is full of light. The lead doorman at the Sir Francis Drake hotel on Powell
Street, Sweeney is among the first handful of San Franciscans many visitors
meet. With his love of the City, vibrant personality, and sincere interest
in folks, he is more than a model of good will and service. Sweeney is
an eternal San Franciscan. Someone once asked Mister SF "Why's this guy
so famous?" Because he likes his job! Sweeney, who's been at his post for
more than 25 years, has shaken hands with five U.S. presidents and is sometimes
photographed hundreds of times a day.
