As promised, Mayor Nutter wore a Giants hat Thursday to make good on a bet with  San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom over the outcome of the National League Championship.

Nutter wore the hat while serving breakfast to veterans at Impact Services Dual Diagnosis Program, which serves homeless veterans.

Nutter gave the hat, which arrived in Cty Hall in a box with no note, to one of the veterans. The mayor also placed wreaths at several memorials throughout the city in honor of Veterans Day.
