SFH3's Bay2Blackout 2020

September 18th - 20th

Half Minds!

Here is a breakdown of the upcoming weekend (it's probably helpful if you read the whole thing!):

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. Here's a map; look for signs & true trail arrows and don’t get lost.

  • Please bring cash to tip the bartenders at Neck of the Woods!!  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 wristband on at all times! This gets you into venues and gets you BEER!!

  • Carry cash & ID!!!

  • Are you drunk and lost? Where should you be going? Click here for a helpful map!

  • Are you bored and want to find other people? Use the facebook event or check out Kennedy's as the unofficial pre/post/any-lube all weekend

Getting Places

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

  • Use Google Maps, Transit App, or NextBus website to get real time directions all around the city, and to the East Bay and elsewhere

  • MUNIMobile app allows you to buy city bus tickets right on your phone

  • A Clipper Card allows you to put money on a physical card for city bus tickets as well as BART fares

  • You will get ticketed if you don't purchase a ticket somehow!

  • MUNI buses/trains are $2.75 cash or $2.50 using MUNImobile or Clipper

MUNI buses/trains: the numbered routes are buses, the letters are trains. BART are separate, underground trains with separate entrances (see below)

  1. enter your destination in the Google Maps app

  2. hit the blue circle

  3. select the little train for public transport instead of driving directions

  4. follow directions

  5. trust. We rock at public transport


BART trains take you to the East Bay and around the city, are more limited but sometimes faster. They charge 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!


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.

Hash Hotel: We do not have a hash hotel this year, so please reach out to guestservicer@sfh3.com for help with lodging.

Stay Updated

  • We'll keep updating the website with details and information for out of towners. www.sfh3.com

  • Don't Get Lost! Throughout the weekend we will post out our locations via twatter. Follow @bay2blackout on twitter

  • Check out the FB event and see about ride shares, costume exchange, etc.

  • Hash central: When there aren't trails and events happening, hash central is Kennedy's Irish Pub & Indian Curry House at 1040 Columbus Ave. Meet your fellow half-minds there!

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.

Special Notes

  • Bay to Breakers is a r@cist event that will fuck up transit! Keep street closures in mind when you map your route.
