Per a longstanding tradition, when a San Francisco mayor leaves office, their portrait is hung at City Hall commemorating their service. Instead of Newsom’s typically clean-shaven mug, ex-mayor Newsom’s portrait revealed a picture of him wearing a Giant’s cap and full beard a la Brian Wilson.
A picture of the portrait, the ex-mayor, and Orange’s own Gene X Hwang ran in the Wednesday April 13, 2011 edition of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Hats off to Orange’s Vicki for lending her photoshopping skills to send the former mayor off with Giant style!
