Bacon-wrapped hot dog guacamole, a recipe

First you have an epic night out on a Friday or Saturday, mostly in the Excelsior because who the hell wants to party in the Mission on a Friday or Saturday. (The burgers and fries at Pissed Off Pete’s are the bomb btw.) And then you crawl your way back, stopping to do another shot at Cotter’s Corner, St. Mary’s Pub, El Rio and maybe Mission Bar. And then you hit the dance floor at Last Nite for an hour. And then you buy two bacon-wrapped hot dogs, to go, on the way home. You put them in the fridge.

And in the morning you do this:

And then you pop that mess in with the avocado and take it to the Guac-Off and give it a cool name:

(A name so good it’ll win the “best name” category and a tote bag with coupons for free Wes Burgers and tickets to Thee Oh Sees at the Chapel inside.)

Here’s a closer look:

Mmmmmmmmmmm it was so good. Probably would’ve won if it weren’t competing with Michael Connolly and Rocky Yazzie.

Whoa, is that a Surge tallboy?

Drinkin’ Surge in 2014! We’re gonna need some 3D Doritos and crispy M&Ms with that.

Drinks sure are cheap in other cities

Consider this Facebook update from a friend of mine in another city:

Your missing journal entry from 2007

I hope you finally got to take that road trip.

Our pal Logan just invented something wild:

A kaleidoscope and a postcard fell in love and had beautiful babies that you can buy for $10. Send them to your friends!

Kaleidograms are brand new. They reveal a message in colors or shapes when held up to the light. Slide it between your fingers, and with a satisfying *click*, the message will change before your eyes.

Seven designs to choose from!

I guess we’re just gonna keep having beautiful days forever

Knock on wood.

The bad old days

In the comments section of our post from last week about long-gone Mission rock club 12 Galaxies, reader Skyscraper offers another little remembrance:

I miss that place! I worked there from ’05-the end. We used to play pool and poker til the cleaners showed up and then go to clooney’s.

Oh the bad old days…

What is Austin like?

Our pal Corntard overheard one important theory:

Yeah but with Bill Murray, and Aziz.

(Bender’s rules!)
