Re: Bay Area short term job/suggestions/help

Was at the Marin Headlands yesterday...if someone doesnt go there when they visit the bay area they have done blown it man. I dont think ive seen anything like it, and beats the pants off fishermans wharf or whatever other tourist thing. Its worth the extra little hike to go above the parking areas ...

Re: Ballpark Village v4.7 (st. louis)

Does anyone know when the last 10+ story, or even 5+ story built in downtown was? It seems like this is the biggest and the only development in Downtown STL that I can think of. residential or commercial? roberts tower went up in...'09? https://images1.apartments.com/i2/wn33M3igu3BCEAv3iTsudiXkhSgQ...

Re: Bay Area short term job/suggestions/help

here is my 2 cents: if you're going to be in sonoma county, i honestly would not even bother with trying to pop down to SF (or OAK) , unless it's the weekend and you have all day (and maybe could consider staying overnight in the city). there is no fast, convenient, or pleasant way to get from anyw...

Re: Bay Area short term job/suggestions/help

Of course more affordable the further north you stay in Sonoma County but could understand why you'd want to be closer towards city for a short stint. Depends on which you'd rather deal with, work commute or longer city adventures. i'll probably "move" a couple times, so i'll stay close to the city...

Re: Bay Area short term job/suggestions/help

We stay in Marin often as we have relatives in Mill Valley and try to use the ferries from either Sausalito or Larkspur. We did have a car last trip since the folks were with us and didn't find the drive into SF that bad at all. Of course timing is everything. san rafael seems to be a good choice i...

Bay Area short term job/suggestions/help

I may be receiving a short term stint in the bay area (three weeks), and am trying to figure out where to live, i may find out today. The job is sonoma county, so i'll probably stay in the north bay due to bridges, etc, but may move around a couple of times. As for going to SF proper, taking the 101...

Re: Sporting Kansas City

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

i think KC still is, also, but a lot of people seem to be making a lot of noise about how this is not true anymore, or won't be soon. not sure if that is objectively accurate but this rampant perception of KC becoming a low-level nashville with attendant and fast-paced yuppification is not helpful-...

slightly out of date (from late august), but it shows how it's filling in the streetwall along kingshighway, something like the midwestern central park it was meant to be. there's still a few missing teeth...hope to have another tower fill the last big gap or two soon. this guy really will have rais...

i'm going to have to re-watch the movie parenthood, not even sure i've seen it. i'm sure the reference is NOT FLATTERING. ha. really weird that the movie was set in st. louis (although the late 80s was a golden age of films set in the midwest, particularly st. louis but primarily chicago) but filmed...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

i've said this elsewhere, but my main beef with STL is that the very real "cool factor" and abundant charm seems relatively outweighed by the "pain in the ass factor" of relatively bad traffic and attitude compared to KC or other cities. some cities are so cool and exciting it's worth an increase i...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

When I ask why outsiders who lived in STL left, the common answer is around tense/uptight people, not crime, and those who stay is for the job. this one could also be related to the fact that there is a massive boomer population in st. louis, and less a regional characteristic. people tend to be fa...
