SFH3's Bay2Blackout 2022
Here are some details about Bay 2 Blackout 2022.
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 are allowed on the Bay to Breakers course except clear plastic ones that are maximum size 8.5” x 11” like this. Don’t carry any regular backpacks, etc - if you absolutely need sunscreen/costume pieces/etc make sure to bring a clear one..
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 (but you can always catch up with us by following on Twitter - @bay2blackout).
Please bring cash to tip the bartenders at Neck of the Woods!! We want to be good guests and invited back!
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!!!

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 NextMuni.com for more specific info about San Francisco's Muni.
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!
**If you want to travel using the Clipper app instead of carrying an extra card: https://www.clippercard.com/ClipperWeb/clipper-on-your-phone
MUNI buses/trains are $3 no matter where you’re going (the #s are buses, the letters are underground 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:
Enter your destination in the Google Maps app
Hit the blue Directions button
Select the little train
Search for the appropriate #/letter in your transit app
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)
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.

Check out the FB group and see about ride shares, costume exchange, etc.
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.
If you still need costume pieces, Folsom Street and Haight Street are fantastic places to get them. A few of our favorite stores are:
Mr. S Leather (I would link to it but I don’t want to be fired - enjoy the gay porn onsite)
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:
