"Please don't call it Frisco" S.F. Nicknames / Pride Tip by USCgirlie

S.F. Nicknames / Pride, San Francisco: 11 reviews and 6 photos

The saying goes that, "Only thugs and bikers call it "Frisco." Whatever the case may be, most native San Franciscans find this nickname very degrading. Thus, when someone refers to the city as "Frisco," people immediately know that person is a tourist. Please just call it San Francisco or the City and you'll save yourself a lot of trouble!
