since this is as exciting as miniature golf gets in sweden, my hopes were not too high when rhea suggested it a while back. but then again, i forgot that this is san francisco. ‘murica etc.
yes. so this is urban putt in the mission. there is a bar just as you walk in (promising at first sight, hehe). mostly since this was a mid-day sunday, no drinks for us.
ok, so we were greeted at the first hole by the painted ladies. was all ”???” about this because eh looks like an amusement park??
check out this hole. too cute.
me and rhea were pros. (no, we were not. we did okay.) do you see the bright corner to the right of the picture here? this was some kind of interactive hole, where you took a swing at the ball, and then you saw it fly digitally on the screen, through hoops and obstacles. a little like a nintento wii. very cool.
the obstacle for one hole was the transamerica pyramid. someone put some SERIOUS effort into building this entire place i tell ya!
under water-themed holes with octopus and blacklight. oooo
check out this one! this was some kind of rube goldberg machine of the miniature golfs. you hit the ball unto a lift (not pictured) that transported the golf ball up to the ceiling. then it was dropped down here, on to drums and other types of percussion! so you got a little jingle as it fell down. VERY cool.
such a fun afternoon experience. —> : D
also great to get to hang out with this lady before she moved back to new york (as perhaps ALL of my friends do right now ghghh)
a great tip for you sf people who have a free sunday afternoon or who just want to get the fun started a little earlier on a saturday. or anyone.
kolla det här jäkla minigolfstället nere i the mission! som svensk så ser jag liksom nåt annat framföt mig när jag visualiserar *minigolf* inför mitt inre, så detta var typ ????. som ett jäkla nöjesfält typ! jag och gulliga rhea (också från apple) var där en söndag och det var såå sköj. alla banor var så himla fint påhittade. med små miniatyrer av byggnader, uv-lampor, grejer som rörde på sig och blinkade och jag vet inte vad. första gången en minigolf har överträffat mina förväntningar. och det med RÅGE : )
