The Yin and Yang of Sandwich Perfection

Kelly Niland today had lunch at Pal’s Take Away, and lucky for us she took the time to deconstruct her asparagus-and-egg sandwich and photograph it before tucking in. Link.

Highway Sick With A Tank

April 29, 2009


Today on Fashionist, asked to describe her style philosophy, the girl on the left responds, “Highway sick with a tank. Loosen it up, baby.”

I like it, but was something lost in transcription? If not, what in god’s name does she mean? Link.

Slo-Mo Dolores Park (Video)

April 29, 2009

Just what I need on a blustery Wednesday afternoon: Some slow-motion video of people relaxing in Dolores Park on a calm Sunday afternoon, set to French electronic music.

Thanks, Wesley!

Ryan Farr on Swine Flu

April 29, 2009

All jokes aside, pandemics are serious business, so we asked Ryan Farr of 4505 Meats to comment on how the current looming threat might affect this weekend’s Pig Out party. Ryan says:

The swine flu is some scary shit, I hope all is contained soon and no more lives are lost.

It’s so vital to support small farmers, heritage breeds, antibiotic free, hormone free and meat that has been fed no animal sourced protein.

This is what so many people in the Bay and beyond are all about and we will continue to send that message… Support small farmers and heritage breeds!

Since last week I have received emails from folks saying how excited they are to join us at the Pig Out and learn more about the Red Waddle. So to answer your question… No, I don’t think that the Swine Flu has affected the Pig Out. People want to know their meat, want to know how to butcher and handle it. It’s a beautiful thing, i am very lucky and excited to be apart of it. Sunday is going to be a blast, great people and great pig = hell of a good fucking time.

The party takes place this coming Sunday at Coffee Bar and includes great food, great beer and a live butcher demo! Get to know your meat!

Economic Downturn Good For Karaoke?

Karaoke aficionado Megan checked out the scene at Amnesia last night and had this to say:

Just occurred to me: rampant unemployment = longer waiting lists at weeknite karaoke. Wack.
