A rare opportunity to eat some Bike Basket Pies pie tonight

Nattles from Bike Basket Pies makes an appearance in this new book Ms. American Pie, and they’re celebrating its release with an event tonight at Omnivore Books! Here’s what Nattles has to say:

My friend Beth is releasing a memoir & cookbook and is demo-ing pies & speaking at Omnivore Books this Friday, April 11th! I’ll be there with fresh baked Shaker Orange pies (my recipe is in her book, too!) Join us!

Can’t wait!

5,000 new songs added to the Nap’s Karaoke songbook

Good work, Shannon!

Nap’s Karaoke is tonight and every Thursday at Virgil’s.

If you’re going to the Future Islands show tonight

…arrive early enough to see opening act Ed Schrader’s Music Beat. Don’t look them up or listen to them first or anything. Just be there — and be ready for some serious shit.

(Especially if you paid $200 for your ticket on StubHub and really gotta get your money’s worth.)

Now let’s rock:

Whoa, check out Helen’s map of Golden Gate Park!

View it up close here. Get yourself a screenprinted copy here.

Is it bad that you’re dying to eat at La Movida just to eat the spaghetti Björk ate?

No way dude

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."
