Would be cool if in addition to the question for "city by the bay," there was another for, "bay city."

The only one I missed was the "Brahmin" question. Lived in Boston for five years and never heard that term once, so I assumed it must be San Francisco.

13/15. I missed the Brahmin question and the Logan Airport. Worst part is that I landed there one day. Nonetheless, great quiz, Quizmaster. Keep doin' what you're doin'.

Being born and raised in The City, you might think this was a snatch for me. But that was 1946 so I still have an excuse.

There could have been a question about the Charles St. Jail/vs Alcatraz or MBTA/vs BART or cable cars vs. something.

I saw Brahmin and just thought, well is starts with a B and ends with an N, so it must be Boston.

It was the only one I missed. I didn't know and figured it could go either way, but guessed wrong. Hopefully I'll remember that factoid in the future.

Hopefully you do, I just did a bunch of 50/50 for most of these questions and I got the UN charter correct :)
