This inspired Meetups in San Francisco
UPDATE: I'll be posting live updates of our location during the walk right here - http://twitter.com/bhautikj/ ; we're also definitely going to get some talks from the artists at Open Canvas at the end of the walk :)
Join us for a walk along historic Haight St, starting in the Lower Haight, through Haight-Ashbury and ending back on Divisadero. This one is an easy stroll with light hills - 3km (1.9mi).
At the end of the walk at Divisadero and Hayes going to have some talks from some some of the artists at Open Canvas, a project where you can get to see some street art going up live! (http://haighteration.com/2013/08/mysterious-art-project-t...).
Haight St. was the center of the 'Summer of Love' social movement of the 1960's, and maintains it's bohemian feel. Along with lots (LOTS) of street art along the way, many classic 'painted lady' Victorian houses as well as the many, many nods to counter-culture along the way.

Public transport in San Francisco is always the best option if you can manage it. A workable option is to park where there tend to be more available spots (try: Potrero Hill, near 16th st east of Potrero Avenue, then get the 22 MUNI for 15 minutes).
From inside SF, catch the Muni!
Haight & Laguna: 6, 71 (from Sunset, Downtown)
Market & Church (10 minute walk): F, J, 37 (Downtown, Castro)
Fillmore & Haight: 22 (from the Marina, Potrero Hill, Caltrain)
From further out:
BART: get off at 16th + Mission or Van Ness and walk
Caltrain: get off at 3rd & 22nd, walk to the 22 Muni
Street parking is often hilariously difficult in San Francisco - get the app at http://sfpark.org/ if you are looking for street parking.
If you are looking for a parking garage near the start:
Zenanli Parking: 344 14th Street
Ampco System Parking: 1650 Mission Street
Parking garage nearer the end:
Fillmore Center Garage: 1475 Fillmore St

I hope you can join us!
