Google's Favorite Places Awards: Strange-Looking and Subject to Graffiti

The Google award at Humphry Slocombe.
On Wednesday, SFoodie's Meredith Brody reported on Google mapping out Alice Waters' favorite places in the Bay Area. That same day, the tech company dropped off exclamation point-looking statues in front of the chosen places of Waters as well as the selections from the other San Francisco cartographers: Mayor Gavin Newsom, Michael Mina, Stanlee Gatti, Gary Danko, Elizabeth Varnell, Nate Valentine, Grant Washburn, Greg Farrington, Kevin Rose, Nate Query, Laura Morton, and Tiffany Shlain.

Mission Mission reports this morning that these heavy statues haven't been immune to vandalism: The award placed in front of the St. Francis Fountain (2801 24th St. at York) has been tagged with graffiti.
