Bay to Breakers Photos: Bulges, Boobs, & Booze (Still) – Accidental Bear
Is it a race? Is it a party? Is it an excuse to be naked in public? While plenty of people were competing in earnest—and we applaud them—we had our eyes set on the costumes and revelry that make each B2B a memorable one. We think we can officially say that SF does footraces better than everyone else.
It was a chilly day, so it amounted to less skin and overall nudity. More than any other year that I have seen, this was the most un-creative year by far. There seemed to be about 4 different outfits that everyone were wearing, penguin, SIA dancing girl, Bay Watch Life Guards, and the classes at every street fair girls dressing like sluts of any kind imaginable. And yes, even with the no alcohol rule everyone was fall drunk and sloppy. I even saw a guy drop a bottle of beer out of his costume onto the ground directly in front of a cop, and the cop just waved him on.
Frenchman's Beach is a beautiful beach Lots of fun. Lots of costumes. The pier is popular with photographers due to its robust T-shape and the backdrop of the Isle of Arran across the Firth of Clyde. Described as being only the second concrete pier in the world, it is thought to be about years old.
