Breaking Beretta Burrata Business at ‘bric8!

October 29, 2010

Not to be to be outdone, Beretta is getting in on this whole street food thing starting tonight at Fabric8 for their weekly cart meetup from 6-8pm.

Good thing the PizzaHacker wont be there tonight, otherwise there might have been a throwdown likes of which would have put last night’s Mission Bay McDonalds rumble to shame. On the other hand, their dish of choice will be the non-pizza eggplant caponatina with burrata.

This was #56 in the 2009 7×7 100 things to eat before you die, which I was working on before I realized that it had a lot of stuff that was not in the Mission and therefore difficult to work up the motivation to get to. It’s amazing and has impressed at least 3 eggplant haters I’ve known.

Halloween At The Secret Alley – For Real!

October 29, 2010

Okay. This is it. Since Halloween is this Sunday it’s kind of like having three solid Halloweens, starting tonight. The Secret Alley plans to open its spooky doors for all three.

Tonight we’ll be showing hours of your favorite animated halloween specials, including “Betty Boop’s Hallowe’en Party” (1933), “Hyde and Go Tweet”, “Lonesome Ghost” (1937), “The Fat Albert Halloween Special” and a bunch more. Stop by and hang a bit.

Saturday you can enter our costume contest when you come to listen to Surf Cinema, T.I.T.S., The Four Eyes, The Pyronauts and The Bananas! You have to come through the haunted laboratory to get there.

Finally, on Halloween proper, bring the little kids by for trick or treating! Yeah, it’s Capp Street, but still.

The Secret Alley is at 180 Capp Street, near 17th.

The skies over San Francisco were spooky and epic earlier this evening.

Nature always has the best special effects.
