Friday Link Roundup: Why Millenium Towers is Sinking and Seoul-Style Bulgogi in the Richmond

Friday September 16, 2016

How is everyone’s weekend looking? We’ll be hosting friends this weekend, in town for the Texas-Cal game on Saturday (hook ’em horns!) It’ll be a few days of hiking, beaches, food, and football. Not a bad way to spend a September weekend.

Have a great weekend everyone!


From around the web this week:

SFist dove into shuttle(aka Google Buses) bus stats and found that they carried 34,000 riders per day (in 2014). Interesting, that is a LOT of people. (To put it into context, Muni carries around 650,000 riders/day, BART carries 430,000 riders/day, and CalTrains carries 53,000 riders/day.)

The investigation into why Millenium Towers is sinking has begun and Curbed put together a handy primer on how it was built and why it’s sinking.

Did you know SF’s (park)ing day has gone global? Instagram has the photos. (Madrid’s is particularly precious.)

Also in photos, this is an insane photo of Marin through the evening fog. Yowsers.

I’m going to need to check out this latest Seoul-style bulgogi restaurant, in the Richmond.

Also on my to-do list: read this book. (Strangers ARE our friends!)

This new column on parenting in literature looks really really interesting.

  2. Right?! This is why we all fall in love with the Bay Area and never want to leave.
