Explaining Foursquare to The Olds, A Hard-Hitting Report

by Andrew Dalton on March 23, 2010

Our friend (I think?) Brittney Gilbert, she of Eye on Blogs and Foursquare Mayor of Hamburger Haven (where ever that is), had the great honor of explaining the “game” of Foursquare to her coworker in this video from CBS5, which I’m told is a channel on the TV, but I couldn’t find it on Hulu.
The [...]

Neighborhood Fried Chicken Round-Up [Via the Twitster]

by Andrew Dalton on March 18, 2010

For whatever reason, there seems to be a great deal of Fried Chicken news in the neighborhood today. All of which comes to us via twitter, appropriately enough. First off NOPA wants you to know about their rotisserie chicken (technically not fried, but whatever):

Magnolia brings us their own fried chicken report:

And we can’t talk about [...]

Gavin’s Hair Makes an Appearance at Mojo

by Andrew Dalton on March 18, 2010

Despite all the attempts at sabotage this morning, Mayor Hairsom came to the neighborhood this morning to check out the new parklet at Mojo. (Presumably, he didn’t take the 21-Hayes.) Standing on recycled-material flooring and surrounded by hard-to-kill plants, solar powered garden lights, and a couple of bike racks he congratulated everyone involved on [...]

21-Hayes Knocks Out Neighborhood Power [Broken News]

by Andrew Dalton on March 18, 2010

The power’s out! News, you guys! The 21-Hayes pulled down a telephone pole at Hayes and Baker, which shorted out the grid in the neighborhood. The police officer I spoke with said it was a couple block radius, but the power has been out at my place at Masonic and Fulton since 9am. Some spots [...]

Mike Giant Wrote Some Names of Bars on a Sheet of Paper

by Andrew Dalton on March 17, 2010

And it’s awesome. And I want one. And it’s got all the neighborhood favorites. And Pop’s and Bender’s are on there so some other sites are totes gonna blog about it. I’m just guessing.
More of Mike Giant’s new works on Skullz Press and if you want one, you’ll have to head down to his party [...]

Hey, Look How Green We Are [Photo of the Day]

by Andrew Dalton on March 16, 2010

It’s all spring-y outside and the best part of Divis (between McAllister and Fell, duh) is looking pretty sharp. Ignore the fact that I was obviously crouching in the median, trampling the greenery while taking this photo. At least I can definitively say that there’s no dogshit there.

Let’s Get This Parklet Started

by Andrew Dalton on March 15, 2010

Look, guys, I’ll admit I was a little skeptical when this whole pavement-to-parks movement got started. I was a big fan of PARKing Day, mostly because they set up a croquet court on 2nd street by my old office in SOMA and nothing’s better than skipping work to sit in an astro-turfed parking space like [...]

Sean Penn Kicked Out of Oscar Party, Still Welcome at Madrone

by Andrew Dalton on March 8, 2010

I never thought I’d be linking out to that detestable piece of garbageblogging that is Perez Hilton, but the day after the Oscars means his interns are extra busy photoshopping jizz onto other people’s photos. Apparently last night Penn got kicked out of an Oscar party for punching a The Hurt Locker producer in [...]

Nash Bridges Revisited: Key Witness [Season Finale!]

by Andrew Dalton on March 5, 2010

Here we are at the end of Season 1! We made it! Although, to be honest, they probably should have ended the first season on Nash’s vacation to Hawaii so he could properly celebrate letting one of the top ten most wanted criminals in the country off the hook and losing a very important piece [...]
