While our previous discussion of The Bay Lights on San Francisco’s second-most famous bridge shared all the details about this awesome art installation with you, we knew we’d need to revisit the topic when we happened upon the photo below:
Sometimes a picture really is worth 1000 words!
[ad name=”300x250L”]We offer congratulations to flickr.com user David Yu for timing his visit and positioning himself perfectly on Twin Peaks – not an easy San Francisco landmark to get to, but what a view! – as the low fog embraced and engulfed the Bay Bridge in the distance. That’s gorgeous! (We also offer sincere appreciation to Mr. Yu for sharing this incredible photograph via Creative Commons so that we could share it with you.)
Festivities were recently announced to celebrate The Bay Lights’ first anniversary, including a “relighting” event on March 6, 2014. (An aside: It will be difficult to choose between “let’s hope it doesn’t rain like last year” and “let’s hope it rains because we need rain in California right now!”)
[ad name=”300x250R”]Some restaurants in the Embarcadero area – some of our favorite San Francisco restaurants, actually – are offering Dine & Shine specials for the entire month and donating a percentage of those purchases to a fund established with the hope of raising enough money to keep the Bay Lights on until 2026. (Presently, the installation is scheduled to end in March 2015.)
Please contact the Dine & Shine participants – Hotel Vitale, Coqueta, MarketBar, Americano Restaurant & Bar, Chaya Brasserie, Coqueta, Epic Roasthouse, Perry’s and Waterbar – directly to inquire about their March 2014 specials.
Here’s hoping you have the opportunity to travel to San Francisco for the Bay Lights installation – if not for anniversary celebration then at least at some point during the installation’s run!
And, really, weren’t you looking for a reason to visit San Francisco?
