Two hot chicks looking for holiday boyfriends

Hot on the heels of the viral success of the guy seeking a holiday girlfriend:

Two Girls, One Season. WANTED: Holidates – w4m – 26

Who we are: Two mid-twenties workaholics who didn’t have time to go to bars and dig through piles of shit to find men the last 11 months. Crap, here we are single, AGAIN, and Christmas is approaching.

What we look like (we know you want to know): We’re actually really hot chicks. Like you could have picked us out of a lineup for a CW teen drama. We can guarantee you won’t have a couple of butter-faces on your arm this holiday season. We do pilates. We go on bike rides. We yoga the shit out of our auras. Our asses can rock a cocktail dress all on their own and we have legs for dayz. One of us is tall and has a bangin’ volleyball player’s bod and the other is short and petite, like a magical Christmas elf. With a huge rack.

What we want: We need two guys (preferably two in a bromance to match our womance) to stick around for the holidays. Our love will be fake, but epic. We want to make everyone jealous. We will have Christmas cards that will make your mother cry. We’ll attend each other’s office holiday parties and be voted cutest couple(s), even if they don’t hold those kinds of contests at office holiday parties. Then we’ll get under mistletoes and makeout inappropriately in front of your coworkers.

UPDATE: They got a blog.

Indie rock beer festival at the Verdi Club this Saturday

Nicole from The Bay Bridged gives us the rundown on the first edition of The Bay Brewed:

This is our second NEW event of 2011 and I am really excited that this one is finally going to happen for real. The idea is this: you go to a beer festival and pay $60 to taste unlimited beers, which is great and all, but the music usually SUCKS. We decided why not bring down the ticket price, invite all the amazing local breweries (Lagunitas, 21st Ammendment, Anchor… list goes on), get sausages from Rosamunde, and then enlist AWESOME local bands. You and I both know that I would pay $45 to see Terry Malts any day of the week, but Weekend and Sleepy Sun are worth the ticket price alone. And you’ll leave with a Bay Brewed beer glass for keeps!

Buy tickets here.

CONTEST: Win tickets to A Winter Formal Dance at the Verdi Club

The Bold Italic and Dusty Stax are throwing an epic party at the Verdi Club weekend after next:

Join us by dressing sharp and celebrating a night of shakin’ your stuff with a live soul revue supergroup with a 9-musician strong backing band. The lineup includes an All Star Girl Group featuring Turn Up Records Recording artist Heidi Alexander (The Sandwitches), Shannon Shaw (Hunx and His Punx), Noelle Cahill (Magic Trick) and Jen Snyder (Jonesin’).

A few fellas will sing along too, including Sonny Smith of Sonny & the Sunsets, Kelley Stoltz, and your host Dusty Stax, crooning out favorites by Ike and Tina, Irma Thomas, and The Crystals to name a few. Dick Vivian (Proprietor of Rooky Ricardo’s Record Shop in The Lower Haight) will work the turntables with classic soul singles. He’ll also be offering instruction on how to dance like a pro!

Bites from one of our favorite pop-ups, Rice Paper Scissors, and libations will be available for purchase to keep you fueled for dancing the whole night long. We’ll start you out with a complimentary cocktail from Distillery No. 209. The ever-delicious Mission Minis will be there too, with free cupcakes in holiday inspired flavors to hit your taste buds at just the right angle.

And check out this strict dress code:

No denim will be permitted. For fellas: ties and collars are a must and leave those sneakers at home. Ladies: you know what to do… Just don’t forget your dancing shoes. And don’t stress about dates, stags and the like are welcome. 21 and over dance all night!!

Tickets cost $30 each, so if you’d like to win a pair for free, post a sneak preview of you in your outift on our Facebook wall. Contest ends Wednesday, December 7, 2011 at noon, when a winner will be chosen based on merit. Good luck!

Emo sucks ass or balls

Or maybe neither? These guys can’t seem to decide:

Show me your angry face

Show Me Your Angry Face

Angry art car spotted at 17th Bryant Florida and Mariposa.

A car salesman recently told me that almost all 2012 cars are built with angry “faces”* because market research shows that people want to project an angry image when they drive. Or something like that. I’m not really sure why people want it. They want to look fast and furious? He said that the main exception are the people who’re buying a Prius or other hybrid, they still want a happy (dopey) face.


*I’m not talking Pixar’s version of a car face, where the windshield is where the eyes are. I’m talking Nick Park’s version, where we all see the face, the headlights and grille. Speaking of which, don’t you think Pixar should have given out windshield shades with eyes on them to promote Cars 2?? Marketing done easy!

MateVeza, brewer of yerba mate-infused beers, to open brewery and restaurant across from Dolores Park

Last we heard of MateVeza, our pal Jane was hypothesizing that this strange drink might make a fair substitute for Four Loko. Now they’re coming to the Mission, more or less, according to this press release:

SAN FRANCISCO, November 29 – MateVeza is pleased to announce its intention to open “Cervecería de MateVeza,” a restaurant and small brewery dedicated to providing locally-sourced, Argentinian-style cuisine paired with creative artisanal beers. Cervecería de MateVeza will be located at 3801 18th Street on the northwest corner of Dolores Park in the Mission District of San Francisco.

MateVeza, an independent, San Francisco-based company that markets and sells a line of organic craft beers brewed with yerba mate, will use Cervecería de MateVeza as a creative test kitchen to develop and refine recipes that further enhance the culinary experience of pairing craft beer with fine food. MateVeza founder and San Francisconative Jim Woods will be returning to his homebrewing roots, brewing at the restaurant on a small 20-gallon copper system.
