Where In San Francisco is Edward Sugimoto? - September 30, 2009

September 30th, 2009
By

Last week, hemajangshowed off his recognition skeelz by correctly guessing Liliha Bakery from a photo of condiments. How the!? Please help me congratulate bruddah hemmaz.

Much like our Philly version of WIHIES, we'll make this week's contest a lil' more challenging and make y'all guess on more than just 1 photo. This time, we gots 6! Oh yeah! Perhaps it'll last longer than an hour now? :P Ah, we shall see...

Like before, no worries. Even if you've never been to Frisco, I'll have hints for each photo. Using Googs and the rest of the `ohana's guesses will help some lucky winnah solve the puzzle that is WIH, er WISF. Go getum cuz!

Hints: (Photo 1) - The background does not reflect the sign. I'm looking for what it says on the sign. 8) (Photo 2) - P2P. (Photo 3) - SoMa. (Photo 4) - I dunno. Read the sign for a hint? (Photo 5) - Hmm... I shouldn't make it that easy should I? (Photo 6) - Statue has nothing to do with the location, but perhaps it counts as "eye candy" for rayboyjr:P

  3. hemajang:

    Thanks Kage, me too, haven't been to SF in 20 years so CW's response looks good to me.


  4. kuya.d:

    CW represent! ... #6 is ummm, I have no idea.


  5. matt:

    I guess I'll leave myself out of this one. kinda cheating.


  6. Paco:

    Wow! Coconut Willy get 'em I think. I only knew #2 and #6 for sure and Willy guessed it.


  7. che:

    This is bad. I think #6 is Ghiradelli Square but i have no clue for the others.


  8. M:

    Good morning Ed! :)

    I haven't been to SF enough to figure out the pictures.

    I any know #2 and Coconut Willy got it already.

    Congrats to hamajang!


  9. zzzzzz:

    WWE--Frisco is a town in Colorado. Bay Area locals don't use that term for SF. It's "the city."


  10. M:

    Opps, I only know #2......


  11. skycastles:

    #3 - Yerba Buena Gardens - MLKJ Memorial


  12. kako mochi:

    maaan!! i was there a few weeks ago (as you know) - but it was only during the late afternoon and into the night, so i didn't do much sight seeing :( definitely #2 is pier 39...and the rest ~ IDK!! can i submit some of my pics?! LOL!!


  13. NeedaHobby:

    Congrats to hemajang. I've only been to SF once, small kid time ... so I have no clue!


  14. EMM386:

    Never been to San Fran, so I wouldn't know. I saw the pinnipeds on TV before, so I know they are in SF, but I wasn't really paying attention as to where.


  15. frankie:

    Crap, someone beat me to it!


  16. rayboyjr:

    :D :D :D Good Morning!!! :D :D :D

    ... EYE CANDY!!! ... just exactly what kind of sicko do you think I am??? ... now if the mermaid wasn't holding a baby mermaid ... then we might have something ... ;) ....

    ... nah, nice try Ed! ... but I don't have a thing for mermaids or stone carvings ... unless you talking about the other picture ... with the platforms filled with sun-soaked, NEKKID, frolicking ... ... ... ... ... SEALS!!! ... :shock: ... and I don't have a thing for them either!!! ...

    ... anyway ... CW's got a lock on this game ... from what I found, I'm pretty sure he's got them all ... the first one is the only one I can't verify ... oh boy, can't stump CW ... maybe you gotta put pictures of outer space or something ...

    Have a Good One Everyone!!!


  17. carokun:

    Congrats to CW. I haven't been back to SF since '05. But I lived in the Oakland/Piedmont border area of the east bay back in '99 - '03. Ahhhh the memories. :)


  18. J.P.:

    Man, the pictures bring back memories...and I was at all these places 3 months ago, too!! Can't wait to go back or move there for graduate school (if I can get in).


  19. snow:

    i absolutely LOVE san francisco! i think CW's got 'em... again! darn, he's good. i've just never seen #3... never been to moscone center... was too busy shopping and eating! ;)


  20. Rosette:

  21. uncle jimmy:

  22. Rosette:

  23. kuya.d:

    WWE - I'm surprised there's no food pix.


  24. mcat:

    Yup, I usually queue up the bloggies at 12AM midnight. 41 minutes is actually a long time for Dubbs. Maybe he took a 40 minute nap before checking it out? 8)

    * 26.Coconut Willy:

  29. matt:

    WWE, living in San Mateo now. some of those places are within walking distance from my wife's office.


  30. Coconut Willy:

    Wow, I wasn't sure on a few of them. It's been about 5 years since i've been to SF. I sometimes work on Tuesday nights and get home around midnight. I guess my perk for working late is I get to see your blog first.


  31. kuya.d:

    @CW and @sky - nice job!

    @matt - lucky guy!
