EC students watch Warriors game in San Francisco

Happy Hour at Royal Exchange in San Francisco: Go Warriors!!!

Had a great time watching the NBA Western Conference Semifinals with students yesterday, 5/28/15.  We met at the Royal Exchange, a great bar in the Financial District of downtown San Francisco.  The hometown Golden State Warriors won the game on TV and advanced to the NBA Finals which start next Thursday, 6/4/15. It’s the first time in 40 years our basketball team has reached the Finals, and everyone at the bar and in the bay area was very excited.  Hopefully, the Warriors can bring home a championship!  EC SF staff and students will be watching with the rest of the locals–Go Warriors!!!  And if you’re near the Royal Exchange, try the Royal Punch, their signature cocktail featuring three different rums.  Delicious! Have fun outside of school and study ESL in San Francisco.

San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

This Game was full of drama since it  was between the two oldest rivals in baseball and again our team dominated it through the mist and fog shutting down Los Angeles 4-0 ! We took a tour around the stadium and checked out the right field from behind the players enjoying the only location in any baseball park in America where you could be 10 feet from the field and not pay a dime ! We also walked all around enjoying the different kinds of (yes , expensive ) food and children’s ballpark upstairs behind the bleachers.Everybody went wild when Buster Posey hit a homerun and started chanting ‘let’s go Giants!’ Go out into the city, have fun and study ESL in San Francisco.

EC joins San Francisco’s famous Bay to Breakers

The 12K race runs west through the city and finishes at the Great Highway along the Pacific Coast’s Ocean Beach. Participants run up the iconic Hayes Street Hill, along the Panhandle and through Golden Gate Park, while the city of San Francisco cheers them on. The third Sunday in May brings us “Bay to Breakers” the crown jewel of San Francisco events since 1912 with over 30,000+ people racing (and 100,000+ watching) from the Bay to the Breakers at the western end of Golden Gate Park in a costumed mass of everything we love about San Francisco. Bring your costumed, your semi-naked and your beer (try to be discreet) and participate in one of the largest races in America – one of the most strange and “San Francentric.” Have fun and study English in the USA.
