    Don’t understand why Hardly Strictly Bluegrass was described as a family event. There was open drug sales and people smoking pot literally in front of my 12 year old son.

    Smoking is illegal in Golden Gate, but I guess that we are all looking the other way. Hope no one with asthma ends up in the hospital. With a good lawyer, the city and the order viagra 50 mg online organization will end up in court for a while.

    It’s too bad. The music was pretty good.

    Funny thing…the Nike Marathon ran through Golden Gate Park and ended on the Beach where contestants then jammed all of the public transportation running through the Sunset and Richmond towards downtown. How are residents to kind out about this if it’s not even listed as an event? I found out at the bus stop as packed bus after packed bus passed me by.
    FU2!
