Guys! Memorial Day Weekend starts tomorrow! Unless you added this story to Pocket and are reading it the Friday after Memorial Day Weekend, in which case... Guys! A different, also-weekend starts tomorrow! Either way, there's a very, very good chance that, with summer officially underway, you're going to want to celebrate the glorious, partly cloudy, high-50s, 20% chance of rain SF summer with a beach bonfire. Okay, so maybe not this weekend, and maybe not the weekend after you read this on Pocket, but some weekend. (Hopefully. Please God.)
When you do, you'll be glad you saved this: the only guide to doing a bonfire on a San Francisco beach that requires zero merit badges.
