SFH3's Bay2Blackout 2019


May 17th-19th

Half Minds!

Here is a breakdown of the upcoming weekend:


Sunday Shit

  • Walking or public transit (even though it’s busy) will most likely be easier than trying to take a car, but it will be slow. Plan ahead!

  • NO BAGS on course except clear plastic ones that are obscenely small. Don’t carry any backpacks, etc. We’ll have plenty of booze for you.

  • Also, they will take away alcohol. Never fear, we have plenty of drink checks planned off trail to wet your whistle!

  • We will be veering off course once we enter Golden Gate Park. Look for signs & true trail arrows and don’t get lost.

  • Please bring cash to tip the bartenders at Ireland’s 32!!  We want to be good guests and invited back!


Basic Shit

  • For A-B trails, there is a huge fucking bag van. If you are running trail, you can send more of your costume/hygiene clean up stuff with the bag van to have for party time. Don’t lug your shit around if you don’t have to.

  • Sometimes B2B weekend is hot as fuck, sometimes it’s cold as balls. Be prepared to cover up or strip as needed!

  • Keep your rego tag on (or wristband) at all times! This gets you into venues and gets you BEER!!

  • Carry cash & ID!!!

Getting Places

Public Transit - Let Early Sober You help Later Drunk You figure out how to get around

  • Google Maps can give you public transit directions, but use NextBus.com (select “SF MUNI”) to get real time updates.


A Clipper card will cover you for both BART trains (http://www.bart.gov/) and MUNI bus/train rides around town (details below). You can buy and preload one at any BART/MUNI station, but not at bus stops, etc. If you get on a MUNI bus without a Clipper card, be prepared to pay cash!


MUNI buses/trains are $2.50 no matter where you’re going (the #s are buses, the letters areunderground trains - except the F is a trolley going down the center of Market Street and is kinda fun) The whole system is pretty confusing but it gets you ANYWHERE you want to go, just:

  1. enter your destination in the Google Maps app

  2. hit the blue circle

  3. select the little train

  4. search for the appropriate #/letter in your transit app

  5. trust. We rock at public transport


BART trains are more limited and slightly more expensive but less confusing and faster, charging by the length of your…….trip. (WHAT? You have a dirty mind)

Travel Hashers

Arriving and want to carpool from the airport? Use the Facebook event to see who else is cumming at that time and try to cum together! -  https://www.facebook.com/events/263621397393195/


Train: There’s also the BART train, which is a 30ish minute straight shot from the SFO/Oakland airports and costs ~$20 round-trip depending on where you’re going. -http://www.bart.gov/


Cars: From SOMA/downtown, the Mission, or anywhere else not buried too deeply in SF, a Lyft/Uber (download the app) costs about $30-40 dollars to/from the airport. Also handy for getting around town when drunk.

Stay Updated

Driving/Parking Note - We don't recommend driving! If you do, make a plan to leave your car if you can’t drive.

  • Cabs: Yellow Cab - 415-333-3333 or the Yo Taxi app, Desoto - 415-970-1300

  • Reach out to DDs! Not the boobs (well, maybe later) but the few sober people in San Francisco

  • Remember Bay to Breakers is on Sunday and there are LOTS of street closures downtown (see below), plan accordingly! Don’t attempt to take a Lyft/Uber if you can help it - they’ll be CRAZY expensive. Plan on taking a MUNI bus or train, or BART.


Hab Sales!

Want to sell your hab? Contact us before and let’s talk!


Costume shopping!

If you still need costume pieces, Folsom Street and Haight Street are fantastic places to get them. A few of our favorite stores are:


On Folsom-ish:

Mr. S Leather (I would link to it but I don’t want to be fired - enjoy the gay porn onsite)

Leather, Etc.


On Haight:

New York Apparel

Piedmont Boutique


You’ll need to eat on Saturday morning, even though you’ll feel like you’re dead. Some of our favorite spots to visit when hungover:


Brunch options near downtown lodging:


Colibri Mexican Bistro ($10 bottomless mimosas)

Friends With Benedicts (unusual mimosas)

Upcider (no specific brunch menu but lots of ciders)


Saturday brunch near trail start:

Bullitt ($39 bottomless mimosa brunch for two Groupon)

Nick's Crispy Tacos (an SF staple)

Peter D's* (no booze but good, heavy breakfast food)


*also open Monday morning

Special Notes

  • Bay to Breakers is a r@cist event that will fuck up transit! Map your route thinking about these closed streets.

  • Here’s a map of the course to see where you’ll be (partially) staggering on Sunday.
