The Magician in SF

I don’t know quite what to expect from this show, but the poster art is awesome. And more importantly, The Magician is at least partially responsible for this, which I think is basically the best song of all time:

Get tickets here.

Rainbow Grocery Cafe to grandly open this Friday!

Rainbow‘s little cafe is finally here! The party is all day long, and there’ll be free samples and vendors such as Stumptown Coffee and Starter Bakery will be doing demos:

We have worked with Stumptown Coffee Roasters to learn how to brew their highest quality (and most ethically grown) beans with the most delicious results possible. We will offer brewed coffee as well as a variety of espresso drinks off our beautiful La Marzocco espresso machine. An unparalleled selection of teas from our large Bulk Tea selection will be available. We use Strauss organic whole milk in all steamed drinks and offer Pacific Unsweetened Almond milk as a non-dairy alternative. Our menu includes fresh baked pastries from Starter Bakery.

The cafe is open Monday-Saturday 8am-6pm and Sunday 9am-3pm.

Local’s Corner defaced again

And they’re not open for lunch anymore, so nobody’s shown up to clean it up yet.

I thought they might cut the guy some slack after he admitted calling it Local’s Corner was a bad idea, but nope.

(Thanks, Jess and Camille.)

Go Giants!

Kanye West fan art by local artist Adam Thorman

This is definitely the best piece of Kanye fan art I’ve seen since Kanye West as Nobunny.

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."
