Bay To Breakers – The End as We Know It

Well, it’s official. The Bay to Breakers as we all know and love is over. According to a recent posting on the ING Bay To Breakers website, there is now a zero tolerance policy to both alcohol and floats:

  • Zero tolerance policy on alcohol. Anyone openly drinking alcohol or displaying public drunkenness will be subject to fines and prosecution.
  • All wheeled objects and floats are prohibited. Inappropriate equipment on the streets is dangerous and can prevent runners and walkers from completing the race in a timely manner.


No floats? No alcohol? What do they expect us to do? Put on some New Balance shoes and ball-dangling runner shorts and actually run 8 miles? (actually I am okay with the ball-dangling shorts) Bay to Breakers without booze is like Peanut Butter without Jelly! Barry Bonds without steroids! The 71 Bus line without schizophrenics! Why don’t you just take Santa Claus away from Christmas while you’re at it?!

I have a feeling though, ING. Come May 17 San Francisco will show you what a Dutch Insurance Conglomerate really knows about trying to keep 75,000 San Franciscans from boozin’ at 8AM.

I suppose that this was all inevitable in a way… shenanigans of that size and absurdity can’t last forever.

Let’s just hope the nudey-nudes keep dingle-danglin’ along doing their thing.


No more Mustache Ride Float?!!
