Signing Off — Join Me for Happy Hour Friday

This will be my final post as editor of Streetsblog SF. Thanks to everyone who’s read and supported the site during the four years I’ve led it. I hope to see you around in my new role.

The site will be in an editorial transition period for the next few weeks as editor-in-chief Ben Fried conducts the search for Streetsblog SF’s next editor. You’ll see daily headlines from Rob Poole and Andrew Boone, but feature posts about SF and Bay Area streets and transportation will be sparser during the interim phase.

I’m excited to watch the future of the blog unfold with new leadership as I return to the audience side of Streetsblog.

As I head into a relaxing staycation, I’d like to invite you all out for one more happy hour on Friday at 5:30 p.m. at Emperor Norton’s Boozeland for some Streetsblog retrospection over, well, booze. The place is at 510 Larkin Street, near Turk Street in the Tenderloin. Come by and say farewell (for now) — I’ll be on the back patio.

Thank You, Bryan Goebel

When you take a step back and look at the evolution of San Francisco’s streets, it is truly impressive how much has improved for pedestrians, cyclists, and the public realm since Bryan launched Streetsblog SF in 2009. Progress seldom happens as rapidly as we might like, especially when you’re taking on something as deeply entrenched […]
