If You Love Waiting In Line, You'll Love This

Posted By on Mon, May 5, 2014 at 3:48 PM

A wise person once said, "Waiting in line is a learned art and takes great patience." But rest assured San Franciscans, you're among the top tier when it comes to the skill of line waiting, and one clever, anonymous blogger has the pics to prove it!

SF Loves Waiting In Lines is a Tumblr blog dedicated to posting photos of the ridiculously long lines that people are willing to wait in just to get a little piece of S.F. novelty. The blog header reads: "Is that a line? Let's go wait in it!" a facetious statement that makes you second guess whether you want to be duped for a fool the next time you're encountered by a long line.

"Do you like ice cream? Well in 30 minutes you'll get some," was the tagline for the blog's first post, which is a photo of a line stretching from Bi-Rite Creamery to the street corner.

Another post sarcastically states, "It's a good time for beer @ Biergarten," displaying an obnoxious line of thirsty patrons salivating while peering through the chain-linked fence at stingy drinkers in Hayes Valley.

Can you guess what accompanied this caption: "Girls love the bathrooms at Dolores park"? That's right, criss-crossed legged girls waiting for open porta potties at Dolores.

The blog posts submissions from other Tumblr users as well, so if you have a Tumblr, and you're in a long line, the blog wants you to take a picture and share. But beware! Make sure you're the picture taker and not the one caught in line!

  • 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.'"
