The Locals At 7

Photo by Cake Crumbs Owner Katie Magner

   In October, The Locals celebrated seven years of hanging out at Cake Crumbs on Kearney Street. The Locals, who are also called by some the “Council of Elders,” aren’t a rock band – though they probably could be if they wanted. Rather, they are a group of longtime Park Hillians with a strong commitment to, knowledge of, and appreciation for the neighborhood. They gather weekly, sometimes more than once (and some show up more often than others). Over coffee and pastries this collective brain trust dissects matters large and small, and generally solves most, if not all, of the problems of the world.
