This is a typical weekend brunch crowd at some of the restaurants in my neighborhood.
|My-My Coffee Shop, 1500 California at Larkin|
|Toast Eatery, 1601 Polk at Sacramento|
A friend of mine thinks that many of them are put-off by the numerous languages and cultures of this polyglot city. Coming from mono-lingual/racial environment myself, I know San Francisco can take some getting used to.
These people have also been labelled the most self-absorbed, navel-gazing generation in history of mankind. That rings a bell…I've heard that before...now I remember! That was how my generation, the 60s’, was described – the most self-absorbed generation in the history of mankind! Where will this country be 50 years from now? Hell-in-a-handbasket, that’s where! Just you wait! ...
And here we are.
May this label be as pointless to your generation as it was to mine.
