Mark Your Calendars: Next Divisadero Art Walk on June 4th

by Andrew Dalton on May 4, 2010

If you’re semi-decent at math, you could probably figure out that the next Divisadero Art Walk is going to be on Thursday, June 4th. But since these things always get us super excited around here, we’re feeling the need to point out that our friends behind the every-three-months cheap(er) booze session have officially updated their [...]

In case you were planning on hitting Free Movie Night at the Independent tonight, be aware that you might come face-to-face-to-iphone with some Yelpers getting their pre-Bay To Breakers groove on. (Sorry, 30 Seconds to Mars won’t be playing.) The social reviews site is sponsoring tonight’s Double Feature of movies about Steven Prefontaine, which means [...]

Whoops, Almost Forgot It’s April 20th.

by Andrew Dalton on April 20, 2010

This isn’t the first time this happened. Last year on 4/20 I went for a jog through Golden Gate Park, leaving my apartment at roughly 4pm, only to stumble upon Hippie Hill packed with bridge-and-tunnel stoners eager to spark up at 4:15. (It’s the spiked haircuts, Famous Stars & Straps T-shirts, and girls in short-shorts [...]

Did We Just Get Profiled by the Census Bureau? I Think We Just Got Profiled by the Census Bureau

by Andrew Dalton on April 16, 2010

Have you filled out your census form? I hope so, because if you haven’t then NPR will probably lump you in with these assholes in Williamsburg, Brooklyn who are apparently an authority on why 20-somethings in their neighborhood aren’t returning the forms. If you’ve been watching the Colbert Report you probably caught this gem of [...]

Expanding Divisadero’s Pizza Horizons

by Andrew Dalton on April 13, 2010

Yesterday, homegirl Tablehopper got so excited that a new pizza place was opening in the former home of Metro Kathmandu that she could hardly wait to get out a proper internet email blog about it.

Tag! You’re It, McKinley! KKKatie1 Grows Stronger By the Day

by Andrew Dalton on April 13, 2010

Look out, pobrecito, KKKatie1 (or is it KKKattey?) has been popping up around the neighborhood, but we neglected to post photos because an endless stream of graffiti pictures does not an interesting blog make.
Anyhow, we started noticing her (presumably she’s a she) work on DPT’s flashing-light sawhorse things that were standing guard over some [...]

Rumors CONFIRMED: Vodka Sucks

by Andrew Dalton on April 12, 2010

We somehow missed this post the other day (SORRY) on GrubStreetSF about San Francisco mixologists hating on vodka. (By the way, wake me when we can stop calling them mixologists.) Ignoring for a moment all the nutty words like and “herbaceousness” and “cocktailians” that they managed to pack in to this post (P.S. during [...]

Actual Street Food Makes it to the Neighborhood

by Andrew Dalton on April 6, 2010

This guy with a hot dog cart keeps popping up in front of The Independent on busy nights, presumably to sell foot-longs to Umphreys McGee/STS9 Bros. Last night he was out slinging tube steaks to all the people who rolled in to catch the NCAA Championship/Fantastic Mr. Fox. (Sidenote: Yes, please, on more sporting events [...]

Additional Hot Chicks at Art Openings

by Andrew Dalton on April 6, 2010

Mike Giant posted some photos from his art opening/friend’s brithday party at Bender’s last week, which I know isn’t technically in the neighborhood, but Giant was our neighbor for the lognest time, so I’m contractually obligated to post photos from any of his events. It’s not so bad when they’re gems like the one of [...]
