeley and the East Bay on a hike up through Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve...

Zoom in on the Southside around Telegraph Avenue, which has most of the campus’ midrise dorm towers.

The hills directly above campus are home to the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, named after Ernest Orlando Lawrence… Somewhat hard to imagine the Berkeley of now playing a role in the Manhattan Project.

After stumbling through Strawberry Canyon, we find ourselves somewhere in the Berkeley Hills, with some great views of the whole of the East Bay…

El Cerrito and, in the distance, Point Richmond, home to the Richmond Shipyards during World War II, which built more ships during the war than any other shipyard in the U.S. A bit hard to imagine how things were like back then, but the war effort and the shipyard jobs brought people, including many African Americans, to the Bay Area, still reflected in the demographic makeup of places like Richmond here in the East Bay and Bayview / Hunters Point in San Francisco.

Richmond

Chevron Richmond Refinery
The global energy giant still his close ties to the Bay Area, despite dropping their Downtown San Francisco offices on Market Street in favor of suburban San Ramon a long time ago. As expected, it’s a touch-and-go relationship with the surrounding residential neighborhoods, most recently flaring up in August after a fire, but the refinery is still Richmond’s single largest employer.

After walking for half an hour down curvy hillside streets, we make it to Northside and back to the campus for a ride up to the top of the Campanile bell tower…

While Hearst Avenue, Bancroft Way, Oxford Street, and Gayley Road can be considered the general boundaries of the campus, UC is the largest landowner in Berkeley, and campus-related facilities spill out in all directions, including the Southside (primarily frats and dorms), Northside (shown here with portions of the Graduate Theological Union), and into Downtown Berkeley. The campus itself is always under construction, a lot of it having to do with seismic upgrades, and it’s always a bit fun to see what’s changed since the last time I visited…

Albany and, at left, Golden Gate Fields (horseracing track), now the only major horseracing venue after the closure of Bay Meadows in San Mateo a few years ago.

Big Game, Cal vs. Stanford
2012.10.20

Strangely enough, I found myself back in Berkeley the next weekend to catch the next installment of the local college football rivalry, Cal vs. Stanford. This was my first time back to the stadium since completion of the retrofit, and I wasn’t expecting much from the Bears given their history. Thankfully, the hill just above the stadium, known as Tightwad Hill, offers some great views into the stadium… It’s a great spot to watch games for free, and in some ways beats the stadium bleachers.

Golden Gate Park
2012.11.04

Some random shots in Golden Gate Park.
But first, we start off in Alamo Square, as we make our way on foot to the park’s eastern entrance at Haight and Stanyan.

The de Young Museum, a fine arts museum inside the park, has a free observatory tower with some nice views of the City’s western neighborhoods…

Lounging around on the Music Concourse, which is surrounded by the de Young on one side and the California Academy of Sciences on the other, both being perhaps the park’s largest attractions. Both institutions moved into new buildings several years ago, and for all the hullabaloo surrounding the new underground parking garage inside the park, have otherwise settled in nicely.

JFK Drive is closed to vehicular traffic on Sundays, perhaps the best day to visit the park.

Now a peek inside the Japanese Tea Garden, the oldest public Japanese-style garden in the U.S. and the birthplace of the fortune cookie in America.
