Marina Girl defined

Saw this on SFist / prosaic:There is a hilarious description of the “Marina Girl” on Wikipedia. The definition is very elaborate. Here’s just a portion of it…

“…When a Marina Girl turns 30, as the majority of the population is, she goes from being known as a Marina Girl, aka Turf, and is now a “Cougar”[2]. A few places in the Marina with a high saturation of Cougars are Balboa Cafe, Cozmo’s, the California Wine Merchant, and the aforementioned Marina Safeway.”

The definition of the Marina Male is equally brutal:

“He usually wears the fashions found in Banana Republic, The Gap, or Ralph Lauren. Collared, stripey dress shirts, with varying patterned cuff usually worn tucked-into pants during the week are usually kept untucked on weekends (aka The Marina Party Shirt), in conjunction with a pair of casual Diesel Jeans, Seven, AG or True Religion jeans or zipper sweaters.”

  1. of course, and attend yoga sessions. marina girls claim that yoga clears out their “chi,” but i think they’re just too high maintenance to sweat it out on a treadmill in a regular gym. ^_^
