Nothing Says I Love San Francisco More Than a Hashtag

As if San Francisco needs more of an ego boost. The city that consistently ranks as the best in America now has another platform to show off just how awesome it really is -- you know -- just in case someone needs reminding.

More: San Francisco is Voted the Best

"There's no wrong way to love San Francisco" is the brain child of Oscar Nilsson, an advertising student at the Academy of Art who along with friends created the project as a way for people to capture the city's colorful and off-beat diversity that goes beyond the obvious Golden Gate Bridge postcard. The project is based on Instagram, where people can upload their own quirky photos and videos of the city by using the hashtag #nowrongwaysf. Selected postings are then shared in the main account @nowrongwaysf. The hashtag currently has over 3,000 posts ranging from the insanely cute (an uber-stylish dog on Haight in horn-rimmed glasses and to-die-for hoodie) to the just plain awesome (a guy in a wheelchair crowd surfing at Outside Lands). Okay, now we're just bragging.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
