First it was apartments, and now you can rent someone's boat that's docked in San Francisco.

We just discovered Boatbound, a San Francisco-based boat rental company that runs like AirBnB/VRBO -- San Francisco sailors rent out their yachts, catamarans (and we even saw a kayak!) to land goers. Many come with a certified captain, while others require you know some basic boating skills (Don't know what port and starboard are? Us either!).

We've never been on anything but a ferry across the bay, but we're open to yachting -- clinking some champagne flutes and pretending to live the high life while anchored near Tiburon. Although, we may end up more like Bob (I'm sailing! I'm sailing!).

  • 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.'"
