Welcome to the Broberhood

The Financial District is the bro-iest neighborhood in San Francisco, reports

At least that's what data tech company FindTheBest found in a quantitative analysis of bro-ness, which, to be honest, is a pretty bro-ish task to undertake. According to SFGate, the company created a "Bro Index" based on "number of gyms, fitness centers, bars, liquor stores and adult entertainment establishments per capita, and the proportion of adults aged 20-34."

The Financial District, with 127 bars and 61 fitness centers per 10,000 people, topped the scale at 84.4 on the Bro Index. 

Nipping at the FiDi's topsider-shod heels are North Beach and the Marina. 

The analysis is based on a very particular idea of what it means to be a bro, and in San Francisco it might make more sense to include how many Apple Watch reviews a person has read, how much they're willing to pay for toast, and how many checked shirts they own. 

For those looking to avoid bros, tony Seacliff is the neighborhood of choice. Scoring just 16.4 on the Bro Index, Seacliff is where bros move when they're all grown up and ready to trade in their cornhole bags for golf clubs.

  • 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.'"
