Bay To Breakers!

This Sunday was the best holiday ever - the annual Bay to Breakers "race." Okay, so there are a lot of people who actually run this race, but mostly it's just an awesome excuse to dress in crazy costumes and roam through the city in a giant moving party. It's the one day a year when you can walk into pretty much anyone's house to use the bathroom, you can dance in the street to live garage bands, and everyone is your friend.

Dannon, Larry and I went as The Beastie Boys from the Sabotage music video. The best part was when the three of us went and stood next to a group of three real cops. We all looked very serious, of course. The cops actually knew exactly who we were and loved us!
There were lots of flying pigs ("Swine Flu"), Octomoms, pirates, naked people, Reno 911 cops, "Pink Slips," superheros, robots, crayons, etc.

There were also some floats like this luau float,

And a fireman float that was cooling down the crowd with water guns {it was crazy hot!}

You can go here to see some official pics of both the runners and the crazy costumes!

  3. LOL! Great costumes! We were looking all over for you, hoping we'd see you, but had to take off right after the race to make an airport pick-up. Love it though!
