NOPA Neighborhood Association Meeting Tomorrow

by Andrew Dalton on January 20, 2010

Not sure how many people actually go to NOPNA’s monthly general meetings, but I keep getting these facebook notifications, so maybe someone other than myself is interested. It looks like they’ll be discussing a new Pot club at 350 Divis which I’m sure is a cause we can all rally behind. And there will also [...]

Say Hello to Your New District 5 Supe: “Juice Box”

by Andrew Dalton on January 20, 2010

The other day, SFWeekly ran a post about nicknames, the Jersey Shore, and the city’s Supervisors. If you’ve been religiously hate-watching (secretly love-watching) MTV’s Jersey Shore for the past month then you know these kids are totally nuts with these bizarre social rituals that make them difficult to recognize as being part of the same [...]

Nash Bridges Revisited: Episode 2: Home Invasion

by Andrew Dalton on January 15, 2010

In what might eventually prove to be a feeble attempt at connecting with his adopted city, Andrew is watching every episode of Nash Bridges’ inaugural season. His analysis of this once-popular television program can be found here and on the  SFAppeal every Friday until the SF Public Library makes him return the DVDs. If  you [...]

Alas, Poleng Lounge, We Hardly Knew You

by Andrew Dalton on January 13, 2010

Look, I know that’s not how the quote goes, I watched all four hours of Kenneth Branagh’s Hamlet. NOT THE POINT. The point is Poleng announced today (via Facebook, barf) that 2009 was a little rougher for them than we thought. So the end of January will bring the end of Poleng. This is terrible! [...]

Popeye’s Runs Out of Chicken

by Andrew Dalton on January 12, 2010

Well, it’s Tuesday and you know what that means? $0.99 2-piece at Popeye’s. But remember! Be timely, because things can start to get nasty when they run out of chicken. Just look at what happened at these fine Popeye’s locations:

Meet Your Neighbor: Merkley???

by Andrew Dalton on January 12, 2010

In Broke Ass Stuart’s regular “Broke Ass of the Week” feature the titular editor profiles our delightfully bizarre photographer-neighbor Merkley??? (That’s not a question, that’s how he writes his name.) Besides throwing a couple curveball answers to Stuart’s form-letter questions, the interview lets us know he lives in Alamo Square/Lower Haight, which (for me at [...]

Watch Your Neighbors Watching Movies

by Andrew Dalton on January 11, 2010

This interesting little map shows what people are renting on Netflix in the 94117 and comes to you via SFHaps and a corresponding article on the NYTimes.
I feel like Milk is totally unsurprising, not because this is San Francisco and everyone loves seeing places they’ve been on screen, but because all the straight white people [...]

by Derek Bradley on January 11, 2010

So go out and celebrate tonight at Madrone and ask for their extra special Hot Toddy. They make it with their own homemade apple-cinnamon [...]

BREAKING [Not Breaking] Sniper Menaces Alamo Square

by Andrew Dalton on January 8, 2010

JUST KIDDING. There’s not a real sniper in Alamo Square, instead there’s just another ridiculous incredible plot to an upcoming episode of Trauma. (Seriously, how are they still filming this?)
SFAppeal, being somewhat more legitimate than ourselves, reports that filming is going on all day today from 7am – 8pm, so if you live around [...]
