Hey fellow SF /Bay Area folk…

Did you know the daily behind the Tadich Grill are apparently bigots? So much in fact that the parents disowned their daughter many years ago for dating and then marrying a black man named Gene Upshaw (who for the record had an accomplished career and was also the need of the NFL Players Association)?  Read on…..

I love to see local favorites thriving and doing well. I’ve had a few of their meals myself (Munchery) and i’ve enjoyed virtually every one. Looking forward to seeing what Rigo brings to the table! (Personal opinion, not an ad fyi 🙂 )

 

It’s good to be Rigo.

Know what? I’m truly disgusted. This is why I only buy meat from one spot where I know what they believe in. Ugh

I’m so excited…

I’m so….. scared….

For my pocketbook that is!

Indie Mart!

One of my favorite all time shopping events is back on! After 8 months, Indie Mart SF is back! This Sunday, July 24th, at Thee Parkside, it’s going down! Everything you could ever want and more… shit ton of local and indie vendors selling their wares, vintage, makeovers, photo booths, quirky, accessories, bbq, food trucks, beer, shoes, stiff drinks, they will have it all!

There is also a focus on DIY’ers, live bands and sex kitten/f’d up makeovers!

This is one of the events I always try to make it to, as it’s always a ton of fun. The crowd is a mix of hipster (duh), marina chicks, rough, rugged, and chill. Everyone is out to shop, sip and have a good time. Some things i’ve seen for sale in the past has been shrunken heads, chunky rings, vintage dresses, long studded earrings, sunglasses, and cosmetics. Everytime I go I find a merchant I love love LOVE and can’t live without. And, they are all indie! INDIE! No Forever 21 or sponsored by Macy’s bullsh…. nah. Nah son….

And, this time around there will be street indie food vendors on site as well. Of course  Parkside will be selling their BBQ and tots, but for the first time there will be mobile food vendors representing as well. Brass Knuckle, Kung Fu Tacos, Angry Man Eats (had him last weekend at El Rio, his chicken and waffles were the ISH!), Pizza Hacker and Rice Paper Scissors will be slinging as well!

So, here’s the deets. Admission is a sliding scale of $3-5.00. It’s a fundraiser for the founder Kelly Malone’s cancer treatments. You can also donate $20.00 and get some freebies, a raffle ticket, and entry into the aftershow. You want entry into the bar where the bands play and drinks? You’ll need to be 21+. Otherwise, all are welcome.

Yes my 18+ or whatever peeps, you can come too. Your welcome.

Go…

Sad news for hungry bellies in the East Bay…

Jon’s Street Eats has announced this week (ending Feb 12) is his last week with his famed food cart out and about. He has accepted a chef position in Marin County. We are happy for him, but saddened for those who won’t get the chance to try his fabulous food.

Also came word today that Vamos Primos has effective immediately closed down their Parilla truck and won’t be out and about anymore. No more grilled chicken or steak with their sauce? Devastating! They will be missed, some of the nicest people with some of the best street food.

Let’s hope this isn’t a trend for 2011.

This day just got a lot brighter…

The news came out today… Homeroom Mac + Cheese will FINALLY open on February 15th!

I became familiar with their mac + cheese at one of the Pop-Up General shop days at Grace Street Catering. It was delish! So glad to hear the grand opening is less then a week away, as if there is one thing I truly love on the same level as a good cheeseburger, is good mac + cheese.

Oh Happy Day…
