Seinfeld episode predicted how guys would look in 2016 or so

Funny thing is, it’s the episode where Jerry gets a bad haircut (and wears a hat to cover it up):

I see that haircut AND that hat around the Mission all the time these days! Right??

Bonus: Newman gag at the end precursor to recent developments on Last Man on Earth?

The best sandwich in SF is Pink Zebra’s “Crokune”

Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 11.00.11 AM

It’s a skewer of tsukune (chicken meatball), hot off the yakitori grill, and they pop it on an everything croissant (by Neighbor Bakehouse in the Dogpatch), along with some tasty sauce! It’s the best! I could’ve eaten four in a row, but I only had two, and then I just dreamed about it for a rest of the weekend, and I wish I could have another one right now. It’s the best sandwich in SF!

Problem is, Pink Zebra‘s yakitori popup is only every now and then, so keep an eye on their Instagram for dates and times.

Practicing maximalism

Mai explains her outfit to local fashion blog SF Looks:

I’m currently practicing maximalism (a la Gucci) as a reaction to a prevailing minimalist style. This outfit is more tame than others [...]

Hunger strike, one week in

Screen Shot 2016-04-28 at 1.54.57 PM

Mission Local reports:

The day after a group of hunger strikers held a rally outside the Mission District police station that saw more than 100 people chant for the firing of the city’s police chief, the group of nine began the seventh day of their fast – tired but determined.

“We’re getting pretty weak,” said Edwin Lindo, a candidate for District 9 supervisor who has camped outside of Mission Station for a week to demand that Police Chief Greg Suhr be fired or resign. Lindo briefly fainted on the second day of the strike, and an ambulance pulled up to the strikers on Wednesday morning to monitor their vitals.

“We’re getting low on blood sugar,” Lindo said.

Mayor Ed Lee responded to the hunger strike for the first time on Tuesday, saying the strikers had a right to protest but that he would not fire the chief and that he intended to allow current departmental reform plans to proceed. Chief Suhr also responded and said he had no intention of resigning.

Biographical Info:

"I joked that living in the Mission would be the end of me. And there were nights where it felt like the case.

One night I went out with my friend Allan to the bar that no one goes to on 16th Street, where I lost half my drink and money on the dance floor. Later we skated down 16th to Evelyn Lee, where I fell off my board and landed on my head as the 22 bus sped past behind me. A sobering moment. At the bar, I sulked and nursed my wounds until Allan put on Amy Winehouse’s 'Valerie.' We danced, he dipped me, and I felt better."
