Stuff to do in San Francisco


Mostly I just wanted to post a picture of people running in gorilla suits, but if you feel like checking it out there is a gorilla run going on in San Francisco tomorrow to raise money for and awareness of gorilla endangerment. Specifically for Mountain Gorillas, of which some say there are only 380 left in the world. $100 gets people a free gorilla suit (though the stink will probably never come out) and a chance to run (or walk, more likely) 7km through Golden Gate Park, a nice place. My first thought was, "why are they doing this in the middle of June?" But then I remembered, "oh yeah, San Francisco."

Maybe not as fun as last week's Zombie Walk, which happened a few days before the Cardboard Robot Rumble. Have San Franciscan's run out of real causes to march for?

Wow. That's crazy. I wonder how many gorillas ran. Imagine if every animal rights group dressed up. We would have an entire zoo roaming the streets. Good post.

The fact that you have a blog entry label called "Robots" just made my day! Kudos.
