Banksy Fever Continues!

May 2, 2010

Are we over Banksy Fever? Ariel Dovas thinks “maybe”, but our top posts list says, “nope”.

Well, maybe it’s just Banksy Light-Cough at this point, but two new alleged Banksy pieces were discovered this weekend in places San Franciscans don’t go to very often: North Beach and Alcatraz:

On Columbus and Broadway

On Alcatraz Island (!!!)

Finally, it looks like the folks who were blessed with Banksy’s “doctor” piece have realized it’s artistic merit (or business potential) and started cleaning up the vandalism it suffered last week at the hands of otter and others:

Popcorn Party

May 2, 2010

Bay Area Bites on Friday published a rundown of popcorn quality at a number of Bay Area movie theaters. They had some nice stuff to say about the Roxie:

They make fresh popcorn every night, popping it in peanut oil instead of the more commonly used canola oil. They also offer real butter as a topping and charge $4.50 for a large tub, the least expensive tub of popcorn in the survey.

AND Jennifer Hudson has something to do with it (unless this 3-year-old photo is out of date). Read on.

(Thanks, Brittney!)

UPDATE: Indeed, the Roxie says, “If you haven’t been in to see who is gracing the small, medium and large portions lately, you need to rectify that.”

Penelope Popsicle just found this, the first phrase we’ve seen that might be able to compete in the same league with TOLD YO ASS!

Action in the Streets

Again, tell me they were filming a movie or something and this wasn’t all some kind of violent result of Kevin Montgomery’s nerd mixer clashing with the Self Edge denim bonanza. (Kevin and Kiya are not the best of friends.)
