Bae 2 Breakers

Only in San Francisco will you find 50,000 participants and 100,000 spectators oogling the crowd where the birthday suite costume is far from abnormal.

Bay to Breakers (or as we endearing call it, Bae 2 Breakers) started as a celebration to rebuild the city after the notorious 1906 earthquake that wiped out the city.

It goes down on the third Sunday of May, starting downtown (bay) and ending at the beach (breakers). It’s a 7 mile footrace, but most people show up solely for the sights. The party starts early, and you don’t want to let the sun beat you to the horizon…

It’s surely a wild ride full of spectacles to make you bright-eyed.

Have no fear, the 3 steps to surviving Bae 2 Breakers in style are right here:

Step 2: Get you a rockin’ crew

Step 3: Most importantly, get you an outfit on fleek

You’ll walk. You’ll laugh. And you might just be afraid.

When the break seems too far out of sight, you can always pull over for arguably the best list of restaurants in the nation.

Let that tired face sit back and enjoy a bite.

A little slice of heaven. The perfect recipe to satiate an over-zealous, city-shocked mind.

Squaw Valley Style

We left Silicon Valley at 6:00 pm on Friday night: 4 hours, 3 girls, 2 orders of curly fries, and 1 Taylor Swift CD later, we made it to our quaint cabin tucked in the woods of Tahoe City for a weekend of boarding & skiing….
