Basically I just wanted to have two butt posts in a row — but, rad that Yelp is really selling the sizzle, right?
Dolo Butt, n – a condition wherein the afflicted has a brownish stain on the seat of their pants from sitting on Dolores Park’s notoriously muddy grass. Ex: “You can tell Joan just came straight from the park. She’s got a mad case of Dolo Butt.”

How can YOU prevent dolo butt? Well, for one, you can make like Vic and bring along a bunch of paper shopping bags for you and your pals to sit on. What a nice guy!
According to the New York Times, fixies have just made their way to Paris. And apparently, Parisians are less snobby about them than we Americans:
In contrast with the hipper-than-thou attitude often associated with the bikes’ American acolytes, fixie riders can rightly be said to have a convivial scene in the French capital, where the bikes are as much activity as social marker. Despite the haughtiness for which this city is renowned, the community that has developed around them is uncommonly inclusive.
“There isn’t that element of snobbishness,” said Bruno Zuzzé, 33, the genial founder of Surplace, a come-one-come-all fixie club that organizes frequent group rides. Fixie owners often salute one another on the street, “like motorcyclists, back in the day,” he said.
Maybe we should all start high-fiving and fist-bumping one another on the street.
It’s like in John Carpenter’s Vampires when the vampires figure out how to perform that ancient incantation that lets them finally walk in the daylight — horrific!

I’m a teeny bit skeptical, because David Byrne is a seriously tough thing to reproduce, but two trusted sources recommended this show independently of each other, so there you have it.
(Thanks, Rob and Carina!)
We’re all really excited about how Berlin-style ping pong is taking the neighborhood by storm, and we’re really excited to have the entire Haçeteria crew on the decks this week, and we’re excited that this will be the final American Tripps before The Secret Alley undergoes a few interesting changes in October, and we’re excited that our official photographer this week will be none other than The Tenderloin Geographic Society herself!
