The weekend is almost here, what should we do?

Friday: Rodriguez at the Warfield

The legend returns to SF! Perhaps he’ll have a helpful take on the shitshow the world has become of late. Let’s rock out to this song and buy tickets.

The annual tradition continues! Lots of bands, food and activities — and the above handy map gives you a quick idea of the scale of this year’s party. Read on for the full lineup.

Sunday: Brunch at Foxsister

We gushed about it at length last month, but basically all you need to know is benedict benedict benedict benedict AND the best new burger in town.

What kind of clown are you?

Benedict bonanza for brunch at Foxsister (also the Foxsister Burger is the new best burger in SF)

Screen Shot 2018-07-16 at 10.13.45 AM

(It’s weird, back in the day we would’ve written 10 posts about Foxsister by now, but this is our first. We go there all the time and recommend it to people all the time; we just don’t write blog posts very often anymore.)

Anyway, Foxsister rules, definitely check it out if you haven’t been. And also they just started doing brunch on Saturdays and Sundays 11am-3pm and the brunch is real good. I know it’s a long way til the weekend, but pencil it in now so you don’t forget — and start saving up appetite.

The fried chicken Benedict was REAL good, and the burger (only available at brunch) knocked our socks off. Plus the atmosphere (and four frozen drink options and cheap Hites) are perfect for brunchtime.

Here’s the menu:

New paint splotch remixes by local paint splotch remix artist Ariel Dovas

I saw this splotch on the ground somewhere near the Ramp the other day, I took a pic, and I sent it to the man, Ariel Dovas:

FullSizeRender

Within 20 minutes, he wrote back:

FullSizeRender-1

I asked what it’s called; he said “Homo-Globulous” and sent another:

“Positively ghastly,” I said. Thanks, Ariel!

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."
