Disgraced Senator Leland Yee’s Chinatown hangout as it was raided by the FBI yesterday.

The Post Yule Pyre at Ocean Beach is a Sunset tradition that goes back a number of years, and 2011 was no different. A group met at Java Beach on Sloat and proceeded to pick up a number of trees along the way to the beach. The trees would be dragged to the beach, ignited, and attract the attention of police. When police would drive to one fire, a group of  trees would scurry down the dunes to another bonfire and the ignition would be met with a raucous cheer to which the police would respond. This back and fourth went on for a little while until the police decided the fun was over. Overall another interested San Francisco event. @jweiand
