Carl Larson's wild Sunset partiesgreenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread
Somewhere a friend read about Carl Larson (he of the chicken ranch in the Sunset district) having a wild huge annual party with drunks passing out in the dunes and causing trouble. Apparently Larson was embarrassed by one particularly crazy shin-ding and put out a full-page ad apologizing to the City, and halted the party forever. I'd like to follow up on this for a story on our site (www.outsidelands.org).
Has anyone heard it? Know where my absent-minded friend might have read the tale?

Woody: When did these parties take place? They sound suspiciously like my high school "drink ups" of the 1960s -- astounding events usually held atop Strawberry Hill or at "the Circle" at the south end of Sunset Boulevard . . .
