It may not exactly feel like the first day of summer weather-wise today, but over in Potrero Hill, they're acting like it, with a giant Slip'N Slide covering one of the big downhill slopes there. Our co-worker Jana Phillips captured the water slide on film, and says she thinks it's there as part of a commercial for Bare Naked Granola. She also believes that anyone can have a go on the thing – but to be sure, you might want to head over to Potrero Hill yourself. 

And it seems like just yesterday when we were fantasizing about a Slip'N Slide on Lombard St. Dreams do come true in San Francisco.
