Please help us find our BELOVED Yorkie, Winnie. Our car was broken into today and she was stolen along with loose change. We’re guessing they think she is a valuable puppy but she is 12 years old and needs special care. I have had her for all 12 years, took her everywhere with me and my heart is absolutely breaking. PLEASE PLEASE be on the look out. She’s tan and silver and black, 4lbs and still looks like a puppy. Stolen from 26th St. and Valencia in the Mission District. Please call with any information. REWARD!
This week’s Drink of the Week is a variation, which we tried last night for the first time. Instead of the draft Drake’s Imperial Stout, we used the new Narwhal Imperial Stout from Sierra Nevada. And instead of Fernet Branca, we used Fernet Lazzaroni (purchased over the weekend at Royal Cuckoo Market, along with some Swedish Punsch.) And instead of dropping a shot of the Fernet into the stout, we just poured a little in.
It was pretty damn good. Especially now that winter’s here
This weekend’s edition of “I’ll Leave You with This” at the Cynic Cave sounds even more special than usual:
Comics will cut out most of their bullshit act and leave you with the joke/jokes they keep closest to their hearts- their closers. Jam packed with their own personal favorites, old faithfuls and maybe even some new tricks, I’ll Leave You With This will teach these comics their ABCs- ALWAYS. BE. CLOSING.
This month we get to welcome some rad out of towners, some Bay Area heavy hitters, a musical duo and even sexy jesus! (and David Gborie and Jane Harrison will make out for your viewing pleasure. Why? YOU’LL HAVE TO COME TO FIND OUT!)
Speaking of donuts… Bernalwood delivers some sad news:
It’s no one’s fault; Change is the only constant. Eagle Donuts opened in 1994, and Sherry from behind the counter — that’s Sherry, above — told Bernalwood she’s been here the entire time. She said rising rents weren’t so much of an issue. She said donuts just aren’t a very lucrative product these days, and costs keep going up. Milk prices, sugar prices, the minimum wage… all going up. Basically, Sherry said, after 20 years, it’s time to move on.
So on Monday, Eagle Donuts will close forever.
Stop in this weekend to get a final taste, and wish Sherry all the best.
On a quest for a burrito on my last full day in Bangkok, I found a scene almost worthy of a Twilight Zone episode: a food court Mission taqueria. Yes, that’s a taco truck and a mini Mission District in the belly of the fanciest mall I’ve ever been to. They’ve even got a Michelada on the menu.
The burrito looks pretty good:
