For the past few weeks the Banksy fever in the city of San Francisco has been absolutely insane. After we broke the story of the first Chinatown Banksy discovered we’ve dealt with hundreds of emails and tips alerting us to possible Banksy locations around the city.
We’ve followed up on some, traveled to others, and frankly we’re “Banksied” out. For those die hard fans though, there are 5 more Banksy locations, but only 4 you can visit. One unfortunately has already been sandblasted from the walls in the Mission.
Here is your guide to “The Lost Banksy’s of San Francisco 2010”

“Star Struck Rat in Glitter” – Banksy – Regency Ballroom – 1290 Sutter Street – c/o Regency Ballroom (which may we add is one of our favorite venues to get down).
