Feast on the food of the Indonesian archipelagos TONIGHT


Dammmmmmmmn how good does that look??? Chef Deborah tells us about her special event tonight:

Nusantara is a contemporary Indonesian term for the Indonesian archipelago. Taken from an oath by Gajah Mada in 1336, Nusantara means “outer islands”. Based on the Majapahit concept of state includes; East Java, Madura, Bali, South Sumatra, Singapore, East Timor and Southern Thailand.

The food that I will represent speaks of those countries and how much we influence each other.

Dinner will be held at The Tradesman in the Mission district, a contemporary yet elegant space.

Tickets and more info here.

No more momentarily mistaking this place for a burger joint

FullSizeRender 12 copy 2

Remember, corner of 20th and York, across from Jay ‘n’ Bee, used to be a salon called L’Burget I think? With a big “L’Burget” on the sign? And so every time you’d go past it, even after the like 1000th time, you’d still momentarily think maybe it was a burger joint? Remember?

(Now the only danger with the new sign is you might momentarily think it’s Lil Tuffy’s house.)

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."

— My pal Valerie, writing about life in the Mission
