Here Comes the ‘San Francisco’ Super Bowl


Despite San Francisco’s utter lack of an NFL-grade stadium, the city by the bay somehow got stuck hosting the Super Bowl—or, at least, the official festivities surrounding Santa Clara’s big game. For the hundreds of thousands of San Franciscans who aren’t getting out of town—and aren’t NFL VIPs)—I edited a Super Bowl survival package, now out in the February issue of San Francisco magazine.

My small crack team of writers and I mapped the hoopla to help locals find the party (or steer clear of the congestion), delved into the economics of hosting a mega–sporting event, and sussed out whether the city really is shooing homeless people away from the Embarcadero, the site of the Super Bowl fan village. Check out the whole package here (PDF).
